How much Dex for a roughly 600 gram cavy about 6 months old?

Dex?

Dexamethasone is used for shock according to Carpenter's Formulary.

4-5mg/kg SC, IM, IP, IV
-------------------------------------------
Just noticed there are two entries for dexamethasone. The one above is for shock. The one below is listed as an anti-inflamatory:

0.5-2.0mg/kg PO, SC, then decreasing dose q12h X3-14 days

Also listed:
0.6mg/kg IM

Just talked to Chary. She has 2mg/ml. I told her to give 1.5ml to the pig.

Holy crap- is that a bird cage? Those poor pigs. Don't tell me that poor Chary has even more pigs to take care of, when she said before the breeder dump that she was full?

I wish I could help.

Oh no, this looks terrible. The pig in the back looks all hunched up, like Maggie May did. And the one in front--is that a raw patch with bleeding on its right front side?

Oh, my dear god. Have the previous owners been turned into the authorities? Or something. That is just awful.

Stupid, stupid people. .

I hope they will be ok. We're they dumped on you, or did you pick them up somewhere?
