Flea and Tick Prevention – How Bravecto® Protects Your Dog

DOGS

Posted by bravectosouthafrica - 14 December 2018

With summer in full swing and the warmer weather, ticks, fleas and mites are also looking for some holiday treats for themselves. Unfortunately for them, if your dog is protected by Bravecto®, your dog is not on their snack list!

Although ticks, fleas and mites aren’t taking a summer holiday, the good news is that with routine Bravecto® chews, you and your pooch don’t have to be phased! The adventures are endless with 12 weeks of protection provided by one tasty chew. Here are just a few ways to enjoy some summer fun:

Take a hike:

Going on a hike with your fur-kid often comes with the aftermath of having to frantically look for ticks and fleas on your pooch. Luckily, with Bravecto®, you and your pooch can go for a walk without having to worry about any unwanted passengers threatening the health of your dog. The potential risks ticks pose to pets can be stressful to pet owners wanting to ensure their pet receives effective coverage. Bravecto® kills multiple different species of ticks commonly found on dogs, including the two most common in South Africa that transmit Biliary. Need some ideas on where you can go hiking? Take a look at our favourite dog-friendly hikes here.

A trip to the beach:

Because Bravecto® works from the inside out, immediately bathing, shampooing, or swimming doesn’t affect how well a Bravecto® chew works! That means that you and your pooch can enjoy long days at the beach, splashing in the water and come back home knowing your pawed pal is still protected against ticks, fleas and mites!

Hit the road:

Take a trip to one of the many great Pet Friendly destinations we have in South Africa. When travelling with your pooch, there are usually a hundred things to keep in mind. With a single Bravecto® chew, your dog gets 12 weeks of tick and flea protection with a single treatment. That’s 3x longer than monthly treatments. This makes it easy for you to provide long-lasting coverage to your dog, without having to worry about remembering frequent treatments. With just one chew, your dog is all taken care of, so you can enjoy all of the activities you love to do together. Take a look at our Bravecto® Reminder App here.
