Why are there different mixing amounts for the Happy Jack Kennel Dip II, and which one do I use?

Why does the bottle say to use 1/2oz of concentrate per 1 gallon water and then it says to use 1oz concentrate per 1 quart of water? Which mixture am I supposed to use?


The Happy Jack Kennel Dip II Product Label gives multiple use rates based on how you are applying the product, what you are applying the product for, and where you are applying the product. 

Per the Product Label: 
For use on Dogs to Control Fleas, Ticks (Including Deer Ticks, carrier of Lyme disease) Mange Mites, Lice and Stable Flies: Spray, Dip or Sponge on: Mix 1 part concentrate in 256 parts water (1 fl. oz. in 2 gal. or 30 mL in 2 gal. or 8 fl. oz. in 16 gal.) Spray, dip or pour diluted product on the dog until the dog’s hair and skin are thoroughly wet (saturated), making sure that dog’s entire body is treated. Do not treat dog’s face. Let drip dry on dog and do not rinse off.
 Low Volume Spray: Mix 1 part concentrate in 32 parts water (1 fl. oz. or 30 mL in 1 quart). Spray 1-2 fl. oz. per dog. Starting at the tail, stroke against the lay of the hair, spraying the parted hair with a fine mist directly behind the hand to insure penetrating the hair coat. Spray the entire dog until the hair coat is damp. 
For use on Dog Premises to control Fleas and Ticks: Indoor Premise Spray: Mix 1 to 2 parts concentrate in 80 parts water (8 oz. in 2.5 to 5 gal. or 1 pt. in 5 to 10 gal. or 48 mL to 96 mL in 1 gal.) Thoroughly spray infected areas, pet beds, resting quarters, nearby cracks and crevices, along baseboards, moldings, windows, and door frames, and localized area of floor and floor covering. Do not exceed 0.56 lbs ai per 1000 sq ft of treated area. Fresh bedding should be placed in animal quarters following treatment. 
Outdoor Premise Spray: Mix 2 fl. oz. (60 mL) concentrate in 10.5 gal. water or 14 mL in 2.5 gal. water. Use enough finish spray to penetrate foliage, usually 50 – 100 gal. per acre (1 – 2 gal. per 1000 sq. ft.). To prevent infestation of buildings, treat a band of vegetation 6 – 10 feet adjacent to the structure. Conversion Equivalents: 1 fl. oz. = 30 mL = 2 Tablespoons = 6 Teaspoons
