Beaphar Flea Collar for Cats contains an insecticide to kill fleas on your cat and prevent their return for up to 4 months. This collar is water resistant, and has been specially designed to stretch if your cat gets caught up, enabling the cat to slip its head out. Suitable for cats over 6 months of age. Complete with silver bell.
This collar has been specially designed to release your cat if it becomes caught up. To fit the collar, simply slide the
free end through the buckle, and tighten to leave enough room to insert two fingers between the collar and neck. Do not
fit too tightly, to ensure against irritation, but do not fit too loosely, or the cat may be able to get a foot or tooth
under the collar, in an attempt to remove it, and become caught up. Remember to periodically check and loosen the collar
if fitted onto a growing cat. Cut off any excess collar with scissors, and throw it away with your domestic rubbish.
If your cat should become caught up, the special design will allow the collar to stretch, enabling your cat to slip its

Wash hands thoroughly with soap
and water after handling the collar. Due to the potential risk of hypersensitivity to Dimpylate developing in humans,
unnecessary handling of this product should be avoided. If you feel unwell after handling the collar, you should seek

Do flea collars stop working if cats go out in the rain?
No, flea collars should still remain effective if pets get wet. The active ingredient is bound within the substance of the
collar and, under normal weather conditions, should not be affected.
Can a cat wear one of these flea collars all of the time?
Beaphar flea collars for cats are designed to be worn all the time, with a few exceptions: Cats under 12 weeks old (soft
collars/6 months old (plastic collars), nursing or pregnant cats, and those treated with other insecticides should
not wear a flea collar. If a spot-on, or other insecticidal treatment, has been used, may be possible to put the
flea collar back on after a period of 7 days, but do check the spot-on label first. If the cat develops any signs
of skin irritation, or signs of drowsiness, listlessness, or respiratory difficulties soon after fitting the collar,
take it off immediately.
How do flea collars work?
Flea collars work by slowly releasing the active ingredient, which has been impregnated into the collar material, over a
long period of time. The active ingredient then slowly spreads around the body surface of the pet in the natural
oils of the skin and coat. Fleas that come into contact with the active ingredient are killed.
How long does it take for flea collars to work?
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. Customers will need to use a good household flea spray, such as Beaphar Defest
or Beaphar Extra Long Lasting Household Flea Spray, to treat carpets and soft furnishings in all rooms that the pet
has access too.
