    What is NexGard?
    Protecting your dog from harmful fleas and ticks has never been so easy! NexGard is a brand new, revolutionary flea and tick preventative from the makers of Frontline®, the #1 choice of veterinarians. It's the first flea and tick killer of its kind because it comes in a yummy, beef-flavored soft chew that protects your dog from a flea and tick infestation for a full 30 days. That means, you don't have to worry anymore about messy topicals, or accidentally washing your dogs preventative off while bathing! Also, it can be taken alongside your dog's heartworm medication, without interruption. NexGard keeps your pet protected from adult fleas by killing them before they have a chance to lay eggs, which reduces the possibility of a flea infestation. Plus, it kills 3 types of ticks (the American dog tick, the black-legged (Deer) tick and the Lone Star tick) which decreases the risk of your pet developing a deadly tick-borne disease. NexGard requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

     
    For: Dogs
     
    Benefits:

    • First-ever flea and tick preventative from the makers of Frontline that comes in a tasty beef-flavored chew

    • No more messy topical preventatives, and no more worrying about washing off your dog's flea protection

    • Safe, effective, FDA-approved, and lasts for 30 days

    • Can be taken alongside heartworm medication
     
    How it Works:
    NexGard contains a brand new ingredient not used in any other flea and tick protection. Afoxolaner, the ingredient in NexGard, works by absorbing rapidly and safely into your pet's bloodstream and causes uncontrolled activity the flea's and tick's central nervous system, which causes death. Afoxolaner is slowly excreted through your pet's metabolism, which allows NexGard to continue to provide effective treatment for a full 30 days. This means amazing protection in a tasty morsel! NexGard is a prescription-only medication, so talk to your vet.
     
    Cautions:
    NexGard is for use in dogs only. The most frequently reported adverse reactions include vomiting, dry/flaky skin, diarrhea, lethargy, and lack of appetite. The safe use of NexGard in pregnant, breeding or lactating dogs has not been evaluated. Use with caution in dogs with a history of seizures.

    It works! Nexgard does work and I have used it on my 5 pound and 6 pound poodles. I did read the reviews and both dogs are flea and tick free after 2 1/2 months with just one application. Living in Florida that's amazing! I will only be giving them Nexgard in the spring and summer and only every 3 months. I used comfortis previously but my 6 pound poodle would throw up. Both of my dogs are young --- 4 and 5 years old. I would not recommend using this on an older dog. 08/20/2014
    Deadly smells and diarrhea for days My little king Charles spaniel just took this medication for the first time and had an adverse reaction. He has had silent but deadly gas (it has some hang time to) and 2-3 days of diarrhea. He woke up to 6 times in the night to go out for 2 nights. This medication was the only thing that changed in his diet. He was also extremely lethargic and unhappy compared to his usual self. 08/17/2014
    Side Effects not worth it Wanted to try a oral flea and tick product as tired of the "messy" topical therapies. Unfortunately, my dalmatian developed all of the most common side effects of vomiting, loose stools and puritus. I'm a physician so I know these things can happen and you can't anticipate how a patient is going to respond to a drug. I am quite impressed with 1-800-PetMeds ease of refund on the product, and will try another product they offer knowing i can refund it if it doesn't work or he has another side effect to the drug. 08/17/2014
    Great product that works We have a two Aussies and a Lhasa Apso. All 3 were on Comfortis and HeartGard. Not only was it expensive it was a huge pain trying to get the Comfortis in them. It smells horrible so im sure it tastes horrible which is why they would run hide the minute they sniffed it. We tried crushing it in the food, putting it in treats, etc and would end up having to just shove it down their throats. It did work but we were all worse for wear once a month. We had the same exact issue with Trifexis but it also worked. Our home recently burned down so we had to move all the animals to our other property which is mostly wooded and full of ticks. The vet recommended Nexgard. So while they now take Heartgard and Nexgard the only thing we have found on them is dead ticks which we brush out of their fur every day. They also gobble it up like it's a treat. It is expensive but I am willing to pay for keeping them tick free and the fact that they love it is a bonus. We haven’t experienced any adverse reactions to Comfortis, Trifexis, or Nexgard. 08/04/2014
    Never again! I gave this product to my cairn and my golden mutt. Golden seems fine but has gas. Cairn had horrible reaction. First time I thought it was a coincidence but when it happened again the second month the only thing it could have been was the Nexgard. My girl had EXPLOSIVE LIQUID DIARRHEA! My daughter described it as being like pudding. Across the reviews there definitely seems to be a problem in the small dog arena. I can't really speak to effectiveness because we don't have a huge flea and tick problem. I treat the yard and just use this as a back up. Needless to say I will not use it again . 08/02/2014
