Description

Help protect your dog with a pain-free solution by guarding her with an Activyl Protector Band. This flea and tick control collar is easy to use and it’s fully adjustable, which means it’s suitable for canine companions of all sizes. The odorless band is designed to kill up to 98% of ticks within 24 hours and provide up to six months of flea protection as it delivers a steady release of ingredients that naturally disperse into your dog’s fur, creating a protective barrier. It’s also completely waterproof to help it stand up to bathing, swimming and unexpected rain showers, making it paw-fectly suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

Key Benefits
  • Easy-to-use flea and tick control collar is completely adjustable for dogs of all sizes.
  • Offers odorless and waterproof outdoor and indoor protection for up to 6 months.
  • Unlike some spot treatments, no dry-time is needed after the collar is applied.
  • Helps create a protective shield from fleas and ticks by releasing the active ingredient into your canine’s fur.
  • Formulated to provide your pup with up to 6 months of flea protection and kill up to approximately 98% of ticks in 24 hours.
Precautions

Do not open protective pouch until ready to use. Do not let children play with this collar. Harmful if swallowed or absorbed through skin. Causes moderate eye irritation. Avoid contact with skin, eyes, or clothing. Wash thoroughly with soap and water after handling. Do not use on puppies under 12 weeks. Consult a veterinarian before using this product on debilitated, aged, pregnant, medicated, or nursing animals. Sensitivities may occur after using ANY pesticide products for pets. If signs of sensitivity occur, remove collar and bathe your pet with mild soap and rinse with large amounts of water. If signs continue, consult a veterinarian immediately. This collar is intended for use only as an insecticide generator and is not to be taken internally by man or animals. Applying other pesticides on the dog may not be necessary while the collar is being worn.

Important Information

Fleas rise to the top of your pet's coat as they die, so consider it a triumph if you start seeing more fleas at first, after treating your pet. If you’re still seeing fleas after application, it may be because your pet has picked up new fleas from the environment, which may include other pets, surfaces and outdoor areas. It may take up to 30 days to break the entire flea life cycle. Additionally, you should also treat sources of new fleas (i.e., carpet, yard, etc.) to ensure complete flea control.

FAQ

Where is this product sourced from?

We source all our products from manufacturer approved distributors or directly from the manufacturers. Chewy takes pride in ensuring that our furry friends’ wellbeing is always our top priority. We have worked hard to partner with all of the manufactures to deliver 100% authentic products

Aren't ticks active just in summer?

No. The tick season extends well into fall—even more so with unusually warmer weather—and some tick species are remarkably hardy in winter, particularly if the temperature is above 45°F (or 7°C).

We have a cat, too. Can I still use Activyl Protector Band for Dogs on my dog?

Activyl Protector Band for Dogs must never be used on cats. One of the active ingredients (permethrin) in Activyl Protector Band for Dogs is toxic to cats, so we recommend keeping dogs and cats separated for 24 hours.

Ticks are only found out in the country, right?

No, they can be found much closer to home. This is because all sorts of mammals (deer, raccoons, rabbits, squirrels, etc.) can carry ticks into suburbs, parks, and gardens, where the ticks fall off and lay their eggs. One tick species, the brown dog tick, can live indoors all year round. Learn more about ticks.

How do ticks get on my dog?

Ticks are smart hunters. Called "questing," they congregate in vegetation and grasses—even in tree boughs—waiting for a warm-blooded host to brush by. They are attracted to warmth and motion, and it is speculated that ticks can even recognize shadows! Although they can't jump, they transfer easily and will crawl long distances to reach a host (your pet sitting in the grass, for example).

How do I know if there's a tick on my dog?

If there's a tick on your dog, it will have burrowed down closer to the skin. After every excursion you need to take the time to carefully look through your pet's coat from head to tail, parting the hair as you go. Be sure to check around your pet's ears, in the "armpits" and between the toes.

What should I do if I find a tick on my dog?

If the tick has not attached, it can easily be brushed off and disposed of. If it has attached, or is engorged, it must be removed carefully so as not to leave the mouthparts in your pet's skin, which could cause infection.

What are the symptoms of Lyme disease?

Your dog will usually have a fever, and rarely, a rash circling the bite area. Different tick-borne diseases have different symptoms: lethargy, temporary paralysis, weakness, etc., so if you see any unusual signs in your dog, contact your veterinarian. Early stages are fully treatable, but if left untreated, can develop into a more serious form of disease months later.

If my dog gets a disease from a tick, is it contagious?

Tick-borne diseases cannot be transmitted from dog to human—however, if you have ticks in your area, both you and your dog may be bitten by them and therefore vulnerable to some of the same diseases. You should be just as diligent checking yourself and your family for ticks!

Can ticks infest your house, like fleas?

Absolutely, yes. One type of tick, the brown dog tick, can infest a home as easily as fleas. But unlike fleas (which lay eggs residing on the dog that then roll off the dog into carpets, sofas and bedding), ticks lay eggs in cracks and crevasses like floors and baseboards.

What can I do if I know there are ticks outside my house?

To begin with, ticks don't like a neat garden! They like moist, damp areas of tall vegetation, so when you keep your grass mowed and plants trimmed, the environment becomes less than ideal for their development. If you find many ticks, you can use pesticides—but make sure they are safe for your pets and environmentally friendly.

    Didn't work for me

    By on

    This collar Seemed ok in beginning, but now 3 months later, our German Shepard is digging like crazy with fleas. Took her to our groomer for a bath, and groomer said she is 'covered' in fleas. Going to call Chewy this morning regarding this product. I love Chewy for everything else, I buy everything here, prices are so wonderful, this collar was only problem I've ever had.

    Good idea collar

    By on

    So far wonderful. Its only been one month but both dogs that have them on are flea free. If they truly work for six months I will be sold. I have use on the dogs and still use them activyl drop onthe cats. With great results . So I thought I'd try the collars so far so good.

    Sorry my dog did not like this

    By on

    I had used Activyl Topical Flea and Tick Treatment for years on my dog. However, can't find that product anymore. Tried the Activyl Protector collar; my dog did not like it. Doesn't have a strong odor, but he seemed unsettled with the scent. Ruled out other possibilities: He wears collars all the time; he doesn't mind have multiple collars around his neck. I wiped the collar per instructions. Nothing worked.... One star per my dog. 5 stars from the owner, based on our prior experiences with Activyl.

    Not worth the money

    By on

    I ordered eight of these and they did not work. My poor babies are covered with fleas. I waited over a month before calling chewy to complain thinking I just needed to give them time to work. Unfortunately that wasn’t the case.

    Doubtful it works

    By on

    I'm very much on the fence with this product and at this time doubt that is going to do the job it claims I placed the collar on my dog and followed the instructions to the T. I am using with other flea control products and have been using the collar for a couple weeks which says you're supposed to see results by then and my dog is still scratching at this point I am disappointed

    Still has Fleas

    By on

    When giving my dogs bathes, they have had fleas even though they have been wearing these protection bands. I am very disappointed in the protection I thought my house dogs received from these collars. My cats also are wearing collars.

    I bought this in the beginning of May. I have 4 dogs, as of July 4th, they began to show signs of fleas. I’ve had to purchase something to replace them. Don’t waste your money.

    Not Working

    By on

    You have to use a damp cloth to activate it (which was weird to me) but I don't know if I didn't wet it enough or too much but it is not working.
