    Late to bed now. Good night and good luck. You might PM Step and see if he can double check me. He's up late often and I think also has the book we all use for dosing.

    Oh, and keep it in the fridge.

    Subsequent doses starting tomorrow I think are cut in half after the loading dose, but I'll leave that to others.. Gotta go.

    I took the dosing off the board. Farrelli is correct with the amount of water to add and the dose. However, with this drug, you dose the amount he said twice daily, you don't cut this one in half on subsequent days. We do that with Baytril, but not the SMZ-TMP.
    I am sending you the page from the book so that you can see for the weight how much each little squirrel should get.
    Dose according to their individual weights if possible.
    Make sure that the squirrels are hydrated when using this or any sulfa drug.
    Give probiotics 2 hours prior to 2 hours after administering this or any antibiotic.

    Thank you farrelli!
