EM Tick and Flea Collar - Leather Braid
Collars are made to fit so please leave your dogs neck measurement in your cart notes before checking out.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
EM™ (Effective Microorganism) ceramics emit far infrared waves, the longest rays in the light spectrum. This wavelength is highly compatible with human and animal tissue. The body can absorb them easily at depths up to 3 inches, where they can do lots of good work. Far Infrared waves remove blood cell clusters which improves blood circulation. Because the infrared rays penetrate the tissue, they work deep into body tissue, not just on the surface of the skin.
This improved and balanced environment in your dog (created by EM) can help keep ticks from attaching to your dog.
EM™ ceramics are made by fermenting a special clay with approximately 80 different microorganisms (EM) and then baked. The pipes are baked at 1200 C, due to the fact that in the baking process the structure of the clay changes, trapping the EM within its matrix. As a result, these EM pipes exert their influence purely through their physical properties and remain effective for a long time.
An EM™ Tick Collar can be as effective as any tick repellent found on the market, but without side effects. That makes it also safe for dogs with allergies and sensitivities. However, there is no 100% guarantee EM collars nor any other tick product will keep ticks off of our furry friends!
Nevertheless, the best prevention is to avoid known tick areas, and checking your dog AND yourself for ticks after every nature walk.
EM ceramics are safe if you have children in your household. (although, don't let the kids nor dogs eat them!)
EM tick collars should be replaced every 10-12 months.
It can take up to 4 weeks until the EM's will do "their job"! After the initial 4 week constant wear period the collar may be worn intermittently.
An EM collar is NOT to be attached to a leash! It is only an accessory just like a chemical based flea and tick collar.
YOU WILL GET THE BEST RESULTS WHEN YOUR DOG WEARS THE COLLAR 24 HOURS A DAY. IT IS RECOMMENDED TO KEEP THE EM™ COLLAR ON AT ALL TIMES DURING THE TICK SEASON.
(IT CAN TAKE UP TO 4 WEEKS UNTIL THE EM’S START TO DO THEIR JOB)
RINSE THE COLLAR THOROUGHLY UNDER WARM TAP WATER AND LET IT DRY IN THE SUN ABOUT EVERY SECOND WEEK. (DON'T USE SOAP OR OTHER CHEMICALS!) IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO KEEP THE PIPES CLEAN! YOU CAN ALSO USE A LITTLE NAIL BRUSH, IF YOU WANT TO.
IF YOU ARE USING ESSENTIAL OILS OR A BUG SPRAY IN ADDITION TO THE EM COLLAR, MAKE SURE THE EM CERAMIC PIPES STAY OIL/FAT FREE!!!
SWIMMING WITH THE EM™COLLAR IS NO PROBLEM; JUST LET IT DRY IN THE SUN AFTERWARDS. (ALTHOUGH IT IS NOT TO BE USED IN POOL WATER WITH BLEACH OR OTHER CHEMICALS IN IT! )
IT IS RECOMMENDED TO RENEW THE EM™ COLLAR EVERY YEAR.
AN EM™ COLLAR IS ONLY AN ADDITION TO YOUR MAIN COLLAR! PLEASE DO NOT ATTACH A LEASH TO IT!
FOR YOUR DOGS SAFETY: PLEASE TAKE THE EM™COLLAR OFF, WHEN YOUR DOG IS PLAYING ROUGHER THAN 'NORMAL' WITH OTHER DOGS. IT IS NO PROBLEM TO TAKE THE COLLAR OFF FOR A LITTLE BIT DURING THE DAY.

Measure your dogs neck where you would like the bandana to sit and order the coordinating neck size. Take into to account for thick coat or loose skinned breeds you may want to go up a size if they fall in between size options.
Apparel is sized by your dogs neck, girth, and back length.
Using a soft measuring tape snug but not tightly measure your dogs neck where their collar naturally sits, their girth at the widest part (typically just behind the front legs) and the length from the their collar to the base of their tail.
**Unless otherwise stated. Seasonal items like quilted jackets, dresses and rain gear may have adjustable sizing which is included in the item description.
In your cart notes please include your dogs neck, girth, length and any additional instructions for fitting such as deep chest, long neck, short legs, narrow waist, etc.
