NexGard Combo is an anti-parasitic spot on product for cats containing esafoxolaner, eprinomectin and praziquantel. It is licensed to cover the most common ectoparasites including fleas, mites, and ticks as well as internal parasites including roundworms and tapeworms. There are few products on the veterinary market that cover all of the above parasites in one dose so NexGard combo will be a useful addition to the expanding anti-parasitic market.
One treatment provides immediate and persistent flea and tick killing activity for one month so the product will likely be licensed for monthly usage if being used to prevent against ectoparasites. It comes in a spot on formulation which allows for easy application to cats it is administered to.
The product has only just received a positive opinion for initial marketing on the 5th November 2020 so it will be a while before it is released onto the veterinary market. We will provide more information on the product when it becomes available.
