Forum rules
Dear forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Milligrams to cc's

Postby SylviaP » Fri Apr 06, 2007 2:10 am

My last question was answered and I am very grateful but I asked the wrong question.

The correct question is: how many milligrams in a cc since my syringes are measured in cc's? I need to give 6 milligrams of a paste per pound of weight.

Thanks in advance. Sylvia

With medications, especially those in liquid form, the weight of medication per volume is usually noted. Example: 5 mg per 5 ml.

This information should be on the container label. If not, look on the informational sheet supplied with the medication if one was provided. If you can't find this information, call the vet who gave you the medication.
