Is Bravecto Safe?

What is Bravecto?

Bravecto is an effective flea and tick prevention that comes in tasty, easy-to-administer chews and non-greasy, easy-to-apply topical solution for dogs and a topical solution for cats. What makes Bravecto different than many other flea and tick preventatives is that Bravecto provides long lasting protection of up to 12 weeks per dose, meaning less chances of missing a dose. Bravecto Chews for Dogs starts killing fleas within 2 hours and controls 4 tick species: black-legged tick (deer tick), American dog tick, brown dog tick, and lone star tick. All Bravecto products eliminate current flea infestations and prevent new ones from developing, protecting your pet from all flea life cycles from egg to adulthood. Additionally, both Bravecto Topical for Dogs and Bravecto Topical for Cats repel fleas and ticks.

How does Bravecto work?

Bravecto's active ingredient is fluralaner, a safe and effective ingredient for killing fleas and ticks and controlling infestations. For Bravecto Chews, when ingested, the medication quickly reaches tissue fluids just below your dog's skin. When fleas and ticks feed on your dog, they ingest the fluralaner and die. For Bravecto Topical for dogs and cats, after topical application, the fluralaner also quickly reaches tissue fluids under the skin, and when fleas and ticks feed on your dog or cat, they die.
