Zodiac Breakaway Flea & Tick Collar for Cats
The Zodiac Breakaway Flea Collar does not contain any of organophosphate insecticides the NRDC has instructed consumers to avoid. It is readily available at pet stores, reasonably priced, and can protect your feline from fleas for up to 5 months. It utilizes propoxur, a non-systemic insecticide which has proven effective for killing fleas but has also proven to be toxic to many birds, fish, honeybees, and occasionally, through prolonged exposure, to children. Consumers who feel occasional exposure to chemicals is a necessary evil will likely be pleased with the inexpensive yet effective results.
