For the control of fleas on cats for up to 4 months

4.3 Contraindications

Do not use on kittens under 6 months of age

4.4 Special warnings for each target species

Do not allow animals to chew the collar.

Fleas from pets often infest animals’ basket, bedding and regular resting

areas such as carpets and soft furnishings which should be treated with a

suitable insecticide and vacuumed regularly. Remove fleas from young

kittens and nursing queens by careful use of a flea comb.

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

Wash hands thoroughly after handling the collar

Dimpylate is an organophosphorus compound: DO NOT handle if

under medical advice not to work with ANTICHOLINESTERASES.

Do not sleep with pets wearing flea collars

If you feel unwell following the use of this product, seek medical advice

iii. Other precautions

None

4.6 Adverse reactions (frequency and seriousness)

A slight irritation on the neck may occasionally occur.

reaction occur.

Do not use any other insecticides while the collar is being worn or within 7

days of removal.

4.9 Amount(s) to be administered and administration route

Insecticidal collar for cats, weighing 14 g and 35 cm in length

Remove collar from pack and fasten around the cat’s neck adjusting until a

comfortable fit is achieved. In the fully-grown cat, correct fitting will allow one

index finger to be inserted comfortably between the collar and the neck. Any

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

disposed of with the domestic refuse. Replace every 4 months if flea

reinfestation is a risk.

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

Dimpylate is an organophosphorus compound and atropine is antidotal.

Signs of overdosage include drowsiness, listlessness or respiratory difficulty.

4.11 Withdrawal period(s)

Not applicable

5. PHARMACOLOGICAL PROPERTIES

Pharmacotherapeutic group:

Ectoparaciticides, insecticides and repellents, ectoparaciticides for topical

use, incl. insecticides, organophosphorous compounds

ATC Vet Code: QP53AF03

Insecticidal collar for cats contains diazinon as a parasiticide

5.1 Pharmacodynamic properties

Dimpylate, an organophosphorus parasiticide, is active against common fleas

(Ctenocephalides) of cats. 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.

(ATCVet code amended)

5.2 Pharmacokinetic properties

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 4 months.
