Nexguard – The Leading Tick and Flea Prevention

Nexguard – The Leading Tick and Flea Prevention

Are ticks and fleas effecting your furry friend?

Part of living with a dog in the Kimberley is having to deal with ticks and fleas. When your dog gets infested, it can not only be extremely irritating for them but can cause other health issues.

The Brown Dog Tick is the most widespread tick in the tropics and sub-tropics of Australia. Whilst low numbers of brown dog ticks generally cause few health problems in dogs, high numbers of brown dog ticks may cause skin irritation or dermatitis, and can sometimes cause anaemia, or even death.

Fleas reproduce at a fast rate, with the female laying up to 50 eggs per day! 95% of the flea population live in the environment where your dog lives and sleeps, with the remaining 5% actually living on them. It can take anywhere between 2 weeks to a few months for the egg to become an adult flea so it’s important to wash your dog’s bedding regularly.
