Seresto Flea Collar for Dogs

All dogs need flea protection and a Seresto flea collar for dogs protects them against fleas for 8 months. It’s comfortable and easy to use.

Why you need a Flea Collar

Fleas are parasites that can hang on to your dogs fur and suck from their blood supply. This is uncomfortable and itchy for your dog, and if the infestation is severe it can lead to skin infections and more severe conditions. If your dog has fleas on him and then goes into your house they can live on soft furnishings such as your carpets and sofas. They can also bite humans. In short, you don’t want them on your pets or in your house. A Seresto flea collar for dogs can help to keep fleas away.

Introducing the Seresto Flea Collar

Also Effective against other Parasites

In addition to working against external parasites, the collar is also effective against ticks as well as chewing lice. The active ingredient is Imidacloprid which is very safe around dogs and cats but can be lethal to certain mammals such as rabbits, squirrels and other small animals.

Effective Flea Treatment

Seresto has been proven to kill 100% of fleas within 12 hours of use and Lures ticks for up to 4 weeks. It also breaks the reproduction cycle which leads to faster results in regards to reducing the number of flea infestations on dogs. Like all products, it is important to read the manufacturer’s instructions and make sure you’re using Seresto correctly for optimal effectiveness.

8 Months of Protection

It is important to note that the 8 months of protection provided by the collar are based on dogs who spend most of their time outside in an area where ticks are prevalent. During this period, there will be no need to use additional flea or tick prevention products with Seresto.

**UPDATE: A new formula has been released in 2011 which claims to offer 12 months of protection instead of 8. This is due to a change in the active ingredient (now Imidacloprid + Moxidectin).

Alternatives to Seresto

Some pet owners prefer to give them tablets for flea and tick control such as Simparica for dogs. We prefer to use a spot on such as Frontline for our rescue Patterdale.

FRONTLINE Spot On Flea & Tick...
  • KILLS FLEAS - Fleas jumping onto your treated dog are killed within 24 hours, preventing infestations from building up
  • KILLS TICKS - Ticks latching onto your treated dog are killed within 48 hours, helping to reduce the risk of disease transmission
  • TRIED AND TRUSTED - FRONTLINE's original vet-strength formula has an exemplary safety profile and can be used on puppies weighing more than 2 kg, from 8 weeks of age

When tablets such as Simparica or spot on such as Frontline are used regularly according to the instructions there is no need for dogs to wear a flea collar as well.
