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.
