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.
What is the active ingredient of NexGard?
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 have 2 inside and 2 outside dogs. We live in FL in year round fleas, and have tried EVERYTHING to get rid of our dogs' fleas. I started ordering NexGard from Joe's pet meds a year ago, and have not had any flea problems since. Also, the dogs can go swimming & be washed as much as need without affecting the treatment.
I have used this product for two years and I use it year round just to make sure and I have never had a flea problem. I was told I could use it only 50% of the time but for the price i decided I would play it safe and continue every month. Worth the few extra dollars for piece of mind.
these are very good. easy to give, dogs like them and they work.
I have been ordering products thru Joes for 10 years, always receive great products including this one. I love the edible treatment as I have a large breed dog with long fluffy hair and this products re-assures me the treatment is getting it's full affect.
The only flea and tick medication that actually works! And it works quickly with results lasting an entire month!
started using the product a few months ago at the suggestion of my vet, the dogs love it and its so nice to not have their coats all wet/greasy looking. the prices here are very good and the product works.
NexGard works great I've been using it for awhile it really works ! Also Joes pet is the best price and you get fast service.
