Immediately after placing it on the dog's neck, the Scalibor® ProtectorBand starts releasing deltamethrin, the active substance that keeps phlebotomes and ticks away. This is evenly distributed over the dog's skin, until it reaches the entire body. Since their release is not done by evaporation (as with other collars), greater efficiency is achieved, avoiding waste and unpleasant odors.
Leishmaniasis is caused by a protozoan transmitted by an insect, in the hot and humid areas of the globe, including Mediterranean countries like Portugal. The first symptoms are the gradual loss of hair and weight, in addition to generalized skin lesions. Although the disease has treatment, the debilitating condition can be fatal.
The season most prone to the attack of this insect is from March to November. Follow some simple advice and protect your dog:
- Keep your dog indoors during the hours of most insect activity, from dusk to dawn.
- Protect your dog from 95% of the bites, during the phlebotome activity season, with the Scalibor® ProtectorBand (internal reference).
Scalibor® ProtectorBand comes in two sizes:
- For large dogs: 65 cm
