Greetings to Those in the Know,

Can someone tell me how long to keep a Preventic collar on a dog? Do you keep it on all the time or just fit it the day before and remove it the day after you are out in a tick infested area? I do not plan to use any other tick protection.
Thanks for any information you can provide.

Paul,

As a veterinary technician, I have never recommended the use of any tick collar. Even though it is said that they last up to 3 month when used correctly, it is not as effective as a topical flea and tick medication.

If you decide to use the collar, I recommend reading and following the directions and warnings on or in the box.

Regards,
Jenna

I've never heard anything good about tick collars either. Plenty of warnings about about though.

Topical prevention is the way to if you need tick prevention though make sure you by the trusted name brands. Online, it boils down to about $10 a month so its not too bad.
