Use Scalibor collar for years and many dogs, works perfect

Use Advantix as this will help against sand flies as well as ticks and fleas, I believe it's the only one that does?

The leish disease is carried by sandlfies, if they are affected they pass the disease to the target by a bite, it can then be spread by a mosquito biting an infected animal or human that then bites another warm blooded mammal.Humans die of this disease too, but fortunately not very often, it attacks the body`s vital organs and destroys them. If treated early enough the disease can be controlled by drugs.

We brought our Boxer Dog over from the UK and unfortunately he caught this disease here in Paphos, he was very poorly at first but after a course of strong medication and now a tablet daily it appears to be under control and he is back to his lively self.

Hi there

Yes you will have to protect your dog from this horrible disease. Sadly dogs do get Leishmaniasis here. Do take care.
