You’ve heard me talk about flea and tick protection for your dogs a lot this year right? Why is this something I’ve been preaching since summer you ask? Because while fleas and ticks can seem like minor issues, the truth is they can be a hassle to you, and jeopardize the health of your pet. Just because Fall has arrived and the temps are getting cooler doesn’t mean that you can just stop worrying about fleas and ticks. Fall brings cooler weather, outdoor activities and more opportunities for ticks to bite your dog. Raise your hand if you have a hunting dog…*raises hand*…basically this is their prime season to be out running around in no-mans-land. Contrary to popular belief, fleas and ticks can stay around all year long. And tell me, what do you do when it’s cold outside? Stay inside right? Well, fleas prefer the warmth of your home too…Yuck! Nobody wants to deal with the little buggers so the best solution to this problem is prevention. Prevention means working with your vet protecting your pet year round, not just treating a problem after it surfaces. Thankfully BRAVECTO® (Fluralaner) is making year round protections easier than ever.
For anyone that hasn’t been paying attention the last few months, BRAVECTO is a super easy to administer chew that dogs seem to like and that provides protection from fleas and ticks for up to 12 weeks*. Its FDA approved and starts killing fleas within 2 hours and kills 100% of fleas within 12 hours. Your vet can let you know if he or she is on board and thinks it’s a good choice for your dog as well since the chews are only available from your veterinarian or veterinary clinic. Just imagine the convenience: only 1 tasty chew to kills fleas, prevents flea infestations, and kills ticks (black-legged tick, American dog tick, and brown dog tick) for up to 12 weeks*. BRAVECTO also kills lone star ticks for 8 weeks which is not to shabby. That’s basically 3 times longer protection than a monthly treatment. Just think of all the things you could do if you could cut the time it takes to do all of your other tasks by 1/3?!
With about 4 doses of BRAVECTO® every year, year-round tick and flea protection just got a whole lot easier so be sure to ask your veterinarian about protecting your dogs 6 months and older against fleas and ticks with BRAVECTO® this Fall and throughout the year. Always talk to your veterinarian to discuss which product is best for your pet because every dogs needs can differ and be sure to go to Bravecto.com for full prescribing information.
