I bought a 52g package of Prohibit powder and am looking to mix it up. There are several options on the back which I know I need to use the sheep instructions vs cattle but I’m not sure which to use. I have prior to this always bought it from my vet already mixed with the dosage so I’m a bit lost.
I know prohibit is serious stuff so I’m just not looking to take a gamble.
Am I mixing it in 1 gallon of water? Or 17.5 fl oz?

Also, what is the dosage for said mixture and am I able to store this at all in an airtight container after it’s mixed??
Thanks!!!!

This is what TGS' medicine cabinet thread says:

Prohibit/Levamisole--(AKA Levasol and Tramisol)*12mg/kg oral dose with meat withdrawal of*4*days and*milk*withdrawal of 3 days. Solution prepared by dissolving a 52 gram powder packet in 1quart (943ml) of water. This yields a solution with 49.6 mg/ml. If dosing kids, it is safer to dilute further (1 packet in 2 quarts of water), and then administer twice the amount listed on the chart. The larger volume administered will then provide a wider margin for safety if there are small errors in dosing.
Warning: levamisole has a narrow margin of safety and can be toxic if overdosed.
Warning: Do not use if the goat is ill or down. It can kill them.
