My Vet tells my 2x the listed for sheep. That's what I've given in the past.

I have a bottle on which the vet wrote the dosage for alpacas(Cydectin) I give 2cc for every 11 pounds the alpaca weighs. I weigh each animal that shows pale eye membranes, and give the required amount orally. Safeguard no longer seems to work here, so I use Cydectin.
