Mitaban Liquid Concentrate, and Preventic Tick Collars for Dogs.
Amitraz kills mites and ticks by interfering with their nervous system. It will also affect the nervous system of dogs if overdosed. DO NOT use Amitraz on cats. Amitraz is a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI). Do not mix with other pesticides or other medications that affect the nervous system. Severe toxicity may occur if amitraz-containing collars are ingested.
Varies depending on the individual dog's sensitivity.
Common side effects of the medication include sedation and a dry skin and haircoat. Serious side effects include low blood pressure, decreased body temperature, elevation of blood glucose, dilated pupils, slow heart rate, slowed intestinal rate, ataxia, prolonged sedation, vasoconstriction, vomiting, diarrhea, and seizures. Death may occur.
Contact your veterinarian. Remove the Preventic Tick Collar or other source. If exposure was from a dip, bathe and rinse the animal thoroughly. Dry to prevent chilling. If the pet ingested all or part of an amitraz-containing collar, induce vomiting.
General treatment: For oral exposure, the induction of vomiting may be continued, gastric lavage is performed. In cases of dermal exposure, bathing and rinsing is continued.
Supportive treatment: IV fluids may be given. Appropriate measures are taken to maintain the body temperature. The blood glucose level, blood pressure, and heart rate are monitored.
Specific treatment: Yohimbine may help reverse some of the toxic effects.
