Beaphar Cat Flea collars continuously and slowly release an insecticide which kills fleas upon contact, and will continue to kill fleas and prevent reinfestations for up to 4 months.
This comfortable fabric collar has been fitted with an elastic safety link. The safety link is designed to stretch if your cat gets caught while out and about, enabling your cat to slip their head out. The collar can also be adjusted to fit any cat.
Cats that go outside will continue to be protected by the collar even if it rains as the active ingredient is bound within the substance of the collar and is unaffected by normal weather conditions.
The flea collar will become effective from the moment it is fitted to the pet. It will begin to kill fleas immediately, however it may take several days for the active ingredient to spread throughout the whole coat. Once fitted, the collars are designed to prevent fleas for up to 4 months. The perception of how well the collar is working will depend upon the level of flea infestation in the household. Fleas spend most of their life-cycle not on the pet, but in the home environment. If this source of reinfestation is not effectively treated, newly-hatched fleas will still bite family members and will reinfect the animal. In case of an infestation, you will need to use a good household flea spray or room foggers to treat carpets and soft furnishings in all rooms that the pet has access too.
Applied to a cat in high concentrations, such as a spot on, permetherin is extremely toxic. However, when used in a slow-release format (such as a collar), the concentration of permetherin in contact with the cat at any given moment is very low; below the so called "no effect levelĒ. As such, permetherin flea collars are safe to use on cats.

Do not remove the collar from the pack until you are ready to use the product. Fasten the collar around your catís neck (coloured side facing outwards) leaving enough room to insert two fingers between the collar and neck. Do not fit too tightly to prevent irritation, but do not fit too loosely or your cat may be able to get a foot or tooth under the collar and become caught up attempting to remove it. Cut off any collar sticking out beyond the buckle. Wrap this cut-off in a bag and throw it in your dustbin. Keep the empty blister card for reference until the collar is thrown away. Remember to periodically check and loosen the collar if fitted to a growing cat.
Do not use on cats under 6 months of age. Do not use on sick or convalescent animals. Do not use on pregnant or lactating queens. Never allow any animal to chew the collar. If skin irritation does occur, remove the collar immediately and seek veterinary advice. If you feel unwell after handling the collar, you should seek medical advice. Do not use if you are under medical advice to avoid organophosphates or anticholinesterases. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water after handling the treated collar. Do not smoke, eat or drink while handling the collar. Do not allow children to play with the collar or to chew or suck on it. A pet wearing a flea collar should not sleep in bed with people, particularly children. Extremely dangerous to aquatic life. Do not contaminate ponds, waterways or ditches with product or empty packaging. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. For animal treatment only.
