Seresto collar for small dogs

Small dogs rarely live in the yard. Usually, owners prefer to keep miniature pets in the house, carefully look after them during walks and often think that their pets are reliably protected from blood-sucking insects, and if any especially lucky flea gets to the dog, a monthly treatment with a special shampoo or spray will be enough, to get rid of it.

Alas, it is not so! Fleas are extremely tenacious of live creatures. These are real travellers who move on stray and domestic dogs and cats, on clothes and shoes, penetrating even into city apartments. Their eggs can lie in the grass of a backyard or park for a long time, waiting for your pet to walk on them, and ticks can move on animals and birds. It is impossible to guarantee that a small dog will not encounter parasites!

But the Seresto flea & tick collar for small dogs can provide you with this protection. Easy, high quality, safe. Literally one movement – and fleas no longer threaten your family pet!
