Nexgard is the new chewable flea and tick preventative from the makers of Frontline.
Suitable for monthly treatment of fleas and ticks on dogs. The palatable, tasty, chewable tablet is available in singles or boxes of 3. Available in 4 sizes to suit the weight of your pet.
Safe to use in puppies from 8 weeks of age and weighing more than 2 kg.
This product contains a new chemical, the active ingredient Afoxolaner, an isoxazoline-based compound with a new and distinct mode of action. Nexgard does not need to be taken with food and can act as a tasty beef treat.
It starts killing adult fleas within 30 minutes, before they are able to lay eggs, and kill ticks within 24 hours, thus before the tick is able to transmit any tick borne diseases to your pets. Nexgard can be used as part of a treatment strategy for the control of Flea Allergy Dermatitis (FAD).
Administer orally at monthly intervals to provide the recommended dosage of 2.5 mg/kg of Afoxolaner per kg of body weight.
This tablet is suitable to treat 1 dog weighing between 10 – 25 kg.
Nexgard is very palatable and readily accepted by dogs, thus the product can be offered to the dog by hand as a treat. Alternatively, chewable tablets can be added to a small amount of dog food, or dosed manually.
Nexgard may cause vomiting and diarrhoea in some dogs.
Safety in pregnant and lactating animals has not been determined.
After treatment with Nexgard, most ticks will generally be killed within 48 hours after infestation. However the attachment of single ticks cannot be excluded and so transmission of infectious disease cannot be completely excluded if conditions are unfavourable.
Care should be taken to ensure that the dog consumes the complete dose.
