I mistyped "doses".

My question ... if one is travelling with a small child and the kid gets, say, an ear infection -- are meds available in pediatric dosages ???

Thanks.

I see what you mean now...with as many families cruising these days, I would hope that the shipboard infirmaries are equipment and stocked to handle pediatric passengers. That being said, there are ways to handle dosing of pediatric patients when the pediatric dosage forms aren't readily available. So, as the Aussies might say, "No worries, mate!"

Happy cruising!
