    20 drops = 1 cc = 1 ml

    Therefore 5 drops = 0.25 (1/4) ml or 0.25 cc

    In nursing school we were taught 15 drops = 1 cc.

    This is not an accurate way of measuring because it depends on the size of the dropper.

    You can pick up a 3cc syringe at the feed store, just one, without needle, for measuring. My vet keeps me supplied.
