- Bravecto for Cats Small Cats
Great experience, but wary of re-use from other reviews
My experience was excellent. I struggled with fleas for years, switching brands to try to find something to knock them on the head. I was using frontline and Advantage? and could only get rid of the fleas for a couple of weeks tops and thought it was useless due to neighbouring cats and dogs that i had no control over possibly reinfesting my cats, or them just picking them back up from the dirt in the yard etc.
I decided to give Bravecto a go and BOOM! No more fleas. The cats had no noticeable adverse reaction. Usually they freak out about hav...ing the flea treatment on their back/neck as i think the usual ones are alcohol based and oily and may feel cold due to evaporation, but this time with Bravecto, they acted like they usually do, until i had applied it and released them, then they just settled right down and seemed to act like i'd not done anything to them, they were completely calm and happy as the product is just like water and i was not sure it would do much due to it's weak appearance. It's been almost a year now and i keep inspecting them regularly thinking surely they are back by now, but nothing! I'm amazed! I was worried by reviews i read after i'd used it as my cats are small compared to the average and i'm concerned it would be more potent to them. Now i'm weary to reuse it as it's obviously potent in keeping the fleas away for so long, but at the same time i do not want to go back to battling with fleas like i was. I'll keep holding out until fleas come back and then i'll probably use it again and keep my fingers crossed. They need to make a subtler version perhaps that is kinder to the animal whilst still killing off the fleas. I'm torn about the benefits and the possible harm to my beloved animals.

Not sure if working
I adopted my kitten at 8 weeks old. Took him to the vet a few days later for a check up as he needed his anal glands expressed and we also noticed some scratching. Vet found a flea on him. He administered this treatment and applied it in about 5 different spots at the back of his skull. No adverse reactions, kitty has been fine. Took a few days for the matted hair to resolve, this didnt bother me though. HOWEVER, one week after treatment my kitten has begun scratching again, in the same spot near the back of his left ear. I've tried to inspect him, but have not found anything active on his skin or fur...not sure what this is about.

No adverse reaction thankfully, but this product is absolutely useless against ticks. Both cats treated are still getting ticks attached to them. Will not be buying again, absolute waste of money!!

Would recommend/would use again/worked for us (STUPID dispenser though!)
We have 2 x new kittens (burmese now 1.8 & 1.9kg) and were using Advocate puppy and kitten from 10 weeks from the moment we brought them home. Had fleas constantly so got sick of it and used Advocate weekly instead of monthly - still more fleas. Then got sick of Advocate not working and tried Bravecto for the babies and this is what happened;
Treated them at 2pm and they scratched and scratched and scratched until I went to bed at 11pm (seriously - the scratching of fleas was vicious). Fleas were all over them (like 30 minimum on each)- fleas...
