Dog Flea and Tick Collars Buyer’s Guide


Share this  

Even though there are many great topical flea and tick products for dogs available, there are still many reasons why some owners choose to use flea and tick collars to protect their pets. Some common reasons can include: the topical product does not kill all parasites found in your area, your dog has an allergic reaction to the spot on products, or you want a product that lasts longer than four weeks.

Many collars provide constant protection against fleas, ticks, lice, and other pests. Not only do collars stop fleas and ticks from making your pet itchy, they can also repel these insects that can transmit diseases like Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and others.

The table below will allow you to compare some major brands of flea and tick collars. Remember to follow all directions on the product label and any instructions from your veterinarian.
