DIRECTIONS FOR USE: Use only as directed.
One collar of 38 cm per cat weighing up to 8 kg to be fastened around the neck.
Ticks already on the cat prior to treatment may not be killed immediately after collar application and may remain attached and visible. Therefore removal of ticks already on the cat at the time of application is recommended.
Remove collar from protective bag directly before use.
Unroll collar and make sure that there are no remnants from the plastic connectors inside the collar.
Adjust the collar around the animal’s neck without tightening it too tight (as a guide, it should be possible to insert 2 ﬁngers between the collar and the neck).
Pull excess collar through the loop and cut off any excess length extending beyond 2 cm.
After application of the collar, three reﬂ ector clips may be ﬁ xed permanently to the collar to increase the animal’s visibility in the dark.
Remove the clips from the bag. The clips should be evenly distributed on the non-overlapping part of the collar. The clips are correctly applied when a clicking sound is heard.
For safety reasons once the reﬂectors are ﬁxed to the collar the clasp closes permanently and cannot be re-opened.
The reﬂector clips contained herein are only meant to be used in combination with the speciﬁc collar and have been tested only for such use and purpose.
The collar should be worn continuously for the 8 month protection period.
Check periodically and adjust ﬁt if necessary, especially when kittens are growing rapidly.
This collar is designed with a safety-closure mechanism. In the unlikely event of a cat being trapped, the cat’s own strength is sufficient to widen the collar to allow for quick release.
Tin containing one 38 cm (12.5 g) collar packed into a plastic bag and one additional plastic bag with three reﬂectors.
