Carefully remove the collar and the tube from the blister. Retain the card for future reference. Fit the collar around your cat’s neck to determine if you need to shorten it. A correct fit is tight enough to fit snugly around the neck (too loose and your cat may try to get it off and get a leg or tooth caught up), but loose enough to enable you to insert two fingers between the collar and the neck.
If the collar is too long, cut the spare piece off with scissors and throw away in the domestic rubbish. Remove the collar from your cat to enable you to now add the contents of the tube to its inner surface. Carefully open the tube and gently squeeze out the contents, applying as evenly as possible along the white side of the central part of the collar. Refit the collar around your cat’s neck.
Fit a new Flea Repellent Collar every four weeks for continued protection.
If your cat gets very wet, it may be necessary to re-apply sooner.
It is safe to re-apply the treatment after seven days.
Warnings: After use, examine your cat’s neck periodically as, occasionally, a sensitive animal may experience localised irritation. Should this happen, remove the collar and bathe the area with a mild, non-insecticidal shampoo. If symptoms persist, or your cat becomes unwell, consult a veterinary surgeon, taking the backing card with you.
- Do flea collars stop working if cats go out in the rain?
- No, flea collars should still remain effective if pets get wet. The active ingredient is bound within the substance of the collar and, under normal weather conditions, should not be affected.
