Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kills ALL ticks I had been using other products to manage ticks, but my dogs still got ticks in the summer. My vet told me that the products I was using only kill deer ticks and said that the Preventic collar was the only thing he knew of at the time that kills ALL kinds of ticks. The only problem I have noticed is that the tick will get on my dog and ride it into the house, then realize that my dog is poisonous and drop off on my couch or bed to look for an untainted food source... which is ME. I just check my dogs when they come inside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Preventive Tick Collar This collar works for my dogs. Keeps them tick free. Easy to buckle on and stays in place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flawless performance We live in Florida and backup to a protected wetland. Ticks are ever present. Our dogs are often on the boarder of the wetlands. We have been using this collar for seven years. In that time we have found one tick on our dog, and it was dead. This is a required product for us. We purchase a year’s worth at a time to make sure that we never run out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Preventic I have used these for years. I will say the cost has triple in the last 5 years. Why is that? Seems like the more you tell people about something and they buy it they rise the price? I haven’t been able to get them for a while does anyone know why?

Questions

How does this collar work? Is the active ingredient absorbed by the dogs skin? Do ticks need to come  near or in contact with the collar for it to be effective?  I’m wondering how this provides full body protection.

Asked by: Schwartz
The ingredient amitraz is an antiparasitic drug. It rapidly paralyzes the ticks mouth parts before killing the tick, preventing attachment of the tick and preventing the transmission of disease. On animals, it is used to control ticks, mites, lice, and other animal pests. It works to kill Deer Ticks, the Brown Dog Tick, the Lone Star Tick and the American Dog Tick. Apply an 18" collar tightly enough that the collar is in contact with the dog's skin. The collar must come in contact with your pets skin to work.
