For prevention of heartworm disease in cats, Bravecto Plus should be administered at 2-month intervals. It can be given year-round without interruption or at two-month intervals from the cat's first seasonal exposure to mosquitoes until the last exposure. If a dose is missed and a 2-month interval between doses is exceeded, administer Bravecto Plus immediately and resume the dosing every 2 months.

When replacing a heartworm flea tick medicine, the first dose of Bravecto Plus should be given within one month of the last dose of the former medication.

    • Step 2: The cat should be standing or lying with its back horizontal during application. Part the fur at the administration site. Place the tube tip vertically against the skin at the base of the skull of the cat.
    • Step 3: Squeeze the tube and gently apply the entire contents of Bravecto Plus directly to the skin at the base of the skull of the cat. Avoid applying an excessive amount of solution that could cause some of the solution to run and drip off of the cat. If a second spot is needed to avoid run off, then apply the second spot slightly behind the first spot.

Will Bravecto kill ticks and fleas that are already on my dog or cat?
How does Bravecto kill fleas and ticks?
After you give your pet BRAVECTO, it quickly reaches tissue fluids just under your dog's or cat's skin. When fleas and ticks feed, they ingest BRAVECTO and die.
How quickly does Bravecto work and for how long?

My dog or cat is taking some medications for another condition as well right now. Can I still give them Bravecto?
There are no problems reported in field trials in dogs and cats that received BRAVECTO alongside other commonly used medicines. However, your veterinarian is your pet's health care expert, so it is always best to discuss all of your pet's treatments with them, whether prescription or over-the-counter supplements.
Why should I Treat my cat for fleas and ticks if it never goes outside?
Your cat doesn’t need to go outside to be at risk for fleas and ticks. Cats can be exposed to fleas and ticks from dogs in your house. However, even cats without dog siblings can be at risk. You can carry fleas inside on your clothes and shoes, and the larvae and pupae can hide within your home for weeks before hopping on your cat.
If you live in an apartment complex, fleas can move from one apartment to the next. Certain ticks can survive indoors throughout their life cycle, so they can come in with you from outside and eventually attach to your pet.

Is there a Bravecto chew for cats?
There is no Bravecto chew for cats at this time. 
How do I apply Bravecto topical solution to my cat?
Apply the dose to one spot on the skin on the back of the neck (push back fur if necessary). This will provide full-body protection for 12 weeks.*4 See product insert for complete application instructions.
