Help pet owners understand the difference of Bravecto Topical so you can improve compliance:

  • With no need to remove a cap, the Twist'n'Use applicator makes it easy to use2,3 – especially with finicky pets
  • With fewer potential gaps in protection for 12 weeks*2,4 than with monthly topical treatments, it helps with the challenge of poor compliance
