Seresto brings the flea collar into the 21st Century
Most busy pet parents are always on the lookout for ways to make pet care more efficient and affordable. Finding an innovative new product can save you time and money while helping to make your pet even healthier and happier. As advancements came along in flea and tick prevention, such as topical and oral flea preventatives, it became easier to help keep your pet protected against the discomfort and diseases fleas and ticks bring. However, topical flea and tick protection can be smelly, oily and bothersome to your pet. Chewable flea preventatives can be a good option, but what if your dog or cat refuses to eat it? Keeping up with that monthly dose can also be difficult to remember. For those seeking a long-lasting solution for flea and tick protection, the Seresto collar could be the perfect fit.
Longer lasting flea & tick protection with Seresto
The Seresto collar makes it easier and safer than ever to protect your pet against all life stages of fleas including flea eggs and larvae, as well as ticks that carry disease-causing organisms. Unlike flea collars of the past, this innovative technology both kills and repels fleas and ticks for 8 consecutive months! Even better, Seresto for dogs also protects against sarcoptic mange, a highly contagious condition.
Seresto – not the same old flea collar
With the development of Seresto, all of the drawbacks of older generation flea collars are a thing of the past. Seresto is odor-free, non-greasy and completely safe if chewed on by your dog or cat. It’s even water resistant and will continue to work if the collar gets wet or dirty.
For added safety, there is a built-in light reflecting band for better visibility at night. There is also a safety release mechanism to help prevent accidental strangulation should the collar become caught or ensnared.
The synergistic power of Seresto
Two active ingredients, Flumethrin and Imidacloprid, are released from the collar in low doses over an extended period to keep your pet protected continuously. These ingredients work together to synergistically increase effectiveness and begin killing existing fleas within 24 hours and prevent tick infestations within 48 hours after application.
As you fasten the collar around your pet’s neck, this powerful pest-fighting combination is released through body heat and friction, distributing the powerful active ingredients on the outer surface of your pet’s skin and coat. The special sustained release technology adjusts to allow migration of just the right amount depending upon the concentration of the ingredients within the lipid layer of your pet’s skin.
Does Seresto require a prescription?
Seresto is available without a prescription from your veterinarian, so it is a great alternative for immediate flea and tick protection. It can be used on dogs older than 7 weeks and cats over 10 weeks of age. The Seresto collar is available in three varieties, one for cats of all weights, one for small dogs up to 18 lbs and another for large dogs 18 pounds and over.
