Virtually odorless and easy to use, the Virbac Preventic Tick Collar for Dogs is a great way to keep your dog safe.

Directions for Use: Place the PREVENTIC collar around the dog’s neck, buckle and adjust for proper fit. Cut off and dispose of excess length. Do not allow dogs to play with cut-off excess. The collar must be worn tightly enough to contact skin and so that the dog cannot remove it. Activity against ticks starts within 24 hours and continues as long as the collar is worn (up to 90 days). Ticks present in the dog’s environment that may reappear on the dog will not attach and will be killed in less than 24 hours. Replace collar when effectiveness diminishes. The effectiveness of the collar is not diminished by normal wetting such as rainfall, however, it is suggested that the collar be removed before bathing. The active ingredient is not an insecticide. Therefore, use other means for the control of fleas.

    I lived in Lyme Disease country for many years, and have owned siberian huskies much of that time. Without something like this collar, you can't find the ticks until they have attached and blown up. For dogs with thick coats in tick country, this collar is an important line of defense.

    The tick collar works great and fast when first put on. It is supposed to last 3 months and I was told it would be water resistant. My dogs got maybe a month to a month and a half of protection out of one collar. I attributed this to a lot of rain as they are outside dogs

      Comments about Virbac Preventic Tick Collar for Dogs:

      This collar really works to stop ticks on my dog. I live in a high tick area and other products might allow the tick on the dog and wait for it to bite then kill it. Since using this collar I haven't seen a single tick on my dog and it lasts for 3 months. Also I bought it here and it was $10 less then the vet.

            We have tried 5-6 different tick medicines and could not get one to keep the ticks off. Frustrated, we tried the tick collar. Initially we were concerned about some of the reviews but we've had no problems. We've been using now for about 4 months and have not seen any ticks!!

            Comments about Virbac Preventic Tick Collar for Dogs:

            The ticks in our area have just exploded this year where they never were before because of mild winter. Never had to deal with ticks before. My Lab is still a pup (< 2 yrs) and won't hold still for proper manual removal of ticks. The Revolution she gets wasn't touching them, and they kept getting worse. I was at my wits end. Talked to vet, and she was going to try a topical, but we decided on the collar. Best thing I ever did. Within 5 hours, most of the big ticks you could see were gone, and less than 24 hours, ALL the ones you could see were gone. This stuff really works. She's a strictly outside dog by the way.
