Yes, that is the medication I was referring to. One of my outdoor kittens-----around 12-14 weeks old (maybe that old, but not sure as they were dumped by someone)----is not acting like himself. This just started this evening or afternoon. When we went out to do chores, he was sitting in the goat barn----he's usually out running around and foloows us as we do chores. He didn't even get up when we went in, and when the goats came in for their feed, one even stepped on him and he basically just just laid there after a slight struggle. I don't think the goat hurt him at all, but he definately doesn't feel good and I'm thinking infection as he's been vaccinated. I thought I could give him something to make him feel better until I can get him to the vet on Monday-----why do they always get sick on a Saturday after the vet is closed?

Anyway, the only things I have are the water soluble Duramycin-10 and some injectable penicillin (which is for livestock also, and I don't think penicillin is good for cats----affects their kidneys or liver, I think.
Oh, I would dose the cat by mixing the powder as for a chicken, I guess and I have syringes I could just give him a dose with----that's why I asked if anyone would know the dosage for a cat.
I forgot to say that the kitten also has very slight diarrhea-----but that could be because he ate some canned cat food I had in the goat barn for my adult barn-cat (the kittens get dry food).
