    One pound is approximately half a kilogram, 0.45 actually. So if you take the weight of your goat in kg and divide it by 0.45 you would have its weight in lbs.
    Different meds are dosed at different rates. Which antibiotic are you wanting to give?

    We need to know the antibiotic first.
    They all can vary.
