    Welcome to BYC

    It entirely depends on the brand/type of medicine you are using.

    400mg is not 1 tsp but actually .10 (one tenth) of a teaspoon.

    Here is a link for Oxytetracyline and Tetracycline Powder Doses (I'm assuming that it may be one of these because you didn't specify)

    You'll have to scroll through the page to find the product you're using.

    Welcome to BYC and the coop! There's a lot of great peeps here! Feel free to ask lots of questions. But most of all, make yourself at home. I'm so glad you decided to joined the BYC family. I look forward to seeing you around BYC. It is a 1/8 teaspoon measurement or you can use a syringe that measures milligrams. Good luck with her.
