Preventic for Dogs

Dog Tick Control and Mange Treatment

Preventic tick collars for dogs kill and detach ticks before they can transmit disease-causing microorganisms. Preventic pet meds are also recommended as part of a demodex (demodectic mange) treatment.

Preventic Tick Collars provide dogs with continuous protection against ticks and the diseases they transmit. They are well tolerated and usually go unnoticed by dogs while providing around-the-clock protection for as long as 3 months.

Benefits of Preventic:

  • Available in two sizes to fit most dogs: 18 inches and 25 inches
  • Prevents Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses
  • Benefits begin within 24 hours of application
  • Continuous coverage for 90 days, provided the collar remains securely around your dog's neck
  • Not associated with side effects
  • Reduces skin irritation and other symptoms associated with tick infestations

Use this medication only as directed by your veterinarian.

Read product labeling carefully before each use. Remove the collar before bathing.

Do not allow children to play with or handle the collar.

Directions:

  1. Place the tick collar around your dog's neck and adjust it to fit. Buckle.
  2. Slip your fingers between the collar and your dog's skin. The collar should be tight enough to prevent removal and remain in contact with the skin, but not so tight as to impair breathing or circulation.
  3. Cut off any excess length with a pair of scissors.
  4. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water.

Frequency of Use:

Leave around your dog's neck for 90 days, unless instructed otherwise by your veterinarian.

Storage:

Store Preventic Tick Collars out of reach of children and animals. Wrap empty collar, pouch, and/or box in newspaper and place for trash pickup.

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

Warnings:

Keep this product out of reach of children and animals. Do not use or store in or near open flame or heat.

Do not use on cats or on other animals. Do not use on humans. Do not allow dogs to play with or chew on discarded collars.

CAUTION: Not for ingestion. Harmful if absorbed through the skin during application. May cause moderate eye irritation. Avoid contact with skin, eyes, and mucus membranes.

Use on aged, medicated, pregnant, nursing, or debilitated animals only if told to do so by your veterinarian.

Do not use in conjunction with monoamine oxidase inhibitors, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, tricyclic antidepressants, or pressor agents.

Remove collar if irritation develops and bathe your dog with plenty of water and a non-pesticidal shampoo.

If your dog's collar goes missing, attempt to find the entire collar. If depression occurs in your dog, consult your veterinarian immediately. This may be a sign of intoxication. Veterinary treatment involves inducing vomiting and administering a non-oily laxative, an enema, and activated charcoal. Yohimbine administered intravenously at 0.1 mg/kg is antidotal if the depressed dog cannot be roused. Do not attempt this treatment at home.

Do not use this medication in animals with a known allergy to it or to similar medications.
