What are NexGard Chewables?

Protecting your dog from harmful fleas and ticks has never been so easy! NexGard Chewables are a brand new, revolutionary flea and tick preventative from the makers of Frontline®, the #1 choice of veterinarians. It is 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 Chewables keep 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, they kill 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 Chewables require 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 do NexGard Chewables work?

Afoxolaner, the ingredient in NexGard Chewables, 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 Chewables to continue to provide effective treatment for a full 30 days. This means amazing protection in a tasty morsel! NexGard Chewables is a prescription-only medication, so talk to your vet.

Customer Reviews
NexGard Chewables is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 434.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a product that my dog can use I recently started my dog on Nexgard after many failed products. My dog would have seizures in response to the chemicals. We tried every natural remedy possible but could never get rid of the fleas. Our vet suggested Nexgard and it was a miracle. No seizures and after many years - No Fleas! I am so happy with this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOOKING FOR SERIOUS TICK PREVENTION? THIS IS IT. I had used Trifexis and Revolution for many years, before we moved with our three big dogs to the deep woods. There's LOTS of wildlife here; deer, bears, squirrels, etc., yet we only found two ticks in our house during 2017. This was an all-time record, thanks to this new Nexguard product we switched to when we moved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picky eater I had to switch back to using nexgard and heartgard after our dog refused and almost bit me giving him another all in one type that literally stinks. So glad these two are still a very good alternative. Just break into a few pieces mixed into his kibble and he eats right up. Love the price and quick delivery. So easy to get online. Nice surprise to end dog buiscuit in box too which he loved. Looking forward to being a lifelong customer.
