Extended Flea & Tick Protection In A Tasty Chew #12Bravecto

We love the great outdoors, and so do our dogs!  We like nothing better than taking our dogs on outdoor adventures like hiking, camping, or going to beach.  They love to run through bushes, swim in lakes & ponds, hunt for critters in tall grass, and roll around in wet sand by the ocean.


Now there's an easier way to protect your dog from fleas and ticks
Icy loves to lay in tall grasses but she's not alone in the grass, pesky fleas and ticks also love tall grass!
With all that time outdoors comes the threat of fleas and ticks, they’re unavoidable!  Whether your dogs have outdoor adventures far from home or right in your own backyard, flea prevention and tick control is important for their health and safety!

It's important to make sure our dogs are protected from fleas and ticks year round.  Using a messy, oily topical treatment every month isn't very convenient.  It's no fun having to make the dog sit still while you clumsily apply it without getting it all over your hands, either!  There's got to be a better way to protect our dogs from fleas and ticks, right?  Now there is!
  LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT BRAVECTO® (Fluralaner)

BRAVECTO is a tasty chew that provides up to 12 weeks of protection against fleas and ticks* 

BRAVECTO starts killing fleas within 2 hours and kills 100% of fleas in 12 hours!

BRAVECTO is FDA approved and is only available from your Veterinarian or Veterinary Clinic

BRAVECTO is easy and convenient to use.  Just 1 tasty chew provides up to 12 weeks of flea and tick protection*  That's nearly 3 times longer than monthly treatments!

There are a lot of flea and tick control products out there, but only BRAVECTO provides a tasty oral chew that lasts for up to 12 weeks!*  

* BRAVECTO  kills fleas, prevents flea infestations, and kills ticks (black-legged tick or "deer tick", American dog tick and brown dog tick) for 12 weeks.  It also kills lone star ticks for 8 weeks.

BRAVECTO  is only available by prescription.  Visit your Veterinarian so you can start extended flea and tick protection for your dog right away!

Extended Flea & Tick Protection for dogs in a tasty chew?  Yes, Please!
Icy loves to hike, and swim in the creek in Sedona, AZ.  So do pesky fleas & ticks!

I’m really excited about the extended flea and tick control  BRAVECTO chews provide!   I was happy to learn that BRAVECTO  is made by Merck, one of the largest and most trusted pharmaceutical companies in the world. 

Most of us know that Merck Pharmaceutical produces medications that improve the health and well being of people, but did you know that Merck is also a global leader in the research, development, and manufacturing of veterinary medicines?   
We all want to be diligent about the health of our pets, using products that are safe for them is vitally important.  It gives me peace of mind to know that BRAVECTO is made by Merck.  It's FDA approved (for dogs over 6 months) and Vet recommended.  I have confidence that BRAVECTO is not only effective, it's also safe to use on my dogs!
Extended Flea & Tick protection in a tasty chew that lasts up to 12 weeks!
Hiking is one of our favorite activities to do with our dogs.  Flea & tick protection is a must!
The fact that BRAVECTO comes in a tasty chew, is fast acting, and only needs to be administered every 3 months is a huge convenience.  Compared to a messy topical treatment that needs to be applied every month, I think it’s a big improvement in controlling fleas and ticks!
If you're wondering "How can I get rid of fleas?", ask your Veterinarian about BRAVECTO, the tasty chew that offers up to 12 week protection against fleas and ticks.  Or, click here to locate a Veterinarian that can provide BRAVECTO.

  4. This is our first year using Bravecto! When we went to the vet to start her preventative treatment for the season the vet suggested adding Bravecto. Miss Edie had no problem at all eating the chews!

  6. We're due to bring Kilo in for a check up to ask his vet about Bravecto! Especially since we've been spending more time outdoors lately due to the sunny weather here in Canada! This sounds like a lovely alternative to getting messy using typical drops.

  14. I absolutely love the convenience and ease of a monthly chew. I have never been totally comfortable with topical treatments. We live just outside Chicago and ticks aren't a huge problem for us, but protection from fleas is definitely vital!

    1. I don't care for topicals either, such a mess! I love that Bravecto is a tasty chew that you only need to give every 3 months, so convenient!

  15. We try to be very vigilant in our fight against fleas and ticks, but I am also concerned about the methods we use to keep them safe. A once a month treatment isn't too hard to remember. My dogs are big fans of anything tasty.

  17. Thanks for sharing this, Cathy. I've seen the commercials on TV but haven't had time to look into it. This is a much better alternative for us who live in areas where we don't need year-round flea and tick preventatives.

    Some people use a chewable that includes worming, flea and tick all in one tablet, but I didn't like the idea of treating Haley all year for the fleas and ticks if we don't need to. Bravecto looks like a great alternative. It sounds like people have had good results so far too.
