It is recommended by veterinarians and FDA-approved to help prevent infections that cause Lyme disease in dogs. It may also help kill infected black-legged ticks before Lyme infection can be transmitted. Each fast-acting chew provides safe and effective protection, killing fleas and ticks for a full month. And since NexGard comes in a beef-flavored soft chew, it’s easy to give to your pet as a tasty treat or disguise in your pet’s favorite wet food.
