finger to be inserted 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. Leave in place until the collar’s effective life is exhausted. Replace after 4

months if re-infestation with fleas is a risk.

5. PHARMACOLOGICAL PROPERTIES

ATC VetCode: QP53AF15

Collar for cats contains Dimpylate 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.

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’s matrix, the product remains

active for up to 4 months.
