Bulk Frontline

Recommended Posts


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.

      I have been using my X67c on the ice this year and encountered a small problem. Occasionally, it will have a hard time differentiating between bottom and the surface ice echos. I have tried everything I can think of and can't seem to filter it. If I switch to manual depth range I can see where bottom is but the sonar displays that it is only about 3' deep. Not a serious problem but annoying. Tried varying sensitivity, adjusting interference filter, adjusting surface clutter filter with no success. Any ideas?
    • BobT
      That was an aggressive trip. Did you actually find time for fishing?

      I haven't fished up there for a couple of years but the first time i fished it was about fifteen years ago and we were on moccasin. We did pretty well caught lots of sunfish but size was nothing special. Crappies were decent with a couple large ones. Since then i have gone back maybe three times and caught more large mouth bass than anything.

      Makes sense. I live in northern Minnesota so most of our lakes don't seem to require much stocking other than old mine pits. I'm not familiar with the southern half.

      I picked up new rain gear last year.  I took a layering approach and went with Gill. I love the stuff and can more comfortably wear it in warmer climates.   jacket - bibs - bib& insul bib -
