Non-Greasy, Odorless Flea and Tick Collar
Find the right collar for your dog
To ensure you get the right size Seresto dog collar for your pup, consider their weight.
The small size is meant for dogs up to 18 pounds and fits neck sizes 5-11.75 inches.
The large size is best for dogs over 18 pounds and neck sizes 10.5-23 inches.
f your dog falls outside of these weight and neck size parameters, the large size is still a good option since there is no upper weight limit.
Seresto is just as effective after a shampoo treatment, swimming, or exposure to rain or sunlight. Its effectiveness under normal conditions lasts for 8 months.
To keep the duration at 8 months, dogs can only be bathed once a month maximum. If dogs swim once a month or more often, theflea control duration is reduced to five months and the tick control duration is reduced to seven months.
How does it work?
The collar’s innovative polymer matrix stores active ingredients which are released in low concentrations over an 8 month period. This means that fleas and ticks are killed through contact, and they don’t have to bite your dog first.
How to Apply
Thread the end of the collar through the buckle to secure it in place.
Adjust the collar around the dog’s neck, making sure it is not too tight or too loose. There should be enough space to comfortably insert two fingers.
Put excess collar through the loop(s). Cut off any collar that hangs more than an inch beyond the loop(s), unless the dog is still a puppy and its collar is still growing.

I have never had a flea problem before. Where are my pets picking up fleas?
Fleas are very hardy pests that are quite capable of hitching rides on a variety of mammals. Wild animals or feral pets traveling through the environment may be a source for a pet’s exposure.Fleas may be brought to the house by: * You – attached to clothing, luggage, dog blankets, etc. * Your pet – any time your pet steps outside your house, they are potentially exposed to fleas, especially in areas where there are other animals. * Stray or homeless cats and dogs – since these animals are not being cared for, they are easy targets for fleas. A single feral cat walking through your backyard even just one time may drop many flea eggs into the grass or under shrubs. * Wildlife – particularly raccoons and opossums. These animals typically aren’t seen very often, because they are active at night. A single opossum can carry as many as 1,000 adult fleas! An opossum walking through your backyard even just one time can drop many flea eggs into the grass or under shrubs as they pass through. * Non-treated pets in the household – most dogs are treated for fleas and ticks. Often, the cats in the household are not, especially if they are indoor only cats. * Non-treated pets in the neighborhood – you may be vigilant about treating your pets for fleas, but your neighbor(s) may not.
What are the benefits of Seresto?
Inside the unique polymer matrix of Seresto are two active ingredients:
- Imidacloprid has been used in products for years to control flea infestations.
- Flumethrin effectively repels and kills ticks.Flumethrin works together with imidacloprid to provide dual action against fleas and ticks. No other treatment has this combination of ingredients.The active ingredients spread from the site of direct contact over the skin surface of the cat or dog.*Sustained release technology*Seresto works similarly to a monthly topical, but as the active ingredients wear off over time, a new supply is continuously replenished in low concentrations. The active ingredients spread from the site of direct contact over the skin surface.Bayer’s polymer matrix technology is designed to slowly and continuously release the active ingredients for eight months, a duration that makes it clearly different from other flea and tick collars.
Is Seresto water resistant?
Seresto is water resistant. The active ingredients of Seresto are contained within the Bayer Polymer Matrix, making it water-resistant. Therefore it is unnecessary to remove the collar before the pet is immersed in water. Seresto remains effective following a shampoo treatment, swimming, or after exposure to rain or sunlight. Under normal conditions, effectiveness lasts for eight months. In order to maintain an 8-month duration, dogs must not be bathed more than once per month. For dogs that swim once a month or more, the control duration is reduced to five months for fleas and seven months for ticks.
What if my cat or small dog gets stuck while wearing a Seresto collar?
Because some pet owners may be concerned that a cat or small dog could get stuck while wearing a collar, Seresto is designed with a safety release mechanism. In the unlikely event of the cat being trapped, the cat’s own strength is sufficient to widen the collar to allow for quick release.A hard pull causes the ratchet-release mechanism to allow a widening of the collar.The small dog and cat collars are equipped with a predetermined breaking point. A harder pull triggers the breaking of the collar at this point.

The increase in fleas you are seeing is likely due to the fact that they are dying off after treatment. This is normal and to be expected. If you are still seeing fleas after application, it is possible that your pet has picked up new fleas from the environment. This can 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 (e.g. carpet, yard, etc.) to ensure complete flea control.
