#12Bravecto How to Choose the Right Tick Prevention for your Dog

Hi. It's me, Cinnamon. I'm back writing about BRAVECTO® (fluralaner) that Francesca and I take. I can't even remember what its like to have fleas or one of those blood-sucking ticks. Can you?

Well, if you can, it's time to make that appointment with your veterinarian to ask about a flea and tick control that will wipe those horrible pests out! Ticks are what you get when you are having fun running through the grass. Or, sometimes, you can get one just walking out in your backyard to go potty! I heard they literally suck your blood! And they sorta blow up like balloons. Ugh!
They caught this blood sucker just in the nick of time!

Dogs need tick protection, even those dogs that only go for a walk in the park! Protect your dog and yourself. Ticks can carry diseases that can be harmful to you and your pet. See what kind of ticks are in your area and what diseases your dog might be exposed to by going to this website and selecting your state.

Now the fact is, ticks are really small. You can't see them easily until they "balloon up." So you owners out there need to check your dog for ticks carefully. If you find one, here's how to remove it.

Talk to your veterinarian to discuss which product is best for your pet. One convenient option that provides extended duration is Bravecto® (fluralaner) a tasty oral chew, that lasts for up to 12 weeks*. Bravecto takes the worry out of tick protection so you and your pet can enjoy the outdoors.

If your dog is like me, running like the wind through the grasses is part of enjoying life. I don't want anyone to spoil my quality of life just because of a stupid little insect. When I was in Bend, Oregon, we went to this dog park with a huge grassy area. They let the grass grow until it was taller than me. I could think of nothing better than running and hopping through this grass. It was pure joy!
Here I am running like the wind!
