Product Detail: NexGard (afoxolaner) Chewables


NexGard (afoxolaner) is FDA-approved for veterinarian use and demonstrated 100% effectiveness against adult fleas 24 hours post-infestation for 35 days. NexGard rapidly kills adult fleas and is indicated for the treatment and prevention of flea (Ctenocephalides spp.) infestations, for the control of newly acquired adult fleas, and for the control of Flea Allergy Dermatitis (FAD). Following administration, fleas are killed within 6-8 hours. Rapid onset of action kills newly acquired fleas before they can lay eggs.


How NexGard works

Effective flea control with NexGard prevents flea tapeworm infestation in dogs. Nexgard treats and controls Paralysis ticks (Ixodes holocyclus), Brown Dog ticks (Rhipicephalus sanguineus), treatment and control of American Dog tick (Dermacentor variabilis), and Bush ticks (Haemaphysalis longicornis) for one month. NexGard provides effective control of pre-existing Paralysis tick infestations within 24 hours. Ixodes holocyclus ticks do not occur in Western Australia. 

NexGard treats and controls demodectic mange caused by Demodex spp., sarcoptic mange caused by Sarcoptes scabiei, and ear mite (Otodectes cynotis) infestations.

How can NexGard be administered to dogs?

NexGard is a soft, highly palatable chewable and is readily consumed by dogs when offered as a treat. Alternatively, NexGard may be added intact to a small amount of dog food. Care should be taken that the dog consumes the complete dose, and treated dogs should be observed for a few minutes to ensure that part of the dose is not lost or rejected. If it is suspected that any of the dose has been lost, treat again with another full dose.

The recommended dosage is 2.5 mg per kg bodyweight:


Dog Weight (kg)    Chewable size (g)    Afoxolaner (mg/chew)    

2-4                                        0.5                              11.3

4.1-10                                   1.25                            28.3

10.1-25                                 3                                 68.0

25.1-50                                 6                                 136.0

For dogs over 50 kg, administer the appropriate combination of chewables.

For optimal performance, treat your dog on or about the same day each month.


Is NexGard safe for dogs?

NexGard was shown to be safe in various breeds of dogs and in puppies 8 weeks and older. NexGard may be administered in conjunction with gastrointestinal worm or heartworm treatments administered according to label directions. Afoxolaner is part of the isoxazoline family of chemicals. Adverse reactions to this family of chemicals are rarely observed but may include vomiting, diarrhoea, lethargy, inappetance, itching, and very rarely, seizures. Most adverse reactions are self-limiting and of short duration. If you have any concerns, please speak to your veterinarian.

NexGard does a good job of keeping fleas off pet.

There is no better flea control.

Due to a very warm winter, fleas did not go dormant one winter. I had the postman out multiple times to spray the yard. I bathed and had the dogs professionally groomed; I still had a major flea infestation outside. Inside was fine, but outside-you couldn't walk outside w/o fleas jumping on your feet and pant legs. My dad told me about Nexgard. I bought it for all 4 of my dogs (different sizes). In a few days, I had the postman back and have not had a flea problem since.

Works Great

I was a little hesitant about buying NexGard without a prescription from my vet but between getting a prescription and the insanely high vet prices, I decided to give Joe's Pet Meds a try and I'm really glad I did! We have 3 dogs and a cat so when there's a flea problem there's a flea problem. Last year I gave them each a Capstar(over the counter flea pills) and gave each of the dogs a NexGard and boom our flea infestation problem was over with. I just ordered some more for this year! Definitely recommend this product and Joe's Pet Meds to anyone!

We live in tick-infested Maine, and this product really works to kill off any tick that dares to bite your dog. We still found a couple of ticks on our Digby, but they were either near death or already dead, which gives us peace of mind since we let our dog sleep in our bed. Digby has tested negative for Lymes disease, which I attribute to the use of this medication. Small and easy to hide in food for picky, medicine-spitting canines. All-around great product at an even better price!

Was very surprised our little fussy dog took this pill/flavor chewable right away. We didn't have to hide the pill inside a piece of ham or liverwurst. We've had zero flea problems on her or in the house. Works great.
