The Seresto® collar for dogs repels and kills ticks and kills fleas through simple contact, which means they don't have to bite your dog before they fall off and die. No biting means no itching and giving your dog the needed protection. If the parasites aren’t biting and sucking blood, there is a reduced risk of transmitting infections, which means you can put Seresto® on and simply know that your dog is well protected.
Seresto is a collar like no other! It works by releasing its active ingredients in controlled, low doses, allowing your dog to stay protected for up to eight months at a time. Odourless, water-resistant and effective against both fleas and ticks, the Seresto® dog collar is the simple, easy way to keep your best friend protected for longer.
At first sight, Seresto® might look like just another pet collar, but there’s a lot going on beneath the surface. The collar consists of a polymer matrix that slowly releases two active ingredients – imidacloprid and flumethrin – onto the layers of your dog’s skin and coat. The collar works to build up an invisible layer of protection that kills fleas and repels and kills ticks that come into contact with your dog.

However, prolonged, intense exposure to water or extensive shampooing should be avoided as the duration of activity may be reduced. Studies showed that monthly shampooing or water immersion did not significantly shorten the 8 months efficacy duration for ticks after redistribution of the active substances in the coat whereas the product’s flea efficacy gradually decreased, starting in the 5th month.
