Seresto Collar & Scratching

Recommended Posts

Did anyone see scratching as a result of putting on a Seresto collar? If so, did it go away with time or did you have to stop using it?

Our 2 grey girls have been wearing Seresto collars for the first time & so far for only about 2 weeks. They do scratch more at their necks & less so on the rest of their bodies. As I just posted on another forum about these collars, I'm thinking about cutting them off & throwing them away due to the sometimes serious, non-advertised side effects the chemicals in Seresto can cause. Due to greyhounds' predisposition to developing cancer, I just HATE using any chemical in or on our greys for fleas & ticks or any parasite control. It's more work using an all natural product for pest control, but I'm seriously considering going back to that. Please refer to my other post for more details. I won't re-write that novel here, for all y'alls sakes... :gh_run2

What are these supposed side effects you speak of? My understanding is that these collars are very safe; a dog could ingest one and be fine. I too hate the use of chemicals, but I'm much more concerned about the very real risk of Lyme disease than the chance that they'll get cancer down the road. If you live in a place where your exposure to ticks is low then it may make sense to try natural remedies, but we are exposed to them daily and TBDs are prevalent here. After I put the collars on the girls I found 3 dead ticks in my bed that were so small I initially thought they were specks of dirt. I never would have found them in Skye's thicker coat.

 

Turns out the scratching was coincidental. No side effects that we've noticed.
