Fleas pose an ever-present risk for dogs in many parts of the country. While the risk of flea infestations may be higher during warmer months, they can occur at any point throughout the year. NexGard PLUS chews kill adult fleas fast, before they can lay eggs, for a full month. NexGard PLUS chews are also approved to kill four species of ticks – the ticks most commonly found on dogs in the US.2
Heartworm disease is a serious condition that can cause permanent damage even before it can be diagnosed – and just one bite from an infected mosquito could put your pet at risk for this potentially deadly disease. Cases of heartworm disease have been reported in all 50 states – in both indoor and outdoor pets.3 The American Heartworm Society recommends that all pets receive heartworm disease preventives year-round. Ask your veterinarian about preventing heartworm disease in your dogs with monthly NexGard PLUS chews. All dogs should be tested for heartworms prior to starting a heartworm disease preventive.
With NexGard PLUS chews, you’re protecting your dog from fleas and ticks, PLUS heartworm disease, 3 species of hookworms, and 2 species of roundworms – all with the tasty beef-flavored chew that’s designed for monthly dosing that’s a delight for your dogs.
