Exercise Number Two

Second up is how to calculate an oral drench of 9.6% amprolium based on this:

Source: http://www.manorvets.co.uk/ckfinder/userfiles/files/Manor chickens.pdf

What the above picture says is that the dose should be 20 mg of amprolium per 1kg (kilogram) of bird weight.

Calculate doses for the following:
• 2 ounce chick
• 7 ounce chick
• 1 pound bird
• 10 pound bird

-Kathy

Edited to change 200 ounce to 7 ounce

Ugh Math ! LOL
Starting with your first post: in US measurements

If the directions say for a mix at 0.012% = "8 fl oz per 50 gal" then we need to find how many ounces per gallon.
50 gallons divided by 8 ounces = 0.16 oz solution per gallon

1 Teaspoon = 0.166666667 (1/6) Ounce
1 Teaspoon = 4.92892159 Milliliters

The first is a normal dose. The second is 2x dose for severe. The third is 1/2 of normal dose. So the answer is as follows:

0.012%: .16oz solution per gallon = 0.96 tsp = 1 tsp or 4.73 ml - for normal solution.
0.024%: .32oz solution per gallon = 1.92 tsp = 2 tsp or 9.46ml - for stronger solution.
0.006%: .08oz solution per gallon = 0.48 tsp = 1/2 tsp or 2.36 ml - for the remainder of treatment.

Now to work on the second part of your query.

I think it's interesting to see how different people come up with the answers! Thanks for sharing.

It would be great if UK members can work it out too because the measurements are slightly different in metric. I only used the US system of measurement.

I start by converting to metric.

9.6% Corid = 16 ounces = 473.176 ml
@ 0.024%, 473.176 ml makes 50 gallons, so 473.176 รท 50 = 9.46352 ml and I round up to 9.5 ml for one gallon.

The 0.012% amount is 1/2 that (4.75ml) and the 0.006% amount is 1/4 the 0.024% amount (2.375 ml)
