- Additional Information
A fast-acting flea and tick protection for cats. Bravecto is the feline flea control medication that is easy for pet owners to administer. Flea and tick prevention lasts up to 12 weeks with just a single dose.
- The innovative formula is applied topically – but, like the oral chew, it works systemically
- 1 dose lasts for 3 months!
- The Twist’n’Use™ applicator makes it easy to use – especially with finicky pets—with a cap that doesn’t need to be removed
- Fewer potential gaps in protection for 12 weeks than with monthly topical flea control treatments means it helps with the challenge of poor compliance
- Available by veterinary prescription only
Consult with your veterinarian for proper dosage and course of treatment.
