My 2.6 lb kitten was diagnosed with a respiratory infection

Customer Question

My 2.6 lb kitten was diagnosed with a respiratory infection at the vet today. He gave me amoxicillin and showed me where on the syringe to dose her. But when I got hone the syringe was not in the back. It is after hours and all I have is a child's medicine syringe which looks a lot wider than the one the vet had and I don't know how much to give her. Can you help? The syringe I have is in ML's

Hi, I can help you with your question today.
For a tiny kitten like yours, give 0.3 ml by mouth every 12 hours. Ml or milliliters is the same as CC or cubic centimeters.
Please let me know if you have further questions. I am happy to continue until I provide the service that you seek.
