Directions For Use

Do NOT remove the collar from its package until ready to use. Remove the collar from the package, unroll and STRETCH to activate. This releases the active ingredient at time of use and assures full activity. Place the flea collar around the cat’s neck, allowing a spacing of 2 fingers between collar and neck and buckle in place. Leave 5 to 8 cm on the collar for extra adjustment. Cut off any excess length, wrap and dispose of it in the garbage. Wash hands with soap and water after handling collar.

When collar is first worn, observe the pet’s neck area every few days for irritation or adverse reaction. Do NOT use on cats under 12 weeks of age. Consult a veterinarian before using on sick, aged, pregnant, or nursing animals or animals receiving drug or other pesticide treatment. Remove collar when bathing pet with soap or detergent. For continuous protection in situations where there is an ongoing risk of pest infestation, replace the collar every five months for fleas, every four months for ticks. Under conditions where cats are exposed to severe flea or tick infestations it may be necessary to replace the collar more frequently. Replace this collar no more than once every 4 months.


For effective flea and tick control, treatment of the pet should be combined with sanitation of any area used by the pet. Vacuum floors, carpets and furniture (discard vacuum bag after use) and wash the pet’s bedding, living quarters and surrounding areas. If pest problems persist, an insecticidal premise treatment may be required. A veterinarian should be consulted when pest infestation continues to be a problem on the pet.
