Directions For Use

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

1. Thread 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. Collar should fit snug enough to prevent placement of the dog’s/puppy’s leg or lower jaw through the collar, yet loose enough to be rotated about the neck. 2. Leave 1-2 extra inches on the length of the collar for adjustment, cut off excess, and dispose of in trash. 3. Check periodically and adjust fit if necessary, especially when puppies are rapidly growing. 4. Replace in 5 months for continuous protection from adult fleas, ticks, and flea eggs. To release the collar, squeeze buckle between thumb and finger and pull sharply. Collar does not need replacement if dog/puppy becomes wet.

To minimize flea infestation, use other Vet-Kem® flea and tick products to: 1. Treat the indoor environment, especially where pets spend time resting. 2. Treat the outdoor environment when necessary.

STORAGE AND DISPOSAL: Storage: Store in original unopened package away from children. Disposal: Dispose of in trash. Collar should be left in place once fitted on dog/puppy. If collar is temporarily removed, wrap in paper or plastic; do not allow children to have access to collar.

What To Expect:


1. This collar is designed to kill adult fleas, ticks, and flea eggs over the entire pet. 2. This collar begins working to kill fleas, ticks, and flea eggs as soon as it is placed around the dog’s/puppy's neck. 3. This collar will provide continuous protection against fleas, ticks, and flea eggs for up to 5 months. 4. Dead ticks will fall off or may be easily removed. 5. Replace collar every 5 months to help control adult flea and tick infestations on your pet and in your home or if the adult flea problem is under control but flea build-up protection is desired.
