I love my dogs. I adore every single on of them. When they chew my new purse or have an accident in their crate, when they decide my chair cushion is perfect for tug of war or when they dig up my newly planted spring flowers…even then I wouldn’t trade them for the world. Nothing beats their excitement when you get home from work, or heck from a five minute run to the grocery store. They’re entertainment, they play along when you’re happy, they listen when you’re sad, they’re protectors and hunting buddies. I cannot imagine a life without dogs. What I could do without though, is having to worry about those pesky fleas and ticks throughout the year.
Fleas and ticks are nothing to joke about. At the least they’re a nuisance and at the worst, well in some cases they can make your pets, and even humans quite ill. That’s why it’s best to take preventative action and try to ensure that they do not make an appearance at all instead of treating them after the fact. But I know, that’s easier said than done because even the highest quality products on the market, aren’t always user friendly. Living in the country we have to at least make an attempt to keep our pets protected and we’ve tried pretty much everything out there with less than stellar results for any number of reasons.
There’s a new kid in town in the form of a tasty chewable extended duration flea and tick control. Say what?! Yes, you heard me right and I’ll agree, the thought of this had me pretty excited and saying “so tell me more”. It’s called BRAVECTO® (Fluralaner) and it comes in the form of a tasty chew that provides protection from fleas and ticks for up to 12 weeks*…that’s almost 3 times longer than other monthly treatments, assuming the others stay on once applied! Get this, BRAVECTO® starts killing fleas within 2 hours and kills 100% of fleas within 12 hours and it’s FDA approved. I mean 100% of fleas dead…I don’t know of anything else that can say that in just 2 hours! There’s so much to love about this, but just the level of convenience it gives to busy pet parent’s is amazing – I mean you really can’t mess up giving one tasty chew every 12 weeks right?
BRAVECTO® is only available from your veterinarian or veterinary clinic, so if you haven’t already, we should all be getting our pets in to talk about flea and tick prevention anyway If your dog is 6 months or older, don’t hesitate, make your appointment now.
