Flea and Tick Preventatives 

What is Bravecto?

Bravecto is the first oral chew for dogs to provide up to 12 weeks of protection against fleas and ticks. One chew provides broad-spectrum and long-lasting protection that starts to kill fleas within 2 hours and controls 4 tick species: black-legged tick (a.k.a. deer tick), American dog tick, brown dog tick, and lone star tick. Bravecto eliminates current flea infestations and prevents new ones from developing for 12 weeks. With one chew, Bravecto is easier to give and less to worry about for you! Bravecto requires a prescription from your veterinarian.


Dogs and puppies (over 4.4 lbs and 6 months of age or older)


  • With one dose, Bravecto resets the clock on flea and tick protection by providing effective prevention and treatment for both fleas and ticks for up to 12 weeks.

  • Close to a full year of protection with only 4 doses. No more monthly dosing!

  • No potential for messy application issues and no need to isolate from children or other pets after treatment

  • Fewer doses mean fewer chances to miss a dose decreasing the likelihood of having gaps in protection

  • Dogs love the taste!

How does Bravecto work:

After giving your dog Bravecto, the medication quickly reaches tissue fluids under your dog's skin. When fleas and ticks feed on your dog, they ingest Bravecto and die. Bravecto kills fleas, prevents flea infestations and kills ticks (black-legged tick (a.k.a. deer tick), American dog tick, and brown dog tick) for 12 weeks. Bravecto also kills lone star ticks for 8 weeks.


What is Revolution?

Revolution is a safe and simple monthly topical medication used to protect your pet from heartworms, fleas, and ear mites. It also protects dogs from ticks and sarcoptic mange and cats from roundworms and hookworms. Revolution for Dogs and Cats requires a prescription from your veterinarian. (3 Pack = 3 doses which lasts 3 months.)


Dogs (6 weeks of age or older), Cats (8 weeks of age or older)


  • Protects your pet from heartworms and fleas

  • Fights both internal and surface parasitic infections

  • Treats Sarcoptic mange in dogs

  • Treats and controls ear mites

  • Controls American Dog Tick infestation

  • Treats and controls roundworms and hookworms in cats

  • Only administered once a month

  • Safe and easy to use

How it Works:

Revolution works by penetrating the skin and entering your pet's bloodstream. Concentrations of selamectin, the active ingredient, in the tissue and bloodstream prevent heartworm disease. Selamectin also redistributes into the skin from the bloodstream and kills adult fleas, American dog ticks, and ear mites, and prevents flea eggs from hatching. It is also an anthelmintic, which means it fights to expel parasitic worms. Parasites ingest the drug when they feed on the animal's blood. Revolution is safe for pregnant and lactating pets.
