I've been using Bravecto on Jackson who is 16 months old since he was 6 months old. My vet recommended it. He doesn't really like the taste so I break it up into smaller pieces and hid it in his canned limited ingredient food [he also eats Fromm adult large dog dry food too] my vet said it was OK to break it up. I like that it's a 3 month dose and I plan on giving it to him 4x a year for full year protection. He has had no ticks or fleas. Someone above said it didn't kill the deer tick, it does. I live in Connecticut, which is the original Lyme state in a rural area where there are herds of deer! Below is a short product description from Allivet, which is where I get the Bravecto and his heartworm medicine. Much cheaper than the vet and other vendors. He has had no side effects and has had a sensitive digestive system since he was a puppy, no pizza crusts for him! Pure pumpkin mixed with cut up chicken is a miracle ‘drug’. I freeze the canned pumpkin in an ice cube tray so I can have it on hand when needed. He won’t eat the pumpkin on his food, only from a bowl with the chicken. Mr. Fussy!
From Allivet - ‘Bravecto is a convenient tasty chew that kills fleas, prevents flea infestations, and kills ticks (black-legged tick i.e. Deer tick, American dog tick, and brown dog tick) for 12 weeks. Bravecto also kills lone star ticks for 8 weeks. Bravecto works fast, stays strong, lasts long. 1 chewable tablet per package. See Allivet's Flea and Tick Chart to find which flea and tick product is best for your pet.’
Allivet has a flea and tick chart along with a heartworm chart, which is very helpful when selecting products. Plus, there are a lot of customer reviews.
Hope this helps
