Beware of Fake Collars

Be aware of fake and imitation collars

As Seresto® has increased in popularity amongst pet owners, it has become a target by fraudsters; looking to cash in on pet owners’ efforts to keep their pet protected from fleas and ticks by selling them fake or imitation collars.

Purchasing a fake or imitation collar will be ineffective against flea and tick protection and will cost you more in the long run.

Your pet’s health and protection are the most important things to us. So, we’ve created this page to help make it easier for you to purchase a genuine Seresto® collar.

Genuine Seresto® flea and tick collars can only be purchased through your local vet clinic, pet store or authorised online retailer.  Ask for it by name.
