What is NexGard Spectra for Dogs?

NexGard Spectra is an upgraded formula of the original NexGard, which controls tick and flea infestations on dogs. NexGard Spectra contains an additional active ingredient (Milbemycin Oxime) that protects your pet against heartworms and other intestinal parasites.

This means that with the administration of a single monthly chewable you can: kill fleas, kill ticks (including Rocky Mountain wood tick, brown dog tick), prevent the development of heartworm, and control roundworms, hookworms and whipworms.

As with all heartworm medications, this is a preventative measure and it is important that your dog is first tested for existing heartworm.

Benefits

  • Fast acting formula kills fleas in 6-8 hours
  • Comes in a tasty beef-flavored chew for easy administration
  • No more mess from topical preventatives
