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 Best Flea & Tick Prevention! We went hiking with two other dogs who were not on Nexgard. We found ticks on the two dogs who were not on Nexgard, but none on Waffles (the only one on Nexgard). This stuff is the best and she thinks it's a treat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only flea kill that really works We moved to South Georgia from Ohio and apparently the fleas are worse down here than they are in the north. We had always used Frontline but that did not seem to work anymore. I ended up with a flea infested dog and fleas in my house. I tried everything to get rid of them but they kept coming back. My vet recommended Nexgard so I figured I would give it a try. Apparently it even cleans up the fleas left over in carpet because they jump on the dog and then die. It is the only flea product I have found that keeps the fleas away. Worth paying the extra money. I only wish they made it for cats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from She loves them1 My boxer willingly gobbles these up, instead of me have to coax and trick her with the former product we were using.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Dog Loves This When I had my daughter our vet suggested NexGuard. The reason was because it is just a chewable tablet and I didn't have to put any oil on him. Also, my dog considers it a treat! This makes it easier then putting something on him physically.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love this product I have 3 dogs. I got each of them nexguard last month and it works wonders. The fleas have diminished and we found a dead tick on one of our dogs yesterday. I will recommend excuse to all dog owners I know.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works better than frontline! After using this product for 1 month in tick infested central PA. I found two deer ticks on my dog that were NOT embedded and were dead! Product works great!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WORST I got this for my German shepherd starting when he was 19 pounds. I moved up with the appropriate weight dosage every month and now he is in the 60-121 pounds. Thinking it was working I recommended it to my roommate even though my dog never stopped constantly scratching. I figured it was from the grass or allergies or boredom. Just found a flea in my sink and a dead one in his water bowl. Done with this product. Her dogs have never stopped itching. Switching immediately.

I treated my dogs with nexgard for fleas. It killed the fleas but they continue to get on them when they go outside. Will they die too?

I have a dog that weighs 25.2 lbs., if I order the NexGard for his weight it comes in the 24 to 60 lb. range. Can I give him 1/2 the pill and give the other 1/2 next month? It would seem I am overdosing him with the 24-60 lb. pill.

Asked by: Larry
According to the manufacturer you have to give the full dose in order for your pet to be covered. Since it is a prescription required product you can speak with your vet directly with your concern on the amount being too much.

Can you use this with Trifexis?

Asked by: Bama
I am going to try because I have an Aussie who the vet said is trifexis is safe for heartworm protection. I hope it's ok. I will give only part of the pill 1st. I need the tick protection.
