    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

    • 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.

    Amazing job of killing ticks! I took our hairy hairless Chinese Crested for her yearly checkup and the vet recommended Nexgard since the liquids just roll off of her and we need something for both ticks and fleas where we live. I bought some for all 3 of our dogs and gave them their first dose on June 27. A week later one of our neighbors shot off numerous large fireworks for the 4th and our poor Crested was so scared that she squeezed through our fence and ran off!! It was 4 days before she was found and was COVERED in tick bites but they all but 3 had fallen off and the 3 that were still on her were dead!! I'm sold on the effectiveness of Nexgard for ticks and fleas since she didn't have a single flea on her!! 07/24/2014
    It works but just some information I have five dogs. Four of which are large dogs (3 boxers and a mastiff). I gave all of them Nexgard recommended by the vet since it was hard to watch them give them the liquid via neck. They would always try to lick it off each other, and it's hard to keep five dogs apart for so long. Four out of the five did great, no fleas on any of them, no problems at all. My oldest male boxer however, has stopped eating. He has lost a lot of weight and was panting for a while like he was stressed. Nothing has changed for him since the medicine and nothing is wrong via bloodwork and such. It has to be the Nexgard. He will not be taking it again. I'm not saying it is bad at all, it definitely killed all fleas quickly and did the job. We don't have ticks in the area so I can't vouch for that. It was easy and all ate it with no problems at all. I'm just saying that you should watch your babies, some may just not stomach it well and for whatever reason, are not going to be able to take this. 07/21/2014
    Works great! I started giving this to my beagle in April and so far it's worked great! Luckily, she's had none of the adverse affects that I've read in some of the other reviews. I was hesitant as first when my vet recommended this product but since it seemed much easier to give to my dog than the Frontline I'd thought I'd at least give it a try. My dog has had no fleas or ticks so far this summer and it's so easy to give to her; she eats the chewable pill right up just like she does her Heartgard heartworm pill. I'm very happy with this product and will continue to give it to my dog year round; flea & tick preventative has never been easier to administer! Great product but I do think it's a bit costly, if the price could come down some I'd give it 5 stars. 07/12/2014
    Dogs take it happily It has always been a struggle giving my dogs comfortis or any other tablet for fleas. I was never sure if they got the whole thing cause I`d have to crush it and try to hide it in their food. They took this with ease and we have not had any issues with fleas. 07/12/2014
    NexGard is a game changer NexGard is a game changer. Me and my 100 lb lab have been dealing with tick infestations for three years. I remove 5 to 10 ticks every day. This was getting exhausting to do everyday. I went to my Vet to get a PrevTick collar when she told me about this product to use in conjunction with the collar. The tick collar prevents most Ticks from attaching and the NexGard will kill the if they do attach. within 24 hours of the first dose 25 ticks fell off,.unbelievable! Many dogs have stomach issues therefore the customer give a bad review to the product. My lab tolerated this very well as I was aware of those issues. So far this is the best dog product of any type I have ever used. All his scabs have healed, his coat is now shiny and sheds much less. 07/08/2014
