Amitraz spreads over your dog in the oil of its skin and haircoat where its activity starts within 24 hours to detach and kill existing ticks on your pet. Amitraz continues to prevent attachment and feeding and kills new ticks that may climb onto your pet for up to 90 days.

This collar should be replaced when new ticks are seen to persist on your pet. For optimal efficacy for tick control and prevention you should replace the collar every 3 months.

18" collar: for dogs up to 60 lbs.

Note: Before using in conjunction with any topical flea treatments including Bio Spot, or any prescription medications, please consult your veterinarian.
Directions: Place the collar around the dog's neck, adjust for proper fit and buckle in place. Cut off excess length and dispose. Do not allow dogs to play with cut-off pieces. The collar must be worn tightly to contact skin and so your dog cannot remove it.

|Q.||Can I use the Preventic Collar with topical flea and tick products such as Bio Spot?|
Maybe. In some cases, you can use Bio Spot® Defense Spot On® along with the Preventic Collar. This is sometimes done especially in areas heavily infested with ticks. However, this may not be appropriate for all dogs, particularly those that are aged, pregnant, nursing or dogs with medical conditions. We recommend you always consult with your local veterinarian before combining flea and tick products. Please see our chart on Combining Flea and Tick Products.
