Nexgard Spectra 3.6-7.5kg 6 Pack
Nexgard Spectra is a revolutionary new parasite prevention product which protects your dog from fleas, ticks, mites, intestinal worms, and heartworm for a full month.
Nexgard Spectra combines two active ingredients to provide complete protection against the most common internal and external parasites of dogs in Australia. Like Nexgard, Nexgard Spectra protects against fleas, mites and ticks, but has the added benefit of protecting against roundworms, hookworms, whipworm, heartworm and the flea tapeworm. It comes as a soft, tasty beef-flavoured chew which your dog will love.
Tick paralysis can be fatal, so prevention is essential if you live in a tick area, or are planning to visit one. Paralysis ticks are found in most areas of the east coast of Australia and can be active year round in warmer climates. Dogs usually pick up ticks in their fur when moving through areas of long grass or scrub.
