Customer: replied 7 years ago.
Actually i use the equine paste at a ratio of 1cc per 5 lbs. I am a dog breeder and a professional groomer and boarder so I needed a more cost effective method of deworming. What would the ratio for a cat be?
Expert:  Dr. Ellen replied 7 years ago.
The dose in cats is the same as dogs (50 mg/kg for 3 days).
I'm not sure off the top of my head what the concentration of the paste is. Do you have some handy so you can tell me?
