How does Bravecto Plus Topical Solution for Cats work?
Moxidectin and fluralaner are the main components in this medication. Moxidectin belongs to the milbemycin category of macrocyclic lactones and serves to block correct nervous system activity in systemic parasites. It seeks out and binds to the glutamate-gated chloride and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) channels, causing hyperpolarization, paralysis, and parasite death. Fluralaner is an isoxazoline-substituted benzamide derivative that operates in arthropods to prevent appropriate nervous system function. To produce paralysis, it targets ligand-gated chloride channels.
