    Is there something anywhere that lists it in teaspoons and not ml, or mg per huge amounts of water? I'm guessing by what's on the back of the package and the guy at the feed store seemed clueless. He's have me dropping a whole tsp into a quart and he seemed to be guessing.

    In this case I'm referring to terramycin. It's the only drug available around here.

    Update - found on McMurry's site to used 1/2 tsp per quart for treatment. They also mention half that strength for "maintenance".

    Maintenance antibiotics? I thought that would just make the bugs more resistant.

    This is for keets, btw.
