BRAVECTO FLEA & TICK PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Bravecto is a long lasting pork flavored flea and tick treatment for dogs of all sizes in a chewy tablet form. Most dogs love it and act like they’re getting a treat when it’s time for another dose.
DANGER OF FLEAS
Dogs with an infestation of fleas suffer from irritated skin which is made worse by constant scratching. Scratching leads to skin and blood infections and as well as other illnesses.
Fleas can jump from the dog to infest the home and transmit diseases to humans and other pets living in the home.
Once their 4-stage breeding cycle is complete and repeating, fleas can be very difficult to eradicate.
DANGER OF TICKS
Ticks are another problem in Australia. Two different types affect canines, the paralysis tick and the brown dog tick.
Both types of ticks can lead to death or at the very least, misery for your dog.
Like fleas, ticks can spread disease to animals and humans so it’s best to prevent bites in the first place.
Lyme disease is a big worry with tick bites.
BENEFITS OF BRAVECTO FLEA AND TICK TREATMENT
Studies show that one dose of Bravecto quickly, safely and effectively kills fleas and ticks within 12 hours. Bravecto provides effective control of fleas on dogs within 8 hours of administration and provides effective control of pre-existing infestations of paralysis ticks within 24 hours.
Because it works so quickly, ticks don’t have time to transmit Borrelia Burgdorferi, the spirochete that causes Lyme Disease.
Using long lasting Bravecto flea and tick treatment is the solution to an infestation as well as a preventative. It makes more sense to prevent a problem than to wait until it gets dangerous for your dogs and your family.
Bravecto is a pork flavored chewy tablet that dogs enjoy. It can be given with or without food or disguised with food if your dog happens to be the suspicious type.
Because it’s hydrolyzed, which means it breaks down easily, it’s safe for pets with allergies.
As a chewy tablet that dogs ingest, there is no waiting around for a topical treatment to dry or soak in to the skin which is good since pets don’t always do well when separated from their family pack, even briefly.
It’s safe for puppies 8 weeks old and older.
Bravecto flea and tick treatment does not contain neoincotinoids, therefore no risk to honeybees.
It can be given to your pregnant or lactating pet.
It is safe when given in tandem with heart worm treatments such as Interceptor or Milbemax.
SAFETY OF BRAVECTO FLEA AND TICK TREATMENT
Everyone wants to know about Bravecto side effects. The most common side effects reported include mild but quickly resolving stomach upset, decreased appetite, diarrhea and gas. Your dog may feel somewhat lethargic or experience increased thirst.
Bravetco flea and tick treatment side effects experienced tend to resolve quickly, however, if you feel your dog is experiencing more than usual negative effects or it doesn’t seem to improve, see a vet.
