Seresto® vs. NexGard®, Frontline® Plus, and other flea and tick prevention.

  • Making the choice to help protect your pet from fleas and ticks might be easy, but choosing a product is not. The more informed you are, the easier it will be. Don’t worry — we’ll give you the knowledge you need. Because preventive treatment is showing your pet love.

    Convenient, long-lasting protection.

    Topicals like Frontline® Plus and chewables like NexGard® are monthly, which means you must remember to treat your pet every 30 days to help keep them protected.

    The Seresto® collar provides 8 months of continuous protection from fleas and ticks — so you don’t have to worry about forgetting to treat every month or even every three months.

    Seresto® is also easy to apply, odorless and non-greasy.

  • Not all products kill and repel.

    Fleas and ticks cause painful bites and can transmit deadly diseases. Seresto® works to kill and repel fleas and ticks for 8 continuous months. If a flea or tick is repelled, it cannot bite and potentially transmit dangerous diseases.

    How Seresto® works.

    Thanks to its patented Sustained Release Technology, just one Seresto® collar gives your pet 8 continuous months of flea and tick protection. The two active ingredients slowly and continuously release in low concentrations from within the collar, and — thanks to your pet’s skin and coat — spread from head to toes, even the tail.1

    Chewable flea and tick prevention like NexGard® work systemically, meaning the active ingredients are given orally, then absorb and circulate in the pet's bloodstream. This means that fleas and ticks must bite your pet and ingest the ingredients to die.

    Seresto®, a nonsystemic prevention, works differently. The active ingredients release from the collar and spread across the pet’s coat and skin, repelling and killing fleas and ticks through contact. Which means, fleas and ticks don’t have to bite your dog or cat to die.
