how would milligrams be converted to cc's ?

by Ron Martin
(Lacombe, La.)

I would like to give my cat liquid Benydryl for itching and the ratio is 2 mg for every pound of body weight...the cat is 16 pounds so the dosage would be 32 mg's. I have ml/cc syringes and I cannot find a conversion. Can you please help ?

Thank you.....Ron Martin.....Lacombe, La.

First off, the calculations and info here are not intended for the use in practical medical treatment whatsoever, Humans or Animals.
But, for this type of calculation: This is a matter of conversion and cross multiplication.

Step #1 - What you have

Children's Benadryl contains 12.5mg / 5mL(cc)
