Seresto Cat is an innovative, odorless and water-resistant collar for the prevention and control of fleas and various species of ticks in cats.
How does the Seresto collar work?
The collar releases continuously a low dose of the active substances imidacloprid and flumethrin. Seresto also protects via the skin flakes, containing the active ingredients, the direct surroundings of the animal against development of flea larvae. In addition, although not on the leaflet, Seresto Cat can also be used as a treatment for a lice infection (Trichodectes canis).
The collar remains active against fleas and ticks for up to 8 months. Seresto Cat collar only has one variant with a length of 38 cm.
Why do I need the Seresto collar for cats?
It is important to treat all animals in the house against fleas, so all cats and dogs. In case of a flea infestation, or the existing risk of a flea infestation, it is also necessary to treat the infected environment, so that you kill larvae and all adult fleas in the house. Indoor-X Spray is a suitable product for this.
Fleas are intermediate hosts of the dog tapeworm Dipylidium Caninum. This tapeworm can be transmitted by swallowing a flea by dogs and cats. This is one of the reasons why veterinarians advise regularly deworming your pets. It is wise to deworm all adult cats up to 4 times a year depending on the risk of infection.
