Using the Product

  1. Do not open until ready to use. Dust will form on collar during storage. Do not get dust in mouth or eyes. Take the collar out of the packaging and stretch to full length. The tabs that held the collar in place will fall off when stretching; pull on any remaining tabs to remove them.
  2. Bend the buckle in half between the holes in the buckle, so that you can easily pass the end of the collar through both holes.
  3. Place the collar around your pet’s neck. Feed the collar through both holes facing out. Fit to the neck of the dog. The collar must be worn loosely to allow for growth of your dog and to permit the collar to move about the neck. Generally, a properly fitted collar is one that, when fastened, will snugly slide over pet’s head, and two fingers can be placed between the collar and pet’s neck. Leave 1 or 2 extra inches for collar adjustment, cut off remaining excess collar and dispose of in the trash.
  4. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water after placing collar on pet.
  5. Replace collar every 6 months or sooner if needed.
Question
Should my dog wear PetArmor Flea and Tick Collar for Dogs all the time?
Answer

Yes, the PetArmor Flea and Tick Collar for Dogs must be worn continuously, and a new one should be re-applied every 6 months. Keep in mind that your dog must wear PetArmor Flea and Tick Collar for Dogs for 1 to 2 weeks before being protected—and full protection can take up to 3 weeks.

Question
Can I use PetArmor Flea and Tick Collar for Dogs on my new puppy?
Answer

PetArmor Flea and Tick Collar for Dogs can be used on puppies 12 weeks of age and older. Consult your veterinarian before using PetArmor Flea and Tick Collar for Dogs on debilitated, aged, pregnant, medicated or nursing animals.

Question
Do I need to remove the collar when I bathe my dog or if he is goes out in the rain?
Answer

No. Wetting the collar will not impair its effectiveness, and it is not necessary to remove the collar if your dog is out in the rain. The collar can be worn during a bath, but it would be a good idea to check under the collar while the dog’s coat is drying to ensure that the collar is not causing any irritation.

Question
Will the collar kill fleas from head to tail?
Answer

Yes, the collar will provide protection over the entire dog’s body.

Question
My dog wears a standard collar. If I add this collar as a second collar, will the standard fabric collar rub the active ingredients off this collar? Will it reduce the effectiveness from the friction?
Answer

No, a standard collar should not rub the ingredients off the flea and tick collar. The actives in the collar migrate to the surface at a certain rate. Friction will not affect the rate of release for the active.
