Within about an hour our Cairn Terrier/Border Terrier X was panting and unwell. Of course we took the collar off straight away. Is there any other type of tick/flea collar we could use?

You need to use the flea stuff from the vets. The stuff you get in supermarkets does not work.

It's often cheaper to pay for a repeat prescription from the vets and buy the flea and worm stuff online.

DON'T use any supermarket flea treatment or worm treatment for your pet, ever. PLEASE. (And I very rarely beg!).

The chemicals in them are often old (as in old formulations of chemicals, rather than the newer chemicals on the market) and are toxic. "Hartz" in the USA is the equivalent of "Bob Martin" in the UK.

Hartz kills Will tell you all you need to know about Hartz and it can be applied to Bob Martin.

As an example, even the regular dose of Hartz or Bob Martin can kill your pet.

Please use Frontline or Stronghold for Fleas & Ticks (from the vet).
