DO I NEED TO TAKE OFF MY DOG’S EXISTING COLLAR BEFORE PLACING COLLAR-ME TICKLESS™ ON?
No. Your dog can continue wearing the regular collar. Collar-Me Tickless’s efficacy is not affected by your dog’s other collar.
HOW DO I USE COLLAR-ME TICKLESS™?
Collar-Me Tickless™ must be worn by the dog in order to kill ticks and fleas. Attach Collar-Me Tickless™ directly to your dog, DO NOT place Collar-Me Tickless™ over your dog’s existing collar in order to most effectively kill ticks and fleas. Maximum effectiveness is reached 2-3 weeks after the collar is applied and will provide effective control for 6 months.
IS THE COLLAR REALLY ONE SIZE FITS ALL?
Yes! After you have secured the collar through the buckle, use a pair of scissors to cut off the excess. Generally, you should be able to place two fingers under the collar. Any additional length should be cut off and disposed of.
WHERE CAN I PURCHASE COLLAR-ME TICKLESS™?
Collar-Me Tickless™ is available to purchase right here in this store!
SHOULD I BE WORRIED ABOUT TICKS?
Ticks are common across the United states and carry diseases, like Lyme disease. Ticks can survive for nearly 3 months in temperatures close to freezing so it’s important to replace Collar-Me Tickless™ every 6 months for continuous protection. You can easily prevent ticks from feeding off your dog by using Collar-Me Tickless™.
DOES THE FLEA OR TICK HAVE TO BITE MY PET FOR THE MEDICINE TO WORK?
No. DogCare LLC®’s Collar-Me Tickless™ kills pests when they come in contact with the dog’s coat.
DO I NEED TO TREAT MY PET FOR FLEAS AND TICKS YEAR-ROUND?
Yes. Prevention is the best way to ensure your pet’s health. Fleas may survive in your home throughout the winter and can withstand temperatures as low as 33 degrees for up to 5 days.
Save your pet and home from a potentially costly infestation with regular treatment.
IF I TREAT ONE PET, DO I NEED TO TREAT ALL MY PETS?
Absolutely. All of your pets must be treated in order to kill ticks and fleas on each animal.
I PUT THE COLLAR ON YESTERDAY BUT I STILL SEE TICKS AND FLEAS; IS THE PRODUCT WORKING?
Yes. Fleas and ticks get very active as they die, and move to the top of the pet’s coat, where they are more visible. This is actually a sign that the product is working. It may take 2-3 weeks to reach maximum effectiveness because the active ingredient is released slowly over time. However, if you’re still seeing fleas and ticks 2-3 weeks after applying the collar, you may have an infestation in your yard or elsewhere.
CAN I STOP USING COLLAR-ME TICKLESS™ ONCE THE FLEAS AND TICKS ARE GONE?
No. Regular treatment is recommended to prevent future infestations, keeping your pet healthy and happy. Replace Collar-Me Tickless™ every 6 months for continuous control.
SPOT-ON BUGOFF FOR DOGS™ FAQs
WHAT IS SPOT-ON BUGOFF FOR DOGS™?
Spot-On BugOff for Dogs™ is a triple action formula that kills adult fleas and ticks, prevents eggs and larvae from growing to adulthood and prevents new pests from getting on your dog. Spot-On BugOff for Dogs™ contains two active ingredients: Permethrin and Pyriproxyfen. Permethrin is an insecticide/matricide that kills and repels adult fleas, lice, and ticks. When applied, it disperses
in the pet’s natural skin oils into the sebum, protecting your dog from pests. Pyriproxyfen (also called Nylar) is an insect growth regulator (or IGR) that is particularly effective at preventing eggs and larvae from developing into infection spreading adults.
IF MY DOG ALREADY HAS FLEAS AND TICKS WILL IT KILL THEM?
Yes. The Permethrin in Spot-On BugOff for Dogs™ is a fast acting pesticide and repellent of fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, biting flies, mites, and lice. Following application, the medicine spreads across the skin surface of the dog and dissolves into the skin. When the pyrethroids reach the hair follicle, they tightly bind to the hair shaft and remain there. Permethrin requires contact of the insect with the chemical compound to repel them. The compound is absorbed through the cuticle of the parasite and exerts a toxic effect on the nerves of the parasite, acting as a noxious stimulus, causing a flushing effect where the fleas become hyperactive. Ticks will exhibit a “hot foot” behavior, scurrying across the animal, eventually falling off and dying.
IS SPOT-ON BUGOFF FOR DOGS MADE IN AMERICA?
Yes. DogCare LLC® products are researched, developed, manufactured, and packaged in small cities surrounding the Kansas City area.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SPOT-ON BUGOFF FOR DOGS™ AND FRONTLINE PLUS®?
