Administered Bravecto Plus to my cat 10 days ago. Now hair loss and irritation on shoulder. Applied to back of head. Did not have this problem with Bravecto flea and tick. Must be an ingredient for the wormer. Same problem with Revolution.

Scabs on my perfectly fine baby girl!
Noticed scabs on my furbaby within 48 hours of application. Scabs on eyelid, outside both ears, dry skin flaking off the product application site, a scabby tit.. I don't know what else will happen tomorrow but hopefully nothing else. My poor cat is suffering because I listened to the vet. I'm very disappointed. I want my money back
Poison is what it states.
Three months ago advised by my vet to use Bravecto. So I applied it to my healthy affectionate 8yr old female Tabby as directed. She did not like me doing this as if trying to tell me something and tried to get away. I thought maybe it was the smell. She ran away and hid. Hours later she came back but was not herself she was lethargic, did not want anyone to touch her and would not eat or drink. She just laid there floppy. I had a gut feeling Bravecto was the cause. I thought maybe she'd got a snake bite or something after running off. Maybe sh...e was tired. No this was not like her at all. So I let her rest as I was observing her and she eventually came around and has been fine since then. She's due for it again now. Yesterday I bought Bravecto Plus but as purchasing it I had reservations. Today I thought I'd look up reviews etc on this product before applying it but even before reading reviews, I had serious doubts about using it a second time yet my vet says it's fine. Is it fine I thought? It states POISON in capital letters on the top of the box and on the information sheet inside. Then I read the reviews and got in touch with my niece who is a vet near London. I can't say what she said but I can say there is NO way I will be applying it to my cat. I sincerely hope for the sake of all cats out there this stuff is taken off the market and ceases to be manufactured.

Side effects - paranoia
Within a short time after applying Bravecto between my cat's shoulder blades, he started acting strange. He seemed paranoid about everything and disoriented in his familiar surroundings. He continues to be easily frightened even after four months since we applied the last treatment. I thought the first time was just due to changing products but after the second time and the same reaction, I really think he is having a neurologic reaction to it. I will not be buying Bravecto again even though the vet's office highly recommended it. I would not recommend using it at all.

Bravecto Plus - DO NOT USE
I live in New Zealand I used this on my three cats today. One cat within 4 hours of use developed ataxia involving loss of use of back legs, head tremor and has had to go into the Vet for overnight observation in case she developed fits. I am yet to find out whether she will make a full recovery. Even though the data sheet warns that neurological side effects can occur, it only states in less than 0.1% of cases. I had treated my other two cats at the same time but after reading your reviews, I decided to do my best to wash off the product ...as much as possible in case they met the same fate. My cat who is currently in hospital with this has had to have her fur shaved and it fully removed from her skin and is currently on a drip. I am now keeping my fingers crossed and am in for a very long night. I will never use this product again and I would advise anyone thinking that a 3 in 1 treatment is the better option to think again. Vets should not be recommending the use of this product.

Brevecto medium flee, tick treatment.
My Rag doll cat has been given this Brevecto flee treatment twice now and I won’t subject him to it again! Serious sickness and diarrhea, Massive weight loss and he didn’t have much weight on him to start with, vets not concerned. He is showing all the Horrible side effects listed. Why would I subject my loved pet to that, he must be feeling miserable.

My cat was very ill with worms, this stuff made him better
My big 6 y/o boy was vomiting and lethargic and I treated him with bravecto plus to worm him and within 24 hrs his appetite returned, the vomiting has stopped, he is happy and playful again with his adopted brother, his coat is healthy again though he did experience some discomfort(itching) at the back of his neck and some minor hair loss
But, I am grateful to say he is now a very happy boy
I’m so sorry to hear other people’s sad stories
I was shocked when I read these reviews so I had to do my own
I beg you - do not use this!
I took my cat to the vet because he had fleas and he was sneezing. Six weeks after using Bravecto, to the day, he was dead. Read the side effects for any medication you give to your pet. Be very sure of the product's safety. Here is a quote from the manufacturer's website: "Fluralaner is a member of the isoxazoline class. This class has been associated with neurologic adverse reactions including tremors, ataxia, and seizures." Yes neurological adverse reactions! My cat started, odd repetitive behavior, then mild ticks, then seizures, walking in...circles, blindness, the ability to hold his head up, bleeding from his nose, and death. He was a healthy, active, normal six year old cat. Research any and all medications! Know what you're giving your pet!

Buyer beware it may kill your cat
Bravecto Plus was used on my cat. 24 hours later she was vomitting, lathargic, high temp, and had severe toxicity poisoning, which has resulted in a urinary tract infection. Braveto dont care as she is 1 out of 10,000 cases, and it is stated as a known cause. Disgusting
I do NOT reccomend this product!
I took a feral cat I feed to vet to get shaved because of mats, fleas & ticks. Vet suggested this product because it lasted 3 months vet it on him, within a month he has ticks can't tell about fleas. It didn't last 1 full month. Now I'm scared to put another treatment on him in a short time period.

My cat is really acting strangely since his first Braveto.
My head boy of three adopted cats after fostering has been acting really strangely. He has been consistent in coming in and out of our cat flap to eat and sleep. Since using Bravecto he has hidden away and when eventually coaxed out to lay on the lawn looking like he had no idea where he was or what to do. He has now hidden outside under our man cave. This is so worrying and need advice on how to look after him.

