Drew :

Hello, thanks for your question today! I am Dr. Drew, and I am a licensed veterinarian. I'll be happy to help you in any way I can.

Drew :

Pyrantel Pamoate is usually dosed in the range of 1mL per 10 to 20 pounds of body weight.

Drew :

For 4 pound kittens, I'd give 0.2 - 0.25 mL each

Drew :

For the 10 pound mom, I'd give 0.5-0.6mL

Customer:

how much is that in cc?

Drew :

ml is the same as cc

Customer:

i have a syringe that the aspca gave me for clavamox.

Customer:

ok thank you very much i also have a 12 pounder and a 14 pound cat.

Drew :

you can use the same range for all cats, 1 mL per 10 to 20 pounds. Pyrantel is very safe.

Customer:

ok i was worried that i might harm them instead of helping. god bless you and have a very happy fourth of july. Happy Birthday America!!!

Drew :

Glad to help -- a happy 4th to you as well! :-)
