Description

With its innovative delivery system, the Seresto Flea & Tick Collar for Cats & Kittens offers a breakthrough in flea and tick protection for cats for 8 months. Inside the unique polymer matrix of the Seresto collar are two active ingredients: imidacloprid, which has been used in products recommended by veterinarians for years to control flea infestations, and flumethrin, which effectively repels and kills ticks, larvae and nymphs. These ingredients work together in this unique flea collar to provide dual action against fleas and ticks like no other treatment!

Key Benefits

  • The innovative, Sustained Release Technology in each easy-to-apply, non-greasy collar provides 8 months of effective protection.
  • It’s a convenient way to kill fleas and ticks, and to help you take care of your cat.
  • Works through contact, killing fleas that can cause painful bites.
  • Application is easy. Takes minutes to adjust on your cat, and provides treatment that is long lasting against fleas and ticks.
  • Features a breakaway feature to added safety.

Instructions

Use only one collar per animal. Fit collar around your pet's neck, allowing for 2 fingers to fit between the collar and your pet's neck to ensure a comfortable, yet snug, fit. Once collar is properly fitted, cut off any excess collar measuring 1" or longer. 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. Keep the collar in the bag and in the outer packaging until use. Replace the collar after 8 months for optimal tick and flea protection.

Water Resistance: It is unnecessary to remove the collar before immersing your pet in water. Seresto remains effective following a shampoo treatment, swimming or exposure to rain or sunlight. In order to maintain an 8 month duration, pets must not be bathed more than once a month. For pets that swim once a month or more, the control duration is reduced to five months for fleas and seven months for ticks.

Frequently Asked Questions

I have never had a flea problem before. Where are my pets picking up fleas?

Fleas are very hardy pests that are quite capable of hitching rides on a variety of mammals. Wild animals or feral pets traveling through the environment may be a source for a pet’s exposure.

Fleas may be brought to the house by:

  • You – attached to clothing, luggage, dog blankets, etc.
  • Your pet – any time your pet steps outside your house, they are potentially exposed to fleas, especially in areas where there are other animals.
  • Stray or homeless cats and dogs – since these animals are not being cared for, they are easy targets for fleas. A single feral cat walking through your back yard even just one time may drop many flea eggs into the grass or under shrubs.
  • Wildlife – particularly raccoons and opossums. These animals typically aren’t seen very often, because they are active at night. A single opossum can carry as many as 1,000 adult fleas! An opossum walking through your back yard even just one time can drop many flea eggs into the grass or under shrubs as they pass through.
  • Non-treated pets in the household – most dogs are treated for fleas and ticks. Often, the cats in the household are not, especially if they are indoor only cats.
  • Non-treated pets in the neighborhood – you may be vigilant about treating your pets for fleas, but your neighbor(s) may not.

What are the benefits of Seresto?

With its innovative delivery system, Seresto offers a breakthrough in flea and tick protection for dogs or cats for eight months.

Features and benefits:

  • For dogs or cats
  • Kills fleas
  • Repels and kills ticks. If a tick is repelled, it cannot attach and transmit disease-causing organisms
  • Non-greasy, odorless, easy-to-use

How does Seresto work?

Inside the unique polymer matrix of Seresto are two active ingredients:

  • Imidacloprid has been used in products for years to control flea infestations.
  • Flumethrin effectively repels and kills ticks.

Flumethrin works together with imidacloprid to provide dual action against fleas and ticks. No other treatment has this combination of ingredients.

The active ingredients spread from the site of direct contact over the skin surface of the cat or dog.

Sustained release technology

Seresto works similarly to a monthly topical, but as the active ingredients wear off over time, a new supply is continuously replenished in low concentrations. The active ingredients spread from the site of direct contact over the skin surface.

Bayer's polymer matrix technology is designed to slowly and continuously release the active ingredients for eight months, a duration that makes it clearly different from other flea and tick collars.

What if my cat or small dog gets stuck while wearing a Seresto collar?

Because some pet owners may be concerned that a cat or small dog could get stuck while wearing a collar, Seresto is designed with a safety release mechanism. In the unlikely event of the cat being trapped, the cat's own strength is sufficient to widen the collar to allow for quick release.

A hard pull causes the ratchet-release mechanism to allow a widening of the collar.

The small dog and cat collars are equipped with a predetermined breaking point. A harder pull triggers the breaking of the collar at this point.

If your cat is not used to collars

Rarely, mild application site reactions may occur such as scratching, redness and hair loss, which usually recover within 1 to 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, collar removal is recommended. If signs persist or become more severe, consult a veterinarian immediately.

What is the expiration date for Seresto for cats?

