    PROTECTION

    EXTEND A FAST-ACTING TREATMENT FOR MORE TIME TOGETHER.

    With Bravecto® you can give your dog longer lasting protection than traditional monthly treatments – and stop worrying about:

    • Feeling guilty for missing a monthly treatment because of everything else on your mind
    • Chasing down your dog to apply treatments to its skin
    • Keeping your dog away from your family while the traditional topical treatment you applied dries
    • Having to wait for over 24 hours for protection to start working
    • Delaying application because you don’t want to put yourself or your dog through the stress

    Just one Bravecto® chewable starts killing in just 2 hours,1 and provides up to 12 full weeks of continuous protection. Plus, Bravecto®’s active ingredient is also a completely new compound, so there is no known insect or tick resistance to it – making protection worry-free.

    With such fast-acting, continuous and innovative protection, you gain the most powerful defense available in a chew against a flea infestation on your pet or in your home. Studies show that it takes about 3 months to drive a flea infestation into “extinction” in the home environment.2 Monthly treatments can add to your stress during an infestation by requiring you to reapply the treatment every month to ensure continuous protection until the fleas are driven out. And, what if you accidentally miss an application or if the treatment allows fleas to lay eggs before it is reapplied? It could mean your home is never free of fleas.

    With Bravecto®’s long-lasting efficacy against adult fleas, you can potentially drive fleas to “extinction” in your household with just one treatment.3

    HEALTH

    LOOK OUT FOR THE ONE THAT'S ALWAYS LOOKING OUT FOR YOU.

    Parasiticide sales and market size data suggests that directions from the vet to the owner to apply treatments monthly are often not followed 4 – on average, dogs only receive protection from fleas and ticks 2,8 months out of the year. That means that, for nearly 9 months every year, many dogs are at risk for infestations – and may have an increased risk of exposure to the diseases that fleas and ticks carry. This is a big problem, as ticks are known to carry multiple infections that can lead to greater health risks.

    And, as wildlife populations, forest habitats and weather patterns change,5 ticks have expanded into new territories – making them more prevalent worldwide than ever before.

    With just one Bravecto® chew, fleas and ticks don’t stand a chance. Protect your dog from irritations and reduce the risk of tick-borne diseases with a chew that provides nearly a full-year coverage in just 4 doses. Keep your dog healthier, longer with the first and only chew that lasts nearly 12 full weeks – that’s nearly 3X longer than any other chewable or topical treatment available.

    Only your vet or vet shop can provide this length of protection from flea- and tick-borne diseases. Ask your vet about Bravecto® today.

    BRAVECTO® FAQs

    Get quick answers to some of the most frequently asked questions – or contact your vet to learn more about Bravecto®.

    • Why is Bravecto® only available through veterinarians or veterinary retail outlets (vet shops)?

      The veterinarian is the expert on pet health and can advise on the best and most appropriate treatments for pets.

    • How does Bravecto® kill fleas and ticks?

      After you give your dog Bravecto®, it quickly reaches tissue fluids just under your dog's skin. The moment fleas and ticks attach to start feeding, they make contact with bodily fluids and ingest fluralaner, the active ingredient in Bravecto®. Exposure to fluralaner paralyzes the fleas and ticks and then kills them shortly after. Bravecto® starts working in just 2 hours. Within 12 hours of treatment, 100 % of exposed fleas and ticks are dead. Bravecto kills fleas, prevents flea infestations and kills common ticks (Ixodes ricinus, Dermacentor variabilis, Dermacentor reticulatus, Rhipicephalus sanguineus and Haemaphysalis elliptica) for up to 12 weeks.

    • My dog is taking some medications for another condition as well right now.
      Is it safe to give her Bravecto®?

      It is always best to discuss all of your dog's treatments, whether prescription or over-the-counter supplements, with your veterinarian as they are your pet's health care expert.

    • Can I give Bravecto® my to cat?

      Bravecto® is not approved for use in cats.

    • How palatable is Bravecto®?

      In a US field study where dogs were treated at home, over 93% of dogs ate the tablet voluntarily—either by itself or with food.5

    • What time of day should I give it to my dog?

      Bravecto® can be given to your dog any time of the day.

    • Do Bravecto® chewables contain wheat or gluten?
