4.5. Special precautions for use

i)Special precautions for use in animals

Do not use on nursing bitches or puppies under 3 months of age.

REMOVE COLLAR FROM DOG IMMEDIATELY SHOULD ANY SIGNS OF

DROWSINESS, LISTLESSNESS OR RESPIRATORY DIFFICULTIES

OCCUR SOON AFTER FIXING OF COLLAR.

ii) Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the veterinary

medicinal products to animals

Wash hands thoroughly after handling the collar.

DIAZINON is an organophosphorus compound: DO NOT HANDLE the collar

if under medical advice not to work with anticholinesterases.

Do not allow children to play with the collar. Sucking or chewing the collar is

dangerous.

Do not sleep with pets wearing flea collars.

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

Do not smoke, eat or drink while handling the collar.

4.6. Adverse reactions (frequency and seriousness)

Occasional skin irritation and alopecia.

Remove collar and consult your veterinary surgeon if any sign of skin irritation or

adverse reactions such as salivation or nervous signs occur.

4.7. Use during pregnancy, lactation or lay

Not for use on nursing or lactating bitches.

4.8. Interaction with other medicinal products and other forms of interaction

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

removal.

4.9. Amounts to be administered and administration route

Remove collar from blister and fasten collar 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, correct fitting will allow two fingers to be inserted between the collar

and the neck. Any excess length of collar extending beyond the buckles should be

cut off and disposed of with the domestic refuse. The collar does not need to be

removed when the animal is being bathed as insecticidal activity remains

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

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

Diazinon is an organophosphorus compound that causes acetylcholine

accumulation in overdose. Atropine sulphate is antidotal. Overdose is

characterised by abdominal pain, diarrhoea, salivation, tremors and pupil

constriction.

4.11. Withdrawal period

Not applicable.

5. PHARMACOLOGICAL PROPERTIES

ATCvet code: QP53AF03.

The product contains 15 % w/w of diazinon as insecticidal component. Diazinon is

an organophosphorus insecticide which acts by inhibiting cholinesterases in

insects.

5.1. Pharmacodynamic properties

Diazinon, an organophosphorus parasiticide, is active against common fleas

(Ctenocephalides) and ticks. It acts mainly by inhibiting insect enzymes such as

cholinesterases. This is achieved when diazinon competes with acetylcholine,

responsible for transmitting nerve impulses between cells, by binding to the

esterase site of the cholinesterase molecules.

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

Because the metabolism of diazinon in insects is very slow, irreversible poisoning

is achieved.

5.2. Pharmacokinetic particulars

The product is a topical speciality. Due to the slow release of diazinon from the

matrix of the collar, parasiticidal activity remains extant for up to 300 days against

fleas and for up to 200 days against ticks.
