Description

Seresto® for dogs kills and repels fleas and ticks for 8 months in an easy-to-use, odorless, non-greasy collar. With Bayer's innovative Sustained Release Technology, this revolutionary collar offers hassle-free, continuous protection from fleas and ticks.

seresto-8mnth

Seresto® is a unique polymer matrix collar that offers a continuous supply of two active ingredients: imidacloprid and flumethrin for effective 8-month protection against fleas and ticks. That's one convenient, non-greasy, odorless flea and tick collar instead of 8 monthly treatments.

The active ingredients are stored within the collar. They are released in low concentrations and are distributed over your dog's hair and skin surface. As active ingredients wear off over time, the Seresto® flea collar for dogs continuously replenishes the skin and hair coat with a new supply of active ingredients. In fact, fleas and ticks are killed through mere contact (No biting required).

Key Benefits

  • Long-Lasting: Repels and kills fleas and ticks for 8 months
  • Fast-Acting: Kills fleas on dogs within 24 hours
  • Quick-Tick Prevention: Prevents tick infestations within 48 hours
  • Multiple-Tick Protection: Repels and kills deer ticks, American dog ticks, brown dog ticks, and Lone Star ticks
  • Fast Flea Prevention: Existing fleas are killed within 2 hours and new fleas repelled before they lay eggs
  • Home-Protection: Seresto aids in control of flea larvae in the dog's surroundings following contact with a Seresto-treated dog
  • Continuous Protection: Bayer Polymer Matrix ensures that both active ingredients are continuously released in low concentrations
  • Enhanced Night Visibility: Comes with 3 light reflectors that easily clip on to the collar

seresto dog collar instructions

  1. Insert end of the collar through the buckle. Adjust the collar around the animal's neck without tightening it too tight or leaving it too loose.
  2. As a guide, it should be possible to only insert 2 fingers comfortably between the collar and the neck.
  3. Pull excess collar thru the loop(s). Collar length of greater that 1 inch (2 cm) beyond the loop(s) should be cut off unless it is on a growing puppy, where some additional length may be needed for adjustment as the animal grows.
  4. After application of the collar, three reflector clips may be fixed permanently to the collar to increase the animal's visibility in the dark. Take the clips out of the bag. The clips should be evenly distributed on the non-overlapping part of the collar. The clips are correctly applied when a clicking sound is heard. For safety reasons once the reflectors are fixed to the collar the clasp closes permanently and cannot be re-opened.


Video Example of Collar Application


The collar should be worn continuously for the 8 month protection period. Check periodically and adjust fit if necessary, especially when puppies are rapidly growing. Rarely, mild application site reactions may occur, such as scratching, redmess and hairloss, which usually recover within 1-2 weeks without the need for collar removal. In some cases, temporary collar removal and bathing may be recommended until symptoms have disappeared. In very rare cases, application site reactions, such as dermatitis, inflammation, eczema or lesions may occur. In these instances, immediately. If your animal is on medicaiton, consult your veterinarian before using this or any other product.This collar is designed with a release mechanism. In the unlikely event of a dog being trapped, the dog's own strength is sufficient to widen the collar to allow for quick release. Replace the collar after 8 months for optimal tick and flea protection.

It is a violation of federal Law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling. Do not contaminate feed or food.

Occasionally slight itching may be observed in animals that are not used to wearing collars in the first few days after fitting. ensure that the collar is not fitted too tightly. Slight hair loss and mild skin reactions due to the mechanical irritation of the collar may occur at the application site which usually recover within 1 or 2 weeks without the need for collar removal. For further guidance regarding individual animal sensitivities. In case of loss of collar, a new collar may be applied immediately. Do not attach a leash to the collar as this may cause breakage.

Storage Directions

Keep the collar in the bag and in the outer packaging until use. As with any pesticide product, do not allow small children to play with the collar or reflectors, or to put them into their mouths. Avoid contact with eyes, skin or clothing. Wash thoroughly with soap and cold water after fitting the collar. People with sensitivity reactions to the ingredients of the collar should avoid contact with the collar. Choking hazard. Contains small parts. Do not place collar or reflectors in mouth. Not intended for use on humans.

As with any product, consult your veterinarian before using this product on debilitated, aged, breeding, pregnant, or nursing animals. Individual sensitivities, while rare, may occur agter using ANY pesticide product for pets.

The Bayer Polymer Matrix System ensures that both active ingredients are slowly and continuously released in low concentrations from the collar towards the animal. This avoids peak concentrations and ensures that concentrations of both active ingredients are present in the dog's haircoat during the entire efficacy period. The active ingredients spread from the site of direct contact over the entire skin surface.

    I have debated for several months on either continuing with Nexguard or going with the Seresto Collar. I love the collar. Very simple, yet extremely worth it.
    ProsOne of the things that sold me on this product was price. Next was the fact that if my doggies were to get caught on something with the collar, their own strength can unlatch the collar. AWESOME safety measure in my book.

    These collars are fantastic I have 5 dogs and walk daily in the woods and now over 4 years and no tick or fleas. When they do get a tick they are slow and dying. Highly recommended as easy and last 8 full months.My dogs also swim with them on.

    seresto works all season

    I have been a Seresto tester & its approved by my 3 dogs. 2 years straight of camping, off in the woods, letting the dogs run in tall grass. They DON'T bring fleas home anymore. Although, you must take the collar off before getting wet. Very durable, on/off 25 times+ still holds tight. Love 'em.
    ProsDurable. Works good.
    ConsMedication can irritate sensitive people or pets. Dry powder on collar can be washed off..so if dog goes swimming with it on, it probably reduces the life of the collar. (I buy mine in March & leave it on thru the year).

    works but tingles
    June 7, 2014
    used this on our two small dogs for approximately two months now. no ticks to date. just prior to that we found several ticks on the dogs that "fell off" after eating, so there is definitely a difference. Right now I'm trying to investigate and make sure the collars don't have any side effects. I laid beside my dog this morning and had my had under his collar, and my hand is still tingling even after a couple of hours.

    bought this 2 weeks ago. had never had ticks in my entire life, but around easter found ticks. have tried everything short of total poisoning of my 2 little dogs. have zero fleas, but never did. as of today still have live active ticks. have sprayed, fumigated, dipped, double dosed with advantix. thought this collar might work. it came highly recommended. don't find it has worked on the ticks at all.

    Is this product harmful for people with skin contact such as petting our dog and her sleeping with us? She also takes an oral flea and tic medicine but occasionally still gets tics, as we live near woods. Thanks