My fur baby left with huge red bald patch
Within a day of treatment my poor cat started scratching the area and it ended up red and the bald the area about the size of a golf ball. I had to give him an antihistamine to stop scratching. I was instructed to have an injection type of medication next time and he’s reacted to that as well.

DO NOT USE!!!!!!
We have two cats, one male, who is 17 years old and a female who is approximately 14 years old. They have never been on Bravecto before. I have always used Frontline in the past. All I have to say is it nearly killed our 17 year old male cat. He was vomiting profusely, was as weak as a day old kitten, had uncontrollable bowel movements, and was affected neurologically as well; he was walking off kilter and his tail was quivering like a rattlesnake's tail. It was very bizarre. He acted confused and would not eat which has never happened bef...ore as he is canned food crazy. After experiencing all this, my poor cat crawled in the closet and hid like he was preparing himself to die. We were very concerned so I started looking online for the side effects of Bravecto. The first thing I saw was a class action lawsuit against the company for not advising of the serious possibly life-threatening side effects in dogs, as Bravecto for dogs has apparently caused many deaths. We had to call our vet that night because we thought for sure we were losing our boy and were going to have to take him to put him to sleep, or he was just going to die in the closetthat night. The vet advised us to take some Dawn dish soap and water and sponge down the application area on both cats as much as we could to get the Bravecto off of their skin. I think that is the only thing that saved our male cat's life. The next day he gradually got better and seems to be somewhat back to his old self. However, at the application site he is losing his hair. There is a strip of a bald spot there but the vet advised it will grow back. Our female cat is also losing her hair at the application site. This stuff is a neuro toxic and poison!! Think about it, this poison stays in their blood for 3 months! I will NEVER use Bravecto again for my cats or my dog and my advice to anyone and everyone with a cat or dog family member is don't even think about giving it to your animals!!!

My cat passed away
My cat was a healthy one and a half year old beautiful baby. Put the medicine on her on Saturday and last night (Wednesday) I watched her have a seizure in front of my eyes and moan until she stopped breathing. I know it’s different for every pet but if it can happen to my baby it could happen to yours. Don't use this product.

The vet gave this a great review, instead of what I had used prior to it. He was lethargic not eating or drinking for 24hrs, then a 2" spot where it had been applied with hair loss and huge red sore. The spot is getting larger, called the vet and she gave me epiderm, which hasn't helped at all. Going to have to find another vet open now is a holiday weekend. I will never use this again, need to get him a steroid shot. The Vet assistant applied it.

My older guy has terrible skin allergies, assumably from fleas.
Vet recommended this product and it worked beautifully. After around 3 months, the scabs started forming again and we reapplied.
The third does, however, has made him terribly sick. Not eating or drinking and breathing heavily.
Took him to a different Vet who said this stuff is too strong. Gave him steroids to try and calm his skin down and fluids to try and flush him out. $400 later, he is feeling better and I am happy for that.

Killed my cats fleas with no side effects
I have a small black cat, about 10lbs. Bravecto has been effective in both killing active fleas and as a preventative. While her neck seems to itch for a day or 2 after application, she is still happy. playful and eating well.

DO NOT USE
My poor cat had a reaction to Brevecto plus, I'm still worried sick that she is not fully better and the vet bills for it are already up to over $200. She had to be shaved as the fur on her neck started falling out nearly immediately, she's had a antibiotic injection and I've been told at the 2nd vet visit that the first visit at another vet clinic really should have sedated her and done a big wash in dishwashing liquid but now it's in her system it's too late. She still has a chemical burn spot. The stress I went through worrying that she might die has been horrendous!

Don't risk it!
I applied Bravecto spot on for medium cats to my 4.5kg cat. The next day she was wobbly on her feet, dilated pupils, shallow heartbeat, couldn't walk for a meter or more without lying down. Read up on the product and decided to wash it off her, she was purring and docile whilst doing so which is very out of character, she did not improve after waiting a couple of hours. After reading about cats whom had similar symptoms and had died, I rushed her to the vet, she had developed ataxia after toxicity poisoning from Bravecto, $650 later, I do not recommend this product.
Questions & Answers
Is bravecto safe on 5 year old cats?What are the side affects.Which is the best one to buy.
How long does Bravetco spot-on stay in the cat's body? Our 14 year old boy had a bad reaction to it after application on 26th June. Apparently itched like hell, so much so he licked the hair of 50mm dia circle. Now he is lethargic, has diaharrea, fussywith food, not playing with his 9mth old adopted sister.
Hi the treatment is supposed to work I understand for 12 weeks but my cat had reactions neurologically within a few hours. The vet shaved and thoroughly washed the area and she was put on a drip to try and flush the toxins out of her body. My other two cats were treated at the same time and thankfully have had no reaction. Perhaps take your boy to the vets for blood work because apart from the diarrhoea my cat was left the same symptoms and something has attacked her red blood cells causing anaemia. Hope he comes right very soon.
How does one trace Fluralener in an autopsy? My healthy 10-year-old cat died within hours of administering Bravecto spot on for medium cats. Autopsy so far has shown nothing and is "inconclusive" although all organs appear within healthy ranges and no other cause of death apparent.
