No, the fish mox is sold in capsule form in 250 mg per cap or 500 mg. You can 
dilute with water or the recipe Gary has. There is also the sorbitol syrup. If 
you mix with water than you have to make sure that you shake it very well and 
even pull back on your syringe a little and shake it in the syringe immediately 
before you administer it or the powder will be left behind in your syringe. Not 
all of it but a little. It is 50 mg every 12 hrs for cats. 25mg for teeny
