Anybody tried Soresto flea collars?
Advertisement
Concerned about adverse effects.

I'd rather use a collar than a pill, or the spot on stuff, because poisoning the fur sounds safer than poisoning the blood of the dog.

chuckle

Last year I used holistic powder I made out of:
Diatomaceous earth
yarrow powder
Neem powder
eucalyptus oil.

It worked somewhat but I had to apply it every two or three days, and in order to make it I had to buy capsules of the yarrow and neem, and open them to shake out the powder.

Expensive and labor intensive.

I've tried benefecial nematodes, with limited success. Sprayed it into the lawn It seemed to delay the outbreak, but not stop it.

Last week somebody showed me a happy dog with the Soresto collar, but I looked it up and found a few adverse reactions online.

Sounds risky.

I gave the dogs Sentinel, but it didn't work.(Or not well enough)

So I gave them one dose of capstar, and that has given them relief for the last week or so...takes time for it to get real bad....

But still looking for safest, most effective solution.

Fleas do hate eucalyptus, thinking about planting some of those trees, and whacking branches off and laying them around the yard....

Worth researching.

Euculyptus is invasive to California, haven't checked the rules in Oklahoma.

Pennyroyal is supposed to repel fleas too, but I didn't plant any because it can cause sleep problems and when I heard about it I had apnea problems.

Might be worth doing now.

Apnea symptoms went away after I avoided WIFI.

RE: Anybody tried Soresto flea collars?
I have used this product on cats and dogs for years with no adverse affects - and no fleas. It contains the same ingredient (Imidacloprid) as Bayer Advantpiage II - tho, in a more diluted form (1.47 vs 9.10%). I use 1-2cc on my cats and 3-6cc on my dogs. If they're still scratchin' a few days later, I dose 'em again. This is the same type of product (brands vary) that the rescues and shelters use for fleas ... they can't afford ridiculous pet store retail prices. I got a pint of this last week for 9.99, delivered. It willl last me for over two years.

Don't take my anon word for it, research it for yourself. Imidacloprid - fleas - tree shrub drench.

I forgot to mention - it gets rubbed into their fur/skin. Once dried, the pets are waterproof re: fleas. It won't wash off as it's systemic.

Thank you so much!

I will carefully check it out before I try it.

Are you putting it on their shoulders or misting it all over?

Use a 6cc syringe without the twist top (Tractor Supply has them for pennies).

On the cats, I put it all between their shoulders and make sure I rub it in real good with the side of the syringe. They don't mind it, but there is no place on a cat where their tongue can't reach. I try not to have them lick it while wet, but I have seen them do it. Again, I have seen no adverse reactions.

On the dogs, which require more liquid, I squirt a line down their back and then carefully rub it in with the side of the syringe. Go slow, because if you go too fast, it will form a bead and just drip off their coat. Dogs can't lick their back - and really don't care about it anyhow. I take them for a walk after dosing and it dries rather quickly.

The trick to this product is to get it on their skin where it can be absorbed. Just having on their fur is no good.

because poisoning the fur sounds safer than poisoning the blood of the dog.

I understand your concern and too have tried other methods of flea control. My favorite is Diatomaceous Earth (DE), but it's messy and a respiratory concern. I dust my carpet once or twice a year. Even with the vacuuming, some stays down in the carpet to control any errant fleas or larvae, forever. But it just isn't practical for the animals. One dip in the creek, and the fleas are back. I have read bad things about the collars and being my dogs are in my house and on my furniture and on me - I don't want the chemicals in my environment. And so, that leaves me with the rub-ons as the only practical solution. The sh*t at the d0llar store doesn't work and I don't trust it anyhow. The only thing I ever used effectively was Advantage II, but I can't afford that, even at Wallyworld (they want ~60.00 for 6 large dog doses that can be spread amongst my cats and dogs, but seriously, sixty bucks for fleas?). Fleas are disgusting, carry worms and disease and are a pain in the ass to get rid of once an infestation starts. While the tree and shrub is a chemical that permeates my pets skin, there are worse things we put on ourselves just to smell good. And so, it's either fleas or tree and shrub. Tree and shrub is the least of the evils - and the cheapest way - of keeping me and my pets safe and comfortable.

... and while we're on the subject, if you aren't dosing your dogs once a month with generic Ivermectin, you're throwing away m0ney.

My 65-100lb dogs get .5cc orally once a month.
