Mathematical Manipulations for drug dosage

Hello, I am very much confused about some calculations and would appreciate if anyone out there can bail me out.

How can one calculate the Molar concentration of a drug if one is asked to inject an animal with 5mg/Kg body weight ( assuming the drug is Aluminum sulphate).

If the animal weighs 60g and one is to inject it with 5mg/Kg bodyweight of Aluminum sulphate, what is the molar concentration of the amount of Aluminum sulphate to be injected.

I would very much appreciate your response. Thanks in advance.
