You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm currently typing up my reply.

Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 3 months ago.

I understand. Dosing for amprolium (Corid) for such a small cat is 60 mg once daily for 5 days. Amprolium is bitter and care should be taken that the dose in ingested and not spit out. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

I don't know what that is I need it broke down to me I don't want to kill him
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 3 months ago.

It's 60 mg/cat of that size - not 60 mg/lb or 60 mg/kg. If you have the amprolium 9.6% (96 mg/mL) oral solution, you would give Blankie 0.6 mL of that solution once daily for 5 days. Please let me know that I've clarified this for you. You'll need a tuberculin syringe to measure such a small dose accurately.
