1 collar weighing 27.5g and 72cm in length

9% Amitraz 90g/kg

Fit the collar to the dog so that 2 or 3 fingers can be easily inserted between the collar and the dog’s neck. The collar may irritate the dog’s skin if attached too tightly.

  • Cut off and dispose of any excess length of collar.
  • It will take up to 48 hours before the dog is protected (it takes 24-48 hours for the amitraz to migrate over the dog’s body).
  • Once applied, do not remove Preventic (except while bathing or swimming as water will reduce the efficacy of the collar) since the continual dosage of Amitraz will be interrupted.
  • Daily tick searches in paralysis tick areas are highly recommended for dogs.
  • Preventic is recommended for dogs from 16 weeks of age.
  • Amitraz is toxic if accidentally ingested. Immediate veterinary attention is required.
  • Reapply a new Preventic collar every 8 weeks.

IndicationControl of ticks, including paralysis tick, in dogs for up to two months.
ContraindicationsAdministration to sick or convalescing animals, or to lactating bitches; administration to puppies under 3 months of age; administration to cats.
ActionsThin strap of PVC matrix which slowly liberates enough amitraz to kill ticks for up to two months. Amitraz migrates over the whole body of the dog enabling the elimination of ticks. The active ingredient is insoluble in water and has a very high affinity for the oily layer of skin and hair. Amitraz is a neurotoxin which affects the central nervous system of the tick. Neurotoxicity causes hyperexcitation which kills and prevents attachment of ticks. Amitraz is thought to paralyze the tick's mouthparts and inhibit feeding. Preventic has a pleasant mint fragrance.
