Not everyone likes to have a flea treatment for their pets that they have to constantly keep up with. For those who prefer not to use monthly treatments.

Seresto provides a perfect answer in their flea and tick collar for Large Dogs.  It is a great attach and forget method that will give your dog up to 8 months of protection against fleas.

Age Requirements of the Pet

Sersto’s Flea and Tick Collar for Large Dogs can be used on dogs AND puppies 7 weeks and older. There is no weight requirement to worry about as long as they meet the age requirement. It is one of the simplest flea control methods available.

Things to Watch out for

One of the benefits to using a Seresto Flea and Tick Collar is that there is very little, if anything, to worry about when it comes to hazards. You need to be careful that the puppy or dog doesn’t get it hung on something and that can be achieved by making sure the fit is done properly. We will outline this in detail a little further down in this review.

You do need to make sure that children do not play with, wear, chew on or handle the flea collar. Once it’s on the dog, they need to leave it alone and not play with it or handle it a lot.  There is still a pesticide on the collar so it needs to be treated as such. The container it comes in will need to be disposed of properly and you should wash your hands immediately after handing and putting the collar on your dog.

What does it Kill/Repel

Seresto Flea and Tick Collar for Large Dogs kills adult fleas and ticks as well.  It is designed to slowly and consistently release the active ingredients that are present in the collar for up to 8 months.  In addition to killing fleas and ticks it also repels ticks.  If a tick isn’t able to attach to the dog, then it can’t transmit diseases to your dog that can be harmful and cause health problems.

Application Method and Instructions

The Seresto Flea and Tick Collar is worn around the dog’s neck just like their regular collar would be. It does not have to replace their existing collar and can be worn along with it easily.  Putting the collar on the dog is possibly one of the simplest things you can do.  We have outlined the steps below.

  1. Remove the collar from the plastic covering and throw the covering away properly.
  2. Put it around the dog’s neck and push one end of the collar through the buckle.
  3. Tighten the collar to the proper length, making sure that you can get two fingers between the collar and your dog’s neck. Make sure the fit is good; you don’t want the dog to be able to pull it off or wiggle out of it.
  4. Cut any extra collar off and dispose of it properly and safely.
  5. Immediately wash your hands with soap and water after attaching the collar.

Speed of Results

Usually you can expect to see a difference in the amount of fleas that your dog has within 24-48 hours of putting the collar on them. If you have a bad infestation you may want to consider using a flea shampoo to bathe and kill the fleas first and then put the collar on to continue to protect them from fleas and ticks getting back onto them.
