Dosage Confusion

Tucker's got a case of the wheezies and has been given Doxy and Baytril.

I'm confused how to read the dosage. I feel like school girl Barbie saying 'Math is hard'.

The baytril says 0.16 ml
The doxy says 0.26 ml

The syringe is a standard small animal size, and labeled at every 5 little increments with 0.1, 0.2, 0.3...all the way up to 1.0 ml.

So for the 0.16 ml dosage....do I pull to the 0.1 and then go 1 little increment notch above it?

If it were 0.18 ml dosage, would I pull to the 0.1 and go 3 little increment notches above that?

Yes, you've got it right: for the .16, go halfway between .1 and .2, and for .18 go almost to the .2 mark.

Errrr, yes, what Breyer said. Lol. I am SO bad with dosage directions too Storyseeker, so I am very glad Breyer is good at this!
You know, whenever I had to give my babies medications with a dropper syringe, they always put a little ink mark at the spot where I fill it up to, so I did not have to figure anything out. Thank the gods they did that, as I am a math idiot!
