Rated 4 out of 5by JimmyT Everything I hoped it would be. Many positives with one negative. Our "Dog"hter is our baby. Her first summer we found out that she had some pretty bad allergy issues. That coupled with hot summer days and evil fleas really put her in a bad place. She spent so much time biting and scratching that she wasn't sleeping well and her appetite was almost non-existent. She was miserable, we would have to slip some Benadryl in her bowl so she could get some sleep. We tried everything under the sun until a Sales Person at Petco told me about Seresto. He said that many customers that had tried everything like us came back and said Seresto worked. then he told me it was $90 but it lasted 8 months. I was leary about the price but he said if it doesn't work I could bring it back. I was sold and do not regret it at all!!! IT WORKS, and IT WORKS GREAT!!! within a few days the scratching stopped, a few weeks later the skin problems were gone and almost all healed up. She was eating good and sleeping even better. I mean full on snoring and dream time. She was happy and active again. Five months later she started scratching and it all started to come back. I bought another Seresto and it all went away again. Five months later it started all over again. I bought another one and again it all cleared up. So... It's a great product, IT WORKS, it is worth every penny because IT WORKS but it only lasts 5 months not 8 but hey IT WORKS!!! I talked to our Vet about it and she said she gets the same feedback, it lasts 5-6 months on average based on her customers reviews but almost everyone who buys it from her say that they don't mind because IT WORKS!!!
Oh by the way, did I mention IT WORKS!!!!! 09/15/2015
Rated 3 out of 5by Amcesena Seresto Large Dog not working on month 3 Problem with effectiveness.
-Bought 2 large dog collars and tried them on each one of our dogs.
-They worked well for 2 months.
- We are starting on month 3 and one of the dogs started scratching near the tail.
-I combed through with a flea comb and out came about 5 fleas!
-I kept combing and many more came out.
-Am combing her every day and removing them once a day.
-Not sure if I can add another topical solution or if it will be too much poison for the dogÂ´s system,
The dogs run free all day on the countryside among dirt, vineyards, shrubs, etc. They only sleep indoors.
Could this be the reason its not working?
This is only happening with one dog. The other collar has worked perfectly well and both dogs are buddies and hang out doing the exact same things. 09/13/2015
Rated 5 out of 5by olddawg39 Convenience With 4 adult dogs of different breeds, we have tried all the available flea and tick products, while spending untold $100s of dollars.......To date the overall results have been average, at best......With 4 continuously scratching dogs, average results, just won't "cut it"
I never considered trying Seresto collars.....I assumed the results would be the "same old, same old", as with "flea collars of old"....
Then a friend told me about the availability of a new "miracle" flea and tick product.....I was thinking maybe some kind of super pet inhaler......One sniff in each dog's nostril, will kill fleas, ticks, mites, fire ants, bees, snakes, frogs, and small alligators and remains effective for the life of your pet!
"No" he said, "it's a flea and tick collar", made by Bayer and costs around $50.00....I said "If that's the same folks that make aspirin tablets, then I think I need a few"
Seriously, Seresto collars have been very effective in repelling and killing fleas and ticks on my 4 dogs.....
I couldn't believe a flea collar, would finally be what I needed to control our pet's lifelong flea and tick infestation....
All the other flea and tick products, now available, are anything BUT convenient......Getting your pet to take the oral tablets, chewable and liquids, can be almost impossible.....after a few doses, persistent scratching is a better alternative......Putting on a Seresto, collar is like attaching your dog's regular collar.....Takes maybe a minute.....Now, how convenient is that?...The Soresto collar includes these "cool" attachable reflective jewels......Makes it easier to find your black dog, on a black night.
When you consider the Seresto collar's lasting effectiveness, of up to 8 months, then 50 bucks is a bargain!
My only regret is that the Seresto collar was not available, when I needed a product that really works! 09/03/2015
