Seresto collars have been designed to protect your cat or dog from fleas & ticks for up to 8 months.
No need to remember monthly applications as Seresto collars provide long-lasting protection from fleas, ticks and other parasites.
Seresto works differently to other flea and tick collars as it contains unique materials that enables a safe and controlled dose of the active ingredients over an 8 month period. Providing long lasting protection by killing fleas and ticks, as well as repelling ticks before they have the chance to bite, which reduces the risk of your pet picking up diseases spread by these parasites.
Seresto collars have their active ingredients integrated into the polymer matrix. Over the period of 8 months, low doses of these ingredients are released through the matrix and absorbed through the fatty layer of the pet's skin and hair. The active ingredients are then distributed over the pet's entire body surface which offers long-lasting protection.
When using collars, safety is one of the first thing pet owners think about. Seresto has been rigorously tested to ensure that all ingredients used within the collars are not only safe for your pet, but also your family and the environment. The ingredients used within Seresto collars are specifically targeted at fleas, ticks and other parasites that could cause harm to your pet. All the ingredients are locked into the Seresto collar and released in very low doses over the period of 8 months and stored within the fatty layer on the skin and coat. Seresto collars are fully waterproof so do not need to be removed before swimming or bathing.
Seresto collars have been designed so they are easy to apply, giving your pet instant protection from fleas and ticks. Simply remove the Seresto collar from the laminated back that is contained within the tin and unroll the collar. Carefully wrap the collar around the cat or dog and push one end of the collar through the loop. Tighten the collar until two fingers fit between the collar and the pets neck. Be sure not to leave the collar too loose so it can be removed over the pets head. When the collar is fitted, carefully trim off any excess collar.
