Dogs need parasite protection year-round. NexGard® PLUS chews are designed for monthly dosing that’s a delight for your dog – and never a chore – month after month. Fleas pose an ever-present risk for dogs in many parts of the country. While the risk of flea infestations may be higher during warmer months, they can occur at any point throughout the year. NexGard® PLUS chews kill adult fleas fast, before they can lay eggs, for a full month.
NexGard® PLUS chews are also approved to kill four species of ticks – the ticks most commonly found on dogs in the US.2 Heartworm disease is a serious condition that can cause permanent damage even before it can be diagnosed – and just one bite from an infected mosquito could put your pet at risk for this potentially deadly disease. Cases of heartworm disease have been reported in all 50 states – in both indoor and outdoor pets.3
The American Heartworm Society recommends that all pets receive heartworm disease preventives year-round. Ask your veterinarian about preventing heartworm disease in your dogs with monthly NexGard® PLUS chews. All dogs should be tested for heartworms prior to starting a heartworm disease preventive.1

You are likely seeing NEW fleas on your pet, which are jumping on your dog as it moves through infested areas. These fleas will be killed quickly by NexGard® PLUS chews before they can reproduce. Depending on the severity of an already existing infestation, you may continue to see new fleas jumping on your pet for three months or more (depending on environmental conditions). To prevent new infestations, continue to give NexGard® PLUS chews MONTHLY throughout the year.
Adult fleas – the ones that you see on an infested pet – make up only ~5% of the total flea population. The developing stages (flea eggs, larvae, and pupae) make up the other ~95%. These developing stages can be found anywhere an infested animal spends time. Commonly infested animals, which spread flea eggs throughout their surroundings, include untreated pets, feral cats, opossums, raccoons, coyotes, etc.1
NexGard® PLUS chews are safe for dogs and puppies as young as 8 weeks.

Yes – it’s a common misconception that indoor pets aren’t exposed to parasites.
Fleas are opportunists. Even if your dog only goes outside to do their business, they’re at risk of infestations from fleas and ticks. Fleas can even “hitchhike" into a home on people, and then jump to infest dogs. An infested pet will spread flea eggs throughout the house, which can survive in your carpet or the crannies of your wood floors and then mature to infest other animals in your home.
Heartworms are transmitted by mosquitoes. It only takes one mosquito bite to transmit heartworms to your dog – so dogs can be exposed in a very short amount of time. And unfortunately, mosquitoes commonly make their way indoors in search of hosts. Even indoors, pets aren’t safe from the threat.
NexGard® PLUS chewable tablets are both effective and safe. NexGard® PLUS chews have been evaluated extensively in both laboratory clinical studies, as well as in a field trial in pet dogs.

NexGard® PLUS chews can be administered with or without food. Care should be taken to ensure that the dog consumes the complete dose, and that part of the dose is not lost or refused.

No adverse reactions were associated with the concurrent use of NexGard® PLUS and other medications.
Roundworms are extremely common in young dogs, infecting over 90% of 2. It’s very common for mothers to pass roundworms to their puppies prior to birth or even while the puppies are nursing. Both puppies and adult dogs may also contract roundworms by ingesting roundworm eggs from their environment, while grooming, or by eating infected animals.
Hookworm larvae can be transmitted through the skin or by ingesting larvae in contaminated soil or grass in your dog’s environment. Dogs may also contract hookworms by eating other infected animals—usually rodents. Puppies can also be infected if they ingest hookworm larvae while nursing.
Heartworm disease is an invisible, but potentially fatal threat that occurs in dogs and other animals. Heartworms (Dirofilaria immitis) are parasitic worms that are transmitted to dogs by infected mosquitoes. Microscopic larvae of heartworms develop and grow under the skin, then migrate to the blood vessels of the heart and lungs of the infected animal where they rapidly grow, becoming adults that are 5-12 inches in length.3
Dogs get heartworms by being bitten by an infected mosquito. Larvae are deposited on the skin when the infected mosquito bites, then when the infected mosquito leaves, the heartworm larvae enter through the bite wound. One bite is all it takes.4
Not all dogs develop noticeable symptoms. While blood tests performed by your veterinarian are the best way to confirm a diagnosis of heartworm disease in dogs, here are five warning signs that are reported in dogs with advanced heartworm disease:
There are 3 things you can do to help reduce the risk of heartworm disease.
Yes, it can be treated, but heartworm disease is a serious condition that can cause heart failure, permanent damage to your pet's lungs, and even death. Treating heartworm disease is costly and complicated.3,5

After trying many different products, Nexgard definitely works the best for my dogs. I was excited to see that Nexgard now had a product that covered both flea and tick and heartworm protection. However, my boys don't seem to like the taste of this one. I never had an issue with them taking the original Nexgard. They both spit the plus out immediately. I ended up wrapping it in lunch meat
I'm not very happy with the results of this medication. My dog is still itchy, mostly the 1st week of the dose and the last week. He's tick free tho and does get most of the benefits of the medication. Nothing's perfect
For years, I brought this back for my dog from New Zealand as it wasn’t available in this country. Great product - no aftereffects.
My daughter who is a Veterinarian highly recommended these, as they are multi functional. No need to do a separate heart worm preventative!
Like the fact that it nows replaces two products, Heartgard and Nexgard. Appears to work just as well, but this is the first dosage. A bit more expensive, however.
Chewy called my Vet the same day I placed the order, and shipped the order the same day! I received the order in 1day! (Jaw Drop) And they beat any price out there!!! Soooo happy with Chewy!!
Spent over $100 on order and forgot to apply the JOY2PETS reward for the $30 eGift. Very upset about that.
Just wish it was a soft chew. Going to crush up next time and nake a peanut butter ball
Our dog has had upset stomach from some medications. This seems to work well..
So far so good. Easiest all in one chew to give. Fast shipping.
