Seresto: Flea and Tick Prevention
Seresto for Flea and Tick Prevention
Seresto is a new odourless collar that prevents fleas and paralysis ticks in dogs, and fleas for cats (awaiting registration for prevention of ticks in cats in Australia). This may bethe first time we get a paralysis tick product for cats (other than Frontline spray which needs applying every 3 weeks).
How easy is this! Just place the collar on the cat or dog's neck, and in a short time you have 8 MONTHS OF PROTECTION
SERESTO IS AVAILABLE AT BHVG FROM 29th June 2016
Can you use it with other products?
Seresto can be used with other flea or tick products.
What is Seresto?
Seresto uses a novel blend of materials, enabling a safe, controlled low dose release of active ingredients over 8 months. Overseas, this provides excellent protection for cats, not only killing fleas and ticks but also repelling ticks before they bite - which helps to protect pets from the diseases these parasites can spread.
Seresto makes prevention convenient and (monthly applications become history) and promotes the continuous protection of pets. It’s a simple way to ensure you’re doing the right thing pets, while helping you keep fleas and ticks successfully under control.
What if my pet chews the collar?
Seresto has been extensively tested for its safety, including pets chewing on the collar or ingesting the entire collar. As the vast majority of active ingredients are bound in the collar matrix and not on the surface, the only side effect recorded after ingesting a full collar was a mild stomach upset (e.g. loose stools), which was resolved within 24 hours.
When age can my pet start on Seresto?
Seresto is safe for use in kittens and puppies aged 10 weeks of age and older.
“Do I need to remove the collar if my pet gets wet?”
No, the Seresto collar itself is water resistant. Also, because the active ingredients are stored in and distributed through a layer of oil on the pet’s skin, being wet won’t wash them away unless your pet goes to the beach or river more than a coule of times a week.
NB Seresto is awaiting registration in Australia for prevention of paralysis ticks in cats
