Composition: 1 Necklace (38 cm) dog Seresto <8 kg contains 1.25 g and 0.56 g of imidacloprid flumethrin.
For the prevention and treatment of flea infestation (Ctenocephalides felis, C. canis) for 7 - 8 months. It protects the immediate environment of the animal by inhibiting the development of flea larvae for 8 months.
Seresto can be used as part of a treatment strategy for allergic dermatitis caused by flea bites (DAPP).
The veterinary drug is effective against tick infestations for 8 months for its repellent effect (anti-feeding) (Ixodes ricinus, Rhipicephalus sanguineus) and its acaricidal effect (death of the parasite) (Ixodes ricinus, Rhipicephalus sanguineus, Dermacentor reticulatus). It is effective against adult larvae, nymphs and ticks.
Ticks present in the dog before treatment may not die in the first 48 hours after application of the collar, so they may remain attached and visible. Therefore, it is recommended to remove existing ticks in the dog prior to the application of the collar. The prevention of new infestations by ticks starts during the first two days after the application of the collar.
The collar indirectly protects against the transmission of the pathogens Babesia canis vogeli and Ehrlichia canis by the tick Rhiphicephalus sanguineus and consequently, the risk of canine babesiosis and canine ehrlichiosis is decreased for 7 months.
Reduction of the risk of infection by Leishmania infantum through transmission by sandflies up to 8 months.
For the treatment of infestation by biting / chewing lice (Trichodectes canis).
