Body Weight Ranges (lb)  /   Fluralaner content (mg)/tube   /    Tubes Administered

>9.9 – 22.0 lbs                                      250 mg                                        One
>22.0 – 44.0 lbs                                    500 mg                                        One

* Dogs over 123.0 lb should be administered the appropriate combination of tubes 
 
Step 1: Immediately before use, open the pouch and remove the tube. Hold the tube at the crimped end with the cap in an upright position (tip up). The cap should be rotated clockwise or counter clockwise one full turn. The cap is designed to stay on the tube for dosing and should not be removed. The tube is open and ready for application when a "click" is heard or felt. This indicates that the seal is broken and product can be applied to the dog.
 
Step 2: The dog should be standing or lying with its back horizontal during application. Part the fur at the administration site. Place the tube tip vertically against the skin between the shoulder blades of the dog.
 
Step 3: Squeeze the tube and gently apply Bravecto in one or more spots starting between the shoulder blades and continuing along the dog's back. Avoid applying an excessive amount of solution in any one spot which may cause some solution to run or drip off of the dog.
 
Bathing or water immersion 3 days after administration will not reduce the effectiveness of Bravecto against fleas and Ixodes ricinus ticks.
