It is added up as a total at the bottom... where it says total medication. It also gives total amount of kg (meaning the chickens) and total amount of chickens (numbers)How did you know that? I am suggesting editing the calculator to include that.
I actually might have added one 0 to many in the dosage... but it was just an example.It is added up as a total at the bottom... where it says total medication. It also gives total amount of kg (meaning the chickens) and total amount of chickens (numbers)
The medication is called Exolt and it is given thru the waterer to kill mites. They were really really bad so I opted for it. https://www.exzolt.com/
I thought you might and I also thought you’d be the best to work through making sure we could use this in the states.Okay, I understand what you're doing, and your calculator will work fine for any medication as long as you know how many mls per kg to give.
The specs on the product say it's 10 mg fluralaner per 1 ml and to give 0.5 mg fluralaner per kg body weight (equivalent to 0.05 mL Exzolt) administered twice, 7 days apart.

Many medications do not say how many mls per kg to give, they usually say to give mg/kg. And almost all veterinary formularies say mg/kg.
Do me a favor, pretend you're gonna use 22.7 mg/ml Baytril to treat some disease in your flock and see if you come up with the same number I came up with.
Your flock weighs 117.5 kg
Baytril dose is 20 mg/kg
The dose for a flock that size = 103.52 ml.

@abpatchy, I hope you don't think I'm picking on you, I actually think your calculator is quite clever!
