# Worm medicines, odd request?

#### JDGreene

Does anyone have the ability to measure some worm medicines with a mg or grains scale? I don't have a scale or the medicine.

Basically what I need to know is the density of the medicine to convert the weight (g or mg) dose into a volume (ml) dose for a project I'm working on.

You just weigh 1ml of medicine and then weigh 1ml of water and let me know what they weigh. You can use anything really, such as 15ml medicine and 15ml of water, as long as both are the same volume.

I need to know these medicines:
10% Fenbendazole (paste)
22.2% Fenbendazole (granules)
1% Flubendazole (powder)
1.87% Ivermectin (paste)
7.75% Praziquantel (paste)
14.03% Praziquantel (paste)

Thanks.

10% Fenbendazole (paste)
Panacur and Safeguard Paste - 1 gram = 1 ml = 100 mg fenbendazole
1.87% Ivermectin (paste)
Ivermectin paste - 1 gram = 1 ml = 18.7 mg ivermectin
22.2% Fenbendazole (granules)
No clue. Do any of the products come with a measuring cup?
1.87% Ivermectin (paste)
7.75% Praziquantel (paste)
14.03% Praziquantel (paste)
Equimax - I think you can assume the same density as plain ivermectin.
1 gram = 1 ml = 18.7 mg ivermectin and 140.3 mg praziquantel.

Zimectrin Gold - I think you can assume the same density as plain ivermectin.
1 gram = 1 ml = 15.5 mg ivermectin and 77.5 mg praziquantel.

Quest Plus says this "Contains 20 mg moxidectin/mL (2.0% w/v) and 125 mg praziquantel/mL (12.5% w/v)"

Quest says this "Contains 20 mg moxidectin/mL (2.0% w/v)"

Well thats alright. Thanks.
That stuff is so darn expensive I never felt the urge to buy a pack just to weigh it.
