I like to make sure that my dog is flea free as best I can, which means a regualr fleaing, with either flea powder or a flea bath.. but when I spotted a flea collar in the shops I thought 'why not?'. So I bought it and gave it a try.
There were a couple of sizes on the shelf, and many other makes too, but I went for the 'standard' size one, which is about 600mm long, (the other said 65cm, (600mm) so I guess that's for bigger dogs).
Anyway, when I got the collar home I wrapped it around the dogs neck, seeing that there was a lot of the collar to cut off, a good 100mm or so. But cutting through the collar was easy with a pair of scissors, just like cutting through hardened rubber really. Once cut to size I then wrapped it around the dogs neck once more, I pushed the end of the collar through the little 'locking catch', this catch is simply a sort of flat, square figure of eight system that the end of the collar slips through.
Once on it looked better, without the excess collar hanging down, , then I put his normal collar on top of this flea one, which hides the flea collar from sight.
Now my dog was ready to be flea free for up to five months, according to the package that the collar came on.
It has now been four weeks and a few days since he has been wearing it and he is showing no signs of having fleas, with no sign of them in his fur when I'm brushing him. I don't know if it's the collar keeping them at bay or the fact that the last de-fleaing treatment is still working. But what ever it is he seems to be flea free.
And the cost of this easy to fit and very discreet flea collar is a staggering low £3.00, which is good money indeed, and even better if it keeps the fleas away for the five months stated.
Collar is designed for dogs and puppies over 12 weeks of age / killS fleas and ticks for up to 5 months.
