Consult your dog’s vet regarding the vomiting, and the vet will give you the new dose of Bravecto. Redosing is important because vomiting within 3 hours can cause the Bravecto Chew to be removed from the system, and your dog will not be protected from ticks and fleas anymore.
In case your dog vomits after 4 hours or so after taking Bravecto Chew, consult the vet about what to do, but do not redose your pet since the medication is likely to have been absorbed within your dog’s system already, and your dog has received the protection needed against fleas and ticks. Most of the time redosing is not needed after 4 fours if vomiting occurs because the vomit will no longer contain the Bravecto Chew.
