Seresto® is an odorless collar with patented technology that kills and repels fleas and ticks, kills lice, and helps treat and control sarcoptic mange on dogs for eight continuous months, setting it apart from conventional collars.

Slight hair loss and mild skin reactions due to the mechanical irritation of the collar may occur at the application site; this usually clears within one or two weeks without the need for collar removal.

Keep the collar in the bag and in the outer packaging until use. Keep out of reach of children. Choking hazard — contains small parts. For external use on dogs only. Do not use Seresto® for Dogs on other animals.
