Why Use Seresto?

Seresto Dog Flea & Tick Collars

Can you see it?  


It's the small thing grey band hiding under Dante's orange water collar. That's his Seresto collar!

What is a Seresto Collar?
To sum it up simply: Seresto is a lice, flea and tick collar for both cats and dogs it also aids in the treatment and control of sarcoptic mange. 

But it's way more than that. We've done the messy liquid flea meds and I hate them with a passion of all passions. It was messy, it was stinky, and it left a grease slick on the back of the dogs spine that lasted waaaaayyyy toooo long. It also got on everything, and usually after greasing it down the back of my dogs spines they would shake, and then it got all over everything including me. Thus this process was left to the outdoors only even in the winter it meant having the pups hang on the back deck until I was sure they weren't going to send it spraying all over my living room.

We also tried different brands, and nothing seemed to really stop the ticks when we would go hiking. And trust me I've tried the natural methods too. Different topical essential oil sprays, I've tried rubbing dryer sheets on the dogs, natural herbal wipes, and praying to the tick gods to make them go away! Maybe my dogs just taste that good though...

Initially I was worried Seresto would cost more, but on the contrary it's a better deal. At least it is if you go to Chewy.com


Seresto lasts 8 months and costs $52.24 if you put it on autoship, which we've done so that it arrives every 8 months when I need to replace it. Whereas Frontline which we tried, costs $59.84 on autoship and only has 6 months worth of medicine.

And from our experience it works!

See his Seresto?
What do we like about Seresto?
- It's clean! No more nasty stinky greasy mess on your dogs back.

- It's waterproof, though swimming with it regularly does reduce the life of the collar. Usually we take it off when we go swimming or take a bath. But you don't have to!


- It's pretty safe. Every pet parent must make their own decisions about meds and treatments, but our vet likes Seresto and said that my dog could eat the collar and would end up sick from the plastic not from the medicine. Consult with your personal veterinarian about your pet, this is what works for us.

- It is a slow time released med that is absorbed through the skin, however just being in contact with the collar isn't enough to cause concern. That being said however it is recommended that small children limit contact the first day or so after putting on a brand new collar.

Since using Seresto we've definitely noticed a decline in ticks that actually attach to the dogs. Sometimes the ticks still bite, but usually they are dead when we find them and they fall right off. Occasionally we have to pull one out, but it's loads better than before. This is definitely our favorite way to fight ticks. And usually I can tuck the seresto underneath their collars for pictures, sometimes though we just take them temporarily off.

Thank you Chewy! We love our collars!

Dr.Tim's Natural Clean Tripe!

Dr. Tim's Freeze Dried Treats
Natural Clean Tripe!

"We were sent Dr. Tim's treats from Chewy.com in exchange for an honest review. Dz Dogs only supports products that we feel are relevant to our readers. This blog contains no affiliate links, all thoughts and opinions are our own."


Who doesn't love tripe! Well...me for one, it's usually stinky. The dogs on the other hand super love it! In fact Dante put himself in a sit stay hoping - as I left the room with the bag - that I would come back and reward him.  Dz Dad was laughing so hard about it that I did indeed give in to his big brown puppy dog eyes and go back to give Dante a treat.

"Mom can't possibly say no to these eyes..."
What we love about these treats?

- 100% Freeze Dried Tripe, USDA inspected beef tripe from Wisconsin.
- Made in the USA in Wisconsin! We love to support US product when we can.
- Mess free and easy to break apart for training purposes.
- Scent free? Well, I can't smell it but the dogs certainly can.
- Re-closeable bag.



What would we change?
 - NOTHING -



The dogs happily work for these treats, they are definitely going on my list of must haves for high value rewards like recalls at night during potty time, and whenever someone else is house-sitting the dogs for us.  Dante and Ziva have become a bit accustomed to some of their other regular treats so I plan on hoarding this bag for a while and only pulling it out on special occasions when I really want to get their attention.



Sweet and simple we love these treats!

Health Extension Elk Antlers

Elk Antler Chews!

"We were sent Health Extension Elk Antlers from Chewy.com in exchange for an honest review. Dz Dogs only supports products that we feel are relevant to our readers. This blog contains NO affiliate links, all thoughts and opinions are our own."


Best treat ever!

It's been a month and so far the Dz pups have not finished off these treats. Instead, they seem to enjoy leisurely chewing. Rolling their eyes back, and savoring the antlers slowly as well as proudly carrying their prize through the house showing it off to anyone who pays attention.


While these treats are not cheap, they are all natural high quality USA antlers from free range elk.

Why antlers?
  • Antlers don't splinter.
  • Digestible, and high in iron, glucosamine, potassium, and calcium.
  • Long lasting and odor free.
  • These antlers were naturally shed and came from free range US elk.
Things To Note.
Depending on who you ask you're going to hear conflicting things regarding the safety of giving antlers to your dogs. Some dogs have been known to crack a tooth on such a hard chewing object, so this is definitely something to consider before giving one to your dog. If you have any concerns check in with your veterinarian. Dante and Ziva like to gently chew these and take their time, they don't seem to just CHOMP down so I'm not too worried about it. I wouldn't however give these to an aggressive chewer, that could definitely make for a cracked or broken tooth. 

But like any chew toy, always make sure you supervise your dog and definitely remove/throw it away when it gets small enough to swallow whole.


I love these, they've been a great break for me! I haven't had to purchase any chews all month, and I'm curious as to how long they will last. I'll keep you posted!



Thank you Chewy.com!!
