Merial (the maker of HeartGard Plus and Frontline) has introduced
a brand-new weapon in the war on fleas: NexGard.
NexGard uses a unique ingredient (afoxolaner), which fleas and ticks have not had a chance to “get used to.” Many researchers and pet owners are beginning to suspect that fleas are becoming resistant to chemicals which have long been on the marketplace.
To combat parasiticide resistance, Merial has developed NexGard.
NexGard is a safe, once-a-month chewable treatment that kills adult fleas and deer ticks, lone star ticks, and American dog ticks for 30 days. It is approved for use in dogs and puppies 8 weeks of age and older, weighing at least 4 lbs. (NexGard is not for use in cats.)
NexGard is the first and only chew that kills both fleas and ticks.
NexGard is beef-flavored, but it won’t trigger your pet’s beef allergies. And unlike Comfortis, it does not need to be given with a meal.
NexGard is a prescription drug, sold by your veterinarian.
We are currently making NexGard available for dogs weighing 60-121 lbs. If you would like to be one of the first to try NexGard for your pet, please Contact our office.
BONUS for HEARTGARD PLUS users: Receive a $25 rebate when you purchase 6 doses of HeartGard + 6 doses of NexGard from us. Rebate forms are available at our office.
