    How much Red Cell is safe to give doelings? They are about 20 lbs. I read 6 cc per 100 lbs... is that too much? I’m sending a fecal today.

    1.5cc's per 25 lbs
    So go a bit less than that.

    Thank you. I saw to give it everyday for a week and then once weekly after. Is this correct? At what point do you know to stop giving?
