Pet Owners Begged FTC for Help With Deadly Seresto Flea Collars

But the most heartbreaking complaints in the batch describe allegedly legit flea collars that pet owners claim poisoned their pets and sometimes even killed them. Pet owners were livid with Bayer and now Elanco, the company that bought Bayer Animal Health for $7.6 billion in 2020.

Seresto’s collars have never been recalled. The Environmental Protection Agency approved use of the preventative petwear in the U.S. in 2012, but even employees of that agency had been concerned about reports of adverse reactions from pets, according to documents obtained through FOIA by the Center for Biological Diversity.

I purchased two collars for my doxens. One developed bumps on his head and the other became lethargic, was hitting, could not eat, could not keep down fluids. We removed the collars and with in a couple of hours he was playful, eating and drinking. Never again. I purchased them from my vet and know I will warn others not to use these collars. I demand a full refund plus tax. I cannot find the company to complain so here I am hoping you can help. I read others complaints. I don’t understand why we still have these on the market!
