Syringes - How Much Medication Is Needed?

Pets may be sent home with liquid medications. An oral liquid medication must be given by mouth to be effective. An injectable liquid medication must be given by injection beneath the skin to be useful. Some injectable medications require that the medication is inserted into the muscle to be most effective. It is important that you understand how to read the syringes that are sent home so your pet gets the proper amount of medication at each dose. There is some confusion about metric words like milliliter (ml) and cubic centimeter (cc). These are just different names for the same amount of volume. In other words, one milliliter (1 ml) is equal to one cubic centimeter (1 cc). There are different kinds of syringes that may be used. If your pet needs only a small amount of an oral medication, you may receive a syringe that looks like this: 0.3 ml syringe This is a three-tenths milliliter syringe. It may be called a “0.3 ml” syringe or “0.3 cc” syringe. It is also known as an insulin syringe. Although it is labeled in “units” at the bottom of the syringe, each unit actually is one-hundredth of a milliliter (0.01 ml or 0.01 cc). Each small black mark equals 0.01 ml.

    Hi,
    I just bought a bottle of Noromectin 1% to use as heartworm preventative
    for my two dogs. I have 1ML/CC insulin needles and need to know how much
    of the Noromectin to draw for a 72 pound dog and a 25 pound dog. I do not
    want to make them sick, just trying to save a little money over the price of
    Heartgard.
    I've read here that the usual dose is 1/2 cc per 10 pounds, which would seem to mean a full 1ML needle would be enough for 20 pounds, etc. Math is not my strong suit. Any info will be useful. If I can't be certain of this, I will return the drug and protect them the other way.
    Thanks.

    First things first.
    What breeds are you speaking of here? Some herding breeds do not need to be given Noromectin or Ivomec in any form (other than the dose that is in HeartGard.)
    Secondly, it's 1/10 (one-tenth) of a cc per 10 pounds of body weight. So, for a 20 pound dog, 1 full cc (mL) would be an overdose. Instead, you would use 2/10 cc, which is a very, very small dose, and can literally be only a few drops.
    All of my dogs are well under 20 pounds except my English Bully and he's about 60 or so pounds so he received 6/10 cc and the rest get 2/10 or less.
    Please be careful when giving this medication and I always suggest to discuss it with your vet so that s/he is aware of what you are giving your pets.

    Thanks Oxford.
    Both dogs are basically mutts I got from the pound. So if the dosage is 1/10 of a cc per 10 pounds, I would need how many hash marks on the needle for the 72 pounder?
    For my 25 pounder, you said just a couple of drops. I can do that easily enough.
    My vet is a ghost. I've been there twice for rabies shots and heartworm tests and have yet to see the vet, only the vet techs. As he sells medications there, I don't think he's likely to help me.
    If you think I'm going to harm either one of them by trying this myself, I will take the stuff back. They are due for a monthly treatment on Oct. 1, so I need the info as soon as possible.

Some of it is critical to proper dosing and some of it is merely personal preference. What is the Difference Between U-40 and U-100? U-40 means there are 40 units of insulin per ...
