You may have seen/heard or will see/hear reports claiming the flea and tick prevention Bravecto is not safe for dogs. The manufacturer of Bravecto, Merck Animal Health, is stating that these claims are being made without supporting medical or scientific proof. We wanted to bring you the facts, directly from the company that makes the product and from our own professional and personal experiences. We have sold hundreds of doses over the past 2 years. A lot of our staff even use Bravecto for their own pets. On a rare occasion we get reports of mild tummy upset. Any medication comes with the risk of possible side effects, but it is our professional opinion that Bravecto is still a safe and valued tool in the fight against fleas and ticks. For further information or if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to call Merck at 800-224-5318.
