Durvet Spectra Shield is a highly durable collar-attached medallion that protects dogs against fleas and ticks for up to 4 months. It is easy to attach and can be worn during bathing and swimming. It contains zeta cypermethrin that is boosted by piperonyl butoxide for maximum effectiveness. The medallion slowly releases the active ingredients over time and continuously replenishes the dogs’ skin and coat. Kills adult fleas and ticks at any blood-feeding stage. For use on dogs 6 months and older.
This pesticide is extremely toxic to fish and aquatic organisms, including fish and invertebrates. Do not contaminate water by disposal of used collar medallion. Use this product only as specified on this label.
