I live in Crete and we have a problem here with Leishmania and when I first came here, one of my dogs developed the disease. I didn't know anything about this disease until then and my vet recommended Scalibor collars. My dogs are now never without these collars, and have done now for years. I'm confident in the product and wouldn't be without them.
My dogs wear these from spring to autumn each year. I live in Italy and buy them for protection against leishmaniasis and tick-borne diseases. There are a lot of ticks in the countryside during the summer and the collars work brilliantly against them. They're also supposed to offer some protection against heartworm, although I follow my vet's advice and use separate medication for that. This year the collar irritated the neck of one of my dogs for about a week, but fortunately it didn't get so bad I had to remove it. I'm hoping it won't happen again.
This is a great product and we have used it for several years. It is very effective and this price is very competitive. We use it when taking dogs to Mediterranean countries mainly as a protection against sand flies.
We live in Greece and have the same issue with diseases as found in many Mediterranean countries. These collars are vital to protect our dog. And they do just that!!! Cheaper than we can get locally - Thanks very much VetUK, Keep up the excellent service.
Living in Spain we buy this collar every year for April when the ticks are out and to protect against mosquitos which spread heartworm. The price for this collar from VetUK is much better priced even with the postage to Spain then we can get here. Really glad we found this site.
These are super collars. I live in North Northumberland and walk in woods and across fields where deer and sheep graze so Ticks are a huge problem. I put a Scalibor collar on each of my 3 spaniels in April and we are tick free all year round. So much cheaper than Frontline which has never been very effective in my situation. I read about these collars in Dog World 8 years ago and have used them and recommended them since.
