Reviewing Seresto Flea Collar For Cats

Have A Flea Problem?

In my neck of the woods we are in the full swing of flea and tick season. I have just placed a new flea collar on my cat, the Seresto Flea Collar for cats. I haven't used a collar for many years, mainly because they became hard to find. We had switched to the topical type of flea prevention which was fine but rather on the expensive side when you had to apply it once per month. 

The old type of flea collars for cats were taken off of the market because of the problem of causing neurological problems for our little feline buddies. So, most of us had to find other ways to protect not only our kitty cats but our homes as well. 

Bayer, the aspirin people, have come out with a line of products for cats and dogs and they are making a flea collar that seems promising. I'm giving it a try, anyway. So, far so good.


I really like the convenience of not having to apply any topical stuff once a month. This collar is supposed to work for 8 months. I have been watching carefully and there have been no indications of fleas on my cat and she has not had any adverse effects from wearing the collar. She was not very happy when I first put it on her but she was never very excited when I applied the topical medication on her either.

I also liked that the flea collar comes in a tin can with a nice little pamphlet that tells you how to apply the collar and possible reactions to watch for in your cat. It also has some little clips that you can apply to the collar that will reflect light at night if your cat wanders around the neighborhood. Our cat doesn't go outside at night but it is nice to have them to use if we feel the need. There is also a sticker that you can apply to your calendar to remind you when the 8 months is up.

At first, I thought the pricing was a little high but when I figured it lasts for 8 months it is quite a bit less costly than the monthly topicals that I had to purchase. All in all, we are happy with the flea collar from Bayer.

  1. Oh, my! I had not idea that was the reason they had removed flea collars from the shelves! We use the topical applications for our pups, but I use gloves and can't touch them until they dry afterwards or I will get a sore throat. It is scary to think of what these flea prevention medications may have done to our precious pets in the past. I sure hope this new flea collar by Bayer will prove to be wonderful and safe. I personally love that it will also protect them from ticks. I hate those suckers! I'll have to be sure to share this article with our daughter and my grandkitties. Thanks Bev!

  2. Sounds like a great recommendation for a flea collar for cat owners. When we had our doggie we would give her those tablets from the Vet (we had to trick her into eating them - the little cuttie was too smart for us) - a flea collar would have been a heck of lot easier.
