Have you ever found yourself wondering, “How can I get rid of fleas?” Fleas are horrid little creatures. Unfortunately, they are the most common parasite found on dogs. They can be very easy for a pet to get if you aren’t careful. And they can be even more difficult to get rid of. Fleas make our pets uncomfortable. They can even cause them to be ill, as they can carry some serious diseases.
Fleas don’t just decrease quality of life for our pets. The nasty itsy bitsy ankle biters can make people pretty uncomfortable too! I consider our pets members of our family. Our lab puppy Dobby always makes himself comfortable on the couch. And at night, he hops up into our bed and snuggles right up with me. Obviously I don’t want fleas in my bed! According to the Companion Animal Parasite Council can take several months to rid your dog of fleas. It just makes sense to prevent fleas before they arrive and set up camp, feasting on our pets and our family members. BRAVECTO® (Fluralaner) can help you do that.
I have tried numerous different flea products over the years. As I mentioned, fleas can be tough to get rid of. The flea life cycle is a long one. Monthly treatments can be problematic, even if you remember to apply them on exactly the right day. Missing one day can cause a gap in protection and allow the infestation to continue and even worsen. Considering I can’t always remember what I had for breakfast, not remembering something this important is a real problem!
BRAVECTO® is a tasty, chewable extended duration flea and tick control product. For tick control, it kills ticks (black-legged tick, American dog tick, and brown dog tick) for 12 weeks. That’s nearly 3 times longer protection than a monthly treatment! It also kills lone start ticks for 8 weeks. That same one dose also offers up to 12 weeks of flea prevention. It starts killing fleas within 2 hours and kills 100% of fleas within 12 hours. (Go to Bravecto.com for full prescribing information.)
I love the convenience that BRAVECTO® offers. Just a few years ago there were no chewable options for dogs that offered both flea and tick control. Now, one tasty chewable offers up to 12 weeks of flea and tick control! That means you’re only giving four doses per year! It also means there’s no fear of forgetting to give a monthly dose!
FDA approved, BRAVECTO® is for dogs six months and older and is available only from your veterinarian or veterinary clinic.
