We had never dealt with fleas until we moved to Tennessee. Hot, humid summers make it impossible to escape the little bloodsucking insects. For months we battled flea issues. Our dog, Billy, developed a flea allergy, which made him completely miserable. Just one flea drove him crazy and irritated his skin. I tried homemade flea killers made with essential oils, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, etc. but nothing seemed to work. Sure, Dawn was great in the bath – it killed every single flea but didn’t stop new fleas from coming in. Billy scratched and licked so hard until his white fur turned brown from his saliva. Poor little guy… he was so miserable.
I was super skeptical of a flea collar actually working but I gave Seresto a try. Within three days of applying the collars, our flea issues were gone. Both dogs stopped scratching and appeared more relaxed.The collars are super easy to use. Put them on, mark the date on the calendar, and forget about them for 8 months! We have been using Seresto collars for about three months now and I really appreciate the convenience of not having to apply monthly tick medicine. The dogs don’t even notice the extra collar. The reflective tabs are a nice addition.
This was the day the dogs started wearing the Seresto collars. I spy a flea on Teddy. Three days later the fleas were gone.– Seresto® is non-greasy, odorless, and kills and repels fleas and ticks.
– It’s available in three sizes: large dog, small dog or cat.
– Seresto® is water-resistant and doesn’t need to be removed while bathing or swimming. I still take theirs off just because I don’t want the effectiveness to decrease.
Billy’s skin and fur are looking healthy again. I check the dogs every day but luckily they have been free of fleas and ticks for months. Fingers crossed.

With any dog who has owned me (ha-ha), flea collars nor topical medicines have been successful (I live in SC). Only oral medications have solved the problem. I use a popular veterinary service and pay a monthly fee for the care of my fur-babies. The medicine is included in the service, so it is a little easier on the pocket! I’m glad you found something to alleviate the flea problem for your fur-babies!

Vanessa, our vet mentioned the pill at Billy’s checkup.It’s pricey – $20/pill per dog each month.So far, we’ve been happy with Seresto and at $42 per collar/for 8 months it’s doable.I think Costco has the best deal on those collars. Thanks for reading and commenting… it means a lot to me!
