What is Bravecto Plus?

Bravecto Plus is an advanced version of Bravecto designed specifically for cats. While Bravecto offers protection against fleas and ticks, Bravecto Plus provides added protection against certain internal parasites.

Here's a breakdown of what Bravecto Plus offers:

Fleas and Ticks: Like the original Bravecto, Bravecto Plus effectively treats and prevents flea infestations and treats and controls tick infestations.
Heartworm: Bravecto Plus prevents heartworm disease in cats, which is caused by the parasite Dirofilaria immitis.
Intestinal Worms: It also treats and controls roundworm (Toxocara cati) and hookworm (Ancylostoma tubaeforme) infections, which are common internal parasites in cats.
Application: Bravecto Plus is a spot-on treatment, meaning it's applied topically on the cat's skin at the base of the skull, ensuring the cat cannot lick it off.

As always, it's important to consult with a veterinarian to ensure the right treatment and dosage for a pet's specific needs.


How does Bravecto work on dogs?

Bravecto uses an active ingredient called fluralaner. When given to dogs:

Chewable Tablet: The dog eats it and the ingredient enters the blood.
Spot-on Treatment: It's applied to the skin and absorbed into the blood.

When fleas and ticks bite a treated dog, they take in fluralaner from the dog's blood. This harms their nervous system, causing their death. One dose protects the dog from fleas and ticks for up to 12 weeks. Always use the right dose for your dog's size and check with a vet for best care.


How does Bravecto work on cats?

Bravecto uses the active ingredient fluralaner to protect cats:

Spot-on Treatment: When applied to the cat's skin, it's absorbed into their bloodstream.

  • When fleas and ticks bite the treated cat, they consume fluralaner from the cat's blood.
  • This substance disrupts the pest's nervous system, leading to its death.
  • A single application provides protection against fleas and ticks for up to 12 weeks.
  • Always use the appropriate dose for your cat's size and regularly consult with a vet for optimal care.
