Product Detail: Preventic Tick Collar

The Preventic plastic collar contains amitraz. It slowly releases the medication to kill ticks, including the paralysis tick (Ixodes holocyclus) for up to two months. The amitraz migrates over the whole body of the dog to eliminate ticks from all parts of the body. Amitraz kills, repels and prevents attachment of ticks.

Warnings, Side Effects and Drug Interactions: Do not use this collar on cats.
Do not use Preventic on sick or convalescing animals.
Do not allow the collar to be chewed by dogs. If any signs of skin irritation are seen, remove collar immediately. If signs of nervous problems are seen in dogs, consult your veterinarian for advice immediately.

Dosage and Administration: Attach the collar so that two or three fingers can be inserted easily between the collar and the dog’s neck. Cut off and dispose of any excess length of the collar. Inspect the dog daily for ticks during the tick season, particularly in and around the ear area. Replace the collar after 8 weeks of use to ensure protection.

Product contains: AMITRAZ 90 g/kg

Storage: Store below 30 deg. C (room temperature). Protect from light.

question regarding collar worn in water
Jun 28, 2014

I live in the woods and use this collar on a regular basis. I now have 2 dogs, one a puppy, and need to reorder. However, my dogs are either in the water or swim every day. Does this affect the effectiveness of the collar or should I attempt to remove it before they enter the water (if I'm quick enough)! I will reorder asap but waiting for your answer. Thank you.

Preventic collar and Demodectic Mange
Dec 12, 2011

I run a busy grooming salon in upstate New York. The ticks were very bad this year so I use and recommend the Peventic collars. I sold a collar to one of my customers and 8 weeks later when she returned for her next grooming appointment she told me that she no longer has to give her dog his daily medication for Demodectic Mange. I was currious about the ingredient Armitraz and when I reserched it I found it is an often used drug to treat Demodectic Mange. Her dog no longer has red skin and his hair has grown in for the first time in 4 years. She thinks I'm a miracle worker!

Great product!

We live in the mountains and one of our three dogs runs through the brush twice daily protecting her territory. She gets ticks the most of the three. These collars have worked when all other products have failed. Great stuff!

Great stuff

I went on vacation last summer and when I returned my outside dogs were covered in ticks. I immediately bought Frontline which had worked in the past, but it did no good. Later, I was told it only prevents ticks, but doesn't kill them. I tried dip. It didn't work either. One of my dogs was old and I was afraid the ticks would kill him. After searching on the internet, I learned about these collars and ordered them. Amazingly, within a week or two the ticks were all gone. There's nothing better and the price is much more reasonable than drops.

Preventic -- the one that works
Mar 21, 2011

This product works. It's that simple. Living in a center of Lyme Disease , controlling ticks is critical to both my dogs' and my health. Unlike other products -- collars, sprays, drops -- Preventic really does the job. Within 24 hours of placing a Preventic collar on the dog ticks are dying and retreating. From then on, for the full two months, there is never another tick. I rate it particularly highly because if prevents ticks from biting and therefore eliminates any chance of Lyme Disease infection. We've been using Preventic for many years and find it to be a consistent winner.
