Scalibor Protectorband collars are used for:

  • control of infestations with ticks (Ixodes ricinus; Rhipicephalus sanguineus) for 5 to 6 months.
  • Control of blood sucking by phlebotomine sandflies (Phlebotomus perniciosus) for a period of 5 to 6 months.
  • Anti-feeding effect on adult mosquitoes of the species Culex pipiens pipiens for 6 months.

The 48cm collar is for small and medium sized dogs.

As the collar exerts its full effect after one week, the collar should be preferably applied 1 week before animals are likely to become exposed to infestation.

In rare cases attachment of ticks can occur while wearing the collar.

Under unfavourable conditions the transmission of infectious diseases through ticks or sandflies can therefore not be ruled out entirely.

While occasional contact with water does not reduce the effectiveness of the collar, it should always be removed before swimming and bathing the dog because the active substance is harmful to fish and other aquatic organisms.

Dogs must be prevented from swimming in water for the first five days of wearing the collar.

To fit the collar: Remove the collar from the sealed protective sachet.

Adjust the collar around the animal's neck without tightening it too tight.

Two fingers side-by side should fit between the band and the dog's neck.

Slide the end through the buckle and cut off any excess length extending beyond 5 cm.

In the unlikely event of the dog eating the collar the following symptoms may occur: Uncoordinated movements, tremor, drooling of saliva, vomiting, rigidity of the hindquarters.

These symptoms usually subside within 48 hours.
