Customer Reviews
Preventic Amitraz Tick Collar for Dogs is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 250.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too much to combine for my little dog Tried to use Preventic in addition to a generic Frontline liquid and it proved to be too much for my little dog (aprox 18#). He was extremely subdued and had some GI upset. It was working great, but will have to try it again after the liquid wears off. It could also be the odor as he was trained by his previous owner with a citronella "bark collar". Anyways, not a good fit for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have been using preventic tick collar for eight years now on my chocolate havenese and have never found a tick on her. Best tick collar ever!!!
Date published: 2017-03-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from it works 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Q&A

Are your tick collars brake-away if they get caught on something?

Asked by: Evelyn
Thank you for your question. The Preventic Tick Collar does not have safety release mechanism that prevents strangulation if the collar becomes caught or tangled. However the Seresto flea and tick collar does.

Can it be used with Bravecto?

Asked by: dabears
Bravecto works to prevent ticks; therefore, the addition of the Preventic Tick Collar is unneccassry and may lead to extra side effects for your pet. I would stick with Bravecto since it protects against both fleas and ticks.
