Brought to you by the New NexGard Spectra
The sun is shining, the weather is getting warmer and the days are slowly growing longer – and as a fur parent I am totally rejoicing that our morning walks are becoming free from big muddy puddles, and so-snug-can’t-move-in snow coats! But the one thing that is on my mind during this warmer weather is the increased risk of flea infestation and tick bites in the summer months.
You see, tick paralysis is one of the most common preventable causes of death in dogs along the east coast of Australia. So common in fact that more than 10,000 beloved furry family members are infected each year, with 5% of cases fatal. That’s almost 500 dogs a year losing their lives to a preventable tick infestation.
And let’s not even get started on those pesky fleas! You know how painstakingly annoying one teeny tiny mosquito bite at a summer barbecue can be for us humans, well imagine being covered head to toe in fleas with them nibbling constantly!
But before you lock up your doors and skip summer, Nexgard Spectra have you covered. They love our furry friends and they know we love summer; the visits to the park, swims at the beach and bush walking – but Nexgard Spectra also know these are all perfect breeding grounds for fleas and ticks, particularly in summer, the height of parasite breeding season.
That’s why they’ve brought out the new Nexgard Spectra – a monthly beef-flavoured chewable tablet to protect your pets against these pesky parasites! Oh, and the best part, NexGard Spectra also protects your dogs against heartworm and intestinal worms, which means all round protection against the four major parasite groups.
So drop by your major vet store and pick up a pack, or you can enjoy the sunshine with your dog and order your supply online.
Now we can go back to relishing in the warmer weather with the peace of mind knowing we’re offering our dogs the most complete protection against fleas, ticks, intestinal worms and heartworm, which gives us more time to focus on the fun things!
