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.

When fleas are in the process of dying their movements become uncoordinated. This may cause a skin sensation which can result in increased scratching of the dog. However, this phenomenon is quickly resolved once the fleas are dead.
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 pet 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.
