Use this handy online calculator to calculate dosage
First, you need to enter the required dosage in the
first table. Usually you will select the mg/kg/dose option, as this is
typically how it is prescribed by a Veterinarian.
Second is dose frequency. Typically, you will leave
this alone...qD means single dose, and is the most prescribed method for
Reptile dosage. You will need to repeat the calculated dosage based on the
prescription. Example: Dose once every 72 hours fora total of five
Third, enter the weight of your Reptile
Fourth, enter the concentration of your suspension.
This will be on the label of your drug. Example 100mg/ml. One ml is equal
to 1cc, and you could find either on your label. If the concentration is
listed on a per ml basis (x/ml) then you will enter the top value (100 in
example) in the first selection box, and you will enter 1 in the second.
If your label gives the concentration in a fraction such as 125mg/5ml, you
would enter the 125 in the first box, and 5 in the second.
Make sure you make your selections correctly!
Below is the actual mathamatical formula:
|Dose (cc) =
x weight (kg)
|concentration (mg/cc) x
