How does NexGard Spectra work?
NexGard Spectra is a new way of treating flea and tick infestations in dogs. Its active ingredients kill fleas before they lay eggs and treat other common parasites quickly. One of its key ingredients - Afoxolaner directly attacks nerve cells, resulting in paralysis and eventually killing them. The rapid action of Afoxolaner kills fleas preventing the maturation of immature stages of tapeworms and thus controlling flea tapeworm infestations. The other ingredient, Milbemycin oxime, kills parasites like nematodes that live inside the body of animals. Nexgard Spectra is recommended for dogs and puppies from 8 weeks of age, providing they weigh at least 4.4 lbs.
