I decided to treat my 3 hens for their bumblefoot. So I go to the feed store and ask. All they have is cattle bolus size Albon. A pill treats a 200 pound calf. So I buy the pill. It's 5 grams, which is 5000 milligrams. The dose for a 4 pound chicken is about 10 milligrams. So I put the pill in a cup of water and grind it up in the coffee grinder. Now I have 5000 milligrams in a cup of water which is 240 milliliters. And the dose comes out to a half a milliliter. There are 5 milliliters in a teaspoon. But since I'm a nurse I have a one ml. syringe, and now I can give the dose. Moral? Sometimes you just have to make due with what you have.
