Bravecto contains fluralaner.
Fluralaner is for systemic use and belongs to the class of isoxazoline-substituted benzamide derivatives. Fluralaner is an inhibitor of the arthropod nervous system. The mode of action of fluralaner is antagonism of the ligand-gated chloride channels (gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-receptor and glutamate-receptor).
Bravecto should be administered orally (with food) as a single dose every 12 weeks according to the Dosage Schedule below to provide a minimum dose of 11.4 mg/lb (25 mg/kg) body weight.

There are no known contraindications for the use of the product.
Bravecto Chews should be given with food. If a chew is broken or crumbles, make sure your dog still receives the whole dose.
One US field study found over 93% of dogs (home-treated) ate the chew voluntarily - either by itself or with food.
It is always best to discuss your pet's medical treatment with your veterinarian. However, Bravecto has a high margin of safety. In safety studies, Bravecto was tested in healthy dogs and puppies at up to 5 times the recommended dose at 8-week intervals for 3 treatments.1 Therefore, no adverse effects are expected if dogs are inadvertently treated twice with the recommended dose within 12 weeks, but please contact your veterinarian.
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.
