Reg leg was cured in the frog, Rana pipens, with chloromycetin, using a dosage of 5 mg initially and 3 mg twice daily, or sulphadiazine with 15 mg initially and 10 mg twice daily. The drugs are best administered in suspension by gastric intubation, using a calibrated rubber bulb pipette and suspensions of a 250 mg capsule of chloromycetin in 22 cc water yielding 3 mg per x/i cc of suspension. Other species of frogs or toads may be treated with the above methods with dosages proportional to body weights.
