Absorbine® Introduces New UltraShield® Flea & Tick Collar for Dogs

Long-lasting flea and tick control collar offers affordable, all-season alternative to spot-on treatments

East Longmeadow, MA – Controlling fleas and ticks on dogs has become an essential and crucial challenge for dog owners, especially as these insects may carry diseases that can threaten the health of the entire family. Taking measures to keep fleas and ticks off your dog is unavoidable, but expanding technologies in on-animal pest control are making the task easier and more effective. Absorbine®, a name trusted in animal care since 1892, is proud to introduce the new UltraShield® Flea & Tick Collar for dogs, which kills fleas and ticks for up to six months in a convenient one-size-fits-all design.

The UltraShield® Flea & Tick Collar kills fleas and ticks for up to six months, including fleas that may transmit Flea Allergy Dermatitis (FAD) and ticks that may carry Lyme disease. The active ingredient used in the collar is 4% deltramethrin insecticide, a synthetic insecticide based on pyrethrins. It has been specially formulated in a polymer matrix to provide effective control of fleas and ticks.

Dogs will enjoy proven protection for up to six months while wearing the UltraShield® Flea and Tick Collar, and full effect is reached at two to three weeks. The slow release formula offers pet owners worry-free, easy-to-apply protection; no need to remember consistent, frequent application of spot on treatments. Combined with the waterproof protection of an all-season band that can be adjusted to the perfect fit, the UltraShield® Flea & Tick Collar is a reliable solution from a name dog owners can trust.

Designing an affordable sustained-release formula collar was essential for completing the full line of UltraShield® flea and tick control products from Absorbine®. “Dog owners are increasingly looking for reliable alternatives to flea and tick spot on treatments,” says Jaime McKinley, Vice President, New Business Development at Absorbine®. “This new generation of flea and tick collar offers a convenient and affordable solution, and the technology we have put behind the UltraShield® Flea & Tick Collar ensures long-lasting protection. This latest innovation from Absorbine® rounds out our family of trusted Ultrashield® flea and tick control products very nicely.”
