Goats are almost always off label and dosages are always wrong. 1cc per 100lbs is way too little.

Penicillin should actually be 1cc per 20 lbs.

Banamine: IM or SQ? How Often?

HIho,

I have a ND goatie with possible pneumonia and a fever of 105.2 F. My vet wants me to give her banamine. (I also have some LA200 coming for the infection).

Is banamine given IM or SQ - and do I just give one dose?

Thanks!

ok i got tylan 50 it was what i was told to use on pink eye whats the dose on it an is it about the same as la 200
as an eye drop...just one drop a few times a day shouldbe fine..as an injectable antibiotic, tylan 50 has to be dosed at 4 times the dose then Tylan 200.., Tylan 200 is 1 cc per 25 pounds while Tylan 50 is 4 cc per 25#..

La 200 is 1 cc per 20#

Yes its the same medication with a different carrier...Biomycin doesnt burn like LA 200...La and biomycin are great for pink eye, chlamydia ect...Tylan 200 is good for Upper resp. infection..

For pink eye, you literally just put in in the eye like eye drops. 1-2x a day depending on how much you put in each eye.
With pink eye I just squirt (without a needle) about 1/4cc in each eye once a day until clear.
