I mean you could save quite a few dollars, and after all flea collars for dogs are more or less the same, aren’t they?
Even though lovable, small dogs are harder to manage. They fall sick often. They are also prone to flea and tick infestations because of their love for the outdoors. If yours have the latter problem, do not fret. Do not rush to your local veterinarians practice also. Purchase this DavesPestDefense Seresto Dog Flea and Tick Collar instead. Perfect for small dogs, it has a light and comfortable design that measures around 28-1/3-inches long. It also has a durable and adjustable design that fits and protects up to 18-pound dogs. You can even cut it if needed without lowering its value.
Last year we applied a flea collar to our 2 dogs, and within a day our 50 lb lab/sheppard cross became restless, drooling, coughing, and not eating. She was very withdrawn, which is not her usual behaviour. We removed the collar, and she became better by the next morning. We removed the other collar from the other dog, and just did vigilant tick removal every day…The owner of the pet store said that this brand was a big “strong”. This year, we bought a different brand (Zodiac), and within 30 mins, the same dog started the same behaviour as described above. We immediately removed the collar, and she seems better. It is only now that we are reading about the side effects, and I can’t believe that this is allowed to go onto our pets. I should have known when the label says that children cannot handle the collars. I am thinking that the dog is exhibiting signs of a Cholinergic Crisis, and just wanted other dog owners to watch for the same thing. Thanks for your advice regarding natural products, will try them. (small flea problem now… ticks are done with…) Thanks.. julie
