    Hello,


    I took Billy to the vets the other day as he has conjunctivitus again.

    He is on a diet so I got him weighed while we were there. He went from 6.66kg to 6.60kg, so thats a loss of 0.06kg in 2 weeks.

    My question is how much is that in grams?

    The vet said it was a 6g loss and made me feel quite rubbish about it. But I am thinking that this is actually 60g, though my maths is rather rubbish!


    Is anyone here good at maths and can tell me which it is?

    yep 60 g - about the weight of a wee - so maybe last time he needed one and this time he didn't. I wouldn't fret about it.

    oh thank you - i knew that vet didnt know what she was talking about! :hand:

    60g is alot better than 6g.

    I was hoping for more but I think a slow diet is better for him anyway

    I think I'd be changing vets! Don't think I'd want this one working out dosages on prescribed meds for my animals.
