Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an amazing product! I have a 4 year old pit bull. At first we were giving him the Bravecto chew, he hated it! No mater what I did (added to steak, chicken, pill pockets, etc) he would sniff it out and refuse to take it. I ended up having to force feed him bits, shoving it down his throat. Believe me, it's not easy wrestling with the jaws of a 80 lb pit. Anyway, all of that is in the past! We've switched over to the topical, it's amazing! Doesn't even know I'm putting it on him!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cannot open tube I thought I was ordering the chewables but got the topical solution by mistake. Could not get the lid off the tube and probably wasted half before I finally cut the bottom off the tube and got what little was left on my dog. The chewables are great. The topical solution is a waste of money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Happy this is available! Bravecto works great but I think it causes my dog nausea, he flat out refuses the chewables and can't keep them down if I mix it in his food. I think this is a new product because my Vet was not aware of it and wanted to give my dog a flea collar and was not a option. It's also cheaper than the chewables, Im so grateful my dog can continue to benefit from bravecto without the side effects!
