So to use a pill made for dosing humans. Let's say your lizard weighs 1.5pounds. And you weigh 110 pounds. Your dose is one pill every morning and evening. What is your iguana's dose??
Well how many of your iguanas does it take to weigh a total of 110 pounds? You divide 110 by 1.5. That is 73.3 of 1 1/2 pound iguanas. So, you need 1/73rd of a pill per dose. You need an extremely accurate scale to create that dose. Plus the human dosage must be downsized somewhat because of iguana's slower metabolisms.
Another way is to weigh one pill. and then add lactose or some other edible powder to make a new dose that is 73 times heavier than one pill. Of course the pill gets ground into a fine powder and then added to enough powder to equal 72 times the weight of the pill. Now you have enough medicine to make 73 doses. But you still need a special scale to measure them out\, but at least each dose is not so tiny.
College chemistry labs have the right kinds of scales. Also some advancedchemistry programs in high schools(grades 9-12). You might be able to find an accurate beam scale also.
It would be nice to find the human scientific name ofhe veterinary medicine Baytril. Itmight be something\that doctors often prescribe.
Help! My computer is stuck. Whenever I go back to make a correction, it replaces the next character with the one I just tapped. So I cant separate typos like itmight. and "ofthe" and "advancedchemistry".
