The safety of fluralaner in breeding, pregnant and lactating dogs has been demonstrated. Bravecto spot-on can be used in breeding, pregnant and lactating dogs.

Fluralaner was well tolerated in Collies with a deficient multidrug-resistance-protein 1 (MDR1 -/-) following single oral administration at 3 times the maximum recommended dose (168 mg/kg body weight). No treatment-related clinical signs were observed.
Less than 1.5% of dogs treated in clinical trials developed mild and transient skin reactions such as erythema (reddened skin) or hair loss at the application site.
