Hi everyone, I have tried nexgard spectra on my basenji.

I bought the tablets for very small dogs (weighing 2 to 3.5kg) and gave my 7kg basenji one tablet and monitored her for 12 hours, incase of an adverse reaction. There was no reaction so I gave her another tablet to equate to the full dose for a dog her size.

She has not shown any ill effects at all, no diarrhoea included. It has been 24 hours since the second dose.

I will buy the tablets for her weight range next month and give her a single dose.

I understand that lots of people don’t medicate their dogs - I live in an area where paralysis ticks are comparatively prolific so I have made a judgement that protection is necessary.

Thank you for all the feedback. Unfortunately I live in the tropics and paralysis tick is present year round. I will see if I can find any feedback from others and post the outcome.

Has anyone tried nexgard? I have tried it on other breeds but would like some advice before using it on my basenji.
