The control of blood sucking by phlebotomine sandflies (Phlebotomus perniciosus) for a period of 5 to 6 months.

Available in 2 sizes depending on your dog’s neck size.
Do not use in puppies less than 7 weeks of age.
Do not use on dogs with skin lesions.
Do not use in animals known to be hypersensitive to pyrethroids.
Do not use on cats.
As the collar exerts its full effect after one week, the collar should be preferably applied 1 week before animals are likely to become exposed to infestation.
In rare cases attachment of ticks can occur while wearing the collar. Under unfavourable conditions the transmission of infectious diseases through ticks or sandflies can therefore not be ruled out entirely.
Sizing & Fitting Information:
Available in 48cm (small/medium dogs) and 65cm (large dog) lengths.
For fastening around the neck.
One collar per dog.
For external use only.
Remove the collar from the sealed protective sachet. Adjust the collar around the animal’s neck without tightening it too tight. Two fingers side-by side should fit between the band and the dog’s neck. Slide the end through the buckle and cut off any excess length extending beyond 5 cm.
Swimming & Bathing:
While occasional contact with water does not reduce the effectiveness of the collar, it should always be removed before swimming and bathing the dog because the active substance is harmful to fish and other aquatic organisms. Dogs must be prevented from swimming in water for the first five days of wearing the collar.
