Bravecto is the treatment we use to keep our dogs (and cats) free from ticks and fleas, a very important part of keeping them healthy and comfortable in this hot and humid environment! One tablet provides protection for up to 3 months.
Both ticks and fleas are small parasites that feed on the blood of their hosts, which in the more severe cases of infestation can lead to anemia (a lack of circulating red blood cells which can cause all sorts of other health complications due to loss of stamina, weight loss/loss of appetite, etc.). Other symptoms caused by fleas include itchiness and irritated skin, scabbing and even loss of hair – all of which can cause the dogs lots of discomfort. Ticks on the other hand can transmit more serious diseases that can quickly lead to serious illness (both in dogs and their human companions) so prevention and early diagnosis are essential.
