NexGard is a beef flavoured chew for use in dogs to kill fleas and ticks. It kills adult fleas before they lay eggs, therefore preventing household contamination. NexGard contains the ingredient afoxolaner, which kills fleas by over-stimulating their nervous system. NexGard is rapidly absorbed for fast acting flea killing and reaches its effective plasma concentration in around 2-4 hours. One chew contains an effective concentration for one month.
Unlike most flea and tick spot on solutions, NexGard is ideal for dogs suffering with skin conditions. The chew also means they can get wet or be bathed after treatment unlike a spot on treatment.
This chew has a braised beef flavour and can be given with or without food. For monthly use in dogs 25 to 50kg and from 8 weeks of age.
