    I have 3 pot belly pigs----one boar, 4 1/2 mos. old; 2 females around 10 mos. old each. I believe both girls are pregnant, and would like to worm them (they are most likely due next month, if not next week). I bought a packet of Atgard to worm them with, but can't find individual worming dosages (I am going to put it in each ones bowl of feed). I also can't find how many times/how long I should feed it to them. Does anyone have an idea? I will also post this on BYHs.

    I found on one site to add 250 mg of Atgard per pound of feed. This is confusing, as I feed each pig 1 cup of feed 2x a day. I guess I need to convert cups to pounds, unless someone can give me a better idea of how much wormer to put in one cup of feed.
