What is NexGard?

NexGard is indicated for the monthly treatment and prevention of fleas (Ctenocephalides sp.) and for the control of paralysis tick (Ixodes holocyclus), Brown Dog Tick (Rhipicephalus sanguineus) and Bush ticks (Haemaphysalis longicornis) in dogs.

What is the active ingredient in NexGard and how does it work?

NexGard contains afoxolaner. Afoxolaner is a parasite neurotoxin and works by interfering with the transmission of impulses along the parasites' nervous system. This causes paralysis of the parasite and its ultimate death. 

How often is NexGard used?

To be effective against fleas and ticks, NexGard is given orally once a month to dogs.

Because NexGard is an oral medication it is not affected by swimming, bathing or shampooing before or after administration.

Does NexGard need to be given with food?

NexGard is a soft, highly palatable chewable that is readily consumed by dogs. It should be given in a manner that encourages the dog to chew rather than swallow the Nexgard whole.

Can I use NexGard  all year-round?

Fleas and in some areas ticks, are a year-round problem and so NexGard should be administered every 4 weeks throughout the year.
