I don't know if I'm especially good at wasting the stuff but I'm managing to go through 15 cc in a week or so, dosing Fuzz with approximately .25 cc, 3 times a day. This stuff is not cheap, just so you know. But it works!! So I'm not whining too loudly, hahahaha. I haven't yet made it through 5 consecutive days (hey, life happens, especially to us older folk); usually only making it through 2 consecutive days (.25 cc each dose, per day). Tomorrow is day 3, but it's also the Mr.'s birthday, besides being the 4th of July. We'll have to try to plan around her mid-day dose. Maybe once we hit the magic number of 5, we'll be able to cut back to once a day; MAYBE even stop for a while!

I understand the whining. I hate things that seem overpriced.

Have you looked around at other suppliers?

I notice a 4 pound container also that might be more economical (you might need to mix it up).

This place has free shipping for $49 purchase and sells the 60cc syringes for ~$11.

Also, look closely at the ingredients. I think one ingredient is bentonite, which could alone (in proper quantities) help. Maybe stretching it out? Using only a small amount of bentonite for one or two doses. You might also play with cutting back or twice a day.

Thanks, Lynx. I'm checking into your sources. I'm not sure what the proper dosages for the other products would be, though.

For now, I'm going to make her dose a little smaller, but still 3 times a day. And I'll be darned sure of not wasting much. Fuzz is pretty good about cleaning off the nozzle if she leaves any large (-ish) amounts on it.
