Collars against fleas for cats and kittens

Поговорим об ошейниках от блох для кошек

Of all the antiparasitic drugs, the flea collar for cats has managed to gain fame of the easiest to use and safe for the animal. Indeed, what could be easier: he bought a collar from fleas, put on a pet and forgot about insects, and about continuous scabies in an animal, and about the danger of infection with worms.

Most cat owners sincerely believe that the collar against fleas frightens off insects only with the smell and is therefore absolutely safe for animals and people.

Is it really?

How a Flea Collar Works

In fact, in principle, flea collars are no different from drops, sprays and shampoos. Fleas they destroy and frighten off with the same insecticide poisons, which are contained in other antiparasitic drugs, and therefore can not be considered either safer or less allergenic.

Ошейники от блох содержат инсектициды и отпугивающие вещества

The essence of the work of such a miracle of veterinary thought is that the insecticide to which the collar is impregnated, poison the fleas that sit on it, and scare away with its odor those that are on any part of the animal's body. Judging by the feedback from users who have been fortunate enough to observe how such flea collars operate, serious contamination of the animal immediately after putting on it means that fleas start to flee in large numbers from the cat, and adult insects do not remain on the cat for half an hour.

But against the larvae and eggs of fleas, the cat collar is ineffective. Even if the larvae suffering from the smell of an insecticide simply can not physically leave the animal. They can be said to achieve a measure: it is only the larva in such an unhealthy situation turn into an adult insect, as she immediately tries to escape from the animal.

The action of the flea collar is also good for its versatility: such adaptations work well both to rid the animal of parasites and to prevent infection by them. No flea will jump from an attractive shabby and dirty street cat to a homemade luminous homemade cat with a "nightmarish ribbon" around his neck. That's why forums of cats lovers are literally torn from the abundance of reports on how well a flea collar helps.


"Every summer in a private house the cat starts to itch, and in my hair I find fleas. It's disgusting. But it is enough to buy a blue collar on the bird, dress and boldly let the cat out into the yard. All the old fleas are running away from him, and the new ones are not jumping. The main thing is, do not wear it at home, or these little creatures themselves will start biting you at night. "

Inna, Moscow

On a note…

A collar for cats and cats from fleas is first of all a collar, and only then - "from fleas". While wearing a cat, he will definitely let the brigades know about the trapping of stray animals, that in front of them is someone's pet. And such protection is sometimes much more important than protecting from some insects ...

Terms of use and precautions

The instruction on the use of flea collars is quite simple: the product is taken out of the package, unfastened, put on the cat and fastened so that it snuggles on the neck of the pet, but does not cause him any discomfort. If the product is removed for a while, it should be packed in a plastic bag so that it does not fizzle out.

Пример ошейника от блох

Different collars for cats from fleas operate for different periods of time. The standard period of effectiveness of the product is two months, but some American and German products remain effective for 6-7 months.

In addition to fleas, these products are able to scare off mites, lice and withers, but from all this fraternity fleas are the least resistant. But against such, for example, ixodid ticks such a collar is usually effective no more than one month.

On a note

There are reports that some domestic companies produce very severe collars from fleas and ticks for cats, some of which can harm not only parasites, but also the animal itself, causing allergic reactions and dermatitis. The reason for this lies in the fact that often the manufacturer does not particularly bother about the delicacy of the product, using for its filling standard insecticides for cattle. Therefore, supporting the domestic manufacturer, you should choose a collar from fleas and ticks for cats, which is at least checked by other users, recommended by veterinarians and is not in the minimum price category.

When using a collar, do not use other insecticides against fleas: a synergistic effect may affect the condition of the animal. And in general, individual cats can respond to such protection by allergic reaction, hair loss and even skin diseases. This is not evidence of the toxicity of the collar, but only a sign that this particular brand does not fit a particular cat.


"This summer, bought a fashionable American collar Hartz. His cat regularly all the season carried and never scratched, but after I got this miracle out of the package and put it on Rink, sprinkled and there was a runny nose. The cat had to be left for the night on the street, because if she went into the bedroom, my nose swelled and I could not sleep. Allergy, in short. Although the fleas were not exactly. "

Anna, Ryazan

Choose the collar that fits your pet, you can from a large number of products on the market. Let's look at some of the more popular ones.

Collars from fleas Hartz

Hartz is considered a "star" collar and for its efficiency, most of the coders are oriented as a standard. Fleas, lice and mites from it really die very quickly. In addition, the manufacturer has managed to make its product resistant to wetting: even in wet form it continues to actively destroy parasites.

Ошейник от блох для кошек Hartz

The price of the Hartz collar starts from 100 rubles, depending on the model. The charm of a wide range of this company lies in the ability to choose the option that is ideal for a particular cat. Hartz does not release collars from fleas for kittens , and the minimum age at which a cat can be awarded such protection against insects is 3 months.


