Until recently, deciding on parasite control options for your dog wasn’t without its challenges. How to identify the problem, which one of a wide range of solutions would best suit the purpose and get to grips with the problem, the whole subject was a potential minefield. And the final answer might have involved a combination of ‘spot-on’ products, tablets and collars – confusing, to say the least.
Now, however, we are delighted to announce a new and unique ‘all in one’ product called NexGard Spectra that protects against key parasites* and comes in the form of a single tasty tablet. The tablets are like chews, they are easy to give and, unlike when using a spot-on product, your dog can be stroked and cuddled straight after treatment, and swimming or bathing won’t affect it working. It can be given with or without food and dogs love them, now parasite control is as easy as giving a treat to your dog and it’s fast acting too!
At the moment, NexGard Spectra is only available for dogs, but don’t worry, ‘new improved’ cat options are available too, protecting against the major, key parasites*. You’re probably familiar with Stronghold, which protects against the essentials i.e. fleas and roundworm. Now there is Stronghold Plus which also protects against ticks too!
