X 0.10

The above calculations are based on delivering 5 mg of fenbendazole for every kilogram of bodyweight. The total dose is to be incorporated in the feed and fed as a single dose, or divided and fed over a period of ONE to SIX days.

The pail contains a measuring scoop which is calibrated in grams.

Caution
