After diligently controlling the flea population in our home all spring, we tried the Scalibor collar on our dog back in June and are now facing an infestation of EPIC proportions. Checked with our vet to see if we did something wrong - nope. It's the product that's the culprit. We are angry and our animals are miserable! I've read other unhappy reviews now, as well, and want to put in my two cents to spread the word: DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT FOR FLEA CONTROL.

Tired of paying high prices for flea products at the Vet's office. This collar lasts longer than most & I don't have to worry if it gets wet. Will order another collar in 6 months from Entirelypets and save money.

These collars are exactly like the ones from my vet and they are quite a lot less expensive.
I am very satisfied with my purchase.
