Seresto for Dogs

$ 54.85



Seresto offers a breakthrough in flea and tick protection, providing up to 8 months of continuous protection from fleas and 4 months continuous protection from ticks for dogs.

Seresto treats and prevent flea infestations by killing adult fleas on your dog and flea larvae in their surroundings for up to 8 months.

Seresto kills adult ticks, including the deadly Australian paralysis tick (Ixodes holocyclus) as well as brown dog and bush ticks for 4 months. It also kills juvenile stages of brown dog ticks

Why is Seresto different from other flea and tick collars on the market?
Seresto uses innovative technology, which allows for controlled-release of low doses of actives. This maximises the safety and long-term efficacy in dogs. This technology has allowed Seresto to overcome the challenges of conventional flea or tick collars, to be water-resistant and odourless.

Key Benefits
  • Seresto is safe for your pet, family and the environment
  • Seresto is the convenient way to ensure continuous protection
  • Seresto kills parasites without them having to bite, unlike some products
  • Seresto is also water-resistant and odourless

Seresto can be worn alongside normal collars, as they won't interfere with the efficacy of Seresto.

Active Ingredients: Imidacloprid 100 mg/g; Flumethrin 45 mg/g

How it works
  1. Active ingredients (actives) are integrated into Seresto’s innovative polymer matrix.
  2. Low doses of these actives are released from the matrix as needed over time and migrate into the lipid (fatty/oily) layer of your dog’s skin and hair.
  3. Actives are not significantly absorbed through the skin, but remain within the naturally water resistant, lipid layer of the skin and hair – so your dog can still enjoy the water.
  4. The actives in the skin and hair of your pet kill fleas and ticks on contact therefore not relying on them having to bite your dog.
  5. The hair and dead skin that your dog sheds naturally each day contain small amounts of actives, enough to kill flea larvae that may live in your dog’s surroundings


Precautions
Side Effects: Application site reactions such as inflammation, eczema or lesions may occur and in these instances; temporary removal of the collar may be recommended until the symptoms have disappeared. In the unlikely event of the animal eating the collar mild gastrointestinal symptoms (e.g. loose stools) may occur.
Paralysis Tick:The Paralysis tick (Ixodes holocyclus) is a deadly parasite and is difficult to control. While SERESTO controls paralysis ticks for 4 months, the risk of tick paralysis cannot be entirely eliminated as it only takes one adult tick to cause tick paralysis. Therefore, daily searching for and removal of any ticks found is still recommended.

Is Seresto safe for puppies?
Yes, it can be used in puppies from 7 weeks weeks of age.
