- Bravecto for Cats Large Cats
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
Purchased in July 2020 at Petbarn for $28.00.
No Ill effects
Chevy is about 4 years old and 5kg. We moved to area with lots of ticks and I’d be picking one off him every second day. I was going away for work and couldn’t expect pet sitter to check and remove ticks so went ahead with Bravecto. I did research and looked into natural alternatives too but couldn’t risk him getting sick with paralysis tick when I wasn’t there and as the vet said it’s worth the risk or treating any side affect than him dying of paralysis tick. So I ended up giving in. Simple application. He didn’t seem too fussed at all. Was a...bit quiet for couple of days but no visible symptoms. I feel like he may have felt a bit off because of the ticks that had already got on him and fed. I was satisfied he was ok when I left and two months later I’m home and he is is happy normal self. I believe it’s hit and miss like with any medication for animals or yourself. Anyone is susceptible to reactions. If using monitor them and take them to vet immediately if affected. It’s a risk I was willing to take even though I dislike chemicals and medications. Chevy is happy and I haven’t seen a tick on him since. Breaks my heart to hear of other reviews of their babies getting sick. I’m so sorry
- Bravecto for Cats Medium Cats
My cats were treated with Bravecto for cats 9.10.18 with medium ( blue box ) ..one cat is lethargic , the other nauseous.. I have itching on my face due to normal contact with them ie. Patting or them laying on me ... update 14.10.18 my cats have settled back to normal now and the itching on my face has stopped I think my cats and I had a mild reaction ... I will use this product again in the future.. I will just be more aware of direct contact with my cats for the first week after applying the spot in ... protection from paralysis tick bite...is essential .. nearly 3 months on from my first review I'm happy to report my 2 cats are doing great they have had no more side effects and are comfortable and happy without fleas and they have had no ticks ... I will definitely use this product again ..
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.
