Does Bravecto® repel fleas and ticks?

You may have heard that Bravecto® is a repellent. This is not true, because Bravecto® is a chewable tablet that prevents flea infestations in your pets by killing adult fleas and ticks on contact. The active ingredient in Bravecto®, fluralaner, works to stop fleas and ticks from biting your dog or cat by blocking their ability to produce certain proteins needed for blood feeding.

What is Bravecto for dogs and cats?

Bravecto is a chewable, beef-flavored tablet that protects dogs and cats from fleas and ticks for three months. It’s approved for use in dogs and cats 6 months of age or older.

The active ingredient in Bravecto is fluralaner, which belongs to a class of drugs called isoxazolines, which kill adult fleas by blocking nerve signals from their brains to muscles causing paralysis. After consuming the drug, adults continue to feed on the pet but cannot move effectively enough to jump back off or leave it for long periods of time until they die.

Fluralaner also prevents development of immature forms (eggs) into adult fleas by stopping formation at various stages of their life cycle; if this effect does not occur then all immature stages will become adults which means there will be more fleas left behind when they die off!

Are Bravecto and NexGard safe for animals?

Bravecto is safe for dogs and cats. It’s also safe for puppies and kittens, even ones who are still nursing. Bravecto is also safe for pregnant or lactating animals, as well as those with other medical conditions (including a history of seizures).

It’s important to note that not all ticks carry diseases, but it’s best to err on the side of caution when it comes to tick bites in order to avoid any potential complications.
