FAQ

How is Bravecto different from other chewable or topical flea and tick treatments?

Bravecto is the only flea and tick treatment to last 12 weeks* with one convenient chew or topical dose. That means nearly 3X longer lasting protection than common monthly treatments. The long-lasting efficacy breaks the flea life cycle and drives fleas into extinction with one dose. And, Bravecto kills ticks faster, killing 100% of attached ticks in 12 hours – whereas other treatments can take over 48 hours.

Why should I treat my cat for fleas and ticks if it never goes outside?

Your cat doesn't need to go outside to be at risk for fleas and ticks. Cats can be exposed to fleas and ticks from dogs within the household. However, even cats without dog siblings can be at risk. You can carry fleas inside on your clothes and shoes – and the larvae and pupae can hide within your home for weeks before hopping on your cat. If you live in an apartment complex, fleas can move from one apartment to the next. And, certain ticks are now known to survive indoors throughout their lifecycles, so they can come in with you from outside, and hang around to attach to your pet.

How does Bravecto kill fleas and ticks

After you give your pet Bravecto, it quickly reaches tissue fluids just under your dog's or cat's skin. When fleas and ticks feed, they ingest Bravecto and die. Bravecto Chew for Dogs starts killing fleas (Ctenocephalides felis) within 2 hours, and kills ticks (Ixodes ricinus) within 12 hours. Bravecto Chew for Dogs kills fleas, prevents flea infestations, and kills ticks (black-legged tick, American dog tick and brown dog tick) for 12 weeks. Bravecto Chew for Dogs also kills lone star ticks for 8 weeks. Bravecto Topical Solution for Cats kills 100% of fleas within 8 hours. Apply Bravecto Topical Solution for Cats to the base of the skull for full-body protection for 12 weeks. Bravecto Topical Solution for Cats kills fleas, prevents flea infestations, and kills ticks (black-legged tick) for 12 weeks. Bravecto Topical Solution for Cats also kills American dog ticks for 8 weeks.

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.

How safe is Bravecto Chew for Dogs and Bravecto Chew for Cats?

Bravecto has a wide margin of safety in dogs who weigh at least 4.4 lbs. and cats who weigh at least 2.6 lbs. It is also approved for puppies and kittens aged 6 months or older.

Bravecto Chew for Dogs is approved for use in breeding, pregnant, and lactating dogs.

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

There are no problems reported in field trials in dogs and cats that received Bravecto alongside other commonly used medicines. However, your veterinarian is your pet's health care expert, so it is always best to discuss all of your pet's treatments with them, whether prescription or over-the-counter supplements.

Does water, grooming or hair length have an effect on how Bravecto chew works?

Immediately bathing, shampooing, or swimming should not affect how well Bravecto Chew works, as it is not a topical treatment. Coat length and grooming or brushing also have no impact on how well it works.

Do Bravecto Chews for Dogs Tablets contain wheat or gluten?

No.

Will Bravecto kill ticks and fleas that are already on my dog or cat?

Yes.

Is Bravecto Chew for Dogs approved for use in breeding/pregnant/lactating dogs?

Yes. Bravecto is approved for use in breeding, pregnant, and lactating dogs.

Can the Bravecto Chew be crumbled?

The product insert states that Bravecto should be administered orally as a single dose. In the case that a chew is broken or crumbles, it should be assured that the dog still receives the whole dose.

Can the Bravecto Chew be broken up and given with food?

Bravecto Chew for Dogs should be given with food. If a chew is broken, it should be assured that the dog still receives the whole dose.

Is there a Bravecto Chew for Cats?

Not at this time.

How do I apply the Bravecto Topical to my cat?

Apply the dose to one spot on the skin on the back of the neck (push back fur if necessary). This will provide full body protection for 12 weeks.

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 the dog vomits after taking the Bravecto Chew?

If vomiting occurs, check with your veterinarian to decide whether to re-dose or not; however, if an otherwise healthy dog vomits within 3 hours of receiving Bravecto, it is recommended that the dog be re-dosed. To help ensure that the dog does not vomit again, it is suggested to wait 24 hours until re-dosing.

