How can I store Bravecto Topical Solution for Cats?
Do not open the product pouch until you're ready to use the product. Keep away from heat and moisture exposure. Store at a temperature of 86° Fahrenheit (30° Celsius) or lower.
Remove the tube from its container shortly before applying it. Rotate the cap until a click is heard while holding the tube upright with the crimped end at the bottom. The seal will be broken. Keep the cap on the tube during dispensing; do not remove it. When you're ready, make sure the cat is standing or lying down with its back to you. Use the tube to divide the fur at the base of the head and insert the tip vertically while contacting the skin. Squeeze the full contents of the tub on the skin once you've found the proper spot. Allow the product to dry completely before using. If your cat is little, putting the entire quantity in one location can produce leaking. At any point during the year, repeat this step according to the timetable. After 8 weeks, re-administer the minimal dose if you've been exposed to Dermacentor variabilis ticks. The minimal dosage is 18.2 milligrams per kilogram. This is a single-dose topical insecticide that should be used every 12 weeks.
