Abstract
(EN)
A free-swinging, slow release insecticidal tag (10) designed for attachment to the neck collar (30) of a domesticated animal for the prevention and treatment of tick and flea infestation is described. The insecticide includes at least one pyrethroid compound, such as, but not limited to zeta-cypermethrin. A synergist, such as, but not limited to piperonyl butoxide is combined with the zeta-cypermethrin to produce a synergized insecticide. The synergized insecticide is then impregnated into a resin base, such as, but not limited to polyvinyl chloride and the shape of a tag or medallion. The tag (10) is then attached to the neck collar (30) of the animal in such a manner so as to allow the tag to physically contact various parts of the animal's body, for example, during the grooming process. The synergized insecticide is released from the tag (10) over the course of several months and is particularly effective against all of the parasites life stage of various domestic animal pests, such as, but not limited to ticks and fleas.

Cette invention concerne une plaque (10), destinée à être attachée au collier (30) d'un animal de compagnie, pouvant se balancer librement, et diffusant lentement un produit de prévention et de traitement des infestations par les tiques et les puces. L'insecticide comprend au moins un composé pyréthroïde, notamment, mais pas exclusivement, de la zêta-cyperméthrine. On combine un agent synergique, notamment, mais pas exclusivement, du butoxyde de pipéronyle avec la zêta-cyperméthrine pour produire un insecticide synergique. On utilise alors cet insecticide synergique pour imprégner une résine, notamment, mais pas exclusivement, du polychlorure de vinyle. Le tout est ensuite formé pour obtenir un dispositif à diffusion continue sans odeur en forme de plaque ou de médaille. La plaque (10) est alors attachée au collier (30) de l'animal de manière à ce qu'elle entre en contact avec différentes parties du corps de l'animal, quand il fait sa toilette par exemple. La plaque (10) diffuse pendant plusieurs mois l'insecticide synergique, et constitue un moyen efficace de lutte contre toutes les différentes phases du cycle vital des parasites, notamment, mais pas exclusivement les tiques et les puces, touchant les animaux domestiques.
