What is NexGard?
NexGard soft chew is FDA-approved and proven safe for use in dogs.
It contains an ingredient, afoxolaner, that helps treat and control fleas and ticks and keeps killing for a full 30 days. So it helps provide protection you can feel good about.
NexGard Flea & Tick Chewables 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 the American dog tick, which decreases the risk of your pet developing a deadly tick-borne disease.
How NexGard Works
The active ingredient in NexGard is the afoxolaner. This chemical compound will poison fleas and ticks. Your pup won’t feel a thing when they chew this snack.
A single tablet of NexGard can give protection for up to 30 days. Your pup can enjoy any outdoor activity without worry. They won’t do excessive scratches, and you won’t find any ticks when you play with them.
NexGard protection against parasites is more than killing adult fleas. It also will effectively clean out the rest of the parasites for the whole month. After 30 days, you can give your pup another NexGard for protection.
Keep in mind that you need to follow the dosage instruction. Your vet will give you specific instructions on how much and when you can give NexGard.
NexGard is safe for puppies aged 8 weeks and older. They offer different variants to fit different weights. Make sure that you get the right variant to ensure the best protection. If your dog weighs more than any of the variants, consult your vet for the best combination.
You can give NexGard any time of the year. It’s FDA-Approved and safe to take with your dog’s vaccines and other regular medications.
NexGard (afoxolaner) is for use in dogs only. The most frequently reported adverse reactions include vomiting, itching, lethargy, diarrhea, 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 or neurologic disorders.
Always consult your vet before giving NexGard to your dogs. And don’t forget to do the same prevention to other pets in the house. The only way you can protect your dogs from the parasite is when you provide a clean environment for them. For more information, click here for full prescribing information.
