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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and effective tick medicine Heard about this from our niece. Our dog had no problems after taking it and it seems to be working great!! So much better than applying the medicine to his skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff We had Hendrix on frontline for a while but the stuff was not working any more so our vet told us about nexguard and he hasn't has problem since we started him on the medication

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life saver I got this from the vet for my 2 dogs only 4 days ago and it is a life saver. None of the topical treatments worked (it felt like they completely stopped working overnight), and now they're itch free and have stopped chewing their tails and legs raw. Also easy that they smell, look, and likely taste like meaty snacks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will continue to purchase Recommended by nail trim tech after my dog had an allergic reaction to a topical treatment preventative. Was able to give me a trial dose to test for reactions, and he was all clear. Also, much easier to give our dog a treat than trying to sit still for the goop. Since our regular vet does not prescribe in house, she told me I could order online and she would gladly sign the order. Had a small mix-up in faxes that didn't get through, but was resolved quickly and customer service was amazing. Will continue to order this product using 1800PetMeds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Peasy 2nd time we've bought these. The first time to see if they worked, the second time to stock up because these are amazing and Minnie LOVES getting the "treat" and eats it all without us having to hide it in something. Within 30 minutes, ticks & fleas are dying or dead!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Nothing else seemed to work. A vet assistant once told me about it and tried it. So far the best tick prevention for my baby

Q&A

Is it recommended to administer this drug with food? I searched but couldn't find this question posted. Perhaps giving it with food will reduce likely-hood of vomiting.

Asked by: KaylaLover
This medication can be taken with food which could decrease the liklihood of vomiting.

Does it kill fleas in every stage of the life cycle or just adult fleas? 

Asked by: Olivia
It doesn't attack all the stages. It attacks the adults to prevent the other stages from appearing.

Hi,  Will Nexgard kill eggs? Also, what about chewing lice?

No NexGard does not kill eggs or chewing lice. It kills adult fleas before they can lay eggs.

Is this like the comfortis? My dog can not take comfortis it makes her sick. 

Asked by: Nik Nik
It's similar in the sense that they both protect against fleas and ticks, and are oral chews. However, they do not have the same ingredients.

Is there a difference between NexGard and FrontLine for dogs, do they work the same?  Is one better than the other?  Any information you can provide would be appreciated.  Thank you.

Asked by: lucy
They have different ingredients but both work to prevent fleas and ticks. Frontline also kills chrewing lice. NexGard is an oral chew and Fronline is a topical ointment. They both work for a month.
