Seresto flea collar for cats – The good and the bad
If you are anything like me, I hate seeing animals in distress. Especially when it comes to ticks or fleas. I have had many animals in the past which have had nasty bites and scabs left by fleas which eventually turned into an infestation (sorry about the visuals).
The main reason I found out my cat had fleas in the first place was that I picked up on a few lumps that were on the hind leg of my cat “mighty”.
Seeing he had a few stray fleas around his belly I decided to investigate a few options that are on the market and also a few alternatives in which I thought I would give a quick review on for the guests on this blog.
If you’ve been in this situation you’ve probably been considering options in which to rectify your cat’s creepy crawly issues
Let’s get started on what I’ve uncovered on the Seresto Flea and Tick Collar for Cats
The Seresto Flea and Tick Collar is Veterinarian-recommended
What does this mean?
Not much really. Any vet can recommend anything if they are getting paid enough by the company instigating the sponsorship. Moving on.
- 8 Month ProtectionComing in at around $150 the Seresto Flea and Tick Collar is pretty comparable to other brands and products. the Frontline brand flea and tick products are floating around the $50 mark for a 3 month supply which puts the Seresto Collar in a good position value-wise3. No monthly pill ordealsThis is pretty self-explanatory. Sometimes it is a hassle having to remember to treat your cat for fleas and ticks every month and on-time.
It’s a collar. I know sometimes my pets are a little agitated by wearing collars, but if your cat isn’t then this doesn’t apply to your furry little friend
The Serestor Flea and tick collar has active chemicals.
Although the seresto Flea Collar does contain chemicals, they are quite effective in the termination of fleas and ticks on dogs.
Studies on the Seresto Flea collar for cats concluded that :
“The imidacloprid 10%/flumethrin 4.5% collar will thereby contribute markedly to the effective and safe protection of cats and dogs against ectoparasites and consequently vector borne diseases.”
Please be aware around children, and contact with food water etc when the collar is in use
