What is NexGard Spectra?
NexGard Spectra provides the most complete protection against fleas, ticks, heartworm and intestinal worms, treats and controls roundworm, hookworm and whipworm in dogs. In one monthly, beef-flavoured chew. It will protect your dog from fleas and the most problematic tick species infesting dogs for a full month.
NexGard Spectra kills fleas by over-stimulating their nervous system resulting in hyperexcitation and death. Following administration, fleas are killed within 6–8 hours. The rapid onset of action kills newly acquired fleas before they can lay eggs. Monthly use is recommended to combat reinfestation and prevent further contamination of the environment with eggs.
What is Afoxolaner?
Afoxolaner is an insecticide and acaricide of the isoxazoline family. Afoxolaner selectively binds to insect and acarine GABA-gated and glutamate-gated chloride channels, blocking pre- and post-synaptic transfer of chloride ions across cell membranes. Prolonged afoxolaner-induced hyperexcitation results in uncontrolled activity of the central nervous system and death of insects and acarines.
Isoxazolines, among the chloride channel modulators, bind to a distinct and unique target site within the channel.
What is Milbemycin oxime ?
Milbemycin oxime is an antiparasitic endectocide belonging to the group of macrocyclic lactones. It is a fermentation product of Streptomyces milbemycinicus and comprises a mixture of two homologues, A3 (20%) and A4 (80%).
Milbemycin oxime activates GABA-gated and glutamate-gated chloride channels in invertebrate neurons and pharyngeal muscle cells. Increased permeability of the cell membrane to chloride ions causes hyperpolarisation of the neuromuscular membrane resulting in paralysis and death of the parasite.