There is no expiration date required on the packaging by the EPA for this product. The product should be kept in its original packaging and stored as directed on the label.

How do I store and dispose of Seresto?

Do not contaminate water, food or feed by storage or disposal.

  • Storage: Store in original unopened container in a cool, dry place that is inaccessible to children.
  • Disposal: Dispose of container, pouch and expired collar in trash.

    We have two cats, both are inside/outside. In the spring and summer they are constantly outside and will come in only to sleep and eat. We also have two small dogs. Neither of the cats had any reaction to the collar, maybe a little itching, nothing extreme, where the collar sits loose. There hasn't been any fleas or flea dirt on any four of the animals. Another plus is that giving them baths you are able to get the collar a little wet. For us, the collars have lasted about six months before the cats start scratching at them more, but again no skin irritation. No ticks or fleas have been transmitted to any of the animals and the dogs don't have any medicine for fleas and ticks. I'd highly recommend We have two cats, both are inside/outside.

  • Tick free outdoor loving cat!

    By on

    Repels, repels, repels! Hallelujah! I have an outdoor loving cat that comes inside to eat and sleep. I always used frontl__+ which kills the buggers but darn i would be still be picking ticks off him that haven't had a chance to latch on yet. So I thought I would try this collar because it repels fleas and ticks and also kills them. Haven't seen a tick or flea on the cat since. My kitty is adventurous outside and so far he hasn't lost the collar. I'm so thrilled that I am also buying collars for my two dogs

  • It's worth every penny.

    I was concerned about my cat trying to pull the collar off. We have been having some issues trying other products as the fleas never fully died or the eggs didn't so my three year old kitty had a raw neck from scratching. The collar was easy to put on and my kitty did scratch at it but I made sure it was two fingers loose. She scratched at it the first couple of days and then a miracle happened and my kitty realized it too. The fleas were dead. Not only did the fleas on her body die but we covered a pillow she likes to sleep on with an old towel and it was full of fleas. All of the fleas on the towel and the pillow were dead after two days. My kitty was so happy, her demeanor changed and she I was concerned about my cat trying to pull the collar off.

She still tries to pull on it but I just tighten it a little and it's all good. It doesn't seem to bother her much and there is NO FLEAS. They claim it will work for eight months but if it only worked for two months, it would be worth the money. I highly recommend it. In addition, I've purchase several items from Chewy and they always arrive at my home in a couple of days, damage free and fast delivery. I will be purchasing much more from this company in the future. … more

  • Not good this time

    By on

    This is the third time I bought this collar. However, it didn't work as before. I have noticed my cats scratching often and a couple of fleas bit me. I don't know if the fleas are now resistant to the active ingredient of the collar or if collars were defective. I am somewhat disappointed because I thought I finally found the best anti-flea product and now I have to start over again.

  • So Far So Good

    By on

    My cat came in with two ticks on him a few weeks ago so I decided to try the Seresto collar. I have three cats and despite regular flea/tick treatment they regularly came in with ticks. I've seen no ticks since putting the collars on them. Yay!!! They've tolerated the collars well-even my 13-year old cat. :)

  • great for elimination of fleas

    By on

    I have used this product before so knew it worked. I have 3 indoor cats who NEVER go outside; however, I must have been bringing fleas into the house because I would forever be finding fleas, especially on the youngest/smallest one. Every day I would use a flea comb and find a lot on him. So back to Soresto! I have very happy with this product and the fact it lasts 8 months is a huge money saving deal.

  • Instant relief

    By on

    I noticed my cats scratching after a liquid application of flea and tick treatment. Upon a recommendation by the veterinarian to use this product I was a little hesitant due to the cost. We purchased these collars and they arrived the next day. Within hours they stopped inching. Time will tell so far so good.

  • Gone too soon

    By on

    I can't speak to effectiveness yet, it's really too soon...for one. I ordered two collars for our cats. I do know that one of them is not being effective, because it was gone in 2 days. I have searched the yard and cannot locate it. I'm glad that if he was caught it broke away instead of strangling him. However, $55 for two days and now he has no protection. No way would I just order him another. Now I need to figure out some kind of drops for him. :-( As long as the other cat's proves to be effective, I would order again for her.

  • Itching be gone

    By on

    My cat has gone from figeting to lying on her back purring with happiness. Can only think is due to the collar and no more itching. She went from the "liquid" flea fighter medication that used to work over the years, but seems to not have been working this last year!

  • Amazing product

    By on

    I love this product. So much better and cheaper than the monthly flea pills. Love that this takes care of both fleas and ticks. My cat has never worn a collar before so he is still getting used to it. I also use soresto for my 2 small dogs. Havent seen a flea or tick since first use!
