Easy—one tasty chew or a topical solution with an easy Twist'n'Use™ applicator.

Bravecto chewable tablets contain fluralaner and are used in dogs to control fleas and ticks. One dose is effective for 12 weeks against fleas and most types of tick. Bravecto can be given safely to breeding dogs, including pregnant or lactating bitches and puppies from eight weeks of age. The tablets should not be broken prior to dosing and are best given with food.

Dog tablets

Bravecto is only effective once the parasite has bitten the dog and taken some blood, so in a heavily infested environment, newly attached parasites might be seen briefly before they die. Newly emerged fleas will be killed before they are mature enough to lay eggs, so the life cycle of the flea is effectively stopped.

Bravecto® chewable tablets for dogs

How to give BRAVECTO to dogs

A single dose of BRAVECTO Chew should be given to the dog by mouth with food.1

A single dose of BRAVECTO Topical Solution for Dogs should be given by parting the dog's hair and applying the product directly to the skin between the shoulder blades.2

Will you accept a 1 year prescription for this product?


  • VioVet customer since 2016
  • From: Castell-nedd Port Talbot, United Kingdom

My vet tells me that they will issue a prescription with sufficient repeats for 1 year of treatment for this product. Will you accept this, or would you limit it to 6 months only?

Dr. Nick Garside BVetMed MRCVS

  • VioVet Staff

Written prescriptions in the UK are valid for only up to 6 months from the date of issue. This means vets usually only prescribe at most 6 months worth of medication on one script. However it is not illegal to prescribe more and we can accept prescriptions for greater quantities of medications, such as 12 months worth. You must order all these medications before the script expires though.

Fleas on dogs

Helen Whitmore

We are currently using Prinovox pipette,but they are not working, they seem to run out of protection before the month is up. Have only just renewed , how long before we can try Bravecto tablets.

Dr. Nick Garside BVetMed MRCVS

  • VioVet Staff

Bravecto and Privinox do not share similar ingredients so they can be safely used together. You do not need to wait for the Privinox to wear off before starting the Bravecto.
If you are having problems with fleas then I advice reading our blog 'Help - my pet's got fleas!'. Getting flea free requires treating the house and taking into account other considerations too.

I'm in India n can I place order with prescription from Indian vet?

Thank you for your question.

As you are not in the EU we will not require a prescription.

Thank you.

UK prescription

American Canine

We are in the US. So we need a UK prescription?

Dr. John Cousins BVSc MRCVS

  • VioVet Staff

If we are posting to a US address then we need a US prescription. If we post to the UK then we need a UK prescription.

Safe for Border Collie/ Austrailan Shepard Mix?


I have a 1 1/2 year old Aussie/Border mix who weighs 60 Bravecto safe for collie mixes?

Dr. John Cousins BVSc MRCVS

  • VioVet Staff

This product has been tested at a three-fold overdose in collies with the known genetic variation and found to be very safe. As long as you give the correct dose it should be perfectly safe for your "collie mix".

Spot on

Julie cottam

How soon after using stronghold spot on can I safely give my dogs bravecto ?

Dr. John Cousins BVSc MRCVS

  • VioVet Staff

The active ingredients in these two products are completely different and there is no reason to expect them to interact adversely at all. Theoretically it should be safe to give Bravecto at the same time as Stronghold, but it would be sensible to discuss this with your own vet first.

Frequent bathing


Will frequent bathing reduce the effectiveness of Bravecto?

Dr. John Cousins BVSc MRCVS

  • VioVet Staff

I would not expect frequent bating to reduce the effectiveness. It is a systemic product and parasites have to bite the dog to be killed off. This is different from the usual spot-on treatments which coat the surface of the dog and can be washed off.

Safe for seizure prone dog?

Cathy D.

I recently acquired a 6 year old rescue German Shepherd. She is on Atopica for anal furunculosis (100mg capsules) and weighs 27kg. Her vaccinations had lapsed so they were given (including the new lepto-4). She had one seizure a few days after the first vacc, which we did not connect, but she had 3 seizures within 24 hours after the second vacc. Previous owner thought she had some seizures but did not connect them with anything. I am about to flea treat her for the first time and was going to use Stronghold which I use for my other GSD, but the leaflet said it can cause seizures so did not want to risk that. I do not know what has been used on her in the past, so was going to use Frontline, then someone mentioned Bravecta. It is just routine treatment, we don't have a particular flea or tick problem. What would you suggest as the safest course of action for her please. Thank you.

Dr. John Cousins BVSc MRCVS

  • VioVet Staff

It is not possible to predict with certainty when another fit might occur but it is true that some medications might well make another fit more likely. I would recommend Frontline Spot-on for your dog. The active ingredient is virtually not absorbed into the body at all, it just sits on the surface of the skin and coat. It is also very non-toxic to dogs anyway. I think that Frontline would be your safest option rather than a systemic product like Bravecto or Stronghold.

Safety of bravecto

Helen patrick

Is bravecto safe for border collies? Is it palatable and what are the side effects if any?

DC BSc Hons, E-SQP

  • VioVet Staff

The safety of Bravecto in collies has been tested (using dogs with the MDR1 deletion mutation) and it has been shown to be safe.

The tablets are palatable and intended to be taken directly. If a dog doesn't wish to take it, it can be disguised in food or administered orally. Tablets should not be split or crushed into food, and it is important to watch that it has been swallowed.

Side effects that may be seen include mild and short-lived gastrointestinal effects such as diarrhoea, vomiting, drooling and lack of appetite.
