If vomiting occurs, check with your vet to decide whether to redose or not; however, if an otherwise healthy dog vomits within 3 hours of receiving Bravecto , it is recommended that the dog be redosed. To help ensure that the dog does not vomit again, it is suggested to wait 24 hours until redosing.
If 4 or more hours have passed before the vomiting occurs, it is likely that the medication has been absorbed and the dog is protected. If the vomiting repeats again, DO NOT give a third chew, and call your veterinarian.
If you suspect that a side effect has taken place as a result of giving the dog Bravecto, please report it to Merck Technical Services at 1-800-224-5318, and follow any advice that they provide.1
