Greetings clients and patients of Animal Medical of New City! Well it seems as though spring has finally arrived, and with the warmer weather here it is time to make sure your pets are up to date on their flea and tick prevention. We want to take the time to inform you about a new oral external parasite preventative now available for your pets called Bravecto.
A Flea Product For Dogs That Comes In Pill!
Bravecto is a chewable tablet, made for dogs only, that provides protection against fleas and four species of ticks for up to 12 weeks. Bravecto starts killing preexisting fleas within 2 hours, and ticks within 12 hours of administration. Any newcomers that latch on will be killed within 24 hours. Available in 5 different sizes, Bravecto is safe to give to dogs 6 months of age and older weighing at least 4.4 pounds, as well as breeding, pregnant, and lactating females.
Won’t Come Off In The Pool. Won’t Come Off On Your Hands!
For those of us who are not fond of the topical flea and tick products, Bravecto is a great alternative. No more greasy mess on our dog’s back, or worry about the children petting the dog and having the product on their hands. Bathing or swimming will not get in the way of their prevention either with an oral preventive
