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.

We love camping, fishing, kyacking with our dog, Jake. So it is very important to have a product that kills ticks as well as fleas. Nexgard is the best we have found. If we do find a tick on Jake it is already dead. Wish they made this product for humans too!

Great product!

I have been giving this to my Golden for years. She loves it and takes it like a treat. I love how it tastes good to her and also prevents both fleas and ticks. I would recommend this product to anyone!

Nexguard is so simply to use. No more nasty oily residue on the pets back,and dogs love the flavor. Love keeping my dogs bug free and not having to deal with the side effects. Joe's PetMeds have the best price around and always fast and dependable shipping.

So Easy To Use

This is such a great product and so easy to use. With other products, I've had to try to time baths with applications, which was tricky with a dog who has skin issues and needs daily baths. This product works, is easy to administer, and certainly makes life easier.

This product is so much easier to use than Frontline was. My dogs love the chewable. They think they are treats! So it makes giving them their meds much more pleasant. And the product definitely keeps the fleas and ticks away!

Product is good! I've been using this for my 3 babies for awhile. however, this is my first time ordering from Joespetmeds. my only complaint is that from the time of order to the receipt of order is a long time.. like 3-4 weeks! my dogs ended up being late on their flea/tick control this month because it took so long to get the product.

awesome product

I'm a groomer and have recommended this to all of my clients that have a flea problem. Best feedback I got was a client that told me that within 30 mins of giving this to her dog she actually saw the fleas fall off!! I have 6 dogs and for the first time they all got fleas. I bathed them, treated them, cleaned their bedding but still couldn't get rid of the fleas. I gave them all NexGard and fleas were gone!! Can't say enough good things about this product.

Best flea and tick control

Great not having to apply some chemical to my dog's coat and hope that he can't lick it. Dog eats Nexgard like its a treat.
