    I mentioned it because it can be used in poultry, dogs, cats and livestock.

    Welcome to BYC!

    Which pyrantel do you have, as in how many mg/ml?

    Just a quick look in one of my books and it looks like the most common dose is 4.5 mg/ml, so if you have the 50 mg/ml bottle the math looks like this:

    1 / 2.2 x 4.5 / 50 = 0.04 ml per pound orally. Repeat in 10 days.

    Let me know which one you have. [​IMG]
