The Seresto collar is an effective flea and tick preventative for dogs and cats. The active ingredients – imidacloprid and flumethrin – are designed to kill fleas, ticks, and larvae that make contact with your pet’s skin or fur.

However, as with all medications, there are certain side effects you should be aware of before using the product on your pet.

The most common side effect associated with the Seresto collar is skin irritation at the point of contact between the pet’s neck and the collar. While this cause discomfort, it usually isn’t severe enough to interfere with daily activities. If your pet experiences any areas of redness, itching or swelling near the collar area after usage, discontinue use immediately and seek veterinary advice immediately.

Additionally, some pets may experience gastrointestinal upset if they ingest part of the collar. If your pet displays symptoms such as vomiting or diarrhea after using the Seresto collar, remove it immediately and consult your veterinarian if symptoms persist.

Finally, because these active chemicals are ingested by small organisms such as fleas and ticks by just brushing against them on your pets’ fur or skin, it is possible that other organisms may also be exposed to them inadvertently; always read product labels thoroughly before use.. Additionally, humans can get sick from handling a Seresto collar directly; wear gloves when applying or removing it from a pet’s neck area in order to protect yourself from potential side effects associated with handling it directly.. Ultimately, while serious side effects from using a Seresto Collar rarely occur—they can potentially occur—so always seek veterinary advice before use to ensure that this product is safe for your pet specifically.
