How long do flea collars last

Customer Question

How long do flea collars last?

That should be labeled on the collar.

Some for a few months, others only for 30 days.


Flea collars are generally not considered that good at flea control anyway. They can be toxic, and just keep fleas off the head area.


I wouldn't recommend them at all.

I would stick with a good topical, and over-the-counter, product like Frontline. Available for dogs and cats.


Good Luck
