There’s a new breakthrough in flea and tick prevention for cats, and we provide it at Delavan Lakes Veterinary Clinic.
For those of you with dogs, you may have already heard about BRAVECTO® (fluralaner), the flea and tick treatment that lasts three full months per single dose. This same easy-to-use treatment is now available for cats…only topical!
Fleas and ticks are parasites that carry diseases and other harmful properties for your cat – all year long. BRAVECTO® provides up to 12 full weeks of protection with just one topical dose.
It’s convenient, safe, and effective for all cats 6 months or older and weighing 2.6 pounds and up. With that said, always speak to your vet before administering a new treatment to your animal.
Benefits to You
Nothing beats the peace of mind that comes from knowing your cat can play outdoors without bringing harmful insects back inside with them – both for your cat’s and your own sake.
Fleas and ticks are a year-round problem. While some areas and seasons may see more activity than others, it’s important to protect your cat 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Fleas can infect your home very quickly. In addition to making your cat miserable, a female flea can lay as many as 50 eggs a day – 2,000 eggs in her lifetime! Imagine all those eggs hatching, and you have a problem.
Ticks are more than a nuisance. They carry diseases that can make your cat ill, often with Lyme disease, which is serious. Why take the risk?
Ask Your Vet
Prevent these pests the easy way, and ask your veterinarian about BRAVECTO®. It lasts three times longer than a monthly treatment and won’t rub off, wear off, or wash off. This means less treatments per year!
For guarding against fleas and ticks, BRAVECTO® is 99% effective against the pests. The treatment kills over 96% of ticks carrying Lyme disease.
