How to Administer Bravecto Topical Solution:
Step 1: Immediately before use, open the pouch and remove the tube. Hold the tube at the crimped end with the cap in an upright position (tip up). The cap should be rotated clockwise or counterclockwise one full turn. The cap is designed to stay on the tube for dosing and should not be removed. The tube is open and ready for application when a breaking of the seal is felt.
Step 2: The animal should be standing or lying with its back horizontal during application. Part the fur at the administration site. Place the tube tip vertically against the skin between the shoulder blades of the animal.
Step 3: Squeeze the tube and gently apply the product in one or more spots starting between the shoulder blades and continuing along the animal’s back. Avoid applying an excessive amount of solution in any one spot which may cause some solution to run or drip off the animal.
Bathing or water immersion after administration will not reduce the effectiveness of this product against fleas and Ixodes ricinus ticks.
