What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.


Bravecto is a chewable medication indicated for the treatment and prevention of flea infestations for dogs, as well as for the treatment and control of ticks including the black-legged tick, American dog tick, brown dog tick, and lone star tick. 

Treatment for these parasitic insects with Bravecto is suitable for dogs 6 months of age or older and weighing more than 4.4 pounds. 

The active ingredient in Bravecto is fluralaner. Each individual chew is formulated to provide a minimum dose of 11.4 mg per lb / 25mg per kg of body weight. 

NOTE: Bravecto has not been proven to be effective for puppies less than 6 months of age. Bravecto is not effective against lone star ticks beyond 8 weeks after dosing.


Bravecto should be administered orally as a single dose every 12 weeks and in accordance to this dosage guideline:
