    Can anyone tell me how much soluble Terramycin powder should be added to a pint (20 fluid ounces) of water. I find the instructions on the pack confusing and I have an awful feeling that I may be using too much.

    Poppy the answer to your question is-Mix it at the rate of 1-4 tsp per gallon of water depending on the severity of the problem. Frankly I would throw it as far as I could and get some good antibiotics that are designed to fight what ever you are fighting.
