Revised: 22 July 2009

AN: 02106/2008

Do not use on puppies under 12 weeks of age.

4.4 Special warnings for each target species

Do not allow animals to chew the collar.

Fleas from pets often infest the animal’s basket, bedding and regular resting areas such as

carpets and soft furnishings which should be treated with a suitable insecticide and

vacuumed regularly.

4.5 Special precautions for use

i. Special precautions for use in animals

For external use only.

ii. Special precautions for the person administering the veterinary medicinal product to

animals

Do not allow children to play with the collar.

Do not allow children to suck or chew the collar.

Do not smoke, eat or drink while handling collar.

Do not sleep with pets wearing collars.

Dimpylate is an organophosphorus compound: DO NOT handle if under medical

advice not to work with ANTICHOLINESTERASES.

If you feel unwell after handling the collar, seek medical advice.

Wash hands thoroughly after handling the collar.

4.6 Adverse reactions (frequency and seriousness)

Remove the collar immediately should any signs of skin irritation or adverse reactions occur.

Remove THE collar from dog immediately should any signs of drowsiness, listlessness,

TREMOR, HYPERSALIVATION or respiratory difficulties develop soon after fixing of collar.

4.7 Use during pregnancy, lactation or lay

Not for use on nursing or lactating bitches.

Remove fleas from young puppies and nursing bitches by careful use of a flea comb.

AN: 02106/2008

4.9 Amounts to be administered and administration route

Insecticidal collar weighing 24 g and 60 cm in length, for dogs

Insecticidal collar weighing 41 g and 65 cm in length, for large dogs.

Remove the collar from the sachet/blister and fasten around the dog’s neck. When fitted to

the growing dog, ensure the collar is loosened as the animal grows. In the fully-grown dog,

a correct fitting will allow two fingers to be inserted between the collar and the neck. Any

excess length of collar extending beyond the buckle should be cut and disposed of with the

domestic refuse.

The collar does not need to be removed when the animal is being bathed as the insecticidal

activity remains unaffected by water. Leave in place until the collar effective life is

exhausted. Replace after 5 months if reinfestation with fleas or ticks is a risk.

4.10 Overdose (symptoms, emergency procedures, antidotes), if necessary

Dimpylate is an organophosphorus insecticide and atropine is antidotal.

Remove the collar immediately if any signs of skin irritation or adverse reactions occur.

Signs of over dosage include drowsiness, listlessness, tremor, hypersalivation or respiratory

difficulties.

4.11 Withdrawal period

Not applicable

5. PHARMACOLOGICAL PROPERTIES

ATC Vet Code: QP53AF03

The product contains diazinon as a parasiticide

5.1 Pharmacodynamic properties

Dimpylate, an organophosphorus parasticide, is active against common fleas

(Ctenocephalides) and ticks (Rhipicephalus or Dermacentor) of dogs. It acts mainly by

inhibiting insect enzymes such as cholinesterases. This is achieved when dimpylate

competes with acetylcholine, responsible for nerve impulses, by binding to the esterase site

of the cholinesterase molecules.

Acetylcholine, degraded at a lower pace, accumulates and induces disorders. Because the

metabolism of dimpylate in insects is very slow, irreversible poisoning is achieved.

5.2 Pharmacokinetic particulars

In mammals, cholinesterase activity similarly decreases. However, this is only transitory

since enzyme synthesis is resumed and dimpylate is degraded within a very-short period of

time. Dimpylate being slowly released from the collar matrix, the product remains active for

up to 5 months.
