Launched in Europe and the United States last year and now available in Australia, Bravecto offers Aussie pooches unprecedented protection - a phenomenal 3 months for fleas and 4 months for paralysis ticks – with just 1 tasty oral chew. To date, protection from fleas and deadly paralysis ticks has most commonly been gained from products that require fortnightly or monthly application. As a result, many pet owners may forget to treat, leaving dogs unprotected, and pet owners worried. Due to its extended protection from one tasty treat, and super convenience to pet owners, who can now worry less, and love more, Bravecto is being hailed around the world as a quantum leap forward in pet science and its launch is highly anticipated.
The single most dangerous tick for dogs in Australia is the paralysis tick (Ixodes holocyclus) found on the eastern coast of Australia, with just one tick capable of causing paralysis and even death. Symptoms of paralysis tick toxicity typically starts with weakness of the hindquarters, progressing to total paralysis of all four legs. Other early symptoms include the appearance that the dog has something stuck in its throat, vomiting or heavy, loud breathing.
Fleas are an unpleasant experience for dogs causing itching and discomfort. In some cases, an allergy occurs to the flea saliva, causing hair loss and skin sores on dogs and cats, and worry for owners. Whilst unlikely to be deadly, fleas are a source of constant irritation. It can take a staggering 8 weeks or more to remove a flea infestation once it’s established in a home. Stopping infestations requires breaking of the flea life cycle, something Bravecto can do.
Bravecto is available from leading veterinarians across Australia without the need for a prescription. For the latest news and information about Bravecto visit www.bravecto.com.au and "like" Bravecto on Facebook.
