Treatment of flea and tick infestations in dogs when the concurrent prevention of heartworm disease and/or treatment of gastrointestinal nematode infestations is indicated.

Treatment of flea infestations (Ctenocephalides felis and C. canis) in dogs for 5 weeks.

Treatment of tick infestations (Dermacentor reticulatus, Ixodes ricinus, Rhipicephalus sanguineus) in dogs for 4 weeks.

Fleas and ticks must attach to the host and commence feeding in order to be exposed to the active substance.

Treatment of infestations with adult gastrointestinal nematodes of the following species: roundworms (Toxocara canis and Toxascaris leonina), hookworms (Ancylostoma caninum and Ancylostoma braziliense) and whipworm (Trichuris vulpis).

Prevention of heartworm disease (Dirofilaria immitis larvae) with monthly administration.

For dogs above 60 kg appropriate combinations of chewable tablets should be used.

Method of administration: The tablets are chewable and palatable to most dogs. If the dog does not accept the tablets directly they may be administered with food.

Treatment schedule: The treatment schedule should be based on veterinary diagnosis and on the local epidemiological situation. NexGard Spectra can be used as part of the seasonal treatment of fleas and ticks (replacing treatment with a monovalent flea and tick product) in dogs with diagnosed concurrent gastrointestinal nematode infestations. A single treatment is effective for the treatment of gastrointestinal nematodes. After treatment of the nematode infestations, further flea and tick treatment should be continued with a monovalent product.

Heartworm disease: NexGard Spectra kills Dirofilaria immitis larvae up to one month after their transmission by mosquitoes therefore the product should be administered at regular monthly intervals during the time of the year when vectors are present, starting in the month after the first expected exposure to mosquitoes. Treatment should continue until 1 month after the last exposure to mosquitoes. To establish a treatment routine, it is recommended that the same day or date be used each month. When replacing another heartworm preventative product in a heartworm prevention programme, the first treatment with NexGard Spectra should start on the date when the former medication was due to have been administered.

Dogs living in heartworm endemic areas, or those which have travelled to endemic areas, may be infested with adult heartworms. No therapeutic effect against adult Dirofilaria immitis has been established. It is therefore recommended that all dogs 8 months of age or more, living in heartworm endemic areas, should be tested for existing adult heartworm infestation before being treated with the product for heartworm prevention.

Immediate packaging:
The product is individually packaged in plastic blisters. One carton contains one blister of 1, 3 or 6 chewable tablets. Not all pack sizes may be marketed.
