Description

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 It Works

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.

Indications

Bravecto kills adult fleas and is indicated for the treatment and prevention of flea infestations (Ctenocephalides felis) and the treatment and control of Ixodes scapularis (black-legged tick) infestations for 12 weeks in cats and kittens 6 months of age and older, and weighing 2.6 pounds or greater.

Bravecto is also indicated for the treatment and control of Dermacentor variabilis (American dog tick) infestations for 8 weeks in cats and kittens 6 months of age and older, and weighing 2.6 pounds or greater.

The cap should be rotated clockwise or counterclockwise one full turn. The cap is designed to stay on the tube for dosing and should not be removed. The tube is openand ready for application when a "click" is heard or felt. This indicates that the seal is broken and product can beapplied to the cat.

  3. Squeeze the tube and gently apply the entire contents of Bravectodirectly to the skin at the base of the skull of the cat. Avoid applying an excessive amount of solution that couldcause some of the solution to run and drip off the cat. If a second spot is needed to avoid run off, then apply thesecond spot slightly behind the first spot.
  4. Treatment with Bravecto may begin at any time of the year and can continue year round without interruption.

The potential risks ticks pose to pets can be stressful to pet owners wanting to ensure their pet receives effective coverage. Bravecto kills 4 different species of ticks commonly found on dogs and 2 species found on cats to protect your pet for 12 weeks.*5-7

In the field study, two cats treated with fluralaner topical solution experienced ataxia. One cat became ataxic with a right head tilt 34 days after the first dose. The cat improved within one week of starting antibiotics. The ataxia and right head tilt, along with lateral recumbency, reoccurred 82 days after administration of the first dose. The cat recovered with antibiotics and was redosed with fluralaner topical solution 92 days after administration of the first dose, with no further abnormalities during the study.

In well-controlled laboratory studies, Bravecto demonstrated > 94% effectiveness against Ixodes scapularis 48 hours post- infestation for 12 weeks. Bravecto demonstrated > 98% effectiveness against Dermacentor variabilis 48 hours post-infestation for 8 weeks, but failed to demonstrate ≥ 90% effectiveness beyond 8 weeks.

In a well-controlled U.S. field study, a single dose of Bravecto reduced fleas by ≥99% for 12 weeks. Cats with signs of flea allergy dermatitis showed improvement in erythema, alopecia, papules, scales, crusts, and excoriation as a direct result of eliminating flea infestations.

There are no problems reported in field trials in dogs and cats that received Bravecto alongside other commonly used medicines.1-3, 12 However, your veterinarian is your pet's healthcare expert, so it is always best to discuss all of your pet's treatments with them, whether prescription or over-the-counter supplements.

Your cat doesn't need to go outside to be at risk for fleas and ticks. Cats can be exposed to fleas and ticks from dogs in your house. However, even cats without dog siblings can be at risk. You can carry fleas inside on your clothes and shoes - and the larvae and pupae can hide within your home for weeks before hopping on your cat.

If you live in an apartment complex, fleas can move from 1 apartment to the next. And, certain ticks can survive indoors throughout their lifecycle, so they can come in with you from outside and eventually attach to your pet.10

Not at this time.
Apply the dose to 1 spot on the skin on the back of the neck (push back fur if necessary). This will provide full-body protection for 12 weeks.*3 See product insert for complete application instructions.

Iíve been using Bravecto on my cat now for about 2 years. Iíve used Frontline and Advantage products prior to this and they both failed to work over time. Was told by a vet that my cat probably developed a tolerance to these products and thatís why they no longer worked. He has a bad flea bite allergy and his rash is minimal on Bravecto Entirely pets pharmacy is the BEST price anywhere Iíve seen. Thank you.

Bravecto for cats 13.8-27.5 lbs
April 30, 2020
I have 2 cats and 1 dog and they are all indoor/outdoor. This stuff works pretty well. Very small tube so I need to be careful to make sure I get it right down to the skin after parting their fur. I've found if I get a little sloppy with it and don't get it directly in the spot it doesn't last for the full 3 months. Otherwise, it works great and Entirely Pets has the best price around and I do check other sites for sales and discounts but so far Entirely Pets has always had the best price. I recommend this product.
ProsEffective!
ConsVery tiny tube of a concentrated product. Don't spill a drop!

I have used a few prescription flea and tick meds...none have worked as well as Bravecto! My 2 cats love to go behind our fence in the little mini forest behind our house in our neighborhood. Itís full of ticks & I am highly allergic to tick bites. I have always found the small deer ticks all over the cats coming back into the yard before Bravecto. Now that we have been using this fir our cats, I donít see any tick on them when they come back! It's s a miracle! This will be the third year we use a Bravecto & I will never use anything else!

I am very happy with this product. My vet prescribed it for my cat after he still had a bad flea infection even while I was using Advantage II every month with no effects. After one time using Bravecto, though, the fleas were gone! Also it's really nice how it only has to be applied every 3 months instead of monthly. And this website had the best price I could find. Will keep buying this for my cat.

Bravecto is the only flea control that has worked on my cat! All of the other flea controls wouldn't keep the fleas from jumping onto my cat and leaving their saliva. They wouldn't bite her, but the saliva from the fleas gives her severe dermatitis and she becomes very itchy and scabs would appear. For the last 4 months I have been using Bravecto and my cat has NOT gotten "itchy", nor has she gotten one single scab from her scratching at herself! She always looked so miserable and now she looks so much more at peace. I also love the fact that one tube lasts for 3 MONTHS! That makes it very convenient and less stressful! Thank you Bravecto for helping my cat get better and keep the fleas AWAY! I am now a permanent customer!
ProsLasts for 3 months Keeps the fleas away better than any other flea control I have used in the last 14 years Easy to use

We bought this product for our other two cats directly from our vet and it works great for us. So when we got a new cat, we wanted her on the same. I found the same product here at a significantly lower price. Mailing in the prescription was easy and the product was shipped to us very quickly. We will definitely be coming back to order more when my other cats need a refill.

I cannot believe how quickly this worked & how effectively. I joke that it was like Jesus Himself waved His hands over these cats & the fleas were gone. I'm happy. My cats are happy. And I saved approximately $20 per tube by not purchasing at my Vets office. That's a big savings when purchasing for 5 cats.

We've been fighting a losing battle with fleas for months. My Vet recommended Bravecto & we received the order yesterday. Applied the topical solution at 7pm last night. Just combed out 4 cats & not one flea was found on any of the four. I'm so thankful for this product. Completely worth the price. I paid $44.99 per tube here instead of $64 at the Vet's office. Now we'll try the Bravecto chews for dogs.
