Seresto collar

Are Seresto collars as good as oral meds i.e Advantage, nexgard, frontline?

Support 2A. Because a dog without teeth has no bite.

My dog runs daily in tick infested country and she's never had a tick on her that I saw.

talk to your vet ask the advantages & disadvantages of each:

my understanding sorresto collar, vectra & frontline topicals are repellents

some of the feed throughs are great products but the tick will have to get on the dog and bite it before the tick will die: on long enough to transmit some stuff (anaplasmosis i think) but not long enough to transmit lyme but some of the feed through products also have other advantages

I found that if the Seresto collar gets wet, it is not effective. Check the instructions about that.

For years I used Frontline Plus which is a topical. The patent for Frontline Plus has expired, so you can get the main ingredient, fibronil, for less money in other products. I use Pet Action Plus from Sam's club.

In the spring and fall when ticks are most active I also use a flea and tick collar. It is called Preventix and is about $17 at Tractor Supply. I found it to be very effective.

my 5-1/2 yr old wears one. I've never found a tick on her. The 1 yr old didn't tolerate the collar well and she's on the oral one. I found one tick on her this year that was attached to the underside of her ear, but dead. She's darker than the older one and they're harder to see on her - i check them both when we're done, but i missed one obviously.

There are some floating around out there that aren't from Bayer USA .... most come from the UK or SA. My wife tried to go cheap once and ordered from some website ... they looked similar, but were labeled as south african ... of course she learned about possible fakes AFTER she ordered them. she ended up calling bayer and they couldn't give her any information about the products and said that they shouldn't have even been sent through the mail. they suggested calling bayer, south africa ... at that point she decided to try and get a refund from the website (which she did eventually get) and shipped them back.

Another +1 for Seresto.

Been using them on my two labs for about 2 years now, and haven't found a tick on either one. We hunt some really tick infested game lands for pheasants too. Seresto does recommend a new collar every 6 months for water dogs, instead of 8 months, which I do.

Did a Seresto on our daughter's cat but it scorched her neck, so obviously some pets are sensitive to it.
