Antiparasitic collars for pets: suspension or withdrawal of their marketing authorization in France

The French authorities have reassessed the veterinary medicines used to prevent and / or combat ectoparasites (fleas and ticks), which have been authorized in France through the national marketing authorization procedure. A potential danger to children was highlighted if they have prolonged and repeated contact with a pet wearing an antiparasitic collar containing dimpylat, tertrachlorvinphos or propoxur. The Belgian authorities are waiting for a European decision on the matter and recommend caution.
