EFECTVET ANTIPARASITIC COLLAR for cats (neck collar)
Ingredients: fenthion 0.2-0.4 g.
Application: For external use
Type of formulation: Antiparasitic

Description

Polymeric tape with a blue buckle, with a specific smell of components.

Composition

1 g of collar contains active ingredients:

fenthion – 25 mg;

Excipients: isopropyl alcohol, special solvent, polyvinyl chloride tape. 

Pharmacological properties

Pharmacological properties of the collar are due to the properties of the active ingredient. Fenthion is a thiophosphororganic insecticide; its mechanism of action involves blocking the acetylcholinesterase enzyme in the neural synapses of a parasite, resulting in its death. Fenthion poorly penetrates the blood-brain barrier of warm-blooded animals. 

The active ingredient, which is a component of the collar, is gradually released from the surface of the tape onto the animal's hair, acting as acaricide, insecticide and ovocide.  

The collar is well tolerated by animals, has no local irritative, skin-resorptive and sensitizing effect.

Directions for use

Prevention and treatment of cats in ectoparasitic infestations:  fleas (Ctenocephalides felis), lice (Linognathides spp.), mites (Demodex felis, Otodectes cynotis), biting lice (Ttrichodectes canis).

Dosage

The collar is removed from the package and put on the neck of the animal, being fixed in such a way that there is a space of 1-2 cm between the neck and the collar, then secured with a buckle, and the excess is cut off.
