Description

Tell uninvited to guests to “bug off” with the Hartz UltraGuard Flea & Tick Collar for Cats. A convenient alternative to topical flea applications, this collar starts working fast to kill and repel fleas and ticks. It also prevents flea eggs from hatching, which stops the flea cycle by preventing re-infestation. And as an added bonus, the breakaway design easily comes off in the event your cat gets caught on something, so you never have to worry about him choking or getting trapped. The best part? It works for seven long months, even if it gets wet, so you can go worry-free for more than half a year.

Key Benefits
  • Water-resistant flea and tick collar is an easy alternative to traditional topical flea treatments.
  • Works for an impressive 7 months to effectively kill and repel fleas and ticks.
  • Also prevents flea eggs from hatching to stop the flea life cycle and prevent re-infestation.
  • Breakaway design will come apart if your cat gets caught on something.
  • Adjustable design can be cut to fit your cat’s neck, and it features a clean, fresh scent.
Precautions

HAZARDS TO HUMANS: Harmful if swallowed. Avoid breathing vapors. Avoid contact with eyes. Wash hands with soap and water after using. DO NOT LET CHILDREN PLAY WITH THIS COLLAR. HAZARDS TO DOMESTIC ANIMALS: Avoid contact with eyes. If in eyes, flush with water. Do not use on any meat or milk producing animals. Sensitivities may occur after using ANY pesticide product for pets. If signs of sensitivity occur, bathe your pet with mild soap and rinse with large amounts of water. If signs continue, consult a veterinarian immediately. FIRST AID: Call a poison control center or doctor immediately for treatment advice. IF SWALLOWED: Have person sip a glass of water if able to swallow. Do not induce vomiting unless told to do so by the poison control center or doctor. Do not give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. IF INHALED: Move person to fresh air. If person is not breathing, call 911 an ambulance, then give artificial respiration, preferably by mouth-to-mouth, if possible. IF IN EYES: Hold eye open and rinse slowly and gently with water for 15 - 20 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present, after the first 5 minutes, then continue rinsing eye.

How it works

The collar will begin to kill fleas, ticks and flea eggs and larvae immediately. Its full protection against harder to kill ticks will be built up within a few days after being placed on the pet. For continuous flea and tick protection under normal conditions replace the collar every seven months. Under conditions where pets are exposed to severe flea and tick infestations, it may be necessary to replace the collar more frequently. Wetting will not impair the collar's effectiveness or the pet's protection. If the pet goes swimming or is out in the rain it is not necessary to remove the collar. The collar may be worn with a regular collar.

Instructions

Directions for use

  • Do not use on kittens under 12 weeks old.
  • Do not unroll collar until ready to use.

Remove the collar from the package, unroll and stretch to activate insecticide generator. As the collar begins to work, a fine white powder will appear on the surface.Place the collar around the cat's neck, adjust for proper fit, and buckle in place. The collar must be worn loosely to allow for growth of the cat and to permit the collar to move about the neck. A properly fitted collar is one that, when fastened, will snugly slide over the pet's head. Leave 2 or 3 inches on the collar for extra adjustment cut off and dispose of the extra length. Consult a veterinarian before using this product on debilitated, aged or medicated animals. If used on pregnant or nursing cats, do not replace collar until the kittens are at least 12 weeks old. Sensitivity may occur after using ANY pesticide product for pets. Some animals may become irritated by any collar if it is applied too tightly. If this occurs loosen the collar. If irritation continues, remove the collar from the animal. If signs of sensitivity occur, remove the collar and bathe your pet with mild soap and rinse with large amounts of water. If signs continue, consult a veterinarian immediately. Do not use this product on animals simultaneously or within 30 days before or after treatment with or exposure to cholinesterase inhibiting drugs, pesticides or chemicals. However, flea and tick collars may be immediately replaced.

    Easy to apply

    By on

    I have 3 barn cats who needed a little help to control the itching. These collars are perfect for them! They are super easy to apply. I don't know yet know if they work for a 7 month period as promised, but sure hope they do! They cats don't seem to mind them when put on the way as directed. I did have one cat lose one, but they wriggle their way in and out of tight places all the time in and around the barns. So at least are cheap and easy to replace when necessary. I recommend it as a cheap easy alternative to those expensive applications, especially for full-time outdoor cats.

    my #1 for low priced treatments

    By on

    I've had this on my indoor/outdoor cats for 2 months. They previously had fleas but no longer do. It takes a decent amount of pressure for it to come unsnapped. My cat's collar got caught on a nail on the deck. The collar came apart at that time, but was very easy to snap back together.

    You get what you pay for

    By on

    I've been getting these collars for my cats for years since they're inside cats and they don't need serious flea meds. This collar does not last 7 months. I change mine about every 3 to 4 months since I do have a dog.

    Helps, but not enough

    By on

    Four cats, flea-free until we had to take one to the vet. Should have shampooed and dusted him with diatomaceous earth when we got home. Didn't. Now, we have a big flea problem. The best thing about these collars is that the cats don't try to take them off (that happened a couple years ago with another brand that I can't remember). The cats aren't scratching as much. We bought these collars because it said, "kills flea eggs." Not sure what the life-expectancy is for fleas but we've had the collars on for two weeks. We also add diatomaceous earth to the WBCL (four litterboxes). At this point, I'm not sure what to do. The "bombs" don't work for us. I'll wait another month to see how Four cats, flea-free until we had to take one to the vet. Should have shampooed and dusted him with diatomaceous earth when we got home. Didn't.

In the master bathroom, we have a night-light near the floor next to the toilet. We've placed a white plate with soap/water on the floor under the night-light to catch fleas. It works. I guess I need to "do science" -- dump the dead fleas at the same time every week and count the corpses to see if I'm catching fewer fleas. I assume that, if I'm catching fewer fleas in the bathroom, there are fewer fleas in the house. … more

    Incomplete

    By on

    The collar did not have the hook to tie it or lock it. I tried using from the previous collar and it didnt work. I ended up throwing it away.

    I Can Tell It's Working

    By on

    I've read reviews here that panned these collars, saying they didn't work and there were even fleas under the collars themselves. I have to believe these collars weren't stretched before being placed on the cat, a very important step, as this activates the collar's main chemical. The collar won't work if you just unroll it and put it on your cat. I know my collars (all 9) are working because I can both smell and feel the chemical.

    No way jose

    By on

    I’d give this collar negative stars if I could. This product is far from safe. My cat has itched this collar so much her poor skin is raw, as soon as I saw this the collar was in the garbage. Don’t waste your money, I know it’s cheap, but it doesn’t work and then your cats will end up with fleas all over again, this time with open sores :(

    Flea collar for cats.

    By on

    These flea collars for cats are extremely hard to find at pet stores etc. More products for dogs. They want you to use liquid droplets for cats & dogs now. Being old school I still like the old fashioned flea collar. I ordered several because you just can't find them any more. Plan to place another order soon. The Hartz flea & tick collar for the price works for me and my two cats.
