Has very outdated and highly toxic active ingredients
just want to add to my initial review of this product. Although it is effective, I was recently advised by my vet that the chemicals in it are from the 70s and are highly toxic pesticides which are outdated and that there are new and more effective and much less toxic flea and tick preventatives on the market that are available and that wont wear off during swimming. He advised I dont use the Killtix collars anymore. That is all I want to say. Talk to your vet about new and advanced flea and tick treatments and research the active ingredients yourself.
no longer works?
Have been using the kiltix collar for 5 years and 6 months...worked fantastic, but the last 2 collars I have used in the last 5 months!! have been useless. Have they changed the ingredients or something as our dog is always lousy with fleas now, with the occasional tick, which he has never had before??
Questions & Answers
Will this be effective for use on a 10 pound cat? Thank you.
Hi.my dog weighs 25 kg.can i use medium size as it fits perfectly on his neck?
For all purpose, don't laugh, is it possible to use insect spray, like mortain, or surface spray for cockies on the dog to keep the ticks away.
The staff is always on hand, would it work and on which insects?
It is concerning that you would actually even consider that. But good you asked at least before you used anything like that.
Answer- NO Way. you would be spraying toxic fumes near your pet and its highly poisonous if they lick it off their coat. Its also a nerve toxin.
Tick collars have a chemical used in them but its nothing like insect spray and works in a totally different manner.
Using a tick collar can save your pets life because paralysis can occur after just a few hours of having a paralysis tick latched on. I have experienced this with my dog and had to get her on an anti venom drip from the vet. She recovered very well because I caught it in the early stages.
Id rather use a tick collar than risk that.
So NO WAY under any circumstances should anyone use insect spray like mortein on an animal. That would just be insane.
Thank you for that info!
im also have a giant african cockooroach Zumba as a pet.
He's very strong and keeps tearing the collar off.
I've ordered an alloy harness, helps keep him in check.
I wonder if i can boil that collar in vinegar to fully dissolve and made a spray out of it?
It would be great to keep the ticks away from them.
Thank you kindly.
Bayer makes a product called Bayticol which is a tick wash liquid for cattle and farm dogs. It should work fine on your insect pet too if it doesn't kill him as well. But it's expensive, last time I checked. Try farm or rural suppliers.
