We work with a Shelter and from time to time we end up getting medications that normally cost us big $$ from other sources. (reliable of course), so sometimes we need assistance calculating the mixture of the meds to match what the animal is currently taking. We always double check before we start the substitution. So today we are mixing Lixotinic with doxycycline capsules in hopes of reaching a 1 cc dose = 16 mg doxy
Thank you in advance for the assistance.

Mixing lixotinic with doxycycline to establish 16 mg per 1cc?
Doxycycline capsules are available in 2 strengths - 100mg and 50mg.
If you have 100mg then you would need to dissolve one capsule in 6.25ml of solvent (Lixotinic).
1ml of the solution will provide 16mg of doxycycline.
If you have a 50mg capsule you would need to use 3.125ml of solvent.
Hope this helps.

Veterinary - 1. Do you think it is right that Nurses, or others, can pick and choose the procedures?
