Seresto Flea and Tick Collar for Small Dogs, 8 month protection
Seresto is an odorless, non-greasy collar that kills and repels fleas and ticks on dogs for 8 continuous months.
- Sarcoptic mange
Seresto combines two active ingredients: imidacloprid and flumethrin. The Bayer Polymer Matrix enables Seresto to provide a continuous, slow release of the active ingredients for 8 months.
Seresto is for use on puppies 7 weeks of age and older.
Seresto is water resistant and remains effective following a shampoo treatment, swimming or after exposure to rain or sunlight. Under normal conditions, effectiveness lasts for 8 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 5 months for flea control and reduced to 7 months for tick control.
Flumethrin 4.5% Imidacloprid 10.0%
Remove collar from protective bag directly before use. Unroll collar and make sure that there are no remnants from the plastic connectors inside the collar.
Insert end of the collar through the buckle. Adjust the collar around the animal’s neck without tightening it too tight or leaving it too loose. As a guide, it should be possible to only insert 2 fingers comfortably between the collar and the neck. Pull excess collar through the loop(s). Collar length of greater than 1 inch (2 cm) beyond the loop(s) should be cut off unless it is on a growing puppy, where some additional length may be needed for adjustment as the animal grows.
After application of the collar, three reflector clips may be fixed permanently to the collar to increase the animal’s visibility in the dark. Take the clips out of the bag. The clips should be evenly distributed on the non-overlapping part of the collar. The clips are correctly applied when a clicking sound is heard. For safety reasons once the reflectors are fixed to the collar the clasp closes permanently and cannot be re-opened.
The collar should be worn continuously for the 8 month protection period. Check periodically and adjust fit if necessary, especially when puppies are rapidly growing.
This collar is designed with a release mechanism. In the unlikely event of a dog being trapped, the dog’s own strength is sufficient to widen the collar to allow for quick release.
