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.

How it works

NexGard for Dogs contains afoxolaner, which inhibits the central nervous system of fleas and ticks, causing them to die. In controlled studies, NexGard began to kill fleas four hours after initial administration, with 99% effectiveness at 8 hours. In a 90-day study against fleas on Day 30, 60, and 90, NexGard was 98.0%, 99.7%, and 99.9% effective respectively. In areas where fleas are common year-round, monthly treatment with NexGard should continue the entire year without interruption. Effectiveness against ticks was >94% for 30 days.

Tips:
For best results, make sure that your dog eats entire chew.
  • Administer appropriate dosage per month based on your pet's weight.
  • Give 1 tablet by mouth once a month. For pets weighing over 121 pounds, give two chews equaling the appropriate weight of the pet.
  • Talk to your veterinarian for his or her dosage recommendation for your pet.
  • Treatment may begin at any time of the year, and should continue the entire year without interruption.
  • Can be administered with or without food.
  • To reduce the risk of a flea reinfestation, you must treat all pets within your household with NexGard Chewables or an approved flea control product (for cats).
