    Default Blue pop rocks dosage

    My 20 packet trial from Omeprazole Direct arrived. The packets say treatment is 1 packet per 385lb; prevention is 1 packet per 770lb. Is it necessary to give that much? My ulcer boy is probably around 1100 pounds, maybe a bit under... and he's 16.3 .

    Also, he's on 1 gram of bute twice a day (hence the ulcers). Does it matter if he gets the blue pop rocks in the same meal as bute?

    I'd say if he's on bute all the time you're probably better off giving 1 full packet a day, maybe more. Yes, it's OK to dose them together.

    Keebler (900 pounds) is down to about 1/2 packet a day, more if I ship him somewhere. But YMMV.
