Bravecto for Cats is a safe and effective topical flea and tick treatment that provides up to 12 weeks of protection. It is indicated for the treatment and prevention of flea infestations (Ctenocephalides felis) and the treatment and control of black-legged tick (Ixodes scapularis) infestations for 12 weeks in cats and kittens 6 months of age and older, and weighing 2.6 lbs or greater. This easy-to-apply formula also treats and controls Dermacentor variabilis (American dog tick) infestations for 8 weeks. With one application, Bravecto for Cats will protect your cat against fleas for three times as long as most leading flea and tick preventatives. This means less of a chance of missing a dose, making it easier to keep your cat protected year-round. One dose effectively breaks the 3-month flea life cycle, from egg to adulthood. Bravecto for Cats requires a prescription from your veterinarian.
