Bravecto SPOT ON solution for very small dogs (2-4.5kg)
Bravecto Spot-on Treatment for dogs provides
6 months protection against fleas and 4 months against ticks in a single dose
Bravecto Spot-On for Dogs is an ideal flea and tick treatment for dogs due to it's long protection period.
It is easy to apply. The spot-on tube has a "twist-n-turn" cap that doesn't come off, remaining as a complete tube for easy application.
Bravecto Spot-On for Dogs can be used in puppies from 8 weeks of age and is safe for use in breeding, pregnant and lactating dogs.
It is also approved for the treatment and control of sarcoptic mange, ear mites and flea allergy dermatitis.
It is available in 5 weight ranges for dogs from 2-56kg.
Please note Bravecto should be used for dogs from 8 weeks of age and 2kg only. For dogs above 56kg, use a combination of two Bravecto spot-on tubes that most closely matches the body weight. Once Bravecto spot-on is administered, it is readily absorbed into the dog’s blood stream from the skin. The active ingredient, fluralaner, then distributes and persists for 6 months. It works inside the dog providing nose-to-toes protection.1 Due to its systemic profile Bravecto is suitable for dogs who swim or are bathed regularly. It is recommended dogs are not washed or shampooed within 3 days of treatment. Use with caution in dogs with a history of seizures. Seizures have been reported in dogs receiving fluralaner, even in dogs without a history of seizures.

WHY DOES BRAVECTO SPOT-ON FOR DOGS LAST LONGER THAN BRAVECTO SPOT-ON FOR CATS?

CAN I USE BRAVECTO SPOT-ON FOR DOGS IN GROWING, LARGE BREED PUPPIES?
MSD recommends the use of Bravecto chew for rapidly growing, large breed puppies, due to the shorter treatment interval allowing more flexible and accurate dosing.
HOW CAN I CHOOSE BETWEEN BRAVECTO CHEW AND SPOT-ON FOR DOGS?
Every pet owner and dog has specific needs and preferences. Some dogs are picky eaters, others won’t sit still for a spot-on treatment. Some owners prefer the longest possible protection from one treatment, others may prefer to administer flea and tick treatment every 3 months alongside other pet care routines such as intestinal wormers. Bravecto is available in both a spot-on and chew, ensuring there is always long lasting protection available to suit your client’s needs.
