It’s so innovative that with Seresto, one collar is all that you need for most of the year. The technology allows it to release a controlled dose of the active ingredients over an extended period.

The way it works is that the ingredients are efficiently transferred to your kitty’s coat and skin. They then spread across the animal’s whole body. This is what keeps your cat protected from fleas and ticks for up to eight months.

Remember that this collar has been clinically proved to kill fleas within 24 hours.

There are two active ingredients. The first is imidacloprid, which effectively kills adult fleas as well as their larvae. The second is flumethrin, which is capable of repelling and killing ticks in all their life stages. There is no need for the parasites to bite your cat as both these ingredients act through contact alone.

It’s possible that ticks can still find their way onto your cat’s coat as it brushes past them. This can happen even when a Seresto Flea and Tick Control collar is attached. However, because the active ingredients work through contact it means that any ticks that jump onto your pet will immediately be exposed to the active ingredients.

The collar then acts to repel and kill the insects. Individual ticks can occasionally become attached. This is especially the case in any pet animals that live in areas with very high tick populations. But, the majority of ticks will find they are repelled and killed before they can bite.  

The active ingredients in each collar are bound within the collar’s matrix. This means they do not sit on the surface of the collar. Having said that you need to make sure your cat doesn’t chew the collar. 

There is a possibility that your cat may show signs of mild gastrointestinal issues like loose stools if it manages to chew its collar and swallow any active ingredients. If this happens and you are concerned refer the matter to your vet

If you find your kitty can get the collar into its mouth it’s a sign the collar has not been applied tightly enough. You should be able to slide two fingers in between the collar and the cat’s neck.

These collars can also be used on kittens, as long as they are aged 10 weeks and older.
