Where has this been all my life!
on September 7, 2010
In the past I have tried Flea and Tick collars with the same results most people get, they simply never work. I live in Miami FL, which is tick season 365 days a year. Usually the ticks are at a manageable level but this summer was out of control. My laziest dog had up to 30 - 40 ticks at one point. I rushed them to the vet, they used Frontline and I thought my issues would be over. Three days later the ticks came back with a vengeance and were eating my dogs alive. I then used Google looking for a pill like Capster (24 flea killer) but for Ticks. I couldn't find one but Preventic kept popping up. I kept saying that this stuff will not work because the Flea and Tick collars never work. I was so desperate though and saw that there was more positive feed back then negative.
Two days later I received the package. I placed it on my dogs and went to bed. The next morning I decided to check my dogs and was pretty sure nothing will have changed. Well I was wrong, all the ticks were gone. The ones that were still there, you could see were dying. The next day I saw that they had ticks sitting on their fur, but the ticks did not venture to the skin. So far I am on month 2 and non of my dogs have ticks anymore. Even in hidden places like ears and arm pits show not one tick.
I will say this though, I have one dog with sensitive skin and after using this the first day, I noticed a burn like mark in two places of his body. I took the collar off but then saw that the ticks were coming back and since then the collar doesn't bother him. Maybe its the first initial use that got him. Watch your dogs for at least 24-48 hours.
Also as a note, this collar does not work on Fleas, I use a shampoo called Sentry, which has a ingredient in it to break the fleas life cycle, kills the eggs and all and makes adult fleas sterile. Since using that shampoo, my dogs have never had fleas.
