For as long as I have been a dog owner, and it has been a really long time, I’ve only ever had a dog get fleas once, and it was not a pleasant or inexpensive experience. Of course, we didn’t discover our dog had them until he was already at the groomer’s.
Since that day, I have learned my lesson and have done my best to protect our pets. Now that we have Balty, the dog who likes to chew up and eat everything and anything he can, I’ve been looking into the best and most efficient way to keep him protected.
I was recently introduced to a product called BRAVECTO® (Fluralaner), a tasty chewable extended duration flea and tick control that provides protection from fleas and ticks for up to 12 weeks*.
I love the idea of BRAVECTO because it is a ‘treat’ I can give to Balty and just like that, he is protected. Yes, all it takes is 1 tasty chew for up to 12 weeks of flea and tick protection* and it starts killing fleas within 2 hours and kills 100% of fleas within 12 hours. If you ask me, that sounds a lot better than dealing with a flea bath and everything else that comes with a case of the fleas!
With BRAVECTO we only need to remember just 4 doses a year* compared to 12 with monthly products – more gaps can mean more chances to see parasites.
BRAVECTO kills fleas, prevents flea infestations, and kills ticks (black-legged tick, American dog tick, and brown dog tick) for 12 weeks and kills lone star ticks for 8 weeks. That’s nearly 3 times longer protection than a monthly treatment!!
BRAVECTO is FDA Approved
It is only available from your veterinarian or veterinary clinic. BRAVECTO is approved only for dogs 6 months or older because it is prescribed based on weight. Puppies under 6 months of age growsrapidly and their weights change too much over the 12-week treatment period.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
The most common adverse reactions recorded in clinical trials were vomiting, decreased appetite, diarrhea, lethargy, polydipsia, and flatulence. BRAVECTO has not been shown to be effective for 12-weeks’ duration in puppies less than 6 months of age. BRAVECTO is not effective against lone star ticks beyond 8 weeks after dosing.
