I guess i’ve been very lucky for the last 40+ years. I’ve never had flea issues with any of my dogs but for what ever reason this year it all changed.
With all the negative reviews on ‘all’ the flea collars sold on amazon it’s really a crap shoot on which to choose. I opted to go with the ‘seresto flea and tick collar’ probably because it appeared to have the least number of negative reviews.
Bottom line (despite all the negative reviews) this collar is working fine for my 10 1/2 year old chocolate lab and with no apparent side effects after the first month of use. I’m only one user but that’s my experience and honest review.
Seresto is an excellent collar but i have one problem. I’ve always used this collar on my dog ever since he was a pup. He’s 5 now and 130 lbs and the collar no longer fits sound his neck properly. He’s a large breed and has a large head with a thick neck. Now the biggest collar no longer stays around his neck, i love the way it works that’s why i keep purchasing it for him and my girl..i try to tighten the collar as tight as possible without choking him but it always finds a way to slide off.. Other collars are long enough but they just don’t work like the seresto collar.
These are the only collars that work in our location. We have lots of sand and forest. The sand is infested with fleas and the forest is mainly pine trees that are infested with ticks. Our dogs are constantly going in and out of the house and with that comes the dreaded sand fleas. If i forget to order on time to replace these collars, they are literally chewing their skin to the point of raw spots. We have issues getting them to do the eatables and when we started purchasing seresto collars, we haven’t had an issue since. My only complaint is that their price per collar can be a shocker. There was a time we had 6 dogs, 2 extra large, 1 large, 1 medium and 2 small and it was an expense we had to work around. Money was extremely tight, so i ordered 4 extra large and cut them to fit, then used zip ties to hold them on. I don’t recommend that, but we did what we had to do to keep our babies flea free. Now that we are down to 3 and they are all the same size. Thank you seresto for such a great product.
I live in an extremely rural area in the south and during the spring and summer it gets very hot and very buggy here. For the past couple of seasons, we have had a really bad flea problem. The ticks haven’t been as bad as i have seen them but the fleas have been awful. I currently have two dogs and two cats. My dogs, both rescues, are very large dogs. One is a 90lb german shepherd dog and the other is a 160 lb golden retriever/leonberger mix. My german shepherd dog has a severe flea allergy and has been struggling with hair loss and extremely itchy skin because of the high flea population we’ve had the past couple of years triggering his allergies. I tried everything: natural flea killing remedies for inside the house and treating my lawn to help minimize the chance of one of the little buggers hitching a ride on him when he goes outside. I have him on just about every flea pill i can think of from my vet. Comfortis did ok during the winter and late fall/early spring. Once the season got into high gear, it didn’t seem to make much of a dent into the fleas. Same with trifexis. Frontline worked about as well as the others. Between flea and heartworm meds, i was spending $100 a month of preventative care for just my two dogs. Having used advantage about 10 years or so back on another dog i had at the time when we had another serious flea year i thought i’d give it a try again.
I had read about the seresto collar and how it would take care of fleas and ticks for 8 months and since advantage had worked for me in the past i thought it was definitely something i should be looking into. I couldn’t buy it at my local vet as they don’t carry it so i turned to amazon. I read through the reviews and liked what i was seeing. I ordered one of the collars and impatiently awaited its arrival.
As soon as the mail carrier put it in the box i was on it and put it on my german shepherd dog since he is most severely affected by the fleas. Because of his size, i didn’t even bother trimming the end of the collar. One of the reviews mentioned about a 10 day period for the collar to really start to work but my experience with it is a little different. I started seeing dead fleas later the same day i put the collar on the dog. The flea problem had gotten so bad in the house that i was ready to call an exterminator to try and eliminate them. Every living thing in the house was scratching thanks to the fleas. Within about a week of putting the collar on just one dog, all of that stopped. I still see a flea from time to time but that is usually after we come back inside after a walk or playing. There are no more fleas in the house. Even places the dogs and cats don’t go, the fleas are gone. I had planned on buying another collar for my 160lb dog but with the way this one has worked, i don’t really think that will be necessary. My german shepherd dog is getting his hair back slowly and he’s not scratching all the time. He’s sleeping better–everyone is sleeping better.
