    Bayer’s innovative POM-V flea and tick collar, Seresto, has been awarded Easy to Give status by feline charity International Cat Care.

    The award, which recognises pharmaceutical products that make giving medication to cats easier, was awarded to Seresto due to its simple mode of application, long period of efficacy and unique safety mechanism, making it an ideal choice for efficacious flea and tick prevention.

    Seresto provides up to 8 months of protection against fleas and ticks, offering clients peace of mind when it comes to helping to protect their cat’s health. The collar has two active ingredients: imidacloprid for fleas and flumethrin for ticks. Flumethrin exhibits a repellent mode of action against ticks, allowing them to be repelled and killed before they’ve had a chance to bite1.

    A survey revealed that 98 per cent of vets who trialled Seresto said they are likely to recommend the collar to clients in the future.2

    Antony Ashford, a qualified veterinary nurse, is part of Seresto’s new case study campaign to bring real-life Seresto stories to light.

    Antony explains “I live with three cats: Tiggy, Dillon and Marley. A couple of years ago, I returned home from holiday to a flea infested home, after realising that the cats had missed a flea treatment. Dealing with the infestation was pretty stressful, and after hearing about Seresto, I thought it might be a good solution to the challenges of keeping up with regular flea treatments in a multi-cat household.

    ‘’I have been using Seresto for two years and there has been no sign of fleas on the cats since. I now regularly recommend it to my clients.”

    • World First as Pioneering Fish Skin Graft Saves Dog
      Kristina Kisbee

      A dog suffering from a seriously infected wound and days from death has been saved by pioneering veterinary surgery involving a fish skin graft. The veterinary team at Skeldale Veterinary Centre, James Herriot’s (Alf Wight’s) former practice, used the fish skin as a ‘biological bandage’ to help the wound to heal and to regenerate skin around the dog’s elbow which had been destroyed by an infection.

      The surgery was carried out in August 2018 and is the first time that
