I've never seen pred concentrations like that. I can only assume
they dissolved 20mg of pred into 6.67ml of Ferretone? Seems like a
very odd amount of Ferretone to use if this is the case. Why not use
10ml to make the math a little easier. :-)

IF this is what they've done, you have roughly a 3mg/ml concentration
of Pred. Giving an extra 0.1cc (0.3mg) one time will not be terribly
bad though I don't know how much that will help in this case. When
Beasley was doing so poorly over a week ago, I gave him an extra
milligram of pred (vet approved!) in the middle of his two, normal

I don't think being an hour late one time with her pred is a problem.