I know with the economy being what it is right now, i understand completely that $50 for a flea and tick collar may seem like a lot to spend at one time (that is one of the reasons my local vet doesn’t carry it because a lot of their customers can’t afford it) but it is very well worth it if you have a flea and/or tick problem. My $100 a month preventative bills went down to $30 after purchasing this collar. This works out to around $6.25 a month for the best flea and tick protection i’ve ever found. There aren’t any pills to con the pets into eating (no more fixing peanut butter sandwiches to get the pills eaten!) or no messy topicals to apply.
I am absolutely sold on this flea collar and will not ever use another brand of flea and tick preventative again. This is the only solution for me. All of the positive reviews on this site for this collar, believe them. The praises they are singing are absolutely spot on.
Edit, 4th september, 2014: i wanted to come back in and update my review since it’s been a couple of months since i purchased this collar and put it on my dog.
The collar has worked beautifully! It is still killing fleas and ticks like it promises, my dog has not had any allergic reactions to it (something i worried about as another reviewer commented their dog did react) and my home and surrounding area is completely flea-free. I wasn’t expecting this one collar to kill all the fleas in the house with four animals running around in here, but it has. My gsd has almost all of his hair back and i can tell a huge difference in his personality. He’s more playful and happy all the time like he used to be before he had his awful allergic reaction to a flea bite. The only chewing or scratching he does now is where his skin itches from the new growth, and that scratching/chewing is decreasing steadily. I haven’t seen a single flea in well over a month and i don’t even worry about picking up any buggy hitchhikers when we go for walks anymore as i know the collar will take care of them. My biggest worry now is my gsd playing in the poison ivy. 🙂
This is the best flea and tick killer out there. We live in the woods and my dog roams free at times. When she starts scratching, i know it’s time for another collar. These collars last for months. The veterinarian in our town agrees that they are a great buy for flea and tick protection.
I have a german shepherd/ black lab mix (possible aussie or blue tick hound) who is about 70 pounds and 8 years old.
When i was a kid my pets got fleas really bad and mom tried everything. And i mean everything. To avoid the expensive veterinarian care. She ended up buyung these and in the long run spending more than the vet bill wouldve been in total costs with all the treatments we tried, but less instantly with buying these alone. Turned around our pets conditions in less than a week (2 cats less than a year old but fully grown, a pitbull mix ~ 1 year old, a pom mix 3 to 5 years old).
So i continued buying these for my pups for the last 6 years. One has passed recently due to other complications, a pomeranian mix about 9 to 11 years old (same one as at my moms house).
None of the pets ive seen with these have had any reaction. I will say my larger dog has dry skin problems but she had that before i used these collars and before i met her. These collars dont make it worse.
Super simple, one complaint. It advertises reflective attachments. Yeah theyre not so great. Break easy and are hidden in fur so it doesnt work. They also became a tangle spot on my pom. But the collars work very well and are worth the money on their own.
My large dog is still flea and tick free with a year old collar, but its winter now. I can honestly say they are effective for 6 months to a year.
A word to the wise: follow all warnings and instructions. Clip the collar to the length of your dog’s neck plus about an inch or two, cinch it down in the rings on the collar and remove the collar before baths. Keep your dog from chewing the collar and licking you after putting it on. Wash your hands.
If your dog develops a reaction based on an allergy include that in the review, because not every dog has an allergy. If your dog ate the collar or chewed on it include that too bc its different if its just a normal wearing collar situation that causes something and if a dog eats something theyre not supposed to. I wonder how many bad reviews are based on this? Seresto however should include a warning label for allergens if there isnt one already.
The collar becomes a dark grey and a hard plastic when its expired. Fresh out of the pack its soft and light grey with a white powder coating. We tried cheaper collars, they dont work to kill established fleas and they dont prevent ticks or flea eggs. Theyre little more than citronella bug spray in effectiveness.
