1. You are volunteering at a local vet when a lady brings in her dog - a Scottish Terrier. This dog weighs in at 8 kg.

After inspecting the dog the vet decides she needs medicine. You are asked to help measure out the medication for the dog, the bottle reads ‘0.75mL per kg of animal per week’. How much medicine will you need to give the dog initially?

2. The lady explains that she has another dog at home - a small Saint Bernard, who the vet knows well. This dog also needs this medicine. Look up the following site to find the average weight of a Saint Bernard:

3. Calculate the amount of medicine needed by the lady each week.

4. As well as helping the vet when she needs your assistance, you are also required to fill out the stock list at the end of the week so new products can be ordered. You noticed that this week the vet has used 3 whole bottles of the same medicine. If each bottle is 135 mL total, how many serves (each serve being the amount given per kg) were used of the medicine this week?

4. Using sites provided, research one piece of technology used by modern vets, what it does, and how dosage or treatment differs for different species and different sized animals; the more detailed the better. If possible, include examples of specific dosages or methods of use on a specific animal.