"I do not know, I do not recognize anything except Hartz. Tried and Bolfo (dear), and Bethar (too quickly exhale), but Hartz - a real golden mean. In general, buy boldly, fleas from your fuzzy just will not be. "

Lana, Moscow

Bolfo: flea collars for cats

Bolfo products also have water resistance and a separation of models by weight of the animal. But in general, these funds are more expensive and more prestigious: the price of one collar from fleas is 200 rubles.

Bolfo - ошейник от блох для кошек

True enough for a period of 4 months (to protect against ticks - 2.5), and therefore its profitability is the same as that of Hartz.

Beaphar Collar

The effectiveness of Beaphar is achieved through the use of a natural plant insecticide - Margoze extract. This substance is safe for cats, and therefore Beaphar actively produces and collars from fleas for kittens, which can be worn on a baby at the age of six months. The effectiveness of such eco-collars is comparable to the efficiency of Hartz or Bolfo products.

It is interesting that the price of Beaphar products is only 64 rubles, which makes it the leader among the most famous means in terms of the ratio of value and result.


"The biggest problem in the nursery was to protect against the fleas of the sphinxes. All our cats go in summer in collars, and therefore freely move around the enclosures. Sphynxes also suffer from fleas more than other cats, but they have the same standard Hartzovskie cause irritation. The exit was found by our superintendent: his neighbor in the house dressed the sphinx in the Bethar collars, and they never had any irritation. We tried, evaluated the effectiveness and now transferred the entire nursery to Bethar. "

Marina Tomilina, Tomsk

On a note

Folk craftsmen learned how to make anti-collar collars from natural preparations with their own hands. To do this, take the flannel ribbon and soak it in a mixture of lavender, thyme and eucalyptus oils. After that, the flannel, without pressing, is slightly dried in the sun and dressed on an animal.

Bar collar

An interesting domestic product, somehow confidently giving odds to foreign analogs. At least in price and availability - for sure. However, even for 45 rubles this collar pleases many cat lovers with efficiency and the absence of side effects in animals.

Барс - ошейник инсектоакарицидный для кошек

Perfectly suits first of all domestic cats, only occasionally sticking out their nose on the street.

Collar Doctor Zoo: cheap and simple

In fact, Doctor Zoo is an analog of Barsik. It costs about the same amount, the duration of its action does not exceed two months, and while it has virtually no reviews of allergic reactions in cats. So you can apply it safely.

"We tried many collars. The most effective are Bolfo. They do not need to be removed during the whole summer. But expensive. But Doctor Zoo is simpler, but there are pennies. Each cat has two collars for the season, and if she does not spend the night in the hayloft, the money works perfectly. "

Peter, Goose-crystal

But the main thing, from which you need to stay away - from very attractive at prices and not at all terrible for fleas of Chinese collars. They are flooding the market today, but users from such wonders of the industry from the Middle Kingdom are spat especially actively. Therefore, if you keep your pet from parasites, then do not save on it.

If you decide to fight against fleas on your own, then we recommend using only proven in practice tools that have shown their high efficiency:

    Hello. Bought a cat collar from fleas and ticks firm beaphar. We got out of the package and immediately felt a terrible smell.

  22. Svetlana :

    Our cat, the British, got a flea literally after walking in the entrance, he does not go out into the street. We live in Germany. In the pet store we sucked goods for 50 euros! Spray for the whole apartment, ointment and drops. They left the apartment all for 4 hours, while the spray "himself" was processing the apartment. Nothing! Neither ointment, nor powder, nor drops - zero effect. Friends advised the collar. Three days later, the cat again began to grow hair where he combed it, the fleas disappeared. The only danger of a collar, if the cat jumps from a height. She can catch it by the door, the window sill, etc. And I will add, from effective info about the British. They, like many thoroughbred cats, have an allergy to beef and wheat. He was also scrubbing very hard. I thought fleas. The friend advised to exclude both of the food, and the fur is again fluffy, silvery.

  23. Larissa :

    We can not take out the fleas, which they just did not try, we deduce - they appear after three days, they are already tortured. A remedy in the pharmacy is very expensive, and harmful for the child. Help.

  24. Asya :

    Tell me, please, will the collar not affect the health of the little kitten? He is only 2 months old.

  25. Olga :

    Treat the animal with Dana Ultra spray, and then put a collar on Dana too, there will be no relapse any more. I'm treating my pets just like that from parasites, and then I dress all the collars and excellent prophylaxis is obtained, no parasite is delayed.

  26. Elena :

    Tell me, please, have bought a cat collar for kittens Beaphar. Already a week, and fleas are running, as before. Maybe the collar for the cat is rather weak? Previously, on other cats, only the collar of this company was used and always the result was excellent!
