Seresto has an innovative delivery system and offers break-through protection against fleas and ticks for dogs and cats (and puppies and kittens too!!)
Seresto kills fleas and repels and kills ticks so they cannot attach and transmit disease
Seresto is NON-Greasy, Easy to USE, and most of all, ODORLESS!!
The two active ingredients in Seresto are IMIDACLOPRID and FLUMETHRIN
This unique combination of ingredients has been used in products recommended by vets ... for years to control flea infestation. It also effectively repels and kills ticks, larvae, and nymphs.
Living in New York and shuttling between the Finger Lakes Region and the Thousand Islands Region in Northern NY, we encounter MANY kinds of fleas and ticks!! Our Newf even had a case of sarcoptic mange...which is another GREAT thing about the Seresto collar...it aids in the treatment and control of sarcoptic mange!
Another disease that can be transmitted by ticks is anaplasmosis. The Anaplasmosis risk for dogs is STILL HIGH for dogs in 2014. Anaplasmosis is a bacterial infection transmitted by brown dog ticks and deer ticks. It is primarily found in dogs in the Northeast, as well as North Dakota, Minnesota, South Dakota, Nebraska, and Iowa.
For 2014, the Companion Animal Parasite Council (CAPC), predicts even HIGHER than normal infection rates in Upstate New York, New Hampshire, and Vermont.
The clinical signs of anaplasmosis in dogs are often similar to those of Lyme disease. The symptoms may include joint pain, lethargy, and lameness. Other possible clinical symptoms include fever, swollen lymph nodes, depression and weight loss. There have been cases where dogs appear to have a bloody nose. There is no vaccine available to reduce the risk of anaplasmosis, so year-round tick control is the most effective way to reduce the risk of infection. Here is where the Seresto collar comes in!!
Knowledge is key for the best protection of our pets. Due to the fact that parasites are dynamic and always changing, you should have a conversation with your vet about any parasite concerns you may have.
