It is important to apply Bravecto Plus to the skin on the back of the head, as per the diagram. Do not use directly on any skin lesions. As cats are fastidious groomers, applying to this location is important to prevent your cat from licking the wet application site. To make application easier, have your cat standing during application. It may be helpful to have someone else gently hold your cat or have your cat lying on its stomach while you apply Bravecto Plus. If your cat is larger than 6.25 kg we recommend applying the product in two spots. If multiple cats are treated and may mutually groom, it is recommended that cats are separated while product dries.
No. The cap is not designed or intended to be removed. Twist the cap one full turn until you feel the seal break and then invert the pipette to express the product.
No. Opening the cap breaks an internal seal that cannot be closed by turning the cap back. Once the pipette is opened, the pet should be treated as soon as possible. Bravecto Plus will begin to evaporate after opening.

Pre-existing and new infestations of paralysis ticks are killed within 48 hours of treatment, effectively killing > 95% of paralysis ticks at 72 hours for 10 weeks. As treatment alone will not entirely eliminate the risk of tick paralysis, daily tick searching is also recommended.
Heartworm larvae can be transmitted by feeding mosquitoes through to your cat’s bloodstream and eventually migrate to the cat’s heart or blood vessels of the lungs. If clinical signs occur these are often due disease of the lungs approximately 3 to 4 months post infection.

Roundworm is a common internal parasite that lives in the gastrointestinal tract of cats and kittens. Roundworm eggs can be picked up by eating infected rodents or from the kittens’ mother. The most common affects are vomiting, diarrhoea, weight loss and a pot-bellied appearance.
Hookworm is another worm that lives in the small intestine of cats. Cats can become infected by ingesting the larvae in the environment (passed in the faeces of an infected animal), by eating infected rodents, or by larval penetration of the skin. Infection is more common in kittens.
Most infected cats show no signs. Anaemia occasionally occurs and is the result of bloodsucking by the worms in the small intestine. Faeces may become loose and have a tarry consistency. Loss of appetite and weight loss may also occur with long-term infections.
Bravecto Plus treats cats for roundworm and hookworms.
