Scalibor Protector Band for Dogs
by Merck Animal Health
Up to 6 months of protection against ticks
An easy and effective way to protect your dog from ticks, including those that may carry organisms that cause serious diseases such as Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain, spotted fever.
Put a Scalibor® Protector Band on your dog and within 2 to 3 weeks of continuous wear, your dog gets proven, long-lasting tick protection that works for up to 6 months.
Why Scalibor® Protector Band?
One easy application protects your dog from ticks for up to 6 months
- That means only 2 applications give your dog year-round protection, without the hassle of monthly treatments you have to remember 12 times a year!
Scalibor® Protector Band kills up to 98% of ticks within 24 hours
- It kills ticks fast, and within one day most of the ticks already on your dog will be dead.
It kills ticks that may transmit serious diseases
- With Lyme disease present in every US state, and oddly-named but deadly blood diseases like babesiosis and ehrlichiosis, tick-borne diseases are a growing concern for everyone, including dog owners.
It is odorless
Let’s face it, some tick and flea products smell bad. But the Scalibor® Protector Band has no odor and transfers to your dog’s skin through friction, not by vapor action.
Scalibor® Protector Band is water resistant – it can be worn when swimming
Scalibor® Protector Band goes where your dog goes! It’s water resistant, so there’s no need to remove it before your dog swims or walks in the rain. It remains effective, wet or dry.
There is no need for drying time, as with spot-on products
Now you can avoid the inconvenience and hassle of monthly spot-on treatments, and with Scalibor® Protector Band you can handle your dog right after application.
It also provides up to 6 months protection against fleas*
- Ask your veterinarian about this added protection.
It’s fully Adjustable - One size fits all
The flexible Scalibor® Protector Band is large enough to fit even the biggest dogs and is easily cut to fit small dogs too.
Scalibor makes it easy to keep your dog protected year-round
Just two Scalibor® Protector Bands applied 6 months apart can protect your dog for an entire year.
Over 20 million have already been sold in Europe
With so many already sold and used worldwide, Scalibor® Protector Band studies show that it is well tolerated, and not harmful to people or dogs when used according to label directions.
*The first time it is applied, your dog must wear a Scalibor® Protector Band for 1 to 2 weeks before protective levels are established over the entire body, and maximum effectiveness may not occur for up to 3 weeks. So it’s best to apply the Scalibor® Protector Band at least 10 to 14 days before you anticipate tick and/or flea exposure.
Note: If you bathe your dog with a degreasing shampoo, or shampoo for treating seborrhea (a skin disease), the natural oils from the skin will be removed, and the effectiveness of the Scalibor® Protector Band may be reduced temporarily. But as soon as bath time is over, the Scalibor® Protector Band will start re-delivering the active ingredient to the natural oils of the skin.
