How do Seresto® collars for dogs work?

The Seresto® collar works with a unique polymer matrix of two active ingredients, which spread from the site of direct contact over the skin surface of your dog:

  • Imidacloprid has been used in products for years to control flea infestations.
  • Flumethrin effectively kills and repels ticks.
  • Flumethrin works together with imidacloprid to provide dual action against fleas and ticks. No other product has this combination of ingredients.

Is Seresto® for dogs water resistant?

Seresto® for dogs is water resistant. The active ingredients of Seresto® are contained within the Bayer Polymer Matrix, making it water resistant. Therefore, it is unnecessary to remove the collar before the pet is immersed in water. Seresto® remains effective following a shampoo treatment, swimming, or after exposure to rain or sunlight. Under normal conditions, effectiveness lasts for eight months. To maintain an 8-month duration, dogs must not be bathed more than once per month. For dogs that swim once a month or more, the control duration is reduced to five months for fleas and seven months for ticks.

Do Seresto® collars for dogs expire?
