Some International Veterinarian Bravecto Reviews
Safe and effective product for flea/tick control
Bravecto is a great product for flea treatment and prevention. It is safe and very easy to administer. It is a flavored tablet which only needs to be given every 3 months. This is very convenient for most busy pet owners who may fall behind on other monthly flea products.
Bravecto kills existing fleas quickly and continues to prevent new flea infestation for the entire 3 month treatment period. It is also very effective in tick control and may aid in the treatment of mites.
If you have a young growing puppy, you will need to wait until they are older to start Bravecto, only because your puppy with outgrow its dose in the 3 month treatment period. Otherwise, it is a great option for all dogs.

Bravecto is my favorite flea and tick preventative
Bravecto is an oral flea and tick preventative that lasts for 12 weeks. This means you only have to give one chew, four times per year. It works extremely well and most pets love it!
I will always recommend this over a topical preventative. Unlike the topical options, you don't have to worry about the greasy spot on their back and if it soaked in, how to keep your children from touching it and how to keep it away from your furniture.

Convenient and well worth the price
Bravecto is taking the animal health industry by storm, causing vets and animal owners alike to breathe a sigh of relief. Not only is it very effective even against heavy tick infestations, but it also is long-lasting, requiring a dosing only every 3 months. The duration of its effect is its biggest strength, as it means that you will only have to give your dog this anti-tick product four times a year rather than twelve.
What makes it slightly tricky to give however is that even though Bravecto is said to be delicious, most dogs do not eat it on their own and have to be forcefed. It is quite difficult to forcefeed this to brachycephalic breads like bulldogs, mind you, seeing as in bigger sizes it's got quite a bit of mass and is squishy. Cleaning up the mess after a dog has forcibly regurgitated it is taxing. And I'm unsure as to why they made it look like a Reese piece. Assuming there is actually a dog that would eat this on its own, unattended dogs could easily mistake a piece of chocolate for such a product.

Bravecto is a long term tick and flea protection chewabl
Bravecto is very effective! Both flea and tick will die after take this medicine in 1 days. It's tasty. My dogs eat it by themselves. Some dogs can have reaction (from my experiences) like diarrhea but it's gone in 2 days.

Works for everything!
Vets in my country call it "a miracle tablet ". It works for fleas, ticks, Demodex, Cheylietella, Otodectes and maybe others...Given once for 3 months is chosen more often than others, that require monthly treatment. However, in this case, the concentration of the active ingredient is much higher. We have to remember it is a new drug, so nobody tested it for 20-30 years in a continuous use, but it is proved that it has a few side effects up to now. I love it for the simplicity of use, taste that dogs accept and dealing with parasites fast. I do not recommend it without a vet consultation if patient has a serious renal/hepatic failure or epilepsy.

A new option in flea control
The use of routine, effective flea treatment will prevent a flea bite becoming a flea infestation. Always respect the dosage instructions (don't use a 30kg dog dose on a 10kg dog) and seek advice from your veterinary team if you feel your flea control regime is not working.
