So, how do you bake the clay onto a C&C cage? That won't fit in my oven LOL.

No, I made a miniature C&C cage out of Granitex and FIMO. I also made 4 pigs to put inside it, and I made wood shavings, hay, a water bottle, and a dish of pellets.

The grids and shavings took the longest... I'd say about six hours for the cage and extras, then I made the pigs afterwards. It was worth it to see the look on Dan's face when I handed it to him.

You can see photos of my first effort here. http://www.guinealynx.info/forums/viewtopic.php?t=7394&highlight=red+blur+fimo

That is too cute! I don't think I'd have the patience to ever make that. I've never done a 6 hour long project. But both the teddy bears and the harmonica quartet I've made took like forever.

Thanks, I've also made a neat little Halloween set that sold minutes after it got out of the oven since my mom bought it LOL. So I'll have to get a photo of it and put that up on my website as well.

I think my favorite things to make out of clay are teddy bears, harmonica players, singers, dogs, and rabbits. I can't seem to make guinea pigs that look that great yet.

Hey guys, please keep this stuff off the emergency board. Why not go to the other thread or start a new one in general chat and leave this one to medical problems.

It used to bother Pinta because she only had time to scan for problems so non-related posts were a real headache. I'm still hoping she will have time to post in the fall/winter.

Someone have pity on my poor math skills.

I have 34 pigs to dose with Baytril and have calculated all their individual doses according to a 50 mg/ml concentration.

Now I have Baytril tablets that are 22.7 mg and I'd like to get the same concentration.

By my calculations, if I put 2 of these tablets in .09ml of water, I will get the 50 mg/ml concentration and can carry on as usual. Is this correct?

Forgive what may seem like a silly question but I failed every math course since the 8th grade and don't trust my abilities in that area.

It's not a silly question when you are dosing medication, and your figure is wrong, to get the correct concentration you need 10 times more water.

You need two 22.7mg tablets (that corresponds to 44.4mg) and 0.9 ml of water to get 50.44 mg/ml concentration, which I consider adequate.

Just be careful with the decimal point when you make yous calculations, and never skip the "0" to the left of the decimal point.

I get 0.9, but the pill is going to have filler. I'm pretty sure you aren't going to be able to dissolve 2 pills into 0.91 mL of water...

Thank you so much! I'm glad that I waited.

I thought it would be 0.9 mL of water then?

Here's my reasoning (I haven't done math since June, but I did get an A):

50mg = 45.4mg
------ --------
1mL x

So x equals 0.9

(I can't make math on the computer look right)

Hi, Paulo, you were faster!

That's kind of what I was doing, Val. The only math I know how to do is:

50 mg 45.4 mg
_____ = _________

1 ml X

And I did screw up the decimals when dividing.

Yeah, that's why math is the only homework I don't type.

Yeah, the board kindly deletes extra spaces from typing.

Helpful, no?

I am posting this in a difference message so that you get the right concentration and to prevent any more messing up with numbers.

According to your calculation, two 22.7mg tablet and .09 ml would get you a concentration of 504.44 mg/ml. That would be pretty dangerous.

What you need is 0.9 ml of water.

See the difference that the first "0" makes? 0.09 ml and 0.9 ml.

Never skip that first "0" before the decimal point to be safe.

I get it Paulo, thanks.

I dissolved 2 tablets into .9 ml of water.
