Have you heard the news? There’s a brand new flea and tick prevention for dogs, and it tastes great (at least that’s what our patients seem to say…if they could talk)! It’s Bravecto®!
Get Rid of That Itch!
Bravecto is a long acting 12 week flea and tick control in a safe, chew tablet for your dog. It’s safe for puppies 6 months old and older, and kills fleas within hours, and ticks within a day. Even better, it lasts 12 full weeks, so you don’t have to remember a monthly application, or worry about a spot-on or liquid getting all over you, your kids, or your other pets. One chew tab every 12 weeks is all it takes and your dog is covered!
What’s not to love? In addition to being incredibly easy to use, it’s also safe and effective. Bravecto helps prevent Lyme disease by killing the ticks that carry it. In case you’re wondering just how important that is, check out our blog posts for information on what you need to know about lyme disease and the symptoms of lyme disease in dogs. Preventing Lyme disease is incredibly important in our area, and in addition to the Lyme vaccination, Bravecto keeps your dog protected for 12 weeks.
In addition to all that great stuff, Bravecto is an edible tablet which means you don’t have to worry about keeping your dog out of the water waiting for a topical to dry, and baths and shampoo don’t affect it. That means for all of you lab and other water-loving dogs out there, you’re home free! Give them their Bravecto chew, and into the water they can go without ever missing a swim.
