    In looking up Zentel, it looks to be albendazole, the same drug as Valbazen, but Valbazen is 113.6mg per ml. Dosage of albendazole is 20 mg per kg (each 2.2 lb) of weight, if that helps.

    For example if she is 4 pound then I should give her 2ml or cc of zentel through a syringe am I right? One thing more should I give her directly or in water? Thanks

    That sounds correct 2 ml/cc given directly by mouth, not diluted in water.

    With a 20mg/ml solution the dose would be 0.45ml per *pound* orally, not in the water. Okay to round up to 0.5ml per pound.
