The first time I used Bravecto Plus both cats seemed fine, however after the second dose one was super lethargic, spaced out and confused with dilated pupils and unsteady on his feet. He's now got a large sore and hair loss where it was applied which is only getting worse by the day. The other cat freaked out when it was applied, trying his hardest to run away. He's never had this reaction to Advocate before. I reported these symptoms to the Bravecto call line and was told they're normal. Anything that causes cognitive issues, open sores and hair loss is not something that should be anywhere near an animal.
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.

Cats are supposed to have healthy coats
Our pet seemed normal at first, the treatment was placed behind neck as advised. We begin to notice small bald patches & believed he had ringworm. We treated this with a bought wash& expected a full recovery, fool the operative word. Several vet trips, & poisonings later, we now have the answer thanks to finding this. The vet who said fleas had caused his condition, & without asking about his prior dose gave him more flea treatment, I'd done it a few days prior!!! I am amazed our mate Moonie Mungbean is still alive, I can now treat the baldness...& give back his happy life, I told my hubby that MM looked like he'd had chemo, I hope this makes others wonder as it is us. I feel so cruel & stupid, I wonder how vets must feel about promoting products that they know cause these issues or does the money pouring in for treating them blind their conscience??? I had to borrow money for the last vet visit to be told I needed $270 more to see a "specialist", I saw this instead. Not only do I want a refund for the several products but I want a refund from the vets who charged me to poison my family member, Moonie Mungbean is not a 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

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!

My beautiful rag doll has licked all of the fur off of his nether regions.
Applied liquid onto my 11 year old rag doll cat about 2 months ago, fleas gone but now so is his fur from completely licking it all off. He’s wearing a cone to stop the licking but as soon as it’s off he’s biting and scratching as if the fleas never left. I’ve given him 3 baths and blow drys ( he likes it so it’s not the worst) yet it doesn’t stop. My cat is extremely uncomfortable after using this product and I have no idea how to make him stop. He is clearly itchy to the point it’s making him crazy. He’s a very active in your face cat now reduced to this sad animal with a cone on who lays around all day. He’s lost weight and all his joys in life. I have no idea what to do but this garbage is the reason.

- Bravecto for Cats Medium Cats
PARALYZED OUR CAT....CLASS ACTION REQUIRED
After application of bravecto in the afternoon we thought that our cats fleas were gone. Then after a nap our cat woke up as a completely different cat. She was disorientated, lost and unable to walk, balance or even stand. Her pupils were completely dilated, feverish, elevated heart rate, elevated blood pressure and shallow rapid breathing. After $1800 and a night in hospital our cat is not better...From reading all the fact post application and subsequent illness. I believe it is time for a class action suit toward the manufacturer...As a health professional am beyond belief how this product is allowed in public.

BRAVECTO paralyzed my cat
I used this on my cat on August 30, 2019 and two weeks later she began to limp and run a high fever. From there it progressed to a persistent high fever, lethargy, no appetite, weight loss, painful front legs, rigidness down the spine and back legs and rapid breathing. She was a perfectly healthy cat prior to using Bravecto. This stuff is absolutely terrifying. Do not use Bravecto on your cat. Ever.

Bravecto should be Jailed and sued
My Tabby Ragdoll has severe hair loss along with skin sores, but the worst was his behavior. He was have bad neurologic and/or brain issues. He is really lethargic and slept most of the time. he walked right past a snake near my home and he didn't flinch, which was completely ab-normal for him. He would absolutely lost himself when he saw a snake. He also started to be savage and wanted to attack his best mate and myself and anyone who tried to pat him, which never happened, he has always been a happy social cat. my other seal point cat also ha...d skin reactions and hair loss. Do not use this product It should be banned The company should be sued and/or jailed for animal cruelty Eumundi Range road VET recommended this product.

My cat is now paralyzed because of this product!
My kitty Luna was a year old rambunctious, happy go lucky, and very vocal kitty. After applying this awful poison she had a terrible reaction to it. She behaved demon possessed!! Scratching wildly, panting, sneezing, coughing, and had swollen eyes. I called the vet immediately and he advised to quickly wash it off with dawn dish detergent and give benadryl. I did as told. She hasn't been the same since and a week later she cannot move her hind legs. She is at the vet as I type this and I can only pray that she comes out of it.
The vet called a...

Severe Side Effects
Day 1 after application of Bravest Plus.
Chunks of hair loss, and red raw skins at the application site.
Now we have the added worry of further risk to the cats health.
We also have the added costs of a trip to the Vet and treatment.
Cat has never had a reaction to any of the other treatments used over the years!

Do Not Use This On Your Cats
I took my 2 cats in to see their feline vet about 2 months ago. Both of my cats became sick. Extreme lethargy, wouldn't eat for 3 days, throwing up. I almost took one of my cats to the emergency vet because I did not know if she would make it through the night. Now my male is acting like he has lost his hearing. I wonder if Bravecto could be the cause

Questions & Answers
This is the second time after giving my cat the 3mth. Bravecto treatment for worms etc. she has been throwing up . What is the cause?
Honestly I’d take your cat to the vet. My cat has only had one dose of bravecto but has lost all his hair on his neck and I’m now having to use antibiotic cream as it got infected from him scratching at the stuff burning his skin. I’m so mad at this brand and how they can even be recommended by vets
My 3.5 year old healthy cat had bravecto about 3 weeks ago and is still suffering symptoms. Hair loss on the back of his neck, very lethargic and lost some use of his back legs. I took him to the vets and there is nothing they can do. He is slowly becoming himself again. I do not recommend this product at all! It’s dangerous and should not be sold at all!
Bravecto plus was used on my 13 yr old cat by the Vet in NZ. Not long after at home he became weird. He was wobbly when walking, he stopped eating but drinking a lot of water, his pupils were dilated, he looked like he was having a stroke, he was very confused. I took him back to the Vets who took a lot of blood tests. The Vet thought he had meningitis with the symptoms he had. He turned 14yrs in March 2021 and my daughter gave him another dose of Bravecto when I was away, he developed the same symptoms as before. He seems very confused when I call him he doesn't appear to know where he is. I am worried now that it is the Bravecto as I know the Vet did not test him for toxity. I phoned the Vet last week and the Receptionist tells me Bravecto is safe but I have a gut feeling it is Bravecto that has caused him to be like this. Not sure what to do now. shouls I contact Merc?
Yes I would. I called and the representative took my information, provided action number, and said to call them if any additional concerns and/or I needed to take my cat to the vet. Luckily, the 3 cats that lost hair didn't have any further issues. Good luck and no more of this toxic dangerous product!
He is a beautiful intelligent Pedigree Birman and now when he walks his head tilts to the side. He gets confused when outside not knowing where to go. Hes not eating much but drinks a lot of water.
Will large cat size Bravecto Topicle harm an 11 pound cat?
I would say yes! My cat was ick named Garfield. 4 days after I gave it to him, he started to stop eating. We went to the vet. They took blood. It was all over the place. His routine check up had been just 8 day's prior, thats when I bought the Bravecto. We tested his Urine. No problems there. He is now home and on an IV fluid bag. He eats only when I carry the smooshed food to him. He drinks if I carry water to him. I wish I had stayed with monthly doses.
