An important tip to know when using any medicated or surgical scrub shampoo is “time.” Micro-organisms are not usually killed on contact for only a few moments. Therefore, allowing 5 - 10 minutes of direct contact with the skin before rinsing the particular shampoo will improve your results dramatically. This is especially true with contaminated skin wounds.
NexGard kills adult fleas before they can lay eggs which prevents flea infestations and lasts for an entire month. NexGard also is indicated for the treatment and control of American Dog tick infestations in dogs and puppies 8 weeks of age and older, weighing over 4 pounds. These soft chewables are beef-flavored.
Directions: Give orally once a month, at the minimum dosage of 1.14 mg/lb.
NEXGARD can be administered with or without food. Care should be taken that the dog consumes the complete dose, and treated animals should be observed for a few minutes to ensure that part of the dose is not lost or refused. If it is suspected that any of the dose has been lost or if vomiting occurs within two hours of administration, redose with another full dose. If a dose is missed, administer NEXGARD and resume a monthly dosing schedule.
Treatment with NEXGARD may begin at any time of the year. In areas where fleas are common year-round, monthly treatment with NEXGARD should continue the entire year without interruption.To minimize the likelihood of flea reinfestation, it is important to treat all animals within a household with an approved flea control product.
