HOW TO APPLY
One collar per animal to be fastened around the neck. Remove collar from protective bag directly before use. Unroll collar and make sure that there are no remnants from the plastic connectors inside the collar.
Insert end of the collar through the buckle. Adjust the collar around the animal's neck without tightening it too tight (as a guide, it should be possible to insert 2 fingers between the collar and the neck). Pull excess collar through the loop(s) and cut off any excess length extending 1 inch (2 cm) beyond the loop(s).
After application of the collar, three reflector clips may be fixed permanently to the collar to increase the animal's visibility in the dark. Take the clips out of the bag. The clips should be evenly distributed on the non-overlapping part of the collar. The clips are correctly applied when a clicking sound is heard. For safety reasons once the reflectors are fixed to the collar the clasp closes permanently and cannot be re-opened.
The collar should be worn continuously for the 8 month protection period. Check periodically and adjust fit if necessary, especially when puppies are rapidly growing.
This collar is designed with a safety-closure mechanism. In the unlikely event of a cat being trapped, the cat's own strength is sufficient to widen the collar to allow for quick release.
Replace the collar after 8 months for optimal tick and flea protection.
Kills fleas which may cause flea allergy dermatitis (FAD) or flea bite hypersensitivity (FBH).
Seresto kills existing fleas on cats within 24 hours. Reinfesting fleas are killed within 2 hours with protection against further flea infestation lasting eight (8) months. Pre-existing pupae in the environment may continue to emerge for six (6) weeks or longer depending upon the climatic conditions. Seresto aids in control of flea larvae in the cat's surroundings following contact with a Seresto-treated cat.
Ticks already on the cat prior to treatment may not be killed immediately after collar application and may remain attached and visible. At the time of application remove ticks already on the cat. The prevention of infestations with new ticks starts within 48 hours after application of the collar.
Re-infesting ticks are repelled and/or killed as quickly as 6 hours.
Aids in the treatment and control of Sarcoptic mange.
Seresto is water-resistant and remains effective following a shampoo treatment or after exposure to rain or sunlight. Under normal conditions, effectiveness lasts for 8 months. In order to maintain an eight-month duration, cats must not be bathed more than once per month. For cats that get bather once a month or more, the control duration is reduced to 5 months.
Occasionally slight itching may be observed in animals that are not used to wearing collars in the first few days after fitting. Ensure that the collar is not fitted too tightly. Slight hair loss and mild skin reactions due to the mechanical irritation of the collar may occur at the application site which usually recover within 1 or 2 weeks without the need for collar removal. If you notice any serious effects or other effects not mentioned in this leaflet, please inform your veterinarian.
In case of loss of collar, a new collar may be applied immediately.
Do not attach a leash to the collar as this may cause breakage.

Avoid contact with eyes, skin or clothing. Wash thoroughly with soap and cold water after fitting the collar. People with sensitivity reactions to the ingredients of the collar should avoid contact with the collar. Choking hazard. Contains small parts. Do not place collar or reflectors in mouth.

The Bayer Polymer Matrix System ensures that both active ingredients are slowly and continuously released in low concentrations from the collar towards the animal. This avoids peak concentrations and ensures that concentrations of both active ingredients are present in the dog's haircoat during the entire efficacy period. The active ingredients spread from the site of direct contact over the entire skin surface.
