    Looks like there is an error in the polio information found here:
    http://www.dairygoatinfo.com/f28/polio-b1-thiamin-dosages-polio-22955/

    "Fortified Vitamin B complex contains 100mg/ml thiamin/B1 5cc per 100 pounds of body weight


    Dosages of thiamin/B1 Part 2.

    1cc of 200mg/ml thiamin/B1 (from the vet) per 100 pounds of goat weight.

    Regular B complex contains 12.5mg/ml of thiamin/B1 so 16cc per 100 pounds of body weight.
    B Complex Plus contains 12.5 mg/ml of Thiamin/ B1 so 16cc per 100 pounds of body weight.

    Fortified Vitamain B complex contains 100 mg/ml Thiamin/B1 2cc per 100 pounds of body weight."

    Also the "Vitamain" typo.

    They are comparing two different strengths of Thiamin (500mg/ml and 200 mg/ml) and the dosages of Fortified B complex are correspondingly different. What I don't understand is why, because they don't explain that. Like, "Oh, if your vet recommends the 500mg/ml strength go with this" or "Day 1-5 go with this, then day 6-10 go with that" or something, anything, to explain why one vs the other. I'm hesitant to change anything (other than the typos) without knowing why it is the way it is. :(

    Here's the whole thing:
    Dosages of Thiamin/B1 part 1:

    1cc of 500 mg/ml thiamin/B1 (from vet) per 100 pounds of goat weight.
    2 and 1/2 cc of 200 mg/ml thiamine/B1 (from vet) per 100 pounds of goat weight

    Regular B Complex contains 12.5mg/ml of Thiamin/B1 40 cc per 100 pounds of body weight

    B Complex Plus contains 12.5 mg/ml of Thiamin/B1 40 cc per 100 pounds of body weight

    Fortified Vitamin B complex contains 100mg/ml thiamin/B1 5cc per 100 pounds of body weight

    Dosages of thiamin/B1 Part 2.

    1cc of 200mg/ml thiamin/B1 (from the vet) per 100 pounds of goat weight.

    Regular B complex contains 12.5mg/ml of thiamin/B1 so 16cc per 100 pounds of body weight.
    B Complex Plus contains 12.5 mg/ml of Thiamin/ B1 so 16cc per 100 pounds of body weight.

    Fortified Vitamin B complex contains 100 mg/ml Thiamin/B1 2cc per 100 pounds of body weight.
