Duramycin-10 Dosing help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I have a hefty Cochin hen who has the sneezes, coughing, and wheezing, and bubbles in her eye :'( . She is otherwise in healthy good spirits. I can not find how to convert the dose to a 1qt water amount. I want to try and save her. I have looked for the dosing amount online and in this forum but can not find it. Please help, I am really worried about her

Let's do a little math.  What are the dosing requirements?  How much med to how much water?  Or are they doing Xmg/Ylb of body weight?  (I hate it when they do that.  Trying to weigh a chicken is the pits!)

All it says is 400-800mg per gallon and that 6.4oz of powder will make 12.5-25gal of medicated water

Does it say how much medication per ounce in it's dry form?

Well, the math says that to create a quart of this med at the maximum directed dose you would need 0.007 oz. of the powder.  How you figure out the quantity that 0.007 ounces is... I have no idea.

The dosage is 1 tablespoon per gallon of water. Simply make a gallon of the mixture and draw 1 quart from the mixture. Put the rest in the fridge for the next day, then the next day etc...
