Product Description

PREVENTIC 2 MONTH TICK COLLAR

 

INDICATIONS

 

Controls ticks including Ixodes holocyclus (paralysis tick) and Ixodes cornatus(indigenous tick), Haemathysalis Iongicornis (bush tick), Boophilus microplus(cattle tick) Rhipicephalus sanguineus (brown dog tick) in dogs for up to 2 months.

PRESENTATION

 

1 collar weighing 27.5g and minimum 65cm in length

COMPOSITION

9% Amitraz

90g/kg

 

DOSAGE & DIRECTIONS

Fit the collar to the dog so that 2 or 3 fingers can be easily inserted between the collar and the dog’s neck. The collar may irritate the dog’s skin if attached too tightly.

Cut off and dispose of any excess length of collar.

It will take up to 48 hours before the dog is protected (it takes 24 hours for the amitraz to migrate over the dog’s body).

Once applied, do not remove Preventic (except while bathing or swimming as water will reduce the efficacy of the collar) since the continual dosage of Amitraz will be interrupted.

Daily tick searches in paralysis tick areas are highly recommended for dogs.

Preventic is recommended for dogs from 16 weeks of age.

Amitraz is toxic if accidentally ingested. Immediate veterinary attention is required.

Reapply a new Preventic collar every 8 weeks.

 

INDICATIONS FOR PUPPIES

Virbac doesn’t recommend the use of tick collars, until the puppy has finished teething. Teething puppies will chew on lots of different things in an attempt to relieve their discomfort, including their ordinary collar.

Waiting for the puppy to mature from the teething stage of their development, before using any medicated collar will greatly reduce the chance of chewing the collar and consequent oral exposure to pesticides.

 

CONTRAINDICATIONS

Do not use on sick or convalescing animals.
Do not allow dogs to chew the collar.
It is recommended to seek veterinary attention if the collar is chewed.

  6. Preventic Tick Collars 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Sep 2014

    I have used this product for many years and have always been very happy with it.
    I live in a tick area and the only time I have had a tick on my small dog is when I failed to put a new one on at the right time. Otherwise no ticks have been found on my dog.
