Bravecto for dogs: the long-lasting tick & flea tablet

Bravecto for dogs - the long lasting tick & flea tablet
Published by .

MSD Animal Health’s Bravecto for dogs and puppies comes in a palatable, chewable tablet and has proven to be very effective and popular as a next-generation tick and flea treatment.

Bravecto tablets are available from from Vet Hospital Port Shepstone or at a reduced price from our online vet shop.

Because Bravecto is in tablet form, it gets absorbed from within the body and will never wash off like the older top spot treatments. The correct size tablet will be effective for 12 weeks (three months). It is indicated for dogs and puppies older than eight weeks of age and can be used in breeding, pregnant and lactating bitches.

Bravecto contains the very safe Fluralaner, a very similar active ingredient to the one used in NexGard. It is available in the following sizes:

  • Miniature dogs (2 – 4,5 kg)
  • Small dogs (> 4.5 – 10 kg)
  • Medium dogs (> 10 – 20 kg)
  • Large dogs (> 20 – 40 kg)
  • X-Large dogs (> 40 – 56 kg)
We at Vet Hospital Port Shepstone recommend religious use of Bravecto every three months, throughout the year.

Bravecto is also known by some clients as the tick and flea pill or the tick pill. The product starts killing ticks and fleas within eight hours from first time administration and new ticks and fleas will die within 12 hours. Bravecto kills adult as well as juvenile ticks (larvae, nymphs), thus preventing the transmission of tick fever and tick bite fever. Newly emerged fleas on a dog are killed before viable eggs are produced.

As a value-added service from Vet Hospital Port Shepstone, existing clients will receive a free reminder SMS at the time their next Bravecto treatment is due.
Bravecto is a long-lasting over the counter tick AND flea product only legally available from veterinarians. For more information, phone and/or ask at our reception or speak to the attending veterinarian during your next consult.
