I am currently confused on how much Invermectin to put on my guinea pig. I did this and this comes out ((broken link removed))
I also wanted to make sure that I did everything is correct, this is the invermectin I bought ((broken link removed))

Lastly, where can I get a needless syringe that doesn't cost $3 for just one of them? This is what I currently use this ((broken link removed)) It goes up to 1ml. It has 4 lines, let me demonstrate.

- 1ml
-
-.5ml

It really confuses me because the dosage I got before was .10ml
 
I don't know about the dosage but you can get the syringe free at your local pharmacy.
That is where I have always gotten mine. Just ask and they are usually very accommodating. Especially if you go there often.

Good luck
 
You need a different syringe -- your picture is of a dropper, and it's not accurate enough to measure with. Go to a pharmacy and tell them you need a 1 ml. needleless syringe to dose an animal with. They'll probably give it to you, but even if they don't and you have to pay $3 for it, it will last a long time.

I get the same answer you do when calculating the dosage. It rounds off to .07 ml, which is just a bit less than the .10 ml you said you got before.

If you get a 1 ml. syringe, it will be marked off in tenths of a milliliter. You need just a little less than one tenth, so draw it up and apply it to the bald spots behind the pig's ears.
