Useless against ticks!

I bought this for prevention of fleas and ticks.
With the collar barely 10 days old I noticed a large tick on my dog - only an inch below the collar itself!
Maybe we have tough ticks here in Devon but seems to me the collar is useless against ticks. I had to pull it off - which wasnt easy!
We never like to hear customers disappointed with a purchase from Petplanet.co.uk.
Reinfestation may be prevented with Johnson's Flea & Tick Dog Collar which kills ticks as well as fleas. Ticks may take several days to absorb a lethal quantity of insecticide, however, and occasionally remain attached even when dead. If this occurs, they should be left to fall off naturally unless you have been shown by a Veterinary Surgeon how to remove them without breaking off the embedded mouthparts.
