How does Nexgard Combo for Cats Work?
Nexgard combo is made with three active ingredients that function in different ways to kill external and internal parasites. Esafoxolaner acts as an ectoparasiticide, having efficacy in killing external parasites that live on feline skin. After application of the treatment, the substance invades the nerve cells of parasites through neurotransmission- (neuron signals); this disrupts the nervous system of fleas and ticks resulting into their termination.
Esafoxolaner acts on flea nerve cells before it lays eggs so household contamination is prevented. Active ingredient Praziquantel and Eprinomectin work against internal worms. Praziquantel attacks on the cell membrane of tapeworms resulting in its termination. Similarly, Eprinomectin will paralyze roundworms by disrupting its nerve and muscle cells and prevents heartworms.
