Preventic Amitraz Tick Collar for Dogs
Preventic Amitraz Tick Collar for Dogs 234 234
didn't work Our dog is on Revolution, which protects against everything but ticks, so we needed something for ticks. I got the Preventic collar. Our dog has had it on since the beginning of April (supposed to be effective for 3 months), and here it is mid-May, and we have found 5 ticks total (3 were engorged) on him. Ironically, they were all found close to the collar (one behind his ear, one above his eye, and one on his neck). None were on his abdomen or hind quarters. One of the ones that was found, but was not embedded yet looked like it could have been a deer tick. 05/12/2011
Highly Recomended I have been using this collar on my dogs for 10 years now. I recomend this highly! 03/19/2011
Really Worked for Us We were having a terrible problem with ticks. We had tried fogging and spraying the yard. Different shampoo's. Over and over again. I have three dogs, small, medium and large so it can get pretty expensive. I ordered these collars as a last resort and within 48 hrs we were not having the problem anymore. I will be ordering them again and again to keep it under control and it is affordable. 03/17/2011
Works great ! 2 to 3 months This is the second time we have used this collar and here in the Ozarks the ticks are plentiful , and viscous , this collar works great for our Rottweiler as she roams our wilderness 82 acres , drops are a waste of money and mess. This collar is for TICKS only ! We do not have a flea issue so if a good tick control is what you want this collar should fit the bill ! Try it but give it a chance to work , you will still see ticks on your dog but they do not attach , or die if they do , and fall off before they barely get hooked on . 01/07/2015
Good & Bad This collar is great but you must be very careful and check your dogs frequently. I have used the collars now for over 3 years without any problems until this past summer. My aging Australian Shepherd, who has used it in the past without difficulty, stopped eating and was lethargic and just seemed sick. I never related it to the collar as she has had one on numerous times without any problems. When I finally checked her collar, she was raw with open sores around her neck. She lost all hair around her neck and had to be on anti-biotic and creams to clear up. I felt so bad! My other 3 Border Collies did just fine with the collars. So I say to use with caution and check your dogs frequently. The Aussie will not be getting the collar again but it works too well on the others to not use. I will just check them weekly to ensure that it is not harming them!! 12/24/2014

Answer:Thank you for your question. No, this cannot be made into three smaller collars.
I continue to find ticks attached to my dog - ear, chest, genital area. I don't know if they are different kinds of ticks or just at different life stages as they have ranged from tiny & tannish in color to partially engorged & dark brown/black.
I reapplied the drops & am considering applying more frequently during tick season - which was suggested by manufacturer's help line. I would like a longer lasting solution rather than a shorter one, however your "how to use" video says not to use the collar with K9AdvantixII.
Answer:My vet told me to wait the 30 days after I had applied a topical flea and tick medicine (Frontline Plus) before using the Preventic collar. He said it would be too much on the dog's system.
Answer:Thank you for your question. It is suggested to wait at least 3 weeks before using the Preventic collar after the application of K9 Advantix II.
Answer:My dogs wear the collar starting in April and I put a new one on them in July. That gives us enough coverage from ticks until the hard freeze. We are usually good without the collar Nov. thru March.
Answer:Thank you for your question. Depending on the climate throughout the winter, you can remove the collar if you do not see ticks.
Answer:I would not think so! There is a very strong smell to the collar. Not terrible but you can definitely smell a difference in your pets fur. I assume the smell/chemical is necessary to repel the ticks.
Although the smell is noticeable, it is not overwhelming. The smell far out-weighs your dog getting ticks! I still don't think you would want to be ingesting the chemical smell from the collar.
Answer:Thank you for your question. No, this would not be safe as the collar releases medication onto your furry pal's skin.
