Bravecto is a flea control chewable for long lasting protection. The oral treatment is used for the treatment and prevention of flea and tick infestations in dogs. It is also helpful in the prevention of flea allergy dermatitis. Bravecto starts killing in 2 hours and continues to kill fleas and ticks for full 12 weeks. The oral chew is effective and easy to dose. It works inside out so it is safe for children to play around after treatment. Bravecto is recommended to use in puppies above 8 weeks and 2 kg body weight.
What is Bravecto?
Bravecto is the first oral chew to provide up to 12 weeks of protection against fleas and ticks. One chew provides broad-spectrum and long-lasting protection that starts to kill fleas within 2 hours and controls 4 tick species (black-legged tick, American dog tick, brown dog tick, and lone star tick). Bravecto eliminates current flea infestations and prevents new ones from developing for 12 weeks.
With one chew, Bravecto is easier to give and less to worry about for you!
• One chew is effective for 12 weeks – nearly 3 times longer than monthly doses
• Starts working within 2 hours to kill fleas and treat and control ticks
• No more monthly dosing, messy topicals or fussy collars!
• Tasty oral chew your dog will take as a treat
• Unlike topical applications, there’s no need to separate pets after giving your dog Bravecto
How it works:
After giving your dog Bravecto, the medication quickly reaches tissue fluids under your dog’s skin. When fleas and ticks feed on your dog, they ingest Bravecto and die.
Bravecto kills fleas, prevents flea infestations and kills ticks (black-legged tick, American dog tick, and brown dog tick) for 12 weeks. Bravecto also kills lone star ticks for 8 weeks.
