Bravecto Spot-on for Dogs comes in a clever TWIST´N´USE tube with a non-removable cap, it is simple and convenient to apply:
No. The cap is not designed or intended to be removed. Twist the cap one full turn until you feel the seal break and then invert the tube to express the product.

Bravecto Spot-on for Dogs is available in single dose packs across five weight bands ranging from 2 – 56 kg. One dose provides 6 months protection against fleas.
Bravecto Spot-on for Dogs may be used in puppies from 8 weeks of age and weighing ≥ 2 kg body weight. Puppies should be weighed regularly. Fast growing puppies may outgrow the initial weight band so speak to your veterinarian about adapting the treatment interval.
For dogs above 56 kg body weight, use a combination of two tubes that most closely matches the body weight.
The reason Bravecto Spot-on for Dogs lasts longer is not due to the dose, since the dose in Bravecto Spot-on for Dogs and Bravecto Chew are the same strenght. Bravecto Spot-on for Dogs has a unique formulation which leads to differences in absorption when Bravecto is applied onto the skin compared to when it is administered by mouth. It is this difference that accounts for the extended duration.
You should wait until the application area is dry before touching the area.
While the product should be dry sooner, it is not recommended to wash or allow the dog to become immersed or swim in water within 3 days after treatment.
It is always best to discuss all of your dog’s treatments with your veterinarian as they are your dog’s health care expert.
The active ingredient, fluralaner is absorbed into the dog’s blood and tissue fluids. Fleas are killed when they feed from the Bravecto-treated pet, as they take up a blood meal containing fluralaner. Newly emerged fleas on a dog are killed before viable eggs are produced.
Yes – if the animal is infested with fleas at the time of treatment, adult fleas on the animal are killed rapidly and no viable flea eggs are produced. The majority of a flea population exists as immature stages (eggs, larvae and pupae) in the environment. An environmental infestation may persist for some weeks after initial treatment due to the development of immature stages and the emergence of adult fleas from the environment. As adult fleas emerge and contact treated animals, they will be killed.
Yes. Due to the way Bravecto works, dead attached ticks can be still seen on dogs following treatment. Dead ticks can be easily removed as opposed to live ticks which take some force to dislodge from the skin of the dog. In tick season daily searching for and removal of any ticks found is recommended.
Yes, Bravecto Spot-on for Dogs may be used all year-round – that is only two doses a year for fleas! Fleas can be a year-round problem and can exist both indoors and outdoors.
No. Bravecto Spot-on for Dogs kills fleas and prevents new flea infestations for 6 months. As the majority of a flea population developing in the environment will emerge as adult fleas over this time, Bravecto Spot-on for Dogs will effectively control the entire flea population.
Yes. Bravecto Spot-on for Dogs is approved for use in breeding, pregnant and lactating dogs.
When fleas are in the process of dying their movements become uncoordinated. This may cause a skin sensation which can result in increased scratching of the dog. However, this phenomenon is quickly resolved once the fleas are dead.
Fleas can continually re-infest treated dogs – either from juvenile flea life stages that have just matured to adults in the household or from fleas that jump onto the pet when outside or visiting other homes. Bravecto will kill these fleas before they are able to lay viable eggs, breaking the flea life cycle. Also, as fleas die, they can move from the skin surface where they feed, to the tips of the hairs in the coat, making them more visible to the human eye.
