The Spectra SHIELD Collar Attached Medallion offers 4 months of flea and tick control for dogs 6 months and older. Simply attach the medallion to your dog's collar D-ring for easy, convenient flea and tick control. The Spectra SHIELD Collar Attached Medallion combines the active ingredients Zetacypermethrin and Piperonyl Butoxide to kill adult fleas and all blood-feeding stages of ticks.

Hung on your dog's collar, the medallion slowly and continually releases very small amounts of its active ingredients, which then transfer from the medallion to your dog's hair. Spectra SHIELD's active ingredients mix with the natural oils on your dog's skin and hair, eventually migrating all over his body. This sustained-release delivery system ensures the consistent replenishment of active ingredients to your dog's entire body. The Spectra SHIELD Flea & Tick Collar Attached Medallion may be worn during swimming or bathing.

The Spectra SHIELD Flea & Tick Collar Attached Medallion offers a convenient alternative to flea and tick topicals. If you tend to forget to apply monthly flea and tick treatments, or dislike other types of treatments, you'll appreciate the ease, speed, and convenience Spectra SHIELD affords.

Consult a veterinarian before using this product on debilitated, aged, or medicated animals. If used on pregnant or nursing dogs, do not replace medallion until puppies are at least 6 weeks old. Sensitivity may occur after using any pesticide product for pets. Any pesticidal collar or collar attachment may irritate some animals. If irritation continues, remove the product from the animal. If signs of sensitivity occur, bathe your pet with mild soap and rinse with large amounts of water. If signs continue, consult a veterinarian immediately. As the Spectra SHIELD Medallion is depleted of insecticide, you may notice ticks and fleas on your pet, indicating it is time to replace the attachment. Or, replace the attachment after 4 months - whichever comes first.

Precautionary statements for humans: May be harmful if swallowed or absorbed through the skin. Avoid contact with skin, eyes, or clothing. Wash thoroughly with soap and water after handling and before eating, drinking, chewing gum, using tobacco, or using the toilet.

Environmental hazards: This pesticide is extremely toxic to fish and aquatic organisms, including fish and invertebrates. Do not contaminate water by disposal of used collar medallion. Use this product only as specified on the label.

Ratings & Reviews
Frequently Asked Questions
Can my dog play in our nearby lake or ocean while wearing the medallion?
Yes. The medallion should not be placed permanently in aquatic environments either through accidental spills or disposal. There is no harm if the dog plays in the water as the amount of active released from the tag is insignificant as no components of the medallion are water soluble.

Can the 4 gram medallion be used on a dog less than 14 lbs?
A. No. The 4g medallion is not recommended for dogs under 14lbs. During development it was determined that the size of the 4g medallion was too large for dogs of this size, therefore no testing was performed and safety on dogs under 14lbs is unknown.

Can the 8 gram medallion be used on a dog more than 56 lbs?
Yes. Due to the physics of the medallion, the 8 gram tag will work fine on very large dogs 150-200 lbs or more.

I have a dog and cat in my home and they often play together. Will the medallion cause any harm to my cat?
No. The medallion only works on the dog because the dog wears the medallion 24 hours a day/7 days a week. There is little to no residue to be picked up from incidental contact by humans or non target animals such as cats living in the home with a treated dog.

What if my dog swallows the medallion?
There is no toxicity issue because the medallion is passed before any significant amount of insecticide can be released from the tag. However we recommend that confirmation is made that the medallion has passed in the dog’s stool.
