Does your dog ever play outside or lay around the deck? Does your home have carpet and/or wooden floors? These are all place where fleas may live. If your dog is outdoors quite a bit, fleas can also be found around fence lines. Fleas can also jump off other wildlife and onto your pet. Some areas where ticks can be found are on trails, wooded areas and in tall grass.
These are very common areas for most pets. Having your pet on a preventative is very safe and wise to do because both fleas and ticks can lead to your pet having future health issues.
NexGard™ is for dogs only. We like it because it kills fleas and ticks fast. It can kill fleas before the adult fleas are able to lay eggs. It also kills ticks (deer ticks, lone star ticks and American dog ticks). It’s a monthly chewable that tastes like beef!
NexGard™ is used to kill fleas and ticks on your dog. The adult fleas which you see on your dog are roughly only 5% of the flea infestation in your environment. To prevent an infestation all together, you should give NexGard™ to your dog monthly. You should also get any other pets in your house, such as cats, on a flea and tick control product (because remember, this one is for dogs only.)
Fleas can give any dog discomfort, flea allergies, tapeworms and other diseases. Ticks can be responsible for giving Lyme Disease and other diseases. Call us today to see if NexGard™ is right for your pet.
