Re: OT - yo! Nurses! help on this one


Josh is of course right Kitty, but another factor is the %of medication in
the liquid dilutent and the amount lost. There is always loss with liquid
medications. That's why 12 instead of 12.5. Every time you take a dose out
of the bottle there is a slight loss . Measuring syrup is not a exact thing
, close but not exact.This assumes that all goes well and you don't loose
some struggling to get it given. If you have to fight your pet you may only
get ten doses per bottle.
