Worried you have bought a fake collar? Here are some tips:

Counterfeiters produce what looks like an exact copy of a product to trick you into buying it. This is an illegal, money making activity with little regard for the quality and effectiveness of the products or the harm they may cause. The fake products might appear like a great deal at the time, as the pricing often seems attractive, but the lack of safe, effective ingredients often leads to treatment or prevention failure, resulting in a much higher long-term cost.

Examples are products that:

  • contain the correct active ingredient, however, either at a dosage that is too high or too low,
  • contain no active ingredients,
  • have false expiry dates,
  • contain an active agent other than the one specified,
  • are wrapped in forged packaging, blisters and/or contain falsified patent information.

The wrong drug, no drug, or bad dosage can pose a serious health risk to both your pet and your family.

Key common features of fake Seresto collars

  • The tin is stickered front and back
  • The tin is too small
  • Poor-quality printing
  • Missing expiry date or Lot number or both
  • The collar smells
  • The collar features a buckle
  • Lot number is missing from the collar
