What is Seresto? 

Seresto is an effective, reliable alternative to monthly flea and tick topicals that lasts for 8 months. Seresto is a flea and tick collar for dogs and cats that uses exciting, innovative technology to release the active ingredients in controlled doses over an extended period of time. This means effective long-term flea and tick control without the inconvenience of monthly applications. Seresto protects your pet from fleas, flea eggs, flea larvae and ticks for eight months. It is available in three formulation, small dogs, large dogs, and cats. It is non-greasy and odorless.

Not available in Puerto Rico or Canada.

 

Find Seresto for cats and dogs at 1-800-PetMeds
For:
Dogs (7 weeks of age or older)
Cats (10 weeks of age or older)
 
Benefits:
Begins working immediately after the collar is applied
Provides effective flea and tick control for eight months
Kills fleas before they can lay eggs
Prevents ticks infestations within 48 hours after application
Water-resistant and will continue to work even if wet or dirty
Odor-free compared to older-generation flea and tick collars
Safety release mechanism prevents strangulation if the collar becomes caught or tangled
Safe if chewed on by your dog or cat

How it works:

The flea and tick collar releases the two active ingredients in low doses over an extended period of time. The ingredients are then absorbed through the fatty layer of your pet's skin and distributed throughout your pet's body to protect against fleas and ticks for eight months. Seresto can be worn alongside your pet's regular collar.

No matter if you have a cat or a dog, the collars come with a rachet release mechanism that releases when your pet is under pressure, which enables your pet to free himself or herself. It also has a pre-determined breaking point if your pet's head and neck get trapped, which allows your pet's strength to break the collar and get out of a sticky situation.

Cautions:
The collar should not be used on puppies younger than seven weeks old or on kittens younger than ten weeks old. If ticks are present on your pet when the collar is applied, they will not die within the first forty-eight hours and should be removed manually. If your dog or cat shows any sign of skin irritation or other reaction to the collar, remove immediately and consult your veterinarian.

