DO NOT USE!!!!
Please everyone do not use Bravecto or Bravecto Plus. My poor kitty has been scratching nonstop since application and has scratched the entire application site raw. Very scary product. She is suffering.
Not enough space to tell you how bad this poison is. It nearly killed our cat, had to go on a drip but getting better!
Photo of her laid on my hand was a week before having the flea treatment and other 3 are afterwards looking sad and trying to get her to eat a treat stick.

Do not buy this ever!! my cat has died from it
48 hours post a get giving my girl this treatment my cat got serious blood poisoning. I happened to be working from home that day, had I not she would have died before I made it home. A few months later she had blood cancer which in the end caused her death. Please do not buy this stuff - I’m devastated. Vets get a commission to sell you this stuff snd say it is safe - there’s so many horrific stories out there. I’m still figuring the fight to get it banned.

One of our two cats has serious side effects after applying (as per VET recommendation)
14 days ago (8th May 2021) we treated both our cats with Bravecto (supplied by our vet). Administered to the upper back of the neck under their collar so they could not lick it.
I was previously using Frontline Plus, but the vet said to switch to Bravecto because fleas have become resistant to Frontline, and one of the cats had brought fleas inside (YUK). Apart from the fleas, BOTH cats were healthy, having been checked by the vet approximately two weeks prior to the application of Bravecto.
Both cats were very inactive for the first week afte...

Wish I researched first. I never would have purchased.
April 27, 2021, I took the medication out of the plastic bag, put my gloves on as suggested by vet tech and then applied the Bravecto to the back of my cats neck. Told everyone in the house not to touch the cat were his neck is wet as the medication is toxic to the touch (RED FLAG). I should have known better.
Same day, clumps of hair were falling off of my cat, unusual but possibly a reaction and no bald spot to worry, so I kept an eye. Next couple of days, he starts losing energy, I chalked it up to maybe age as he is 17years old. Six days in...

Will he die?
I purchased Bravecto for the first time almost two weeks ago. I have used other topical monthly flea drops but never this. This said 6 months. That was my first red flag it was strong. My 15yr old has beginning stage adrenal failure but very healthy still UNTIL THIS! He's was fat and never missed a meal. He even would steal the dogs food...that was before this poison. From 18lbs to 8lbs. He first hid. Then slowly walked out. i didn't really notice for a week. A week later he is increasingly worse! His body aches, his jaw hurts, his coat is fal...ling out, he eats only wet food on a dish presented where he is sleeping because he walks squatting down. He has to be carried to the litter box or will pee where he lies. I called the vet 4 days ago and washed the area. I asked how to reverse this. There is NOTHING! I bring him in today for fluids and any other support they can give him. I had a gut feeling when buying this I ignored because of the savings. Now that 30$ a month may kill my boy.

- Bravecto for Cats Medium Cats
Bravecto Plus caused hair loss in 1 cat, wobbliness in 2nd cat, third cat no problem
Bravecto Plus applied 5 days ago. Cat 1 (10 yr old) hair is coming off in big clumps and there’s redness and a scab forming in an area she can’t scratch and she vomited fresh food twice, cat 2 (6 yr old) was foaming a bit, paranoid and wobbly. Cat 3 (5 yr old) has had no adverse reactions which is odd as she’s usually the sensitive one and is on special food.
Will never buy this again. If it had this effect on just a few children it would be taken off the shelves. Sickening they let our fur babies suffer.
Update: used a wet facewasher with Malaseb to wipe off the oily residue and both cats returned to normal behaviour almost immediately. Fur is not coming off in clumps anymore a few days later.

Nearly killed my cat
My vet gave this treatment to my cat saying it was the best thing. A few hours later she was drooling, twitching all over, panting, retching, lost control of her bowels and floppy. I washed the residue off her in the hope that would help. Today she is so floppy and still retching. I emailed my vet but got no response. I will NEVER use that vet again. My poor cat. I wouldgive this product no stars if i could.

I won't use this again
My 10 year old boy was given Brave to Plus 2 days ago. He's lethargic & has hair loss on his neck. I feel so bad for him. I'll be reporting it to the vet when they reopen tomorrow. Never again!! It's poison.

Do Not Use This Product !!!
Accurate facts : this medication should not be sold ! The side effects are horrible ! Lethargy, shallow breathing , our 6 year old cat was spaced out completely. What the hell is in this stuff , and why is it aloud to still be sold ! I have only found all this info about how terrible this product is after giving my cat . I hope people get to see this and all the other reviews and AVOID !!!

My cat has developed red itchy patches over her eyes. Seems to be an allergic response. Product was very sticky on the back of her neck and stayed sticky for a week.

Works, but somethings wrong
We used the spot on. The product definitely protects and eliminates againsts fleas ticks and worms, however it comes at risk. Our kitty changes after he receives this. Goes weird and his personality changes. Runs around like crazy, Pupils change and he pants then sleeps. The next time we used it, it was even worse. He had a small seizure. I didn’t know really what was happening. We decided to wash it off and not to apply it again. We are now on the lookout for something new and not so harsh. Surely companies can come up with something gentler on our fur babies.

Cat had an Allergic reaction !
My Cat had an allergic reaction to this stuff, she wouldn't stop scratching and licking still 8hrs later !! Bathed her to get it off. She did not have bad fleas.
Do not let vet give to your cat!
I hesitated 2x after my vet wanted to apply this to my cat. Last time I agreed and my cat now has a bald spot where this was applied. This cannot be good for my cat!!! He just got over a 6 week bout with anal Gland surgery and now this??? I hope this stuff does not hurt him further or this company will have problems with me!!! I also want my $50 Back for the added stress and to keep my cat from itching! Poison!

Questions & Answers
Is this supposed to work for worms in cats? I applied it a week ago and cat still has worms.
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.
Tess, thank you for posting that ! My cat had a reaction to this and for the next 8 hours she wouldn't stop scratching and licking poor thing, she has got lots of allergies. I read your post and quickly bathed her, washed it off the back of the neck, she's dried and seems much happier now and has stopped scratching too !!
I have applied Bravecto incorrectly. My cat has licked the site of application. Will this harm my cat?
