A milliGRAM is a measure of Weight. A MilliLITRE is a measure of Volume. With water, 1 Mg is 1Ml.

A standard teaspoon is 5ml.

Testimonial: "OK. Just to make sure my math is right...if 1 tsp = 5 ml, then 1 ml = .2 tsp so .5 ml = .1 tsp. And since .25 = 1/4 tsp, .1 = a little less than 1/8 tsp. Right?"

    go to a chemist and ask to purchase a diabetic syringe with no needle. Tell him you need to administer .47mg of medicine to a dog. The vet should have given you something. It is 1 tenth of a teaspoon (0.94) and is difficult to measure.

    Are you sure that dose is correct, it is very tiny? What is the medicine?

50 mg of musinex is how many ml

That is an impossible conversion. Mg is a unit of weight, while ml is a unit of volume. A Mucinex tablet may contain 400 or 600 mg of medication within the tablet, with the remainder of the tablet being inert filler material. A dose of liquid cough medicine containing guaifenesin (Mucinex) will be dosed using a "mg per ml" dosing guide. That way you know how much of it you are getting.

The ML is what you need. Millimeters measure liquid. Milligrams measure weight. Use your dropper to measure out the 1 ML that you need.

Need to give 3 mg. how many tsp?

A standard teaspoon is 5ml roughly equivalent to 5mg. In a syringe you can use the 3ml mark, although milligrams is a measure of weight, and millilitres is a measure of liquid volume.

I need to know how many in a mg

ml = milliliters is a metric measurement for liquid volume
mg = milligrams is a metric measurement for weight

There is no conversion factor that I know of.

How many mg is 10 ml?

If it's liquid, 10ml is generally assumed to be about 10mg... but that's TOTAL volume. If you're measuring medicine, the CONCENTRATION of that medicine may significantly change that number. If the concentration is 100%, the number will be pretty close. If the concentration is 0.01%, though, that number will only be 1/10,000 as much as you might think if you didn't take conctration in mind.
