    Is the correct Biomycin dosage 4.5cc per 100lbs every other day for 6 doses?

    Sue Reith said for uterine prolapse it is 1 cc per 100lb 2 x a day and Vicki has said over and over that with goats you don't use stuff every other day so pm Vicki or Kaye for absolute correct doseage.
    Also what strength is your biomycin? this was for the 200

    OK per Saanedoah.com in Goat 101

    Tetracyclines are widely distributed to the heart, kidney, lungs, muscle, pleural fluid, bronchial secretions, sputum, bile, saliva, synovial (joint) fluid, and ocular fluids.

    DOSE #2 : Can also be dosed at 3ml per 100 lbs. (6 mg/lb) once daily.
    Effective blood levels are achieved in 2-4 hours. The serum concentration peak occurs in plasma by 4 hours

    Thanks so much Sondra. I overlooked that in 101. I have a doe with foot rot due to the never ending rain that we need so much. Not complaining just treating ;)
