As a pet owner, I know how important it is to do whatever I can to help keep our beloved Balty safe. When it comes to his health and safety, we treat him as though he is one of our kids. Just like we follow what our family doctor says about our kids, when we take Balty to the vet, we follow his recommendations as well.
Flea & Tick Prevention Is No Joke
Protecting Balty from the dangers of nature is something is important to us and that is why we believe it flea and tick prevention. BRAVECTO® is an FDA approved tasty chew that provides protection from fleas and ticks for up to 12 weeks* and it is also what our vet recently recommended to us for Balty.
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.
What to Ask Your Vet
What is new in flea and tick control?
This is important to ask because many products currently being used have been around for 10-20 plus years and you may not know the differences or benefits of some of the newer products. For instance there are now oral products that kill both fleas and ticks, and one product, Bravecto® (fluralaner) that lasts for up to 12 weeks* with just one tasty chew.
What product is best for my dog and my lifestyle?
There are many products available and your veterinarian is the right person to ask which product is best for your specific pet. Some products are easier to administer, dosed more or less frequently, have different types of side effects and even different expectations for efficacy. Feel comfortable asking your veterinarian to explain some of these differences.
Should I use a prescription product or just get a product over-the-counter?
Your veterinarian can explain to you some of the differences so you can make an educated decision. For instance, prescription products have more in depth safety and efficacy study requirements for approval.
What should I expect from my flea and tick control?
You may think your current product is not working because you see fleas and ticks on occasion, but should that be expected with the product you are using? On the flip side, you may think your current product is doing a great job because you don’t see ticks and fleas that often. But can you expect more?
Ask to get more information on BRAVECTO® if you are interested in treating less often with a tasty chew without compromising on safety or efficacy.
