REG. NO. 28598 P.C.P. ACT
AVAILABLE THROUGH VETERINARIANS
For use in the control of cat fleas, dog fleas, American dog ticks and brown dog ticks on cats. This product will begin to kill fleas and ticks within hours. Control of ticks will take a few days to occur after placing the collar on the pet. The collar will continue to control fleas for 8 months by killing adult fleas and flea eggs on your pet. This product may be worn with a regular collar.
Directions For Use
Do NOT remove the collar from its package until ready to use. Place the collar around the cat’s neck, adjust for proper fit and buckle in place by threading flat end of the collar through buckle hole and tighten as necessary, so that at least two ridges are covered by the buckle. Since the plastic buckle is molded into the collar, the possibility of neck irritation and buckle failure is reduced. The collar must be worn loosely to allow for growth of the animal and to permit the collar to move around the neck. A properly fitted collar is one that, when fastened, will snugly slide over the cat’s head. Leave 5 to 9 cm on the collar for extra adjustment. Cut off and dispose of extra length in empty pouch and discard in garbage. To release the collar, squeeze buckle between thumb and finger and pull sharply. Do NOT use on sick or nursing animals, or on cats under 12 weeks of age or animals receiving drug or other pesticide treatment. Consult a veterinarian before using on aged or pregnant animals. Replace this collar no more than once every 8 months. Replace collar every 8 months for continual pest control in situations where there is an ongoing risk of pest infestation. RETAIN PACKAGING INFORMATION FOR FUTURE REFERENCE. Treatment must only be repeated if pest problem reoccurs. 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 treatment of the premises may be required (e.g. Vet-Kem Siphotrol® Sprays). A veterinarian should be consulted when pest infestation continues to be a problem on the pet.
