Hello, I'm Dr Gary. I've been practicing veterinary medicine since 2007. I look forward to helping with your questions/ concerns.

You can use children's Benadryl to measure it. It comes in 12.5 mg per 5 mL (teaspoon). That would be 2.5 mg/mL. 0.5 mg would be 0.2 mL.

I hope this helps.

the lowest dose on cup is 2.5mls or 1/2tsp how do i figure that


You'll have to get a 1 mL syringe to measure out 0.2 mL. Otherwise, you could get a 1/8 tsp measurer and give ~ 1/2 of it.

You should be able to get a syringe from any vet or human pharmacy to correctly dose.
