    You need to re-weigh your rats in grams or kg. I cannot give you a dose with that measurement.
    you CAN express both syringes into a small bottle with a tight lid when you are ready and pull up the appropriate dose that way. Its what I do with full tubes.

    1:3.3 OK so this would be 1 lb (454 grams) and 3.3 oz? THAT I can work with (548 grams)

    The dose would be 0.09 ml once. Make sure to cap the bottle between dosing rats as it will evaporate very quickly.

    So I would just dose them both once? Is there anything I need to do before or after like give them a bath or something?

    Nope, just dose them the once. At about 2 weeks check to see if the scabs are gone or are dried up and easy to scratch off without bleeding.

    what if the dose is incorrect for the medication I was given? I don’t know what it is still.

    I’m doing a deep clean right now (in the shower, very thorough cleaning)

    If I put the treatment on both my boys afterwards, what do I need to do? Can I just deep clean again when I usually would (every month/28 days)? or should I deep clean again next week? I usually surface clean every week and spot clean everyday as it is what works for me.

    Is is harmful if they ingest it by licking themselves or each other even though it is between their shoulders/neck where they shouldn’t be able to reach?

    Also, would it be okay to put the medication from the syringes into a cork bottle? Like the ones you can find at the dollar store that can be reseated or do I need to find something else to use?

    Thank you in advance. I know it is a lot of questions but it would be nice to know.
