Scalibor 3 Month Paralysis Tick Collar for Dogs is an odourless, plastic collar impregnated with Deltamethrin, a member of the synthetic pyrethroid class of insecticides and aracides. The Deltamethrin slowly releases from the collar, and migrates over the body of the dog controlling paralysis ticks for up to 14 weeks.
It exerts best effect for the control of the named ticks 2-3 weeks after application. The collar should therefore be applied 2-3 weeks before the dog is likely to be exposed to infestation.
Use of the Scalibor collar may not prevent tick attachment, as ticks are not killed immediately. In paralysis tick areas, daily searching of the entire body of the dog and removal of any ticks is required with particular attention around the ears.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
DO NOT use on puppies less than 8 weeks of age.
DO NOT use on dogs with skin lesions.
DO NOT use on dogs known to be hypersensitive to pyrethroids.
DO NOT use on cats.
DO NOT use with other ectoparasiticides containing organophosphates.
Buckle the collar comfortably around the neck of the dog, so two or three fingers can be easily inserted between the collar and the dog’s neck. The collar, if buckled too tightly can cause irritation. Remove any excess length (5cm from buckle) and dispose by wrapping in paper and putting in garbage bin. Check the collar’s fit every 2-3 weeks as if it becomes loose the transfer of active ingredient to the dog’s coat may decrease.
The collar should be removed before swimming, bathing or shampooing the dog because the active substance is harmful to fish and other aquatic organisms.
SIZE: Length 65cm. May be trimmed for use in all breeds of dogs.
