What Is NexGard?
NexGard for dogs kills adult fleas before they lay eggs, and kills ticks, too. All in a delicious, soft chew that dogs love. It’s the #1 choice of vets for their dog and yours. It is safe, effective, and FDA approved.
Which Pets Should Use It?
It is approved for dogs age 8 weeks or older and weighing 4 pounds or greater.
What Are The Benefits?
NexGard is an oral chew so there is no external residue. In a study, NexGard killed 100% of fleas within 24 hours. NexGard stimulates the fleas’ nervous system, causing them to rise to the top of your dog’s haircoat as they die. Because it is an oral product, swimming or bathing has no effect on NexGard. Your dog’s coat can get wet immediately after taking product. It kills three types of ticks too including 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. This product can be taken along side a heartworm preventative.
Is There A Generic Available?
No generic is currently available. It contains a brand new ingredient called Afoxolaner.
How Is It given?
Give your dog the entire chewable to eat. Encourage your dog to chew in bites, not swallow whole. Many dogs will eat it right out of your hand!
How Can I Get A Rebate?
Because ShotVet buys all of our medication directly from the manufacturer and we must have a valid client patient relationship with your pet to administer the product, you are eligible for a 100% manufacturer guarantee and all rebates provided by the manufacturer. If you purchase a 6-month supply of NexGard with a 12-month supply of Heartgard Plus, we will send you the $35 Rebate certificate with your product or you can pick one up at a convenient ShotVet location near you!
