Fleas rise to the top of your pet's coat as they die, so consider it a triumph if you start seeing more fleas at first, after treating your pet. If you’re still seeing fleas after application, it may be because your pet has picked up new fleas from the environment, which may include other pets, surfaces and outdoor areas. It may take up to 30 days to break the entire flea life cycle. Additionally, you should also treat sources of new fleas (i.e., carpet, yard, etc.) to ensure complete flea control.
I used to take my cats on walks around our yard to get their energy out. As they got older, we stopped so it wasn't necessary to take them out so I hadn't worried about fleas/needs these collars for a while. Recently, we were adopted by a semi feral cat that has decided he likes to come indoors. I noticed a couple fleas on him despite his regular treatment and decided we would go back to this collar as I never had issues with it before. He hasn't even had it on a month and I found a couple more fleas on him - and as its been cold out, he rarely even goes outside.
I have two indoor cats, but we live in apartments and fleas were getting in from neighboring units. I tried literally every single flea treatment under the sun, and within a couple weeks, they always came back. My vet suggested looking into Seresto collars, and I was very hesitant about a collar helping - especially when I saw the price tag... But I decided to give it a go anyway, and I'm SO HAPPY that I did! I put their first Seresto collars on about 2 years ago, and I have never seen another flea since then. They are the only thing that truly work! The initial investment seems expensive, but when you do the math ($63 divided by 8 months of use, you're only paying $7.87 a month for the best flea preventative on the market) Couldn't recommend Seresto collars enough!
There is no flea treatment compared to these collars, it is certainly worth coughing up the money for if you never want to see fleas again. I have been consistently shampooing and combing my cats only to see fleas dwindling, but not disappearing. About 4-6 fleas would come off each of my cats with the first few comb-throughs each day. I put these collars on my two cats last night, and fleas were jumping off within the hour. By today, I’ve combed them both thoroughly, and only found a single, half-dead flea between the two of them. It’s exciting to see my kitties feeling more comfortable. They’ve had an itchy couple of months, I’m so happy they can finally find relief. Thank you, Seresto!
Received 2 collars at the end of October. I vacuum and wash blankets regularly in my house. We have been having a flea problem so I was hopeful these would help, but this time they did not seem to do much after the first few weeks. Starting around Thanksgiving, I noticed my cats were scratching more frequently and had flea dirt in their fur. I started flea combing them and found a few fleas, which I killed. Every week I flea comb them and find more fleas on them which means these collars are not working. One of my cats leaves flea dirt wherever he lays at this point which means this product is not working. The claim of 8 months is nowhere near true when it lasted less than a month for both of my cats. Was hopeful that this would resolve the flea problems, but it hasn't, which has left me quite disappointed. :(
Definitely recommend, had fleas on my cats for about two months and tried removing them with baths, flea combing, and flea killing spray but none of them worked. Put this collar on and within a week there have been zero fleas found in there fur. Make sure to clean the house after putting the collar on because a lot of the fleas jump off the pet and look for a new host. This is a perfect time to vacuum and wash all bedding/clothes.
Just wanted to share my experience. I had a friend come to my house in the beginning of 2022. I knew she had fleas and had sprayed my house with flea spray. My cats had seresto collar on. But as of today 1/6/2023 I am still fighting with the fleas. I've flea bombed my apartment 5 times in this time frame. I'm contently doing laundry and spraying flea killer. If anyone has advice i'll be happy to take it.
This collar really works on my cat except she got it in her mouth and my son saw her and cut the collar so I have to order another one. My fault. She got away from me when I put it on so I let her go thinking it was tight enough but it wasn't. I would not use anything else. It does the job and no side effects.
I normally use the prescription flea tick liquid on back each month buty cats really hated it. I decided to try these and just use a de-wormer on them every so often. These have worked out well. My male cat loves to go out and he used to even go in woods and didn't bring back a flea or tick. So I recommend these. They have worked well for us
I am so glad I decided to take the money curve ball buying 4 of these collar for my babies cause there finally all back to there normal selves. I was able to see the fleas dying off of them. thank you so much Megan k. for seeing my previous review of catego and refunding me to help with the cost of these cuz it was totally worth it. there so much happier, bubs and muffin finally have there hair growing back where they had there little bald patches. I'm just back to being a happy cat mom and not feeling like a bad one. thank you again chewy for easy access to these products and amazing customer service
I read countless of these reviews and I became nervous to see some reviews mentioning cats experiencing rashes and hair loss. It made me extremely nervous.... we want the best for our fur babies. I tried every natural remedy and still no luck. I ordered this collar, and when I used this product for my cat, he was a kitten so I felt extra cautious. He caught fleas as a kitten 2 summers ago, and they were everywhere! But this collar absolutely did the trick and the fleas went away and never came back! 10/10. He never caught a rash or had any issues with this product either.