Spot-On BugOff for Dogs™ effectively kills adult fleas and ticks, and eggs and larvae, as does Frontline Plus®. Spot-On BugOff for Dogs™ has the added benefit of repelling these parasites. The Permethrin in Spot-On BugOff for Dogs™ is a fast acting insecticide which spreads across the dog’s skin and exerts a toxic effect on the nerves of the parasites once they come in contact with the dog’s skin. This causes them to fall off and die before feeding can occur. Spot-On BugOff for Dogs™ will also repel mosquitoes and biting flies, but does require contact by the parasites before being repelled. Frontline® uses S-(methopreme) while Spot-On BugOff for Dogs™ has an IGR of pyriproxyfen which prevents flea eggs fleas from developing into biting adults. Spot-On BugOff for Dogs™ sells for just a fraction of the cost of Frontline Plus®.
HOW DOES SPOT-ON BUGOFF FOR DOGS™ COMPARE TO BAYER'S K9 ADVANTIX®?
Spot-On BugOff for Dogs™ and Bayer’s K9 Advantix® has Permethrin to kill and repel fleas, lice and ticks and Pyriproxyfen to inhibit the growth of fleas to stop a flea infestation. Spot-On Bug Off for Dogs™ provides triple action flea and tick control: killing, repelling and preventing pests for just a fraction of the cost of K9 Advantix®.

HOW DO I APPLY SPOT-ON BUGOFF FOR DOGS™ TO MY DOG?
First make sure that your dog is dry and that your dog will remain dry for 24 hours after application. Remove product tube from package. Hold tube upright, pull off cap. Turn the cap around and place opposite end of cap back on tube. Twist cap to break seal, remove cap from tube. Invert tube over dog and use open end to part dog’s hair. Apply the entire tube as a spot to the skin at three different locations along the dog’s back between the shoulder blades and base of the tail. Squeeze tube to apply any remaining solution to the dog’s skin. Spot-On BugOff for Dogs™ is available for dogs ranging in various weight ranges. Make sure that you purchase the correct dosage for your pet’s size. Do not administer Spot-On BugOff for Dogs™ to dogs weighing less than 5lbs. Spot-On BugOff for Dogs™ should be applied to the skin at three different locations along the dog’s back between the shoulder blades and base of the tail. It is important that the product is applied to the dog’s skin and not just dispersed through the dog’s hair. Make sure you read the label instructions under “Directions for Use” before applying Spot-On BugOff for Dogs™ on you dog.
HOW CAN ONLY A FEW DROPS OF SPOT-ON BUGOFF FOR DOGS™ PROTECT MY DOG FROM FLEAS? SHOULDN'T IT BE APPLIED OVER MY DOG’S ENTIRE BODY?
Spot-On BugOff for Dogs™ has ingredients which are carried through the oil in your dog’s coat and skin to kill and repel fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes. The application need only be applied as a spot to the skin at three or more different locations along the dog’s back between the shoulder blades and the base of the tail. Spot-On BugOff for Dogs™ is absorbed and distributed on the dog by the sebaceous glands (microscopic glands in the skin that secrete an oily/waxy matter called sebum to lubricate and waterproof the skin and fur).
SHOULD I BATHE MY DOG BEFORE APPLYING SPOT-ON BUGOFF FOR DOGS™?
It would be best to apply Spot-On BugOff for Dogs™ a few days after a bath so there is time for oils on the skin to accumulate. Bathing with a shampoo or soap frequently (more often than once every couple of weeks) could reduce the effectiveness of any spot on product like Spot-On BugOff for Dogs™. If you wish to bathe your dog before application, wait 24-48 hours to allow the oils to build up so that Spot-On BugOff for Dogs™ can properly be absorbed. Bathing your dog just before applying Spot-On BugOff for Dogs™ will actually reduce the speed of transmission speed of the actives because there will be less oils on the dog’s skin

Spot-On BugOff for Dogs™ provides a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you’re not satisfied with the product, return it to the retailer where you purchased it for a full refund. We’re also interested in your feedback, so please share any concern with our customer service team.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR THE PRODUCT TO WORK?
Permethrin must come in contact with the insect to kill it, so until the chemical compound can be absorbed and spread throughout the dog’s skin, you may see fleas or ticks on your pet following application. Spot-On BugOff for Dogs has demonstrated greater than 92% control of fleas within one day of application. Depending on the size of the dog and oils on their skin, it may take up to 24 to 48 hours for the product to be absorbed throughout the dog’s skin. Generally, once the fleas or ticks come in contact with the permethrin on the dog’s skin, they should die in less than 4 hours.
IS THERE AN EXPIRATION DATE?
No, there is no expiration date.
