Topical flea & tick medications can be great for your dog, but they can also be messy. Not only that, but it can be tricky to remember to apply topical flea & tick medication monthly.

Nonetheless, the team at Millbrook Animal Care Clinic believes preventing fleas and ticks is critical to keeping your pet healthy.

Why? Ticks can spread debilitating diseases, and fleas can infest your home!

In Kane County, 1 in 26 dogs tested positive for Lyme disease in 2018*.
Lyme is transmitted by ticks, and can greatly damage your pet’s vital organs, joints & quality of life. Getting your dog vaccinated for Lyme and using tick prevention can lessen their risk of infection.

What can you do if you don’t like topical preventatives, but want to keep your dog safe from fleas & ticks?
Try Bravecto chews! These chewy treats are a prescription that prevents fleas & ticks for 3 months at a time. The chewy Bravecto treat is a tasty pork flavor, and Millbrook Animal Care Clinic’s canine clients are loving it!

What does Bravecto do?
Bravecto kills fleas, prevents flea infestations & kills ticks (black-legged tick, American dog tick & brown dog tick) for 12 weeks. (Reference: Bravecto [prescribing information]. Summit, NJ: Merck Animal Health; 2014.)

Is Bravecto safe?
Bravecto is safe for dogs that are 6 months or older and at least 4.4lbs. It is also approved for use in pregnant and nursing dogs. This is a prescription-only medication, so one of our doctors must prescribe it for your pet.
