Rated 5 out of 5 by BlueRidge These collars do the trick
I have been using these Preventic collars on my dog for 13 years. I have never found a tick, living or dead, on her. They do the trick. They can be a little pricey, but worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bubblez The only product that worked for me
I never knew what a tick was until I moved to Florida. My groomer told me she found 30 on my boy. Mind you he was on Revolution (mainly for heartworm), and after a call to Pfizer who makes Revolution I was told it only helps with one kind of tick and the tick needs to bit him in order to die! Give me a break. Then I tried Advantix as well. Don't waste your money it didn't work, and it doesn't work on fleas either. My vet told me to try this collar, and shortly after my boy was tick free. He hasn''t had one tick since I started using this. He did get fleas, but this collar specifically states it does not work on fleas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by aaa128 best tick collar
Where we live is surrounded by prairie and wetlands. The ticks are bad from march till dec. This coller works great. Even our vet who is doing tick research here in wisconsin agrees with me fully.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Patty13 It's what it promised
The preventix collar lived up to what it said. I have a high tick area in my neighborhood. I have two dogs and was noticing ticks on them and in my house. YUCK!! So I got the collars and it took a couple days to start working(which is what it says in the descriptions). I have found a tick here or there but not at all like before. I've checked the dogs and maybe once in awhile I'll have one or two but my house is free of ticks and my dogs. And for the money its the best thing you can get that doesn't cost alot to find out it doesn't work anyway. I have two Siberean Mixes. One has a super thick coat so you have to work alittle harder to get the collar closer to the skin. But the other onehas reg coat and no problem

Rated 5 out of 5 great product
Just a note to say these collars work really well. After removing more than 60 ticks from my dogs skin and having her treated for lyme disease, my vet recommended this collar. My dog has not had another tick attached to her skin since. Only downfall is they do jump on her fur and quickly back off again looking for another host.

Rated 5 out of 5 excellent product
These collars really do work. First experience with ticks left me to remove 60 + ticks from my dogs skin. (upstate NY and yes the lyme disease is rampant. my dog was infected from those first 60 ticks and was treated for lyme disease.) Collars are amazing, I haven't found another tick under my dogs skin since. It does take a day or two for the active chemical to work properly. Beware - ticks will jump on the fur and quickly back off looking for something else to feed on. My vet has better prices than these.

Rated 3 out of 5 What covers the other 3%?
My Bichon is on Vectra & the Preventic Collar I just got 3 days ago. Still finding live ticks on her. Both products say takes care of 97%. How do you get rid of the other 3%? I have had the house exterminated twice and the yard & wash everything possible in hot water & heat dried everything I couldn't wash. Both me & my poor dog have had it. I hope this collar helps. My Vet's office gave me Trifexis which started all of this telling me it was for heartworms, fleas, ticks & even allergies.. NOT SO!

Rated 2 out of 5 Did not work for my dogs!
I have two lab mixes, both about 60 pounds, and I got these collars for we would go on hikes in the woods. I put the collars on before we left the house, we were only gone for about 30 minutes hiking, and when we got back I found at least 10 ticks on both dogs!!!! It took us all day to get rid of them and even noticed some the next day. We also use frontline to protect and this was to be added protection. Would have been better with out them.
