Nexgard Spectra (first all in one?)

7 posts in this topic

Our local vet mentioned this a few weeks ago as a new product that has (finally) come to Australia. 

It does ticks, fleas, heartworm and intestinal worms all in one - which is something I was looking for when I first got my pup :) 

 

Always best to check with your vet if your dog is sensitive to certain ingredients  or you have any concerns etc

 

Has anyone used it before? (its been available overseas for ages)

I looked into it. On closer inspection I noticed it doesn't do tapeworm.

:( Boo ...do you know if there is something which just does tapeworm?

Is it really necessary for dogs to be worm and flea treated every month? it seems a lot of chemical  every 4 weeks or so ..., esp in these times of  most everyone cleaning up dog poo...
I seem to remember worming every 3-4 mths , and flea treatments if/when needed. Obviously in paralysis tick area the procedure will be different   ;)

Probably not super necessary! :)

 

My understanding was that heartworm needs to be done every month (or the yearly injection) and intestinal worms done every 3 months, but typically people find it harder to remember to worm every 3rd month as opposed to monthly on the same date...and lots of products combine the two and then need to be given monthly

 

I take her camping a lot, every weekend or second weekend (including into areas with paralysis ticks and fleas) so I would rather have her covered but if she was just a homely dog that went to the park (in a non tick area) I probably wouldnt get such comprehensive coverage

 

Everywhere we go also has lots of dog poo :( the council even sent out letters to every single house complaining about it last week

Anything that is solely Praziquantel e.g. Virbac or Droncit tapewormers.
