Don’t let your dog start the year with an itch. Just one Bravecto® chewable tablet starts killing fleas and ticks fast, and provides 12 full weeks of continuous protection. Fleas that feed on a Bravecto® treated dog do not produce a new generation of fleas. All juvenile life stages (eggs, larvae, pupae) in the environment will mature to adult fleas over approximately 3 months. As they mature, the new adult fleas are killed – before they can lay eggs- when they get on your dog to feed. Visit to find out more about Bravecto®. [/box]
