Instructions
Recommended Dosage

For prevention of heartworm disease, Bravecto Plus should be administered at 2-month intervals. Bravecto Plus may be administered year-round without interruption or at a minimum should be administered at 2-month intervals beginning at the cat’s first seasonal exposure to mosquitoes and continuing until the cat’s last seasonal exposure to mosquitoes. If a dose is missed and a 2-month interval between doses is exceeded, administer Bravecto Plus immediately and resume the dosing every 2 months. When replacing a monthly heartworm preventative product, the first dose of Bravecto Plus should be given within one month of the last dose of the former medication.

Storage Instructions

Do not store above 77°F (25°C). Store in the original package in order to protect from moisture. The pouch should only be opened immediately prior to use.

FAQ

Why Bravecto Plus?

Bravecto Plus for Cats is the newest parasite product designed exclusively for your cats. Its unique formula treats parasites for a longer duration.

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 life-cycles, so they can come in with you from outside, and hang around to attach to your pet.

    Yes, it’s sticky, but it WORKS!

    By on

    When I moved back into my college apartment after being home for the summer, my roommate had not treated his cat for fleas. Mind had Frontline, and it did absolutely nothing. A bath and multiple Capstar pills later, she was flea-free, and I gave her Cheristin. She got fleas again even with this medicine because they must’ve been dormant in our house or his cat still had them. Finally, after using this, I haven’t seen one single flea! No more flea dirt on my bed, and I’ve brushed her with the flea comb multiple times and haven’t found anything. This is very sticky, though, and it did make my cat’s hair a little gross, but after it was on for a couple days, I just washed the residue out, and she When I moved back into my college apartment after being home for the summer, my roommate had not treated his cat for fleas.

    Not a good medication for my cat

    By on

    I thought this would be the answer to my cat Tivy’s issue with these topical medications and so did my veterinarian since you only need to administer it once every eight weeks. I deal with a lot of anxiety trying to pin my cat down since she hates the application process so much. I was using Revolution before and it was difficult to administer but Bravecto is even harder since there is so much more product. I had to give it two or three times to administer it completely. Tivy went crazy grooming herself and since she is a long haired cat her fur became matted and I had to cut out the matting. I am sending the medication back to my vet.

    Bravecto Works!

    By on

    My cat used to get fleas, ticks and sometimes mites. Bravecto got rid of those pesky creatures and his coat is shiny! He is much happier. My vet originally recommended it and I now get it through Chewy.

    Happy Cats

    By on

    I am raising my cats naturally, only feed species appropriate diet allow them to roam the outdoors like a cat should and not over vaccinating them. The only problems is we have ticks in our region. My cats dread the day when they have there topical spot put on. The previous topicals I have used stated they worked on ticks but I would always have to remove ticks weekly from at least one of them. The last 2 month (first try) my cats have not had a single tick and they roam the same area. My cats and I are very happy with this product

    yucky mess

    By on

    no directions on how to open, VERY sticky, hard to get all of it out. even being an every other month (altho i thought it said every 3 months in the ad) application, it is not worth the nastiness. even my fingers stuck together!

    6 NOT 12 times

    By on

    At the recommendation of my trusted, caring vet, Sunshine, Brother and Bobby now receive their flea Rx 6 times yearly instead of 12. Product has worked wonderfully.

    Great Product!

    By on

    Bravecto Plus works great for preventing ticks and fleas. We live in the woods, and my cat is mostly outdoors except at night. It's important that the flea and tick protection works really well since she comes into our house--and we have a dog. But the treatment we use also needs to be complete for other parasites. I was concerned about heartworm for my cat, and this covers is all. It's easy to use and I don't have to terrorize her every month with a treatment. So happy with this product. It's a little bit oily compared with other products I've used, but I can live with that since it's every 2 months.

    Works quickly and easy!!

    By on

    My veterinarian gave us the first dose of Medicine. Which work great in the three months time I knew we would need more because of the hot summer months that were coming. And when I checked with Chewy and saw how much cheaper the medicine was it was great to get it from chewy. We have not had a problem with the medicine and she likes it no fleas no tics it's great.

    So far so good

    By on

    No signs of fleas on our kitten. This doesn’t smell nearly as strong as Advantage. Plus I love that we’ll get two months out of it. Less wrestling!
