Goats/Baby goat


Should I mix the Duramycin-10 Tetracycline Soluble Powder with water or would Gatorade work and how much fluid will I need to mix it with They have the measurements for mixing in a gallon of water ... He is still nursing from mom..Thank you so much!

Just use 1/4 teaspoon of the duramycin mixed with perhaps 10 cc of gatorade, mix well, and give orally.  I use the small diamter aquarium tubing but to about 4 inches in length to attach to the end of a 10 or 12 cc syringe and this allows me to insert the tubing into the kid's mouth and over the tongue a little bit to more easily orally drench their medicines - it is also less of a bulk to get into the kid's mouth than the end of the syringe.  Hope this helps - keep me posted - Donna
