There are very few places in the world where there are no fleas. In warmer climates, fleas are present all year round while in more mild climates fleas are present mainly from late spring through to late autumn, and even longer thanks to central heating. To be on the safe side Bravecto Chew for Dogs should be administered every 3 months all year round to avoid giving flea populations a chance to build up in your home.
No, there is no difference in efficacy between dogs that swallow a Bravecto chew compared to those that chew the tablet before swallowing.
When fleas are in the process of dying their movements become uncoordinated. This may cause a skin sensation which can result in increased scratching by the dog. However, this phenomenon is quickly resolved once the fleas are dead (Bravecto Chew for Dogs provides effective control within 8 hours for fleas).
Fleas can continually re-infest treated dogs – either from juvenile flea life stages that have just matured to adults in the household or from fleas that jump onto the dog when outside or visiting other homes. Bravecto will quickly kill these fleas. Also, as fleas die, they can move from the skin surface where they feed, to the tips of the hairs in the coat, making them more visible to the human eye.
The fleas you see on your pet are fleas which have newly emerged from their cocoons in the home or outdoor environment and jumped on your dog. These fleas will die quickly. This is because only a small percentage of the flea population is on your dog. Most of the flea population exists as immature stages (eggs, larvae and pupae) in your dog’s surroundings. It takes some time to clean out a flea population in the house. To help speed this process up, you should clean your house thoroughly (for example, by washing your dog’s bedding and vacuuming their favorite spots in the house) to help reduce the number of immature fleas in carpets, cracks and crevices. In case of a serious infestation, it may take some time to control the infestation. But any fleas you see on your dog a few days to weeks after treatment probably represent re-infestation from fleas emerging from cocoons in the environment. Bravecto Chew for Dogs’ flea protection lasts for 3 months - during this period, there is no need to re-treat your dog.
