I have FINALLY received my sulmet from Jeffers today for little Caper (from earlier thread). Stacey gave me the dosages...thank you! BUT, I have the powder and am not sure how to dilute it to give a drench so that I have the right amount of Sulmet in each cc. The directions don't even mention goats. I want to start him ASAP, so if anyone can help, please let me know how to get this stuff into him. I will weigh him first. Thank you!

Thanks, Liz! I have a 1 lb. package, actually, or 453.5g. It does say to add the package to 1 gallon of water for cattle, calves and swine. Does that sound about right for goats, too? Then use that solution as you indicated? Brooke

That would be the equivalent to getting the gallon of premixed liquid I believe, better yet so you aren't wasting a premixed package that you won't need.....if you have a scale...30 grams is equal to 1 oz....so you have a 15 oz package....and to mix it with 128oz of water....so mix 1oz powder to 8 oz water. 1 oz is = 1tsp.

Wow! Are you a math teacher? :wink: I was going to mix a quart and a quarter pound of the powder, but your suggestion seems much easier. Thanks again! Brooke

I use Sulmet from Ft Dodge- the 1 lb package.
I make a 12% solution by putting 4Tbsps of the powder in 1 pint of water. I keep this solution in a jar in the fridge til I use it up.
I give the same dosage as mentioned above.
