CLINICAL PARTICULARS

Target species

Dogs.

Indications for use, specifying the target species

Control of infestations with ticks (Ixodes ricinus; Rhipicephalus sanguineus) for 5 to 6 months. 
Control of blood sucking by phlebotomine sandflies (Phlebotomus perniciosus) for a period of 5 to 6 months.
Anti-feeding effect on adult mosquitoes of the species Culex pipiens pipiens for 6 months.

Contraindications

Do not use in puppies less than 7 weeks of age.
Do not use on dogs with skin lesions.
Do not use in animals known to be hypersensitive to pyrethroids.
Do not use on cats.

Special warnings for each target species

As the collar exerts its full effect after one week, the collar should be preferably 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 sandflies can therefore not be ruled out entirely. 

Special precautions for use

i) Special precautions for use in animals

In case of skin lesions remove the collar until symptoms have resolved.
The influence of shampooing on the duration of efficacy has not been investigated. 

ii) Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the veterinary medicinal product to animals

Wash hands with soap and cold water after fitting the collar. 
People with known hypersensitivity to the ingredients of the collar should avoid contact with the collar. 

Avoid letting children, in particular those under 2 years old, touch the collar, play with it or put it into their mouth.
Care should be taken not to allow young children to have prolonged intensive contact, e.g. sleeping with a pet wearing a collar.

Keep the sachet with the collar in the outer carton until use.

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.

Adverse reactions (frequency and seriousness)

In rare cases localised skin lesions, localised dermatitis or erythema, pruritus and hair loss can be observed.
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.
 
Use during pregnancy, lactation or lay

Pregnancy:
Can be used during pregnancy.

Lactation:
Can be used during lactation.

Interaction with other medicinal products and other forms of interaction

PHARMACOLOGICAL PROPERTIES

Pharmacotherapeutic group: ectoparasiticides, insecticides and repellents, pyrethrins and pyrethroids 
ATCvet code: QP53AC11.

Pharmacodynamic properties

Insects and acarines are exposed to deltamethrin through contact. The mechanism of action is based on a sustained increase in the sodium permeability of the insect’s nerve membranes. This results in hyperactivity followed by paralysis (shock effect), tremor and death of the parasite.

Pharmacokinetic particulars

Deltamethrin is continuously released from the collar into the coat and the fatty film covering the skin. The active substance spreads from the site of direct contact over the entire skin surface through the lipids and in the hair.
Deltamethrin is not absorbed systemically by the host.