Seresto collars have the added benefit (im guessing they cant advertise bc its not been scientifically tested) of repelling any blood sucking pests. Ive not noticed any mosquitoes on my dog and we moved to an area last summer where they have mosquito trucks bc the mosquitos are that bad (they didnt have the trucks in tennessee, do in illinois). Cheaper collars dont do that.
Seresto collars all the way for us! Will update on the off chance my dog develops a reaction.
We buy these collars for our dogs each spring and they last all the way through the fall. We don’t have issues with flea and ticks in the winter in the north, but i always purchase them a new collar each spring. I have never found a tick on our dogs while they have had this collar. I do not smell it and it doesn’t seem to be oily or anything like some of the collars can be. I would recommend this brand to anyone.
Our vet recommended this about a year ago for our duck hunting chocolate lab. It protects for like 6 months or more and is water resistant which is perfect. No scent and easy to put on. Never had an issue with it coming off. Little spendy but worth it as you only have to replace it 2 times per year. Will be buying for the foreseeable future!
I have a husky german shepherd mix and she goes to the vet and gets all her scheduled treatments. I live in the carolinas and fleas have been an issue even with her treatments. This collar is the only prevention measure that i have found that actually works completely. I love this and highly recommend!!
My weimaraner has been wearing the seresto flea and tick collar for a couple of years. I put a new one on him every 7-8 months. He loves going swimming so it is definitely waterproof. I have never seen a flea or tick on him. And my vet approves of it.
What’s to say that you don’t already know?
It’s a flea collar, works as it should
Been using this product for years and is highly effective at keeping fleas and ticks off my dog. In seven years, i’ve seen two fleas crawling on him and zero ticks which is pretty amazing given i’ve lived next to some real ghetto neighbors with badly infested dogs. My only issue ordering this time from amazon was that i got some foreign version of the flippin’ product that’s not in english. This is mildly annoying as although i’m familiar with how to apply it already, it does not specify if this is the exact same strength formula as the typical american version!!
I’m next to 2 homes with dogs, my dog is working family dog i’m deaf and rely on him in my home (he hears for me) theirs are yard dogs fed and watered and not much else when you can see ticks on a black dog you know it’s bad and yes i’ve called animal control that being said i have no fleas or other bugs but i do still have to watch for ticks i do spray my yard but between spraying they show up i have found them between his toes on 2 occasions not bad considering. I use this collar and simperica i’m in so. Cal. For reference
Been using these for years with our pets. I hated using the little liquid things and getting it all over the house. I think they work great, no ticks so far. But again, my dog doesn’t talk, so she really can’t tell me much.
Not crazy about the smell of the product but it could be worse. I like that they come with reflectors. I’ve used this product before and it worked great. This is my first time purchasing from amazon. So far it seems to be working fine.
It seems to be working.
I believe this collar works. My dog has not had any fleas or ticks that i have seen. We go to the dog park often. I do not treat my yard. I am pleased
We have used every season, i.e. Not winter. We trust it for our dog.
Purchased on aug 9th. A few days later we recieved the collars and put them on. These collars took a couple days and fleas were dead. Tonight, sept. 29, fleas are back. Aggravated that we spent money for these and didn’t even work for 2 months.
These work well, as far as i can tell. They are nice in that you can kind of forget about applying tick remedies for the entire season. I wish they were produced in different colors.
How to apply the Seresto collar on your dog: 1. Remove the collar from its packaging. 2. Unroll the collar and remove the small plastic connectors from inside the collar, ensuring that no remnants remain. 3. Insert the end of the collar through the buckle and loops. 4. Adjust the collar around your dog’s neck until it fits comfortably on them. 5. Two fingers should fit beneath the collar and neck to ensure it’s not too tight. Any excess length of the collar beyond an inch past the loops should be cut off, unless it is on a growing puppy, where some additional length may be needed for adjustment as the puppy grows. 6. Check periodically and adjust fit if necessary, especially on growing puppies. 7. Seresto comes with three optional reflector clips that can be attached to the collar to help keep your dog visible at night. The reflector clips should be evenly distributed on the non-overlapping part of the collar.