    Works well with my dogs Have had no problems since I purchased Seresto with my 2 Standard Poodles - the only comment I would make that if your dog is very active sometimes the collar comes off -maybe a more secure latch. 08/18/2013
    Seresto I purchased 11 Seresto collars for all my pets and absolutely love them. They have done a miracle on keeping fleas and ticks from my pets and we live in the country. It is definitely worth the money! 08/17/2013
    Love it!!!!!!!!!!! It's been almost 3 months since I've been using this product, so far no ticks or fleas. I love this, tried everything else and it just didn't work. This is working. Will keep buying this product. 08/17/2013
    No ticks! This product definitely works! I was pulling six ticks a day off my 2 dogs, and now they are dead before they can latch on. Due to the mild winter and bugs being really bad, this is the first time i had to buy a tick preventative product. I will probably continue to buy this, even though up front it seems expensive, if you add up the other stuff for 8 months, this is actually a really good deal. My only down side, is that it kind of gets in the way of their real collars, so i actually took those off and only put them back on when we go to the park. It would be neat, since these have to be sort of snug, if they made them to actually connect to the inside of their real collars, that way it wouldn't get in the way of the primary collar, rather, it would seamlessly be a part of it, and, probably more properly used since the main collar would be pushing it into the hair/skin even more. That's for the suggestion box, ha! 08/16/2013
    So far so good! We have been using this product on our dogs now for about a month. We live in an are where fleas have been extraordinarily bad this year. Since using the collars, we only see an occasional flea or two on the dogs and I think they have just hopped on and will soon be dead. Have yet to see any ticks. We are very pleased. Still need to see how long the collar will work. Overall quite pleased. 08/16/2013
    I love this new collar! The Seresto collar I purchased for my cat, Marilyn, is wonderful! Ticks in our area have been very bad this summer, but since Marilyn started wearing her new collar three months ago, she has only had one tick! At age 14, she had never before worn a collar, but she hasn't minded it at all. I am grateful to my veterinarian for recommending Seresto! 08/16/2013
    Good product- no fuss, no muss I bought Seresto for my small dog. I was reluctant about using a collar at first, but it was easy to use. I simply followed the directions enclosed for activating it and placed it arond Oliver's neck. I snipped off the excess end and he has been wearing it since. We have had a very wet, humid summer and no fleas or ticks, even though Oliver loves to run up under the bushes and shrubs to "do his business". I do plan to buy this again. 08/16/2013
    This product has worked great for us. I don't want to jinx myself, but this product has worked great this summer for our 2 dogs. I have not found 1 flea! We started the collars back in the spring and so far so good! I also like the convenience of not having to worry about re-applying a flea/tick product every month. I'm so glad I tried this product. 08/16/2013
    It is OK At the being I was disappointed with product, but now it as been two months and it is working just fine, 08/16/2013
    Trying the Seresto collar We spend a lot of time at the beach in New Jersey. As such our 12 yr old pup is in areas that are posted with "Tick Infested Area" signs. We purchased the Sersto collar in May. Since that time, we have only found 2 ticks on her, and both had not yet attached. Overall we think the collar works well. Since our dog swims a lot, we think the potency might be reduced somewhat because of the water. Not sure we will be able to use it the for the 8 months stated in the product literature, but so far so good. Hal 08/16/2013
    still found a swollen tick near neck After having the collar on my dog for one and a half months I found a swollen tick near his neck. Wondering if this should happen. 08/15/2013
    Seems to work. Put this on the dog 3 months ago. Seems to be working as advertised. Even though the initial cost seemed high, if it continues to work for the total 8 months it is actually cheaper then the other products. Also you do not have to apply it every month like other products, so you do not have to remind yourself every month. This has been a bad season for fleas here,and as I said so far its working good, no fleas. If it works for 8 months, great. 08/14/2013
    You put it on once and forget about it! I put the Seresto Flea collar on four of my dachshunds and so far I have not seen a single flea and my dogs have not had any reaction to the collars. I was nervous to put the collar on one of the dogs because she has seizuers and alot of things can set her off but I finally put it on her and she has been fine. I like the collars because you put them on once and forget about it, no more worrying every month to put on the old type of flea protection and no mess. I will be using these again next year. 08/14/2013
    Easy Product to use Seresto was recommended by my Veternarian-I try to follow her directions-I have 7 dogs and want the best health care I can provide. So far the collars are working and as I understand it this is a bad year for ticks. 08/14/2013
    Love, love, love this product!! I couldn't wait to receive this product for my dog and cat after I saw the commercial. The collars are not bulky and both animals adjusted really well to them. No harsh smells or icky residue. I love the fact that they work for 8 months without pesky single month applications. I will definitely be purchasing this product again! 08/14/2013
    The product does not live up to its claims I am very disappointed in how well the flea collars have performed. I have two cocker spaniels with Seresto collars that were applied in mid-April. The product claims state it will keep fleas off my dogs for up to 5 months. I had the backyard where they go for activities treated before applying the collars. Both of my dogs are covered in fleas and there was no relief. They are miserable and I have done everything possible to stop the continuous fleas in my home and my yard. I sure was hoping that this product would complete the task but it failed. Thank you for trying but it is not good. 08/14/2013
    No sign of fleas etc. since using the collar for months Since purchasing and applying the collar to my seventy pound, mixed breed dog, I have seen no sign of fleas, etc. on her. Seresto is such an easy way to protect against such a problem; put it on and forget about it even to the point of letting Bayer inform me of when it's time to replace it. This is the ultimate solution for my pet. 08/14/2013
    Haven't seen a flea yet! I have three dogs, all wear the collars. No troubles with it at all. 08/13/2013
    Terrible I put the collar on my two dachshunds about a month ago. I just found 5 ticks on one of them today. This product does not work for ticks at all. Very disappointed for all of the money that I spent. 08/13/2013
    Effective Product I have 2 small dogs who have been wearing this collar all summer. Living in the South, we have an excess of parasites. No pests have bothered my critters. I trusted this brand name and it paid off. 08/13/2013
    great product my little dog has had it on for about 4 months . she runs outside where there are a lots of deer ticks .she has not had a flea or tick on her . 08/12/2013
    Still found lilve ticks on pets After 8 weeks of both of our dogs wearing their collars we still found live ticks on the dogs. The package insert says it may take up to 8 weeks to be effective. Its been months and we still have to take ticks off of them. 08/12/2013
    Great Product I put the Seresto on 3 Great Pyrenees dogs around 2 months ago. The collar has done the job on ticks and fleas even when the male dog decides he needs a dip in the pond. We have lost dogs due to tick problems in the past. We have check all three dogs over the last 2 months for ticks and fleas and at this time have none on any of the dogs who stay out on the farm of around 40 acres with goats. 08/12/2013
    Not Impressed Living in Oklahoma, we have a tick problem that is HUGE!!! We have to use topicals in conjunction with Collars. I used to use the Preventic Collar, but saw the ads on tv. I asked people in the industry and was told it was the newest collar on the market, but was priced high. However, they told me I would get 8 months with this collar. Well, for the first two months it worked great....no ticks!! Now, we're at month three and I just picked 12 ticks off my dog, engorged, embedded. I am not impressed with this product!! It didn't last more than 2 months!! And for the money I paid, I'm going back to the Preventic Collar!! May be a great collar if you live in the city and hardly ever see a tick. But for those of us in rural America, it doesn't have the efficacy as advertised. Thoroughly disappointed!! 08/12/2013
    This product is easy to use. The convenience of this product is great in that for 8 months do not have to worry that I will forget an application. Found a few ticks on one of my cats during the first month, but so far I believe it is working quite well. 08/12/2013
    This product seems to be performing as advertised My pet is being protected from fleas and ticks from what I've noticed. 08/12/2013
    the collar is very convenient I REALLY LIKED THE CONVENIENCE OF THE COLLAR, PUT IT ONE AND DONE. MY DOG HAD NO BAD REACTIONS FROM THE COLLAR . I HAVE NOT SEEN A TICK OR FLEA ON MY DOG. I WOULD DEFININTELY BUY ANOTHER COLLAR WHEN IT'S TIME. 08/12/2013
    Love it We've had it on our collie about 4 months now and still haven't spotted a flea or tick on him. 08/11/2013
    Great Product We purchased this product for our three dogs, two Huskies and a Black Lab. So far we are very pleased with the product. I like this product much more than the topical gel which is hard to apply to a dog with a thick coat. 08/11/2013
    Did not work for my dog Duke is a farm work dog with goats. He is in the woods and pasture. He still had several ticks and fleas. I was really hoping this would work because it would be so much easier. Duke has a very thick coat so this may be part of the problem. I do know of cases were it did work but it was a house dog with short hair. 08/11/2013

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question. The large collar would be a better fit for your furry pal. When you place the collar on her neck, you will adjust it to the correct size and cut off the excess.
