Scalibor Protectorband Collars are available in two sizes and are for use on dogs. They contain the potent insecticide and repellent deltamethrin. It is primarily used to prevent ticks, sand flies and mosquitoes from biting dogs. Using a Scalibor collar is one of the most effective ways of preventing dogs from acquiring diseases such as Leishmaniasis, Lymes disease (Borreliosis) , Ehrlichiosis, Babesiosis and heartworm disease. These are all transmitted by biting insects or ticks. Scalibor is suitable for use on dogs in the UK, but is particularly recommended for use in dogs travelling on the Pet Passport Scheme to Southern Europe and other areas. Scalibor should not be used on cats

The Scalibor Protectorband Collar should be replaced after 6 months to maintain continuous protection.

It is important to measure your dog's neck circumference to work out which collar is needed. The Small/Medium collar has a length of 48cm and so it is suitable for neck cirumferences of up to around 44cm, if properly fitted. If your dog has a neck circumference beyond 44cm then it is advised to purchase the Large collar.

You didn’t send the Scalibor collar in the packaging I ordered and I could have got the one you sent a lot cheaper.

Flea collar

Susan Archibald

  • VioVet customer since 2017
  • From: Cumbria, United Kingdom

can I use this on my 9week old mini dachshund

  • VioVet Staff

Yes, the Scalibor collar is safe to use on puppies from 7 weeks old.

Nexgard Spectra

Suzanne Bodenham

  • VioVet customer since 2015
  • From: Isle of Wight, United Kingdom

Is this collar safe to use with Nexgard Spectra

  • VioVet Staff

These two products have very different ingredients, so they can be used together. Scalibor is better in some ways because it has a repellent action. Nexgard is effective after a parasite (eg tick) has taken a blood meal and disease transmission is therefore possible before the parasite has been killed. Using both together is indeed likely to increase the efficacy of parasite treatment.

What size collar do they need?


  • VioVet customer since 2012
  • From: Pembrokeshire, United Kingdom

Hi- I have two dogs with 18" necks who weigh around 16-18KG. Which size should I go for?

  • VioVet Staff

The small collar would be fine for your dogs, this is suitable for medium weight dogs such as yours. (It is the surface area of the dog which is treated in fact, but the 48cm collar will be perfect.)

Do I need to use a flea collar or Spot on as well

VioVet Visitor

I Am travelling to Spain and Portugal in December until April or May next year. Is your collar required/nessecary as I believe its not really mosquito / sand flies season.

If you recommend yes... would I also need to put a flea collar /use Spot on as well? Or does your one do everything.


  • VioVet Staff

Depending on the area you are in, the winter is indeed a very low risk period. However the Spring is high risk for ticks so I would recommend using the collar for the duration of your trip. It is best to use a spot-on for fleas at the same time too.

Can dog sleep in our bed/Scalibor


Is it dangerous for humans to sleep in the same bed/kiss amd cuddle a dog wearing Scalibor? (Especially first few days)

What about children?

  • VioVet Staff

The ingredient in Scalibor is not toxic to humans in the levels they are present in these collars, though some people are potentially more sensitive to it than others. At very high doses it is dangerous to people but that cannot occur from these collars. Having said that it makes sense to minimise or eliminate any human contact with it. Children obviously should be protected if possible. Anybody who has regular contact over a period of time can develop a greater sensitivity to it. You have identified the biggest concerns and you should try to be sensible about things, though not paranoid about them. Young children should not have direct contact with a collar, especially if recently applied. They should also not have prolonged close contact with a dog wearing the collar, such as sleeping with the dog. The active ingredient can be absorbed through the skin to some extent. If you use the collar, reducing direct contact, especially for children, is just sensible.

Tick prevention for Swimming Pat Dogs

Shirley Waller

  • VioVet customer since 2014
  • From: Lincolnshire, United Kingdom

As our Goldens are visiting Pat dogs who love swimming and 1 receiving hydrotheraphy and swimming advised by vet for health reasons I am using herbal NoMates but want additional prevention for TICKS. Find Spot ons leave neck where dogs are petted oily. If I took collar off for visits and Swimming would it help. Any other suggestions

  • VioVet Staff

The usual advice is to avoid any swimming at all for the first 5 days after the collar has been applied. After that, it is OK to remove the collar while swimming etc, and re-apply the collar as soon as the dog has mostly dried off.

Swimming with Scalibor Collar

Veronica Bilbe

  • VioVet customer since 2014
  • From: Surrey, United Kingdom

I am taking five working cockers to Portugal. They are all mad on swimming and I would like to know how effective these collars are if they get wet ?
Thank you

  • VioVet Staff

While occasional contact with water does not reduce the effectiveness of the collar, it should always be removed before swimming and bathing the dog because the active substance is harmful to fish and other aquatic organisms. Dogs must be prevented from swimming in water for the first five days of wearing the collar.

Safe use with Advocate Prescription Spot On

Naomi Bryden

I am taking my dog to America and central America for over a year and suspect I shall be prescribed a heart-worm effective spot on treatment, such as Advocate, to prevent the infestation of lice/ticks/worms etc. Would you also advise using something like Scalibor Protectorband Collar, to deter any mosquitos as well?

I am aware that heart-worm is rare, and rarely even fatal and also that these anti heart-worm medicines are fairly potent chemicals - as such I do not want to over dose my dog, causing more long term harm than good. Would you advise I take something more topical like garlic water to deter mosquitos?

Many Thanks

  • VioVet Staff

Many dogs which travel to these areas do in fact die of heartworm, Leishmaniasis, Babesiosis etc. I would certailnly recommend using a Scalibor collar and also Advocate or an equivalent. It is true that there are fairly potent chemicals in these products and side effects can happen, though they are rare. However the chances of a non-native dog picking up a serious infection are higher (though not 100%). If I were you, I would use the products.

Use with other spot on's ?

Jenny Newcombe

  • VioVet customer since 2013
  • From: Berkshire, United Kingdom

is it safe to use if the dog also uses Advocate for worming?

  • VioVet Staff

The active ingredients of these 2 products should not interact and we would expect it to be safe to use both products together.
