Finally…One Chew That Does It All!

Finally…One Chew That Does It All!

Parasite protection has never been easier with the new Nexgard Spectra chew. In just one monthly chew, the Nexgard Spectra will protect your dog from fleas, ticks, heartworm and intestinal worms.

The Nexgard Spectra is a tasty beef flavoured chew that can be given easily with or without food and there’s no need to worry about it being affected by swimming, bathing or shampooing – unlike most sprays, spot ons and collars.

The Benefits

Protection From Fleas

Nexgard Spectra kill fleas fast. They’re not just a nuisance but can also cause skin irritation and even transmit disease. Click here for more info.

Protection From Ticks

Nexgard Spectra helps protect your dog against ticks. The ticks that we find in the Kimberleys are the bush ticks and brown dog ticks, but it also protects from the life threatening paralysis tick (found on the east coast). In large numbers, brown dog ticks can cause anaemia and transmit other dangerous parasites such as Babesia. Click here for more info.

Protection from Heartworm

Heartworm can now be prevented through the Nexgard Spectra chew. Heartworm is transmitted by mosquitos throughout mainland Australia and can go unnoticed at first, and if left untreated it can be fatal. (Your vet may suggest a prior heartworm test). Click here for more info.

Protection from Intestinal Worms

Nexgard Spectra now protects your dog from common intestinal whipworm, hookworm and roundworm. Living in the Kimberley, we would also suggest worming against tapeworms every 3 to 6 months which can easily be done with a tablet. Click here for more info.
