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.

    My dog will not eat the bravecto chewies so the vet recommended this item. It last for 3 months and isn't greasy like the others on the market. Also my little girl had no itching or reaction to the application site. This is my second purchase of this item and for the first 3 months no ticks!

    The Best I have Found for Flea Allergies

    By on

    Bravecto was recommended by an animal dermatologist who was trying to get to the bottom of a long-term skin problem with my dog. She was treated for extreme allergic reactions to any exposure to fleas with a term of Prednisone, and antibiotics. Bravecto has made a big difference in keeping those fleas away. I like that it is every 3 months too so the price is actually very good when you consider it is like buying 3 of the monthly flea treatments.

    Bravecto takes care of Mississippi fleas and ticks

    By on

    My dog Patch is mainly an outside pet in Mississippi and has always attracted lots of ticks. We have used tick medicine that is a liquid applied to the back of his body. Sometimes worked a little but never well. Veterinarian recommended using Bravecto. Used Bravecto about 3 weeks ago and he was coverd in ticks and some fleas. The ticks and fleas were gone within a few days. He has not had a single tick since it was given to him. It is the Best I have ever used. I hope it continues for 3 months as advertised. If it does will continue using it. Chewy had the best price I could find with free shipping and auto ship in 3 months when it was prescribed to use again.

    So far, so good

    By on

    We have used Bravecto tablets for several years with great results. However our one dog occasionally would throw up within an hour or two and would need redosed. Way too expensive for that. Drops were the perfect option. Applied easily with no reaction. Flea/tick season is just starting here in PA, so we will see if this works as well and for as long as the tablets.

    First impression

    By on

    Just applied the product two days ago....and he showed no reaction to it....which is a great thing since the reason we are using it was the reactions he was having to Nexgard. Will check back in after 2 mos to update whether it was effective in keeping him flea and tick free or not.
