Bulk Frontline

Recommended Posts

Saw557

With tick season just around the corner I remember a post some time ago about buying the largest size of Frontline and splitting the package up an only give the required dose for the weight of your dog. Somebody had a formula figured out for how many cc's or mls per pound of dog. I've looke in the archieves but couldn't find it. Anybody rember what the deal was?

Well I did some digging and found what I was looking for. We had ticks last week before the snow and cold. Just a heads up

Frontline offers 4 sizes…….Up to 22lbs, 23-44lbs,45-88lbs, and 89-132lbs. Each size is pre-measured at .67cc, 1.34cc, 2.68cc, and 4.02cc according to the above weights of your dog. The only way you can save money is buying the largest size for 89-132lb at 4.02cc.

Frontline is dosed at exactly .1675cc per 5.5 lbs of dog weight. So if you buy the pre-measured dose according to your dogs weight of say 60lbs you would be using 2.6cc of Frontline when you really only need 1.8cc. Instead of doing this if you bought the largest size at 4.02cc you could treat a 60lb dog twice. What I do is use a syringe and poke it through the foil back of the container and suck up 2.0 cc and then seal the hole with a small dab of silicone. This way I get two doses per container which works out to almost half price. If you shop around on the net you can find Frontline quite a bit cheaper than your vet. Try it out. I’ve broke it down a little for a 60 lb dog just for example.

60# Dog

6 pkg. 45-88lb dog (2.6cc each) $ 71.00 (on-line) $11.83 (6 doses@ 2.6cc)

6pkg. 89-132lb dog (4.02cc each) $ 72.99 (on-line) $ 6.08 (12doses @ 2.0cc)

For other weight dogs just use .1675cc per 5.5lbs of weight.

40lbs 1.2cc

50lbs 1.5cc

60lbs 1.8cc

70lbs 2.1cc

80lbs 2.4cc

I picked two ticks off my dog last night, she must have picked them up last week when it was warmer out. I will be applying the Frontline once it warms up again.

      has anyone been out to swan lake thinking of going this weekend. never been to this lake but have heard good things.

      Only ice is in McQuade harbor and Knife River, and not much at that.  Cohos are biting really well on some days for guys fishing off the Two Harbors break wall. Pretty miserable conditions in which to fish, though....    South shore has good ice around Washburn, and a few cohos mixed in with good catches of Browns, spoke, and whitefish. Cohos on MN side have averaged 13-14" this winter.

      I have been using a Strikemaster Lithium Lazer 50v electric auger the last couple years. Very happy with it, but I'm limited to about 70-100 feet of ice drilled per charge, depending on temp/hardness of ice. That's more than enough for most bluegill trips, but it's lacking when the ice gets thick and I'm trying to find walleyes on big water during full-day trips. I find myself not drilling as many holes as I would like in an attempt to ration the charge. I just picked up an Eskimo P1 Rocket 8" propane auger. My buddy has the 10" and it's the best auger I've ever used. If anyone wants to really aerate a lake, the Rocket fits the bill. I'll use this along with the Strikemaster electric to meet all of my drilling needs. I haven't used the Rocket yet. It's in the mail. I'm excited at it's light weight in particular. 26 pounds.

      Next time you give it a try. Take a flash light and look up to make sure the throttle flapper is returning to the closed position when you let off the gas and it dies. I have had them stick open or half open then your more or less trying to restart it at half or full throttle which may just be flooding it out. It's either starving for gas or flooding.  Let us know if you solve it.  Good Luck.

      I never fished north of Wahpeton. When I fished down there I'd go south. There's normally some walleye biting early in the year south of the main road through town. I don't know how it would be this time of year. I always fished it first ice because that was usually fishable before most lakes. If you do go out I'd recommend bringing someone along and having a chisel along to check ice. That river ice can be very inconsistent.

      I ordered a rebuild kit from amazon for less than $5.00, so hopefully that will help.  YouTube has some videos on installing it.  It is an odd thing, if it sits for a while it will start and I can run it.  Once I take it off full throttle, it will die and I can't get it to restart.  Thanks for the posts so far, I appreciate it.

      Anyone ever fish this lake? Buddy of mine wants to try it?

      For cleaning carbs I use Gumout spray with the tube on it to shoot through all the passage ways. If I'm finding one not flowing well or clogged I like to use a gas welding tip cleaner. There are a lot of sizes and you don't have to jam something to big through it which could widen and ruin the flow. I got a nice pretty new little chain saw from a guy who just could not get it running for Free. Found that no spray would go through the main jet when I was cleaning the carb. Used the tip cleaner to knock out a piece of saw dust, and clear our Deer trails out really nice this year! Like Wanderer and Borch said, rebuild kits are cheap and a good thing to do if it's been gummed up.  p.s those little piss-ant needle flow valve springs are really fun to get back in place with fat fingers! They like to jump off the work bench and hide!!

      Sounds fun Jeff!, The way the ice has set up this year maybe it will happen after all. I would like to start getting a few prizes together for Biggest Cat, and also a kids division. Hopefully someone can bring a few good ones to the scales...
