    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
     
    Benefits:

    • First-ever flea and tick preventative from the makers of Frontline that comes in a tasty beef-flavored chew

    • 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 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.
     
    Cautions:
    NexGard is for use in dogs only. The most frequently reported adverse reactions include vomiting, dry/flaky skin, diarrhea, lethargy, and lack of appetite.

    Did not work on puppy Last month I gave this to my 10 week old puppy.(Australian shepherd/Border collie). I just found 2 more small ticks on her this morning. Last week, I found a large one that had already started sucking blood. I am extremely upset with this product. The nasty chemicals in NexGard that I subjected my little puppy to - and it DIDN'T EVEN WORK! Side effects were very stinky gas. 10/21/2014
    HANDS DOWN THE BEST When my Pekingese got fleas, we could not get rid of them no matter what we tried. Topical, sprays, flea baths. etc - none of them worked! My vet recommended NexGuard and I was pleasently surprised when it started working within 3 hours! I have to say, I was a little freaked out when I started to see a bunch of fleas on the top of his hair but I read that this is what the fleas do as they die. SO happy my little guy isn't itching himself raw and waking us up in the middle of the night anymore! A+++++++ product. 10/02/2014
    Works in 4-8 hours This product works! I have 3 pugs covered in fleas after a visit to a pet show. I got this new med and it is great!!! 09/27/2014
    Incredible product! We live in the woods, and the deer and dog ticks are unbelievably bad. Fleas, too. My vet recommended trying NexGard, and I can't believe how well it works! Within a day, the fleas were gone, and the ticks starting to dry up. We used this in June, and only now - the end of September - is the dog starting to get ticks again. It didn't last quite as long on the fleas, but was still a good 60 days worth! Expensive, but a real bargain compared to the efficacy of other products! 09/25/2014
    So Far, So Good I gave my dog, Roxy her 1st dose of Nexgard a week ago .. the only side affect I can see her having from it is, Gas. No signs of diarrhea. I hope not. I can put up with some smelly gas here and there. So far, no fleas .. keeping my fingers crossed this works. So much more handy than the liquid Frontline. I always had to worry with Roxy rolling on her back afterwards or going out in the rain and getting soaked before the Frontline soaked in. 09/12/2014

    Answer: 
    Vets rely on in-house medication and lab test fees, to keep themselves in business. Internet sales of medications for animals are the bane of these animal practitioners, causing them to lose money. Don't expect the majority of vets to approve an internet sale under their prescription authority, unless you understand will likely receive a bill for their "services".

    Answer: 
    Nexgard must be used with caution for dogs with a history of seizures which could be a reason for the medication to be dispensed under the direction of a licensed veterinarian.
