Product details

The Scalibor Collar offers up to six months’ protection against a whole range of ticks, mosquitos and sand flies to keep your dog free of pesky bugs.

What it’s for 

It's worth thinking about how to protect your dog from insect bites all year round, but particularly in warm weather, when ticks and mosquitos are most active. These nasty creepy crawlies love to bite and burrow into your dog’s skin, causing painful irritation as well as dangerous infections. In serious cases, mosquitos and ticks can carry nasty diseases and worms, which can have serious health consequences. 

The Scalibor Collar is a great way to guard against tick, mosquito, and sand fly infections. Much better to prevent the bugs from biting your dog in the first place than treating them afterwards!

Key benefits

  • keeps ticks and sand flies away
  • has an anti-feeding effect on mosquitoes and fleas
  • works for six months
  • odourless
  • the active ingredient, deltamethrin, is safe for dogs even when pregnant or lactating 
  • safe for puppies over seven weeks old
  • works after as little as one week.

How it works

The Scalibor Collar slowly releases chemicals that force blood-sucking insects to turn their noses up at the prospect of biting your dog. The active ingredient deltamethrin creates what’s known as an anti-feeding effect in mosquitoes and fleas, meaning that even though they’ll see your dog, they won’t want to feed on their blood, keeping your pet safe from infection! 

Deltamethrin is one of the safest forms of insecticide, so you don’t have to worry about your dog's health when they wear it. However, it is toxic to fish and other aquatic life, so you should keep your dog from swimming for the first five days of wearing the collar.

The collar is effective after one week, so make sure you have your pup wearing it for a little while before letting them loose outside.

Warnings

Contra-indications & warnings

  • Do not use in puppies less than 7 weeks of age.
  • Do not use on dogs with skin lesions.
  • Do not use on dogs known to be hypersensitive to pyrethroids. Do not use on cats.
  • As the collar exerts its full effect after one week, the collar should be applied 1 week before animals are likely to become exposed to infestation.
  • In rare cases attachment of ticks can occur while wearing the collar. Under unfavourable conditions the transmission of infectious diseases through ticks or sand flies can therefore not be ruled out entirely.
  • In rare cases localised skin lesions, localised dermatitis or erythema, pruritus and hair loss can be observed. In case of skin lesions remove the collar until symptoms have resolved.
  • In extremely rare cases neurological signs such as tremor and lethargy have been reported. If this occurs, the collar should be removed. These symptoms usually subside within 48 hours. Treatment should be symptomatic, as no specific antidote is known.
  • In the unlikely event of the dog eating the collar the following symptoms may occur: uncoordinated movements, tremor, drooling of saliva, vomiting, rigidity of the hindquarters.
  • These symptoms usually subside within 48 hours.
  • Diazepam can be used for symptomatic treatment if necessary. Do not use with other ectoparasiticides containing organophosphates.
  • While occasional contact with water does not reduce the effectiveness of the collar, it should always be removed before swimming and bathing the dog because the active substance is harmful to fish and other aquatic organisms. Dogs must be prevented from swimming in water for the first five days of wearing the collar.

  • Scalibor collars
    We often take our dogs to southern Europe where sandfly fever is rife. These collars seem to do the job and we feel confident that our dogs are safe. The added bonus is they are also effective against ticks

  • good for Europe/Spain
    have used this product several times on our visits to Spain. Wouldn't go without using it for my dog

  • Very Effective
    Have used these on our dogs while in Spain and are effective against the ticks, don't always stop them getting on the dogs but certainly kill them if I have not combed them off after walks. Don't know about sand flies as we don't get them where we are in Spain.

  • Good for travel in Europe
    Have used Scalibor collar several times for travel in Europe it has appeared to be very effective so far but we are not usually in the areas where sandflies are endemic in their peak season and follow the advice to keep your dog inside upon sundown.