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.

A dog received hid dose earlier than the 12 weeks. Is that okay?

It is always best to discuss your pets' medical treatment with your veterinarian. However, Bravecto has a high margin of safety. In safety studies, Bravecto was tested in healthy dogs and puppies at up to 5X the recommended dose at 8-week intervals for 3 treatments. Therefore, no adverse effects are expected if dogs are inadvertently treated twice with the recommended dose within 12 weeks, but please contact your veterinarian.

Is Bravecto recommended by veterinarians?

Yes. Bravecto Chew for Dogs is vet recommended for puppies and dogs 6 months of age or older who weigh at least 4.4. lbs., and Bravecto Topical for Cats is vet recommended for kittens and cats 6 months of age or older who weigh at least 2.6 lbs.

  • Works great!

    By on

    Bravecto works great and it’s nice not having to give it to my dog once a month. The only issue I have is my one dog has a sensitive stomach and gastro issues so he’s not able to digest it and throws it up within an hour. My other dog who has no medical issues does great on it. She doesn’t mind the taste either and is very picky.

  • Superior product

    By on

    We have been using Bravecto for a couple years now and have had no trouble with ticks on the dog. He is outside with me a good deal of the time and loves to run through the fields. We occasionally take care of my daughters dog and she goes wherever our dog goes. She is on a tick preventative too but it isn't Bravecto. This evening I pulled 11 active ticks off her. Bentley had no active ticks at all! Both dogs were out the better part of the day with me.

  • Dog hates the flavor.

    By on

    It’s always a fight to get him to take it. It must have awful smell cause as soon as it’s out of the box he won’t eat anything thinking I put some in it. I have to crush it and wait till he’s hungry. Usually the next day and then it’s still a fight to get him to eat it all. It’s expensive so I hate that it tastes so bad. I wonder if I’m wasting my effort and money trying to crush and disguise it.

  • Expensive, but worth the price.

    By on

    Compared to flea collars and monthly applications of topical flea treatments Bravecto is the best thing I have found for my Australian Shepard. Three months of treatment in one soft chewable pill, that she thinks is a treat and gobbles down, saves the hassle of monthly topical treatments and greasy fur. We love Bravecto!

  • Dog hates the taste

    By on

    While I’m sure this works wonderful, my dog absolutely hates the taste and won’t eat it. I chop it up in tiny pieces and mix it with peanut butter and she drools the whole time she tastes the medicine. Always a struggle getting her to take it.

  • Works like a charm!

    By on

    I have 2 Pitties, 75lbs & 89lbs. I have had them on this for well over 3-4 yrs if not longer. They are inside dogs, but go to the lake, park, woodsy trails, everywhere and sleep in my daughters bed and we NEVER have any signs or issues with fleas nor ticks. We live in the beautiful Kentucky blue lands, but it's full of ticks, but we also had them on it when we lived in Oklahoma, and Kansas, and has never failed us! I feel it's almost a super power treat considering how effective it is and the risks and outcome that occur when they are not protected from fleas, ticks, etc...TEAM BRAVECTO!!!

  • Chewy is the best

    By on

    My dogs definitely prefer the chewable tablet As opposed to that stinky stuff on their backs. They would leave the room when I got it out and put on my gloves. This is so much easier and only have to give it once every 12 weeks

  • We Love Bravecto!

    By on

    First time trying it my dog thought this was a treat and ate it right up. Second time around, we had to give it with peanut butter because she wasn't as eager to eat it. This had been the case with pretty much all oral "medication" e.g heartworm prevention, so, nothing new. It's so nice to have an oral flea/tick med AND we only have to give every 3 months! To top it all off, we were in the North Woods this summer and didn't find a single tick on her. Wish I could say it was the same case for us humans! This stuff works great.

    I live in Florida and I've used this product for years. It has kept my Golden Retriever free from fleas and ticks. A bit expensive but worth it.
