Seresto® is different from conventional flea and tick collars. It employs a novel blend of materials, enabling a safe, controlled, low dose release of active ingredients over 8 months. This provides excellent protection for your dog, not only killing fleas and ticks but also repelling ticks before they bite – which helps to protect your pet from the diseases these parasites can spread.
Today, most flea and tick treatments require monthly applications. With such busy personal and professional lives, it’s not surprising that many people find it difficult to remember when re-treatment is required. However, this often leads to dogs not being protected from the discomfort of fleas and tick – and more importantly, the diseases these parasites can transmit.
Seresto® now offers an easy solution to this problem by offering up to 8 months of protection with a single application. It’s a simple way to ensure you’re doing the right thing for your dog, while helping you keep fleas and ticks successfully under control.
Seresto has been developed based on a novel blend of materials, also referred to as a “polymer matrix”, and with highly recognized active ingredients:

When using a flea and tick treatment, safety is one of the first things many people think about. Seresto® has been rigorously tested to ensure that all the ingredients in the Seresto® formulation are safe not only for your dog, but also for yourself, your family and the environment*.
Seresto® has been rigorously tested for its safety in use with dogs. Its high safety margins make it a good choice even for puppies 8 weeks of age and older.
Seresto® uses active ingredients which are highly targeted at insects and parasites such as fleas and ticks. Furthermore, these ingredients have demonstrated a synergistic effect against insects (which means they boost each other’s efficacy) in in-vitro studies. Therefore, only very low doses are required for the collar to be effective.
The active ingredients in Seresto® are locked within the collar and released at very low doses, making Seresto® safe for use around families and within the home. This has been confirmed through multiple safety studies1.
However, as with any flea and tick treatment, there are some standard safety procedures you should follow. Please refer to the label insert for full information.
As the active ingredients are locked within its polymer matrix, Seresto® is water-resistant and does not need to be removed before swimming or bathing. On treated animals, the active ingredients are stored within a fatty layer on the skin and coat, limiting any release into water and ensuring it is safe for the environment.
