You see, I've found an alternative to the drops I usually give him. It was always hard to put the drops on him, unlike JR, because of his fluffiness. I found Seresto™, Bayer HealthCare's genius product. Seresto™ is available for both cats and dogs and boasts easy application and something we haven't seen in the flea and tick prevention market in the US.
This innovative collar consists of a patented polymermatrix releases minimal doses of imidacloprid and flumethrin in response to friction to maintain the necessary level of active ingredient. The result is up to a continuous 8 months of protection against fleas and ticks (Deer ticks, American dog dicks, brown dog ticks, and Lone Star ticks) in cats and dogs. It not only protects but also has to ability to kill ticks and fleas.
I haven't seen anything on BabyPom in the months that we've had the collar on. Granted, we just went through winter and albeit, a mild winter, but nothing has cropped up to my relief. The upside to the collar lies not only in its ease of use but also the fact that there is no powder on it. I've tried a collar before that flaked everywhere. It was insane to clean up. No worries about messes here with Seresto™.
The price point of $70 is reasonable for 8 months of treatment and quite comparable to the cost of monthly treatments so it's a great alternative to those in the market now. Well worth it for a peace of mind and long-term flea and tick prevention for our furry friends. By the way, once you set up an automated reminder on their site for the collar change, you'll be able to download a $20 mail-in-rebate, making the collar only $50.
