Method of working
NexGard contains afoxolaner as the active ingredient. Afoxolaner is an ectoparasiticide, meaning it kills external parasites (fleas, ticks and mites). Afoxolaner kills fleas before they lay eggs and helps to reduce contamination of the dog's environment. Afoxolaner is also a highly effective tick treatment for dogs (paralysis ticks, bush ticks, and brown dog ticks). Moreover, afoxolaner prevents flea tapeworm infestation with its rapid action on their primary intermediate host, the fleas.

HeartGard Plus for dogs is a vet-recommended heartworm preventive treatment that also controls and treats various other worm infections. It is effective against immature stages of heartworm that is transmitted through a mosquito. It also treats and controls three species of hookworms and two species of roundworms. This monthly treatment has antiparasitic and anthelmintic properties that work against mixed parasitic infections. It comes in a real beef flavor which makes it highly palatable in taste for the dogs. This monthly treatment is one of the most recommended heartworm preventative treatments and it is safe and suitable for dogs 6 weeks of age and older as well as breeding and pregnant dogs.
How does it work?
Heartgard Plus contains two active ingredients Ivermectin and Pyrantel. It is an effective heartworm treatment for dogs that prevents heartworm disease by eliminating heartworm larvae and kills parasites by causing spastic muscle paralysis. These active chemicals control the way nerve impulses flow through the neurological system of the worm. This causes the parasite to become paralyzed and eventually die.
It should be noted that Heartgard Plus is only effective as a preventative for heartworm infection. You must first diagnose your dog for heartworm infection before administering any heartworm prevention product. If your dog has already been infected with heartworm, you should consult your veterinarian.

|Blue||Up to 11kg||Small Dogs||68 mcg of Ivermectin and 57 mg of Pyrantel|
