Can I leave my dog's flea and tick collar on when I take him swimming?
No. It is recommended that flea collars be removed before swimming or bathing as it may decrease the integrity of the product.

How should the collar be worn?
Follow the directions for the product you are using. The collar should fit snugly around the dog's neck - to make skin contact and to ensure that your dog cannot remove it. Generally, this means you should be able to place two fingers under the collar. Adjust for proper fit and buckle in place. Cut off excess length and dispose. Do not allow dogs or children to play with cut-off pieces. Re-check the fit of the collar frequently, especially in growing puppies, to make sure the collar has not become too tight.

How do the collars work?
Flea repellent chemicals are continuously released from the collar and spread over the pet in the natural oils of the haircoat and skin. These flea killers then adhere to the hair and skin and provide continuous protection.

When should I change the collar?
Always change the collar according the the manufacturer's directions, to ensure consistent protection.
