Seresto Collar

Every year I struggled with ticks on my gsp. I used a few different types of drops, finally this year I tried one of those seresto collars. The collar has been on 5 months now and after our first hunt the other day, not a single tick was on the dog! This message is in no way shape or form sponsored by seresto, just wanted to put a plug in for those of you who struggle with ticks on your dog.

They've worked great for me for the past few years. Those collars with sheep drench for heartworms and they are covered.

Definitely worth the money! I put new ones on in the spring and they work flawlessly through the next winter. I hunted with a friend and his dog last weekend and he was complaining about ticks all over his dog and mine had none. The next day he bought a serestro.

Make sure you get a genuine Bayer Seresto. There are a lot of fake ones that have Seresto and even the Bayer markings on the can but they are fake. My wife bought some on Ebay because they looked like the real deal. I put one on my beagle and after just a few days she started having upset stomach and becoming lethargic. Ticks were still as bad as they were without a collar, so I began to investigate and found that a lot of people were having similar problems and some of their pets had become very sick and some had died. I did some searching and found out that a lot of fakes are being sold recently. I have included some pics below of how you can tell a fake from the genuine seresto. Hopefully, it will keep someone's best friend from getting sick.

1. Front of cans look similar
2. Back of genuine collar can will have a lot# and expiration date. Fake does not (usually)
3. Genuine will have Seresto and Bayer stamped around the can on the sides. Fake does not.
4. Genuine Seresto is more narrow than the fake.
5. Genuine Seresto have reflectors included. At least the ones have purchased.

Comparison pics.

My wife did the same thing ... they were from Bayer South Africa, but shipped from England. After she ordered them is when she realized that something might be up ... She ended up calling Bayer, USA and had a pretty long discussion with them. Long story short - Bayer USA couldn't tell her for sure if they were real or not, and they didn't even know for certain if it was the same drugs as used on the collars here. All they'd tell her is that they really shouldn't have even been shipped from an overseas address to us. They suggested calling Bayer South Africa, but we just stopped at that point.

Luckily, she was able to get a refund issued.

On another note ... My older dog has been on one since she was a puppy and the only issue she had was one summer when she was doing a lot of swimming with the collar on - it apparently shouldve been replaced & she got a bad case of fleas, but that's more my fault for not believing them and replacing the collar soon enough. The younger dog seemed to develop a rash from it and will even get one if she's laying on the older dog a lot or spends too much time playing with my buddy's dog who also wears one. She gets a pill from the vet.

I would just suggest that after people put them on there dogs that they keep an eye on them for a couple days because I have 5 labs and hunt them allot ! I had bought the originals and put them on my dogs and 3 of them were fine but my one dog got a very bad skin issue under the collar and lost all her hair around the collar under her neck. My one other dog (her son) started having seizures so I took it off of both of them and so far so good ! Just something to watch for !! My other 3 dogs have been good and tick free with them on !!

Blend in or go hungry !!

Zeke, bought a replacement for mine from Tractor Supply last night and it was like the one on the left.
