micrograms to ml

Postby Guest » Tue Jun 19, 2007 11:45 pm

I have a liquid medication, but I am told to administer it (to a dog) as a number of micrograms per kilogram of body weight. How would I know how many milliliters to use?

check the drug literature that came with it (or ask the Vet) how many milligrams (or micrograms) of the medication are in a milliliter (there is no standard; every medication is different).

when you know the concentration of the medication (mg/mL, or ug/mL), then you can deteremine how much to administer.

I have a prescription for Symlin. How do I convert the micograms to the units on the syringe?
