Finding the best flea and tick collars for your pets makes life a lot easier for you and your outdoors-loving dogs and cats! Just slip one on underneath their regular collar, and they’ll be well protected for several months – no need for harsh chemical treatments or a pricey visit to the dreaded vet! There are so many different kinds out there, so let’s start by taking a look at some key features you need to know about before you buy.
Animal: To make sure you get the right collar for your pet, we’ll let you know if each collar is made specifically for dogs, cats, or both. Each uses different chemicals that are made to be effective without irritating your pet.
Protection Length: We’ll let you know the length of time each collar works, so you can replace them as needed. Dogs and cats that like to swim may need them replaced more often, and we’ll let you know if that’s the case!
Waterproof: Some of the collars we reviewed are waterproof, which keep your dogs and cats well protected while they spend time outside playing in the rain, or if they enjoy taking a swim in your local lake, pond, or backyard pool!
Hypoallergenic: If your pet has sensitive skin or chemical allergies, it can be tough to find a flea and tick collar that they can wear safely. We found several hypoallergenic options that your pet can wear that won’t irritate their skin.
Adjustable: To make sure your pet’s collar won’t slip off or choke them, we’ll let you know if each collar can be adjusted. This is a great feature for puppies and kittens that grow quickly and need their collar adjusted often!
Size: We’ll also let you know the length of each flea and tick collar, so you can find the right size for your pet. There are great options for small dogs and cats and longer options for your bigger furry friends!
Now that know what kind of collar you’ll need, let’s get into the flea and tick collar review! We found 10 of the best collars for both dogs and cats of all sizes, breeds, and more. There are even waterproof options for dogs (and the rare cat) that love to swim! If you don’t have time to read all 10 reviews, that’s fine! Start with the Top Pick and Budget Pick, and then come back later to read the rest!
