There are a lot of choices out there these days when it comes to flea, tick and heartworm preventatives. You have likely seen commercials for a new product call NexGard. It comes from the makers for Frontline and Heartgard. It is a chewable treat that kills adult fleas and controls infestations of fleas and ticks. The best part about the products is that the beef treat is really easy to give and dogs really seems to like it. When given with Heartgard, your pet is fully protected against fleas, ticks and heartworms as well as the most common intestinal parasites.
NexGard is for puppies 8 weeks of age or older and weighing at least 4 pounds. Grafton Animal Hospital has received a limited number of free samples of this product so give us a call if you would like to try a sample. NexGard is an FDA product so your pet must be a patient of Grafton Animal Hospital and must have had a physical exam by one of our Veterinarians within the last year.
Rumor has it that the all in one flea/tick and heartworm preventative from this company is currently being tested. So we hope to see it within the next year or two. For now, you can give your dog the next best protection by using NexGard and Heartgard together. Call any staff member at Grafton Animal Hospital at (757) 898-8433 for more information.
