A 26 g (65 cm) necklace contains: Active substance: Deltamethrin 1.04 g.
Dosage and route of administration: External use only. Skin use. One collar per dog to tie around the neck. Remove the collar from the packaging bag just before use. Adjust the collar around the animal's neck so that it is neither too loose nor too tight: two fingers side by side must be able to pass between the collar and the dog's neck. Cut any excess by more than 5 cm after the loop. Regularly check and adjust the collar simply by pressing on the top of the buckle, then slide the collar into the correct position.
Contraindications: Do not use in puppies under 7 weeks of age. Do not use on dogs with skin lesions. Do not use in case of hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients. Do not use on cats. Deltamethrin is toxic to cats
Specific warnings for each target species: Since the collar reaches its optimal level of effectiveness after one week, the collar should preferably be applied one week before the animal is likely to be exposed to an infestation of parasites.
As a general rule, ticks and sandflies will be killed and fall from the host within 48 and 24 hours respectively after exposure without feeding on blood.
The fixation of an isolated tick or the bite of an isolated phlebotome after treatment cannot be ruled out.
Therefore, the transmission of infectious diseases by ticks or sandflies cannot be completely excluded if conditions are unfavourable.
To treat flea infestations optimally in a multianimal household, all dogs in the household must be treated at the same time.
Pet fleas often infest their baskets, sleeping areas and usual resting areas, such as carpets and upholstery. In the event of massive infestations, and from the beginning of pest control measures, these areas should be vacuumed regularly and treated with an appropriate insecticide.
Special precautions for use in animals: In case of skin lesions, remove the collar until the symptoms disappear. The influence of a shampoo on the duration of effectiveness has not been studied. Occasional contact with water does not reduce the effectiveness of the collar
