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 flea and tick infestations for a full 30 days. That means you no longer have to worry about messy topicals or accidentally washing off your dog's preventive while bathing! It can also be taken alongside your dog's heartworm medication without interruption for your convenience. 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. It also kills the American dog tick, which decreases the risk of your pet developing a deadly tick-borne disease.
How it Works: NexGard contains a brand new ingredient not used in any other flea and tick protection. Afoxolaner, the ingredient in NexGard, is rapidly absorbed into your pet's blood stream where a healthy concentration makes your pet's blood toxic to insects without affecting your pet's health. The Afoxolaner is metabolized gradually to ensure that it remains in your pet's bloodstream in the appropriate concentration for a full 30 days. When a flea or tick attempts to feast on your pet's blood, Afloxolaner acts on their Central Nervous System by impeding an important neurotransmitter, which causes instantaneous death. This means your pet receives amazing protection in one tasty morsel! NexGard is a prescription-only medication, so talk to your veterinarian about using it for your pet.
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. 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.
