How Preventic Tick Collars Work
Preventic is unique because it not only prevents ticks from attaching and feeding on your pet but it also controls and kills paralysis ticks.
Preventic contains a chemical called amitraz that specialises in tick control. Amitraz acts by paralysing the mouth parts of the tick, killing and detaching the tick, reducing the risk of tick paralysis.
Amitraz migrates across the lipid or oily layer of the skin and hair coat, reaching maximim efficacy within 24 hours.
Slow release technology within the Preventic collar consistently releases amitraz over the 2 month period, ensuring the level on the coat - once it has spread - is consistently above the concentration required to kill ticks.
The Preventic collar controls ticks and provides protection for up to 2 months. Buckle collar comfortably around the dog's neck. Any collar when buckled too tightly may cause skin irritation. Attach collar so that two or three fingers can be inserted easily between collar and dog's neck. Cut off any excess length of the collar and dispose of it. In tick paralysis areas, daily searching of the entire body and removal of ticks is recommended. Pay particular attention to the area in and around the ears. The dog should be inspected daily for ticks particularly in and around the ear area. Replace collar after 2 months to ensure continued protection for your dog. Remove collar before washing or swimming, once replaced protection may take 24 hours to re-establish.
