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 dog's 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.

  • 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 fleas' and ticks' central nervous systems, 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product! We knew nothing about animals and rescued our sweet Toto a few years ago. He was infested with fleas and ticks and just in pitiful shape. We received this product from the vet and THAT SAME DAY the fleas were gone! He has been flea and tick free since. (There's another product by same company with tick killer/prevention.) We could not be happier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a hit! I used to use Frontline on my last dog and she hated it. I switched to NexGard with Skye and it is so much easier. No more stressful times trying to apply Frontline to an unwilling dog! The chew is a treat and there's no concern about whether I got the product fully on the dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best stuff ever We are the proud parents of a chocolate lab. She came home to us with fleas which quickly got out of hand. Then to make it worse my son is allergic to flea bites. ( had a biopsy to confirm). We used frontline drops which was garbage ,flea brushed close to 60 fleas off her. Called frontline ( their response was sorry about your luck ) Vet said nexgaurd and if in a week she still has them we can add the ceresto collar also. Well within 12 hrs I only brushed 2 fleas off her and 24 hours she was flea free. Wish they mad it for cats .

Q&A

Does the medicine only kill ticks after they bite the dog?

Asked by: Ashley
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. When the flea or tick bites, it causes uncontrolled activity in the central nervous system resulting in death. Fleas are killed within hours and ticks may take up to 2 days. Ticks are killed before they are attached long enough to transmit disease.
