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.

I love this product for my large German Shepherd. He is allergic to fleas and has to be fully protected all over. NexGard is a chewable and he loves it! It is also completely effective in protecting him- no more scratching all night! Great product and easy to administer.

This has worked wonders with our dog (Irish Setter, 75 pounds). We live in a heavily wooded area, and he was always covered in ticks. Since using this product, we have seen ZERO ticks on him. Highly recommended!!!

My vet introduced me to NexGard over a year ago. I've been using it on my 3 dogs without any side effects or fleas or ticks! Now thanks to Joe's, I get it at almost half the price!
