Inside the unique polymer matrix of Seresto™ are two active ingredients:
Flumethrin works together with imidacloprid to provide dual action against fleas and ticks. No other treatment has this combination of ingredients [FIG. 1].
The active ingredients spread from the site of direct contact [FIG. 2] over the skin surface of the cat or dog [FIG. 3 & 4].
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 over eight months, a duration that makes it clearly different from other collars.
Learn about its sustained release technology.
The active ingredients of Seresto™ are contained within the Bayer Polymer Matrix, making it water-resistant. Therefore it is unecessary to remove the collar before the pet is immersed in water. Seresto™ remains effective following a shampoo treatment, swimming, or after exposure to rain or sunlight. Under normal conditions, effectiveness lasts for eight months. In order to maintain an 8-month duration, dogs must not be bathed more than once per month. For dogs that swim once a month or more, the control duration is reduced to five months.
Flea bites can cause flea allergy dermatitis (FAD), an allergic reaction that can lead to constant scratching, severe itching and hair loss.
Ingestion of an infected flea can transmit tapeworms, one of the most common intestinal parasites seen by owners.
Sick and older animals can become anemic when infested with fleas. Heavy flea infestations can even cause death.
You or your dog can bring fleas home to infest your cat without you realizing it. This, plus any outside exposure can put a cat at risk for fleas.
Monthly flea and tick treatments can be time-consuming to apply. Plus, remembering to apply them monthly can be a hassle. Seresto™ takes just minutes to adjust on your dog or cat, and provides treatment that lasts eight months against fleas and ticks.
Seresto™ kills fleas within 24 hours and kills ticks within 48 hours of initial application.
1. Remove collar from protective bag immediately prior to use.
2. Unroll collar and make sure that there are no remnants from the plastic connectors inside the collar.
3. Insert end of the collar through the buckle. Adjust the collar around the dog or cat’s neck without tightening it too tight (as a guide, it should be possible to insert two fingers between the collar and the neck).
4. Pull excess collar through the loop(s) and cut off any excess length extending 1 inch (2 cm) beyond the loop(s).
5. Seresto™ comes with three optional reflector clips that can be attached to the collar to help keep your dog visible at night. The reflector clips should be evenly distributed on the non-overlapping part of the collar.
You should only be able to fit two fingers between the collar and the dog or cat’s neck. Make sure the collar is not loose enough for the cat to put its leg through.
Please carefully observe your dog or cat when it’s wearing a collar for the first few days, especially when the pet is not used to wearing a collar. Try using a tasty treat, toy or other activities to distract your dog or cat’s attention from the new collar.1 Occasionally slight itching may be observed in animals that are not used to wearing collars in the first few days of fitting. Ensure that the collar is not fitted too tightly.
Please ensure collar is applied correctly. For complete product information and directions for use, please refer to the package insert.
