The Scalibor collar for dogs is an external antiparasitic that contains deltamethrin, a potent insecticide, and acaricide with repellent properties (antifeeding). It protects your dog against sandflies - the leishmaniasis transmitting agents - for 12 months and also against ticks and adult mosquitoes for six months. Additionally, the Scalibor dog collar also protects your dog against fleas and prevents new infestations for four months.
Unlike conventional collars, the Scalibor tick collar allows the gradual release of the active substance, deltamethrin, directly and exclusively to your dog’s skin and fur. There’s no release through evaporation or loss of active substance and, consequently, it has no odor.
In recent years, due to changes in climatic conditions, the season for leishmaniasis transmission has increased. MSD Animal Health has conducted further studies on the effectiveness of Scalibor collars under these new weather conditions and has observed a repellent efficacy against the sandfly between 94% and 98% for 12 months. Additionally, another study conducted with the collar Scalibor showed a repellent effect greater than 98% against the adult Culex pipiens mosquito, preventing it from feeding on the treated dogs’ blood.
For optimal protection, considering the diffusion time of the active substance, apply the Scalibor collar one week before you introduce your dog into an infested environment or prior to the leishmaniasis season.
With just one collar, Scalibor not only protects your dog from the phlebotome responsible for the disease Leishmaniasis all year round but also from ticks, fleas, and mosquitoes. Buy Scalibor collar online at Vivapets and help your dog live parasite-free!
