Nugard For Small Dogs 4kg-10kg - Aqua

Nugard for Small Dogs is a versatile solution, meticulously designed to both treat and prevent a variety of parasitic infections in Dogs. This veterinary-grade topical treatment not only offers fast-acting relief but also ensures long-lasting protection against a range of common parasites.

Combatting Fleas and Flea-Related Issues

Fleas are the leading cause of skin disease in dogs. these tiny parasites infect the skin and coat, causing problems that range in severity from itchiness, weeping sores and scaly skin to, in some cases, life-threatening allergic reactions.. With Nugard, you can effectively combat fleas and flea larvae, significantly reducing the risk of Flea Allergy Dermatitis. Moreover, this treatment provides rapid relief within minutes of application.

Controlling Internal Parasites

In addition to addressing fleas, Nugard specifically targets internal parasites such as roundworms, hookworms, and whipworms. These parasites pose significant health risks to Dogs. By incorporating Nugard into your cat's routine, you can regularly control and prevent infestations, thereby maintaining the overall health of your feline companion.

  • Roundworms: In Australia, two species of roundworms, Toxascaris leonina and Toxocara canis, pose a threat to both dogs and humans. Preventing these intestinal worms is crucial for safeguarding the health of your pet and your family.
  • Hookworms: Similar to roundworms, hookworms reside in the dog's digestive system and feed on blood after attaching to the intestinal wall. This can cause internal blood loss, which is particularly dangerous for puppies and toy dogs due to their smaller size.
  • Whipworms: Hardy and long-lasting, whipworms can survive in the environment for up to five years. These parasites inhabit the cecum and large intestines of dogs, leading to irritation of the organ lining and various health issues.
Controlling External Parasites

Combat the relentless discomfort caused by sarcoptic mange, ear mites, and lice with Nugard. Protect your pet from the intense itching, discomfort, and potential health risks associated with these common parasitic infestations, ensuring their well-being and peace of mind.

  • Sarcoptic Mange: Caused by the parasitic mite Sarcoptes scabiei, sarcoptic mange is highly infectious to both dogs and humans. These mites burrow beneath the skin's surface, causing intense itching and discomfort.
  • Ear Mites: Despite their microscopic size, ear mites can cause significant irritation in the ear canal as they feed on wax and oils. This irritation often leads to head shaking, scratching, and secondary ear infections.
  • Lice: Dogs can be infested by three species of lice, ranging from bloodsucking to biting. These external parasites irritate the skin, leading to itchiness and, in severe cases, anaemia.

Preventing Heartworm Infections

A potentially fatal disease affecting the heart, lungs, and other organs, heartworm infection is caused by the parasitic worm Dirofilaria immitis and transmitted through mosquito bites. Given the ubiquitous presence of mosquitoes, the risk of heartworm infection is a constant concern. Nugard acts as a preventative measure against heartworms, offering peace of mind by effectively safeguarding Dogs against this dangerous parasite.

Application and Duration of Protection

Nugard for Small Dogs is ingeniously designed for ease of use, featuring a simple monthly spot-on application to the back of the Dog's neck. With each application, comprehensive protection is provided for up to a month, ensuring continuous defence against parasites and uninterrupted peace of mind for pet owners.
