Perhaps .001 cc per gram?

In Reply to: Panacur dosage for leos posted by Starling on May 12, 2003 at 18:08:35:

Just wondering if you meant to say .001 cc/gram (assuming a 10% solution)...

My vet recommends a 0.05 cc dose for a 50 gram gecko... and that is one of the more aggresive doses I've heard of (100mg/kg).

Most books and other literature only call for up to 50mg/kg (Including "Understanding Reptile Parasites" by Dr. Klingenberg), which works out to .025 cc for a 50 gram animal.

If I'm doing the math right, .01 cc per gram (usuing 10% solution) would work out to 1000mg/kg dosing, which would be way up there.

:The dosage I was given by my vet for leos is .01 cc per gram (per gram that your leo weighs)

::I have never had a problem with worms but I know Panacur is a good wormer. It is actually a horse wormer.I use it for my dogs and puppies but I don't know the dosage for a leo I do the dogs by the pound. I am sure somebody on here has used it and knows how much to give.

:::For those people who have a lot of experience with Leopard geckos, what kind of wormer have you found to be the most effective and the safest and where have you been purchasing it?

:::Thanks in advance,
