What is Bravecto for Cats?

Bravecto for Cats is a safe and effective topical flea and tick treatment that provides up to 12 weeks of protection. It is indicated for the treatment and prevention of flea infestations (Ctenocephalides felis) and the treatment and control of black-legged tick (Ixodes scapularis) infestations for 12 weeks in cats and kittens 6 months of age and older, and weighing 2.6 lbs or greater. This easy-to-apply formula also treats and controls Dermacentor variabilis (American dog tick) infestations for 8 weeks. With one application, Bravecto for Cats will protect your cat against fleas for three times as long as most leading flea and tick preventatives. This means less of a chance of missing a dose, making it easier to keep your cat protected year-round. One dose effectively breaks the 3-month flea life cycle, from egg to adulthood. Bravecto for Cats requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

How does Bravecto for Cats work?

After applying Bravecto for Cats, the medication quickly reaches tissue fluids under your cat's skin. When fleas and ticks feed on your cat, they ingest Bravecto for Cats and die. Bravecto for Cats kills fleas, prevents flea infestations and kills black-legged ticks for 12 weeks. Bravecto for Cats also treats and controls American dog ticks for 8 weeks.

Bravecto for Cats Directions:

  • Bravecto for Cats should be administered topically as a single dose every 12 weeks according to the Dosage Guidelines below to provide a minimum dose of 18.2 mg/lb (40 mg/kg) body weight.
  • Bravecto for Cats may be administered every 8 weeks in case of potential exposure to Dermacentor variabilis ticks.

Application Instructions:

  1. Immediately before use, open the pouch and remove the tube. Hold the tube at the crimped end with the cap in an upright position (tip up). The cap should be rotated clockwise or counter clockwise one full turn. The cap is designed to stay on the tube for dosing and should not be removed. The tube is open and ready for application when a click is heard or felt. This indicates that the seal is broken and product can be applied to your cat.
  2. The cat should be standing or lying with its back horizontal during application. Part the fur at the administration site. Place the tube tip vertically against the skin at the base of your cat's skull.
  3. Squeeze the tube and gently apply the entire contents of Bravecto for Cats directly to the skin at the base of your cat's skull. Avoid applying an excessive amount of solution that could cause some of the solution to run and drip off of your cat. If a second spot is needed to avoid run off, then apply the second spot slightly behind the first spot.

Tip:

Treatment with Bravecto may begin at any time of the year and can continue year round without interruption.
