How does it work?
Nexgard Spectra is a new way of treating flea and tick infestations in dogs. The oral chew prevents heartworm disease when given monthly on regular basis. Its active ingredients kill fleas before lay eggs. The ingredient - Afoxolaner directly attacks nerve cells, resulting in paralysis and eventually kills them. The active ingredient kills various mites and controls demodectic mange (caused by
Demodex spp.), sarcoptic mange (caused by Sarcoptes scabiei), and otodectic mange
(caused by Otodectes cynotis). The rapid action of Afoxolaner kills fleas preventing maturation of immature stages of tapeworms and thus controls flea tapeworm infestations. The other ingredient kills parasites like nematodes that live inside the body of animals.
Used according to the dog’s weight, the tasty chew is highly palatable and easy to dose. It is safe to use in puppies from 8 weeks of age and above 2 kg.
