Flea protection


LBPR_MSD-Animal-Health_Bravecto--Media-Factsheet_March-2015_FINAL-APPROVED_PPWHAT: Bravecto® represents a quantum leap forward in tick and flea protection. It is the first and only oral chew to deliver extended protection for three months against fleas and four months against paralysis ticks—all in a single chew.


Full year flea protection is achieved in just four tasty doses of Bravecto – protection at every season. It can be given to a dog at any time of day, however, it is recommended that Bravecto be administered at or around the time of feeding due to its greater absorption into the circulation. Bravecto starts working within hours, providing effective control of fleas within 8 hours of administration and effective control of pre-existing paralysis tick infestations within 24 hours. Bravecto fits easily into gastrointestinal worming programs, where treatments occur every 3 months.


Bravecto is administered orally in a highly palatable chew format. There is no mess to administer and no liquids to spill or transfer. It also won’t wash off or rub off, so dog owners can keep doing things they love with their dog without interruption. Coat length, grooming or brushing have no impact on how Bravecto works.


To date, protection from fleas and deadly paralysis ticks has most commonly been gained from products that require fortnightly or monthly application. As a result, many pet owners may forget to treat, leaving dogs unprotected, and pet owners worried. One dose of Bravecto does what some other products do with three.


It is available for a range of dog breeds and sizes and can be used on puppies from 8 weeks of age weighing at least 2kg. It is also safe to administer to breeding, pregnant and lactating dogs.


Bravecto is available at leading vet clinics across Australia. Dog owners can register for the free Bravecto reminder
email service at www.bravecto.com.au to ensure they don’t miss a dose. The free Bravecto reminder app is available for iOS and Android.
