Seresto® (imidacloprid, flumethrin) is used for the prevention and treatment of ticks and fleas for 8 months. Seresto® collars contain two active ingredients: imidacloprid which has been used in products recommended by veterinarians for years to control flea infestations; and flumethrin, which repels and kills ticks.

Occasionally slight itching may be observed in animals that are not used to wearing collars in the first few days after fitting. Ensure that the collar is not fitted too tightly. Slight hair loss and mild skin reactions due to the mechanical irritation of the collar may occur at the application site which usually recover within 1 or 2 weeks without the need for collar removal.
