I have already gave the girls a bath with Nizoral shampoo and used a bit of monistat cream on the visible sores. There is one small spot on Cocoa's shoulders and a few tiny spots on her groin. Penelope does not show any symptoms, but they are cage mates. Cocoa's hair is visibly thinning, but no other sores.
We just ordered Program (oral suspension) for cats 11-20 lbs. I will get their exact weights, but if I remember correctly from Saturday's weigh-in Cocoa is just about 1060 g and Penelope is around 1100 g.
I understand the concentration is key here, and I hope the package gives that in the fine print. If not, I guess I should use the figures Charybdis gave of 90 mg/ml?
So, Cocoa (my 1060 g pig) should get 0.3 ml of the oral suspension mixed with about 1 ml of flax seed oil. I give this orally. Should I also make sure she has food in her stomach, such as her favorite veges?
Should I use the same dose for Penelope, my other pig who is a bit heavier?
Also, when should I repeat this. In 30 days? Just two doses total?
Thanks, I want to make sure to get this right.
Since the package of Program I am buying is for a cat, will the frequency be the same as it is for a pig? The link you sent me to states the dose will "vary from 30mg/kg to 45mg/kg to 90 mg/kg." I am not sure exactly how to interpret that for a pig; which is it?
Where I work we keep sick animals in our isolation room, we had 3 ringworm piggies no one else in the room was infected. Temps in that room are kept at about 75 Degrees Fahrenheit so its pretty warm.
