How to Take Advantage of the Seresto Collar Recall for Your Pet

In March 2021, the most popular brand of flea and tick collars for pets was linked to more than 1,700 pet deaths. It has been known to negatively affect humans, as well. Therefore, it is important that you learn all you can about the and other pet products that are happening right now.

Seresto Flea and Tick collars are available in stores and on Amazon. If you have ever lost a pet soon after using these collars, you may benefit from the recall for them. DoNotPay will be happy to help you get restitution for your loss.

How to File a Claim for Seresto Collar Recalls

The recall kicked in after one very healthy pet wore the collar for less than 24 hours and started having seizures. The pet owner called the police for an escort to help her beloved pet, but ultimately the dog died before help could be received. Some say it isn't the first issue that has been reported, but this one has an owner who will not give up on seeking a recall.

The thing is, pet collars for fleas and ticks often contain pesticides that may cause skin reactions and neurological issues for pets and humans. The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) has been pushing for more than a decade to get changes in regulations regarding these collars, without results. Now Congress and the Federal Courts are involved and there a lawsuit is pending.

Seresto products include Hartz Ultraguard, Hartz InControl, and Longlife. These products contain the pesticide "tetrachlorvinphos". It is a combination of imidacloprid and flumethrin pesticides.

To file a claim against Seresto for health conditions that may have stemmed from their product, you will need to provide evidence that proves it. This may include:

  • Receipts for Purchase
  • Medical or Veterinarian Bills
  • Statements of What Was Medically Wrong
  • Other Evidence You Feel Proves You or Your Pet Suffered

If possible, it is recommended that you get your file from your pet's veterinarian or your doctor indicating that there were certain symptoms that appeared after using the flea and tick collars by Seresto. This may include:

  1. Hair Loss
  2. Skin Rashes
  3. Skin Redness
  4. Stomach Issues (Vomiting and Diarrhea)
  5. Agitation or Other Behavioral Changes
  6. Seizures
  7. Death

It can take time to come up with enough evidence to support your claim, and even longer before you reach a solution.

Where Does the Seresto Collar Recall Stand?

Since Congress has just recently decided to try and get this product off the market to protect pets and their owners, not much has been done. In fact, Seresto still denies that there is a problem with their product, expressing that anytime there are pesticides in use, there is a risk for negative effects. The company also claims that the benefit for most animals outweighs the risk.

Unfortunately, this can make it even harder for you to get the restitution that you deserve. You will have to file your claims and hope that you get in on the lawsuit that is sure to come.

Luckily, DoNotPay is on your side. We can help you file a claim against Seresto if you feel that you or your pet was injured by using these popular flea and tick collars.
