Directions For Use

It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

REMOVE COLLAR FROM PACKAGE, UNROLL AND STRETCH TO ACTIVATE INSECTICIDE GENERATOR. As the collar begins to work, a fine white powder will appear on the surface.

Do not use on puppies under 6 weeks old. Do not unroll collar until ready to use. Place the Bio Spot Active Care™ collar around the dog’s or puppy’s neck, adjust for proper fit, and buckle in place. The collar must be worn loosely to allow for growth of the dog and to permit the collar to move about the neck. A properly fitted collar is one that, when fastened, will snugly slide over the pet’s head. Leave 2 or 3 inches on the collar for extra adjustment and cut off and dispose of the extra length.

Consult a veterinarian before using this product on debilitated, aged, or medicated animals. If used on pregnant or nursing dogs, do not replace collar until the puppies are at least 6 weeks old.

Sensitivity may occur after using ANY pesticide product for pets. Some animals may become irritated by any collar if it is applied too tightly. If this occurs, loosen the collar. If irritation continues, remove the collar from the animal. If signs of sensitivity occur, remove the collar and bathe your pet with mild soap and rinse with large amounts of water. If signs continue, consult a veterinarian immediately. Do not use this product on animals simultaneously or within 30 days before or after treatment with or exposure to cholinesterase inhibiting drugs, pesticides, or similar chemicals. However, flea and tick collars may be immediately replaced with new collars.

This collar is intended for use only as an insecticide/IGR generator.

The collar will begin to kill fleas, ticks and flea eggs and larvae immediately. Its full protection against harder to kill ticks will be built up within a few days after being placed on the pet. For continuous flea and tick protection under normal conditions replace the collar every 7 months. Under conditions where pets are exposed to severe flea and tick infestations, it may be necessary to replace the collar more frequently.

Wetting will not impair the collar’s effectiveness or the pet’s protection. If the pet goes swimming or is out in the rain it is not necessary to remove the collar. The Bio Spot Active Care™ collar may be worn with a regular collar.
