  • NexGard Chewable Tablets for Dogs, 60.1-121 lbs

    By on

    Within an hour of administering the tablet fleas were coming to the surface of my pets hair. Reading the FAQ section states that this is normal as the medicine is impacting the fleas nervous system. The fleas were almost dead at that time and were easily picked off and discarded. However, the dogs do still scratch and its been 8-days...but I haven't seen any fleas on the dogs or in the house. Maybe they're just scratching previous bites.

  • Only flea and tick I will use from now on

    By on

    I had tried so many other flea and trick preventions, but I have been using this for 3 months and just re-ordered. I read review after review trying to decide (I really was looking to see if I could find something just as effective but cheaper) and I just had to stick with the NexGard. I live in a very humid and wooded area and frequently take my dog with me on hikes/ in tall grass, etc. He stayed 100% flea and tick free all summer, so now I ordered for fall. This is the only product I recommend to friends and family for their pets because I know it works, just the price is pretty high, unfortunately. :/ I just assume pay the higher price for the prevention than having to buy all the anti-flea I had tried so many other flea and trick preventions, but I have been using this for 3 months and just re-ordered.

  • Disappointed to say the least

    By on

    My vet pushed these on me at about twice the price of what I typically pay for the topical applications. 2 months after staring my dog on this, he had his first outbreak of fleas in his 12 years. Back on the topical stuff for about a month, I think most of the fleas have been dealt with, but the dog continues to scratch/chew up his skin dealing with the remnants of the bites.

  • Not a battle to get him to take it

    By on

    I've tried many types of oral flea and tick meds (comfortis, bravecto, simparica) and they've all been a battle to get him to take them. He either spits them out or refuses to even take them. I usually end up having to cram them down his throat, which is a very wet and slimy activity since he flails like a fish with a hook in his mouth. The vet said there is something about flea and tick medicine - some dogs can smell the medicine over the flavoring. However, he doesn't object to the nexgard and will take it like it's a treat. Such a relief to find one that doesn't have to be administered the hard (and wet) way.

  • NexGard is probably ok

    By on

    First time I have used this. My 7 year old GMD took it with no problems. My older dog, who has never liked to take meds was VERY against this. It took several tries, and some extra hours to get her to take this, and she did not "chew" it. We got it in to her but not easily.

  • Great product

    By on

    Great product for living in the middle of tick country. I like that it is a monthly dosage. We switched from Bravecto to Nexgard because the 3 month Bravecto pill always upset my dogs stomach. Nexgard has been gentle on my dogs stomach and definetly kills any tick that latches onto her, as I have found plenty of dead ticks around the house. Definitely recommend this product.

  • Tail of 2 dogs

    By on

    My dog is a very picky eater so he does not see this as a treat. I have to cut it up and mix it into his food. But this product is better then the others we have tried. My friends dog (a lab) loves it so much we have to hide the package or he will eat them all.

  • Wouldn't use anything else

    By on

    This is the only flea and tick medicine I have used on my 10 month Bluetick and I don't have any complaints (except maybe the price!). I take him hunting quite frequently and haven't found 1 tick actually on him--Only dead ones that have fallen off. I almost switched to Simperica once he reached 6 months but decided against it since ticks are so bad down in NC and I have had such success with NexGard. I also never had side effects even when I first gave it to him as a young puppy. I don't plan on switching to anything cheaper since I've had such great results with this product. Hope that helps!

  • Nextgard is a good one for fleas

    By on

    It really helps but they do have to bite, my dog also has itchy from the bite before they die, so we put an essential oil flea solution on him, both together are fantastic and the price is right plus they call the vet!

  • Disappointing Results

    By on

    Everyone says it's a great product, but we're still seeing fleas, though not as many. It's only been 2 weeks so maybe it will take time. I took her to the Vet, who reiterated what a good product it's supposed to be and recommended the Seresto collar for more protection.
