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!

  • 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.

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.

  • Working great so far!

    By on

    Glad that I found out about these collars. I have two cats and thought this would be easier than using the topicals. One of my cats has dense thick fur and he has had no problem with the collar. He's the one that likes to play outside, so I did use all three reflectors on his. My other cat has thinner, medium length hair and she started to develop an wound in one area. I was super worried, but then realized that it was because of the single reflector that I attached to her collar. I removed the reflector and the area began to heal and she hasn't had any problem since then. These collars are doing their job. I haven't found any ticks on my outdoor cat and they seem to be free of fleas as well. Glad that I found out about these collars.

  • Why didn't I buy it sooner?

    By on

    We have seven cats and always struggled with fleas on them. I vacuum and clean their sleeping spots once a week, use a flea comb daily and one of them is always infested with fleas. All the other cats, even the two that are inside/outside have between 1 - 5 fleas, but Barney always hit the jackpot. One day I brushed about 30 fleas out of his fur. All the topicals worked little to almost none. I heard about Seresto and just thought to give it a try. Two days after I put it on he was flea free, not even showing of eggs. I am so impressed that I am totally convinced as of right now. He only got it on since 10 days and just hope it'll make it at least 5 months.

  • A Real Ladies Man Now

    By on

    So we have been trying to socialize Oscar in to the new neighborhood we moved into to make kitty friends (Oscar is a 2 years old domestic short haired indoor/outdoor cat) and by doing so, we have noticed he was getting more fleas that seemed to be cramping his style. So we searched the interwebs and low and behold, we found the perfect bling bling for Oscar to strut around in when in the 'hood making friends! Now Oscar is a real ladies man with his new flashy flea collar bling and completely flea free!

  • Best flea collar/prevention

    By on

    I have problems with fleas every summer. I have 1 dog and 3 cats- my dog comes in and out and so do 2 of my cats. I have a long-haired cat that stays in all the time. When summer comes, I find myself flea infested and I have to vacuum everyday to manage this horrendous problem since I can't spray due to my home having hardwood floors throughout. However, ever since my mother gave me a flea collar for my dog, I was hooked. Now, every year, I buy these collars for each animal except one cat and the fleas are gone. I used to comb my long-haired cat with a flea comb daily and I'd find tons of fleas. Now, there are none!! It's amazing! I will continue to use these as my flea prevention.

  • Seresto flea/tick collars for dogs & cats

    By on

    I had been using Frontline Plus for my animals for several years (currently have 12 rescue fur babies) and for the past couple of years, it didn't seem to work anymore, I kept seeing fleas! So, with the advisement of my veterinarian, I started using these collars. I must say, I was concerned after reading mixed reviews, but after researching the product, the positive greatly outweighed the negative. So far, No more fleas!!! Best flea/tick treatment I've tried, and I have tried many!

  • Flea-free within a day

    By on

    Great product. My cats were flea-free within the day. My cats aren't used to collars, so they've been scratching at them, but I haven't seen them scratch any other area since applying the collars 2 weeks ago. My only complaint is that the collars loosen too easily. It's nice to know my cats won't get stuck on anything, but the cats can loosen the collars simply by scratching or getting their claws caught. So, I have to tighten the collars almost daily. The collars are also a bit pricey, but definitely worth the money.

  • Amazing Product

    By on

    My cat is an indoor/outdoor cat. Before I got the seresto collar, she would have ticks everywhere and I didn't like that for her heath as well as the fear of the ticks falling off in our home. I bout the Seresto collar and was pleasantly surprised. She has been wearing it for about 2 months now and I haven't found a single tick or flea on her! At first she scratched at the collar but I think it's because she just wasn't used to it, it doesn't bother her now. I like the fact that there are reflectors on it incase she is out at night.

  • The only product that works this year

    By on

    Frontline and Advantix both failed for my little dog this year and before we realized this, fleas had spread from her to five indoor cats. We finally got Seresto collars for everyone and within eight days there were no live fleas left on any of the pets. We were afraid the cats might fight the collars as they were not used to anything around their necks but there was no problem.

  • Fantastic !

    By on

    I put the collar on Cop (he's black and white like a cop car). He almost immediately stopped scratching. Within a few days all fleas were gone. He doesn't mind it. I should not have cut it as short as I did. I should have waited a couple of days. It really works. Now I will have to see if it lasts the 8 months that their say it does. Financially it makes sense. Good deal !

  • Wonderful product

    By on

    My male cat is indoor outdoor and he brought in fleas to the female cat who never goes out; other flea killers never worked and did not kill ticks. The others left a greasy coat as well. I applied the collar two weeks ago, his coat is getting its shine back, his scratching is beginning to become extinct, fleas are not jumping from the carpet. Easy to put on, was at my house in no time, great price, and I don't have to deal with it for 8 whole months!
