Nexgard Spectra Dog Extra Large Dog

 

In just one chew, Nexgard Spectra provides the most comprehensive parasite protection available to dogs. The chew makes parasite protection so easy that there is no need for sprays, spot-ons, tablets, or collars - just one delicious chew.

Nexgard Spectra can be given from just 8 weeks of age onwards, so whether you've adopted a new puppy, rescued a dog or adopted a senior dog, there's a Nexgard Spectra that's right for you.

Nexgard Spectra is suitable for dogs between 2 kg and 60 kg. Remember to pick a pack with the correct weight range for your growing dog, and to give your dog Nexgard Spectra treats every month as your dog grows.

 

Protect from fleas:

  • The flea-killing properties of Nexgard Spectra protect your dog's health and your house from fleas.
  • They're not just a bother. Dogs can get skin problems from them, they can transmit diseases, and they can be irritating
  • Although it is best to prevent fleas from the start, if your dog does acquire them, regular use of Nexgard Spectra will kill them quickly and prevent them from infesting your home.

Protect from ticks: 

  • With one chew, Nexgard Spectra helps protect your dog from deadly Paralysis ticks, Bush ticks and Brown Dog ticks for a full month
  • The Paralysis tick causes the most concern as without protection, dogs can die from the effects of the toxin it injects
  • In large numbers, Brown Dog ticks can also harm dogs with life-threatening anaemia and by transmitting other dangerous parasites such as Babesia

Protect from heartworm disease: 

  • Nexgard Spectra is given monthly to protect your dog from heartworms (Your vet may require a heartworm test before Nexgard Spectra can be given.)
  • All Australian mainland states are infested with mosquitoes that spread the disease
  • When left untreated, this disease can be fatal, so it's important to protect your dog against it.

Protect from intestinal worms: 

  • With Nexgard Spectra, your dog is protected from roundworms, hookworms, and whipworms.
  • Nexgard Spectra provides effective flea control that prevents flea tapeworm (Dipylidium caninum) infestations in dogs. (If you live in a rural area, you may also need to protect against hydatid tapeworms.) Ask your vet about the deworming requirements in your area.
  • Several parasitic worms may not harm your dog, but in large numbers, they can rob him of nutrients and harm his health.
  • Worm prevention can help keep your dog healthy.

Protect from mites: 

  • Infestations of demodectic mange caused by Demodex spp., sarcoptic mange caused by Sarcoptes scabiei and ear mite (Otodectes cynotis) are treated and controlled by Nexgard Spectra.

In one chew, Nexgard Spectra offers complete protection against fleas, ticks, mites, heartworms and intestinal worms.

We know your dogs love Nexgard Spectra - it's a tasty beef-flavored chew! Nexgard Spectra was well received by dogs in a 3-month field study conducted in Australia.

Nexgard Spectra is easy to administer - with or without food, depending on how convenient it is for you.

Unlike some sprays, Nexgard Spectra is not affected by bathing, swimming, or shampooing.

Packages are available for 3- and 6-month protection.

This size treats dogs from 30.1 - 60kg bodyweight

Ingredients

NexGard Spectra contains the following active ingredients: Afoxolaner and Milbemycin Oxime.

Afoxolaner is an ectoparasiticide, meaning it targets external parasites such as fleas, ticks, and mites. It effectively kills fleas before they can lay eggs, helping to reduce contamination of the dog's environment. Afoxolaner is also highly effective against various types of ticks, including paralysis ticks, bush ticks, and brown dog ticks.

Milbemycin Oxime serves as an endo parasiticide, targeting internal parasites such as worms that reside inside dogs. It is effective against different types of worms, including roundworms, hookworms, and whipworms. Milbemycin Oxime helps in preventing and controlling these internal parasites in dogs.

Possible Side Effects

NexGard Spectra, like any medication, may have potential side effects. While not all dogs experience them, some possible adverse reactions to NexGard Spectra may include:

Gastrointestinal Disturbances: Common side effects may involve mild digestive issues such as vomiting, diarrhea, or decreased appetite. These symptoms are usually temporary and resolve on their own.

It's important to note that these side effects are not exhaustive, and there may be other less common reactions. If you notice any unusual or severe symptoms after administering NexGard Spectra to your dog, it is crucial to contact your veterinarian for guidance and assistance.
