How does it work?
Nexgard Spectra combines two active ingredients, including Afoxolaner and Milbemycin Oxime. Afoxolaner is an ingredient that acts as an ectoparasiticide; meaning it kills fleas and ticks including Paralysis ticks, Bush ticks, and Brown Dog ticks that live on the skin or fur of the animals. Afoxolaner kills fleas before they lay eggs and helps to reduce contamination of the dog’s environment. The other ingredient Milbemycin Oxime acts as an endoparasiticide. This means that it kills parasites like worms that live inside of the dogs. It is effective for protection against roundworms, hookworms, and whipworms. The chewable treatment disrupts the signals passed in the nervous system of parasites in a way that causes paralysis and eliminates the parasites. Nexgard Spectra is a monthly treatment that ensures protection against heartworms, fleas, ticks, and intestinal worms.
