Seresto Dog is an innovative, odorless and water-resistant collar for the prevention and control of fleas, various species of ticks and biting lice in dogs.

The collar releases continuously a low dose of the active substances imidacloprid and flumethrin.
Seresto also protects via the skin flakes, containing the active ingrediens, the direct surroundings of the animal against development of flea larvae.
The product can be used as part of a treatment strategy for flea allergy dermatitis (FAD).
The collar remains active against fleas and ticks for up to 8 months.
Seresto Dog <8 kg is suitable for dogs with a body weight of up to 8 kg.
Seresto Dog >8 kg is suitable for dogs with a body weight from 8 kg.
It is important to treat all animals in the house against fleas. 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 dogs up to 4 times a year or sometimes even more depending on the risk of infection.
