Does the job.....
Preventic collar works. Period. I have 2 golden retrieves and for the past two months when we come out of the "woods" they are dripping tics. And this is a good thing because the tics are running away from the collar, (and of course the FrontLine as well). Make sure you use both or a combination of the collar and something else. Overall rating is good, but the collar does not last 90 days mostly because my dogs are swimming every chance they get so I make sure I change them out every 60 days.

I really like this tick collar. It works for both of my small dogs. I live in the country where ticks can be readily found. Whether it be on my husband and I or on our dogs, ticks are common place. This collar has taken away and keeps the ticks off my dogs. Good product.

Preventic Tick Collar
I have used this collar for about 7 years. I highly recommend it. Since I started using the collar, my dog has not had even one tick. However, lately the little buckle's quality has decreased tremendously. It just goes bad for no apparent reason, so I need to buy a new collar before the 3 months.

We had the worst tick infestation in Vero Beach, FL. The length we went thru to rid the animals - dogs, cats, ferrets, birds was over the top. $400. a month pest control (they have to take all the pics, etc. off the walls) for just the house interior. It's double for the yard. No one else had it as bad on my block and it was completely unaffordable. We bought PREVENTIC from the vet - the ticks were GONE in under a mth. Seriously a miracle and all we wanted for our non-human friends. We sprayed the yard and so long ticks!
