Nexgard for Dogs
Nexgard is an oral beef-flavored chewable that kills adult fleas and ticks on dogs. It starts its action on fleas within 8 hours and kills almost 100% fleas within a day and removes ticks within 48 hours. Since Nexgard kills adult fleas before they lay eggs, the product is highly effective in preventing future infestations. Moreover, this monthly chewable treats 3 species of ticks in dogs – Black-Legged ticks, Brown dog ticks, and American dog ticks. Besides, the product has a month-long efficacy against these parasites and safeguards dogs against life-threatening tick-borne diseases.
Note: Due to Boehringer Ingelheim’s acquisition of Merial Animal Health, the product packs may have varied manufacturer’s name according to the available stock.
