How it works:
The ingredient amitraz is an antiparasitic drug. It rapidly paralyzes the ticks mouth parts before killing the tick, preventing attachment of the tick and preventing the transmission of disease.
On animals, it is used to control ticks, mites, lice, and other animal pests.
It works to kill Deer Ticks, the Brown Dog Tick, the Lone Star Tick, and the American Dog Tick.
Instructions For Use:
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.
Reapply a new Preventic collar every 8 weeks.
