NexGard is a new treatment against fleas and ticks in dogs weighing between 10-25kg. It is provided as a beef-flavored, chewable treat to be given once a month. NexGard makes it very easy to provide safe and effective treatment for both of these important parasites and most dogs enjoy the tablets too.
These tablets can also be used to help treat Flea Allergy Dermatitis (FAD). Each circular tablet contains 68.0mg of Afoxolaner which enters the bloodstream. Afoxolaner blocks GABA receptors and paralyzes and kills fleas and ticks.
To become exposed to the fatal effects of Nexgard, parasites do need to take a blood meal from the dog. Afoxolaner usually takes no longer than 8 hours from attachment to affect fleas and ticks will be killed within 48 hours of attachment.
Do not use Nexgard in puppies under 8 weeks of age or in dogs less than 10kg in weight.
Do not give to pregnant or lactating bitches
NexGard is for use in dogs only and available in 3 tablet packs.
Note: NEXGARD CHEWABLE LARGE DOGS 10KG TO 25KG is a prescription-based medication and will be dispatched once a valid prescription is received from your veterinary surgeon.
