Fleas can quickly become a problem for you and your cat if you don’t stay on top of things. But it’s easy to forget to give regular, monthly treatments. The Seresto collar for cats keeps your pet protected for 8 months at a time.
The Seresto cat collar kills fleas through simple contact, which means the fleas don’t have to bite your cat before they’re killed.
Active Ingredients: Flumethrin 4.5%, Imidacloprid 10.0%.
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.
How does Seresto work?
At first sight, Seresto might look like just another pet collar, but it’s far from ordinary. Unlike other flea collars, Seresto contains two active ingredients called imidacloprid and flumethrin that are released in low doses and spread throughout your cat’s skin and fur from head to tail. The collar creates an invisible layer of protection that kills fleas that come in contact with your cat.
How to apply
Remove the Seresto collar from the pouch. Remove any remaining plastic connectors on the inside of the collar. Put the collar around your cat’s neck and insert the loose end into the two loops. Cut off any extra collar length, leaving about 2 cm of the loose end beyond the second loop. Make sure the collar is neither too tight nor too loose. Ideally, two fingers should fit between the collar and your cat’s neck.
