Pharmacodynamic properties

Fluralaner is an acaricide and insecticide. It is efficacious against ticks (Ixodes spp., Dermacentor spp. , and Rhipicephalus sanguineus) and fleas (Ctenocephalides spp.) on the dog. Fluralaner is systemically active on target parasites. Contact activity against ticks and fleas is of minor relevance. Fluralaner is a potent inhibitor of parts of the arthropod nervous system by acting antagonistically on ligand-gated chloride channels (GABA-receptor and glutamate-receptor). In a molecular on target study, Fluralaner is not affected by dieldrin resistance. In vitro, Fluralaner overcomes resistance against amidines, organophosphates, cyclodienes, macrocyclic lactones, phenylpyrazoles, benzophenyl ureas, pyrethroids and carbamates. In vivo, Fluralaner is highly effective against fleas proven to be less susceptible to phenylpyrazole insecticides.

Pharmacokinetic particulars

Following oral administration, Fluralaner is readily absorbed reaching maximum plasma concentrations within one day. Food enhances the absorption. Fluralaner is systemically distributed and reaches the highest concentrations in the visceral fat, followed by liver, kidney and muscle. The prolonged persistence and slow elimination from plasma (t½ = 12 days) and the lack of extensive metabolism provide effective concentrations of Fluralaner for the duration of the inter-dosing interval, ensuring efficacy for 12 weeks. The major route of elimination is the excretion of unchanged Fluralaner in faeces (~90 % of the dose). Renal clearance is the minor route of elimination.


  • Use with caution in dogs with pre-existing epilepsy.

  • Keep the product in the original packaging until use.
  • Do not use in case of hypersensitivity to fluralaner or to any of the excipients.
  • Can be used in breeding, pregnant and lactating dogs.
  • Bravecto® is well tolerated in MDR1 dogs following oral administration.

Although this remedy has been extensively tested under a large variety of conditions, failure thereof may ensue as a result of a wide range of reasons. If this is suspected, seek veterinary advice and notify the registration holder.

BRAVECTO® was well tolerated following oral administration to puppies aged 8 - 9 weeks and weighing 2,0 - 3,6 kg at doses of up to 56, 168 and 280 mg Fluralaner/kg body weight (equivalent to 1, 3 and 5 times the maximum expected clinical dose) on 3 occasions at 8-week intervals. No treatment-related adverse effects were observed.

There were no findings on reproductive performance and offspring viability when up to 168 mg/kg of Fluralaner (equivalent to 3 times the maximum treatment dose) was administered orally to Beagle dogs.


BRAVECTO® was shown to be effective* against fleas and various tick species.

* Efficacy > 90 - 95 %

BRAVECTO® is indicated for the treatment of the following:

Ticks:(Ixodes ricinus, Ixodes hexagonus, Ixodus scapularis, Dermacentor reticulatus, Dermacentor variabilis and Rhipicephalus sanguineus)

Directly after treatment, at least 90 % of ticks on the dog are killed within 8 hours. During the whole treatment interval, at least 90 % of ticks on dogs are killed within 12 hours.

Fleas:Ctenocephalides felis

Directly after treatment, at least 95 % of fleas are killed within 8 hours. During the whole treatment interval, at least 95 % of fleas on dogs are killed within 12 hours.

Effect on immature stages

The product kills adult as well as juvenile ticks (larvae, nymphs). Newly emerged fleas on a dog are killed before viable eggs are produced. An in vitro study also demonstrated that very low concentrations of Fluralaner stop the production of viable eggs by fleas.

Control of Flea Infestations and Flea Allergy Dermatitis (FAD)

The flea life cycle is broken due to the rapid onset action and long lasting efficacy against adult fleas on the animal and the absence of viable egg production. BRAVECTO® effectively controls environmental flea populations in areas to which the dog has access. BRAVECTO® can be used as part of a treatment strategy for flea allergy dermatitis (FAD).


Light to dark brown chewable tablet with a smooth or slightly rough surface and circular shape. Some marbling, speckles or both may be visible. Packaged in aluminium foil blister with aluminium foil lid stock.
