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.

For:

Dogs and Puppies 8 weeks of age and older

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 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.

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.

Customer Reviews
NexGard Chewables is rated 4.3532 out of 5 by 218.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price & customer service We use NexGard chews for our dog & 1800 Pet Meds pricing is much more economical than purchasing at the vets office. Their customer service is top notch as well in case you find yourself needing to call versus strictly using the website. My computer crashed while I was ordering & I called & the woman I was routed to was so nice & helpful. Not a cookie cutter script, but was personable & asked how my dog was doing BY NAME! So sweet :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from these pills work so much better than Frontline. I have been using Nexguard for almost a year. Dog was covered with fleas. Haven't seen a flea since using nexguard and they are so much cheaper at petmeds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much Better Than Topical My dog eats this like it is a treat and it works much better than the topical solution that you would apply to the back of the neck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy to give My Teddy used to hate the liquid that I put on him for flea and tick prevention. As of late he would actually growl when he saw me coming with the little tube. He easily took the nexgard and it works very well. Am very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick, efficient, pet friendly! I bought this product at the recommendation of my vet after realizing FrontLine just wasn't cutting it anymore. Within 24-36 hours, the adult fleas on my dog were completely gone. As an added bonus, my dog didn't hate this product like he did a topical. The beef flavored tablet was effective and easy to use. He is flea free and I credit NexGard and the education I received from my vet. I have a three month supply, but will be ordering this product only, because it works!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saver I had taken my pet Cocker Spaniel to a new groomer where he contracted Cydatiela or a mite on his skin that looks like dandruff. My Vet recommended changing my flea preventative to Next Guard. Within a short amount of time it was gone. Talk about scarey. I was soo glad we didnt hAve to shave Reds hair. He also is an AKC Champion. Today i keep all my dogs on Next Guard. Why would i? Also we start all our puppies on it when they go home with new owners at 10wks. Thank you for that first free sample.

My rescue puppy started out at 6 pounds ( at nearly six months of age). Her mama only weighed 8 pounds, so wrt didn't expect our baby to get much bigger. Now she is eight months old, and already 10 pounds! Will we still be able to use the 4-10 lb pills?

Asked by: Merry
She can use the 4-10lb size as long as she is under 10 pounds. If she is a growing puppy we recommended purchasing individual doses until she has reached adult weight.
