Do dogs readily eat the Bravecto Chew?
In a US field study where dogs were treated at home, over 93% of dogs ate the chew voluntarily-either by itself or with food.
Can the Bravecto Chew be broken up and crumbled with food?
BRAVECTO Chew should be given with food. If a chew is broken or crumbles, make sure your dog still receives the whole dose.
Do Bravecto Chew tablets contain wheat or gluten?
Does water, grooming, or hair length have an effect on how a Bravecto Chew works?
No. Even immediate bathing, shampooing, or swimming won't affect how well BRAVECTO Chew works because it's not a topical treatment. Coat length and grooming or brushing also have no impact on how well it works.
Is Bravecto Chewy approved for use in Breeding/Pregnant/Lactating dogs?
Yes. BRAVECTO is approved for use in breeding, pregnant, and lactating dogs.
Can Bravecto be used in Collies?
In a well-controlled laboratory study, BRAVECTO was shown to be safe in collies known to be MDR-1 gene deficient. Collies with the defect were administered 3 times the deliverable dose and had no adverse events.
What happens if my dog vomits after taking Bravecto Chew?
If vomiting occurs, check with your vet to decide whether to redose or not; however, if an otherwise healthy dog vomits within 3 hours of receiving BRAVECTO , it is recommended that the dog be redosed. To help ensure that the dog does not vomit again, it is suggested to wait 24 hours until redosing.
If 4 or more hours have passed before the vomiting occurs, it is likely that the medication has been absorbed and the dog is protected. If the vomiting repeats again, DO NOT give a third chew, and call your veterinarian.
If you suspect that a side effect has taken place as a result of giving the dog BRAVECTO, please report it to Merck Technical Services at 1-800-224-5318, and follow any advice that they provide.
