Did you know fleas can cause allergy dermatitis and ticks can cause anemia in cats? That’s why it’s so important to protect your feline friend from these parasites with a year-round preventive medication. Animal Clinic of Milford recommends the new topical formulation of Bravecto® for cats. With just one dose, you can protect your cat from adult fleas and ticks for up to 12 weeks!
Bravecto was initially introduced to pet owners two years ago for dogs only as a flea and tick preventive in a chewable tablet form. Now, this FDA-approved preventive is available for cats as a spot-on medication and is just as effective as the tablets. This topical medication can be administered to cats that are 6 months of age or older and weigh at least 2.6 pounds.
