    I bought some dog wormer today. When I went to use it I was confused by the dosage instructions. It said 5ml per 10 lbs. Simple enough there but I can't find a ml dispenser. All I have are measured by CC's. Can anyone tell me how much to give a 3 pound dog and a 5 pound dog? What about the 35 pound one? Oh and don't forget about the 2 pound one. and then there are the almost 2 week old puppies that I don't know how much they weigh. Their mother and father weigh 3 pounds and they are very tiny. Probably going to skip them this time. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    I found this chart helps me out sometimes [​IMG]

    1 mL (milliliter) is equivalent to 1 cc (cubic centimeter)
    Kg (kilogram) - Doses for most medications and supplements are written in kilograms (kg).
    1 kg equals 2.2 pounds.

    Weight and Equivalents
    1 mg (milligram) = 1/65 grain (1/60)
    1mg = 1000 ug or mcg (ug & mcg= micrograms)
    1,000 mg = 1 gram (g)
    1 gram (g)= 15.43 grains (15). 1 gram weighs about the same as one regular paper clip
    1,000 g = 1 kilogram or 2.2 pounds
    1 grain (gr) = 0.065 gram (60 mg)
    1 ounce = 1/16 pound, 28.4 grams
    1 pound = 0.454 kg., or 454 grams
    1 kg equals 2.2 pounds, 1,000 grams (To convert pounds to kilograms: pounds x 0.4536 = kilograms)
    Approximate Household Measures for oral administration:
    20 drops = 1 ml (cc)
    1 teaspoon = 5 ml (cc)
    1 Tablespoon = 15 ml (3 teaspoons), 1/2oz
    1 cup = 16 tablespoons = 240 ml
    1 liter (l) = 1,000 ml (cc), 1.06 quarts

    Fluid Equivalents
    1 fluid ounce = 29.57 mL (30), 2 Tablespoons
    1 pint = 16 fluid ounces, 473.2 ml (500)
    1 quart (qt) = 946.4 ml (1000)
    1 gallon (gal) = 3785.6ml(4000)

    MandyH You'll shoot your eye out!

    That equals half or .5cc per pound.
    3 lb dog= 1.5cc
    5lb dog=2.5cc
    35lb dog= 17.5cc (crap that 3 and a half teaspoons!)
    2 lb dog=1cc
    The puppies I would wait until 6 weeks of age.
