Seresto Flea & Tick Control Collar for Cats
Seresto medicated collars contain the active ingredients imidacloprid and flumethrin. The are suitable for the treatment and prevention of flea infestation for 7 to 8 months as well as protecting the animal’s immediate surroundings against flea larvae development for 10 weeks.
The product has persistent acaricidal (killing) efficacy (Ixodes ricinus, Rhipicephalus turanicus) and repellent (anti-feeding) efficacy against tick infestations (Ixodes ricinus) for 8 months. It is effective against larvae, nymphs and adult ticks.
Ticks already on the cat prior to treatment may not be killed within 48 hours after collar application and may remain attached and visible. The prevention of infestations with new ticks starts within two days after application of the collar.
Collar is 48cm in length.
Do not treat kittens less than 10 weeks of age.
Do not use in cases of hypersensitivity to the active substances or to any of the excipients.
Ticks will be killed and fall off the host within 24 to 48 hours after infestation without having had a blood meal, as a rule. An attachment of single ticks after treatment cannot be excluded. For this reason, a transmission of infectious diseases by ticks cannot be completely excluded if conditions are unfavourable.
Ideally, the collar should be applied before the beginning of the flea or tick season.
Cutaneous use. One collar per animal to be fastened around the neck.
Remove collar from protective bag directly before use. Unroll collar and make sure that there are no remnants from the plastic connectors inside the collar.
Adjust the collar around the animal’s neck without tightening it too tight (as a guide, it should be possible to insert 2 fingers between the collar and the neck). Pull excess collar through the loop and cut off any excess length extending beyond 2 cm.
The collar should be worn continuously for the 8 month protection period and should be removed after the treatment period. Check periodically and adjust fit if necessary, especially when kittens are rapidly growing.
This collar is designed with a safety-closure mechanism.
