How Long It Protects
One of the best aspects of the Bayer Seresto Collar
is its longevity. This collar offers one of the longest protection periods on the market. In total, it is capable of protecting your pooch for eight continuous months. It may also help treat and control sarcoptic mange and lice. During that eight-month period, you will never have to worry about your pooch falling prey to fleas or ticks! For the price, the collar is very cost effective.
Kills On Contact
One thing to note is that this collar will actually kill on contact. Some of the other flea collars for dogs
will not take action, until the dog has actually been bitten by the flea or tick. This means that they’ll need to suffer a little bit of pain, before the collar will work its magic. With this collar, those pests can be eliminated in advance. The collar kills and repels ticks and fleas.
No Collar Change Needed
There is a good chance that your pooch has come to love his or her collar. They probably hate when you take it off. This is another perk of the Seresto collar. With it, you do not have to worry about removing their original collar. The collar will not interfere with other collars
, so they can both be worn simultaneously. On top of that, the collar is completely effortless to apply. Just strap it around their neck as you would a regular collar and you’re good to go.
Nontoxic For Pets
The Bayer Seresto Collar utilizes two ingredients to eradicate fleas on contact. These ingredients, Imidacloprid and Flumethrin, are nontoxic for pets, but capable of eradicating both ticks and fleas on contact and no biting is required. Imidacloprid is a neonicontinoid that targets the central nervous system of ticks and fleas. This systemic insecticide has lower toxicity to domestic animals and humans. It was approved in 1994 to be utilized as a pesticide, targeting parasitic insects, soil insects, fleas, ticks and termites. Flumethrin is classified as a pyrethroid insecticide that is utilized to control a variety of parasitic insects, as well as ticks. This ingredient is integrated into products, such as a dog collar, to protect cattle, canines, horses, sheep and goats from flea and ticks. Flumethrin is also utilized to control parasitic mites that are known to plague honeybee colonies. Both of these ingredients are extremely popular among veterinarians, because they are very effective and safe. It also has low toxicity for humans, so if you come into contact with these ingredients, you should not experience any adverse reactions. However, some dog owners have reported their dogs experiencing adverse effects when utilizing this collar.
