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 Seresto on my first dog and my current dog, and I didn't have to pull a tick off either of them. I check them pretty regularly and after the collar, I haven't seen any. My thinking is that they may still get ticks, but the medicine is effective and the ticks would rather bail than die from the sickness. Also, Seresto has never made my dogs sick either. My first dog got violently ill and had his liver permanently damaged when the vet gave him Advantix for a dog much larger than him. Dog tax!
Hi all! I have been a dedicated serestro collar customer, and have religiously bought every year for the last 5. This year was no different for me but the collars were. They are not working in the slightest. My poor chihuahuas are not getting any relief even after I have treated the beds, and gave them numerous baths with the collar. We don’t have carpet, so that helps environmentally. Very dissatisfied and disappointed this year, and would love a refund to be able to get something that will work for my girls.
Buddy is an gregarious, adorable, sweet, cuddly, squishy shih tzu who goes on walks everyday. He has playdates with his neighborhood dog friends. Occasionally we will walk on horse trails and he will ride his basket on the bike. He wears his seresto all the time. He tolerates it without any problems. He did not like the liquid flea & tick meds but this is odorless and not sticky. Works pretty well. The reflector attachments do nothing but that's okay, its inconsequential.
I have always been a fan of seresto collars,they used to work like magic. Now they do NOT work at all, I bought them in the end of thesummer last year and my dogs still kept fleas but I thought they started working but I think now it’s just because they died off because of the cooler weather. I just about them new collars in July and my dogs are COVERED in fleas. My lab mix has scratched his ear raw, both of my shitzu mixes have been scratching but my mostly white little girl is just covered. Bath after bath, which I remove the collars for baths and they just DO NOT work. Very disappointed with whatever changes Elanco changed because when BAYER had these collars they worked for over a year. I want my money back!
I've used this product in years past and had good results, which is why I decided to spend the money on it when I had a need for my new dog. We live in a wooded area and need ultra protection for our animals. Since receiving and placing the collar on my dog, there seems to be no difference. He is consistently itching, chewing and biting. It breaks my heart to see him so uncomfortable. I'd really like to receive a refund for this product so I can put the money towards something that will give my poor puppy some relief :(
There may be others I don’t know about but after wasting my money on 2 doses within a month of Advantage II and having no relief, I bought my two dogs the Seresto collars. I had to wait before it was safe to add more chemicals to their body, but fleas began to decline. It takes a little time but is fairly quick, about a week. By that time I noticed the dogs chewing themselves less and fleas were not biting me.
I have used Soresto collars on all of my dogs since the day I got them. My youngest dog is one years old and she’s 5 pounds. These collars are the best thing ever! I have five dogs and it gets very expensive and these collars work amazing! As far as making their neck read or anything like that that has never happened and I don’t tighten it to the point to where it’s too close to the skin. That is bound to happen if you put it too tight. Never had an issue with these and I’ve been a customer of SORESTO since 2018.
Fleas are bad this year. My dogs became infested. I tried a topical flea treatment and spray that did nothing to alleviate the problem. I decided to give these collars a try since they were more cost effective than chewables that would also require a prescription. After 12 hours and a bath with flea shampoo, we still had live fleas. After 24 hours, I could not find any live fleas.
Got this collar because i thought it would be the cheapest option that works. I’m not knocking it working for fleas because i didn’t get that far. I put this on my 10 lb chihuahua and within 3 hours the skin on her neck was red and raw. Thankfully we noticed the side effects early with my other chihuahua, who is 9 lbs, and his neck is healed now. There is scabbing where the collar was. Do not recommend, watch your pet closely if they are little guys.
i was so desperate to find a solution for my dogs fleas it had gotten so bad, there was a point were i didn’t want to lay in my own bed because i knew they were there as well, i didn’t know what to do and had tried basically everything, this really was my last resort. I had used flea collars before but got little to no results but in 4 days my dog and cat (bought a separate cat collar) didn’t have a single flea on them!!! during the process it seemed like fleas were everywhere though its seems like there were trying to escape my pets and ended up everywhere but I’m writing this review 5 days later and can tell you i haven’t seen an alive flea in 2 days!!!
