If dog medicine comes in 60 gram bottles, how many doses cn one get from the bottle if a dose is 1/4 teaspoon. :(
I am not a math genius and my dog has seizures and I am trying to determine how long a bottle of medivine will the cost of treatment.

Every material has a different density (weight/volume). However, most liquid medicines are probably fairly close to water, ie 1 g = 1 mL. At any rate, that's the only assumption I can make from the info provided.

So if the bottle is 60 mL, a 1/4 teaspoon is about 1.25 mL, and you get about 48 doses.

Most US teaspoons are marked 1 teaspoon / 5 mL, but a "real" teaspoon is a tiny bit less, 4.9 something mL. I've ignored that difference. As pointed out above, the density is near 1, but if anything is probably slightly more than 1, so the bottle is probably a little less than 60 mL.

If you don't have spillage, you can probably expect at least 40 doses, maybe 45, or even 48.
