Product Detail: NexGard


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), 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. To have 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.

Great Product for new rescue -

I adopted a rescue from Texas back in September 2020. She came to us with very few medical records. After a visit to our vet, she suggested NexGard for Samantha. It was an excellent suggestion. Sam goes to Doggy Day Care 2-3, and the Dog Park 2-4 times a week to play, and has never come home with a flea on her. I sure we will have a wonderful Spring and Summer, flea and Tick free.BTW, Pet Shed has excellent prices! No prescription necessary, quick delivery to the States and it's the same product as the vet sells.

MY dog chewed himself raw & bloody for 11 years. Flea meds, steroids, different shampoos, antihistamines, many vet visits & nothing worked. He has never "had fleas" but apparently, was allergic to the one flea in my yard. Romeo has lived comfortably for 2 years now that I have him on Nexguard. A great product!!

Greatest Flea and Tick ever made!!!!!!!

It does takes a little time for it to go into the blood stream, But once it does, everything works so well, I have never seen our dogs scratch or chew on their skin since. I highly recommend Nexgard!!!! You will not waste your money on this product. The medicine is by far the best one out there for flea and tick. Our dogs love the taste of it to I just wish the price was a little lower.

I have a kennel with 14 dogs and this is the only time we have ever been completely flea free. We are in the country and have problems with tick, no more, Nexgard took care of them. What amazes me is the fact that it also kills mange mites. We had a dog infected with the red mange and the vet prescribed one tablet followed up in 2 weeks with another and then monthly. It took 3 weeks and her hairs was growing back and no relapsing. This mange is passed from mother to babies when infected but, if she happens to accidentally breed, the mites are no longer there to be passed on. I still do not recommend breeding a dog that has had the red mange but it's good to know it's no longer a death sentence for the dog. Super great product.

My dog was diagnosed with red mange and the vet put her on Nexgard. One tablet to start, one more after two weeks, and then monthly. Within 45 days all her hair came back and the skin scrapping s were clear. I use it every month now. I have 15 Dobermans and my kennel is finally clear of fleas.
