Depends on how much you'd be feeding it at the time.
You could possibly do a fraction taken off of 1/4 of the pill. Powder that part and sprinkle some in the formula (only enough that you know it'll suck that bit in. You can take a glass dropper and stick this in its mouth, though. But very gently and still to the front of the mouth. Don't shove it down it's throat - lol.
I'd do a 10-day dosage.
Just be sure it's really uri before you treat it.

well from what i see hes clicking, and from what ive researched.. clicking usually means uri.
i found out that theres tetracycline in the form of fish medication. is that the same thing?
but... i guess you can call it a step forward: HE PEED!... lol and from what i noticed he seems a bit more accepting of the formula im giving him :D

I haven't read the whole thread, but you need to rub it's anus. It needs to be warm/moist Q-Tip and you need to rub it on the bum (under neath the tail, not on the tail) firmly and in circular motions to stimulate going to the bathroom compared to rubbing its stomach.

Warmth, constant feeding, lots of stimulaton/exercise, and you will basically be good!
