Flea and Tick Control for Dogs
Seresto Flea and Tick Collar for Dogs is an innovative delivery system offering a breakthrough in protection for dogs for 8 months.
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.
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.
*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.
