Bravecto is the product name of the insecticide and acaricide fluralaner, which comes in the form of a chewable tablet for dogs. It is manufactured by MSD Animal Health (Merck Animal Health in the USA). Bravecto® is recommended by vets both for its effectiveness and convenience.
The Bravecto® Chew gives dogs up to three months of continuous protection against ticks and fleas, so pet owners have the peace of mind that these pet pests will be kept at bay. The benefit of Bravecto® lasting for three months or more is that it eliminates pests at all stages of their life cycle, and pet owners only need to remember to update their pets’ treatment three to four times a year.
Please consult with your veterinarian if you are unsure of anything or if you are wanting to try Bravecto for the first time.
Administer tablets at or around the time of feeding for maximum effectiveness.
It can be mixed with food or given by hand since it is very palatable.
For optimal control of tick and flea infestation, Bravecto should be administered at a 12-week interval.
Bravecto can be administered all year round.
