Bravecto Plus is for cats with, or at risk from, mixed parasitic infestations by ticks and fleas, gastrointestinal nematodes or heartworm.
The veterinary medicinal product is exclusively indicated when use against ticks or fleas and one or more of the other target parasites is indicated at the same time.
Bravecto Plus is for the treatment of tick and flea infestations in cats providing immediate and persistent flea (Ctenocephalides felis) and tick (Ixodes ricinus) killing activity for 12 weeks. Fleas and ticks must attach to the host and commence feeding in order to be exposed to the active substance.
The product can be used as part of a treatment strategy for flea allergy dermatitis (FAD).
Bravecto Plus is for the treatment of infections with intestinal roundworm (4th stage larvae, immature adults and adults of Toxocara cati) and hookworm (4th stage larvae, immature adults and adults of Ancylostoma tubaeforme), and for the prevention of heartworm disease caused by Dirofilaria immitis for 8 weeks.
Do not use in case of hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients.
Special warnings for each target species:
Ticks and fleas need to start feeding on the host to become exposed to fluralaner; therefore the risk of the transmission of parasite borne diseases cannot be excluded.
Special precautions for use:
Care should be taken to avoid contact with the eyes of the animal.
Do not use directly on skin lesions.
In the absence of available data, treatment of kittens less than 9 weeks of age and cats less than 1.2 kg bodyweight is not recommended.
Treatment of male breeding animals is not recommended.
This product is for topical use and should not be administered orally. Oral uptake of the product at the maximum recommended dose of 93 mg fluralaner + 4.65 mg moxidectin/kg body weight induced some self-limiting salivation or single incidences of vomiting immediately after administration.
It is important to apply the dose as indicated to prevent the animal from licking and ingesting the product.
Do not allow recently treated animals to groom each other.
Do not allow treated animals to come into contact with untreated animals until the application site is dry.
