ANSWER: Hello Jeffrey,

Sure, it does that after like 4 or 5 follow ups for some reason.  :-)
Great, let me know their weights again & I can go ahead & figure the doses.  I know they didn't weigh much!  Do you have tiny syringes also

I hope they are doing a little better.

QUESTION: 4.44@ 3.75 gram how do you figure the dose I have around 20 different lizards and would really like to learn how to figure the dosage

Answer
Hello Jeffrey,

Thanks.  If you would like, you can email me at:  Drache_613@hotmail.com  
I can go over the dosing formula with you, it is pretty easy.   
He is 3.75 grams?   That would be .004kg.  So the dose would be .002ml  which is a small amount.  You will need the .05ml syringe.  
Do you have the panacur yet?
How is he doing today?
Do you have tiny syringes also?  You will need some small syringes to load up the medication.

Let me know how things are going.

Expertise

I can answer questions pertaining to health, UVB specifics, overall husbandry care & supplementation, analysis of blood test results, and behavioral problems & handling. I can answer questions pertaining to bearded dragons, leopard geckos, iguanas, uromastyx & ball pythons. I can answer adeno virus related questions in bearded dragons, & then specifically about the testing methods as well. I am beginning an Pogona Adeno Testing Society in 2008 which will help to begin to start some standardization within the bearded dragon colonies of the breeders who choose to test.

Experience

I have been working with bearded dragons for over 5 years now, as well as leopard geckos, too. I am currently doing rescues, as well. I hope to be able to educate people prior to them purchasing an exotic pet in order to avoid any health crisis with them.

Education/Credentials
I have a master's degree in sports medicine & physiology, & 1 year of vet tech schooling, & am currently working on a reptile certification through the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council.
