I'm worried about overdosing on copper:eek: I'm using the syringe and I have a doe that's pretty small and I need to copper bolus her.

Will I overdose her if I give her 1cc for 60 pounds? I can pick her up and carry her but she's getting pretty heavy:p thanks:)

What are you using? The copper boluses I have state 2 g's at 22 lbs. I know my kinders are around 60 lbs but since I put the capsule down their throat whole, I actually give 4 g's, so it is time released in their system, and I give them more since I am in a very copper deficient area...

Okay, so you got the copasure ones, and she is 60 lbs. I would give her a 2g to start with wait a couple weeks, and if you notice improvement then that should be enough, some improvement but want more then give her another one. That is what I did my 1st time giving it to my kinders.
