Ultimate Guide to Nexgard Chewables

Meet the First Non-Topical Flea and Tick Killer: Nexgard Chewables!

Nexgard Chewables is the #1 veterinarian-approved flea and tick control medication for your dogs. Nexgard Chewables is a revolutionary monthly soft chew because it is the first oral flea and tick preventative of its kind. Nexgard Chewables ensure that your pup is in the best lovable condition that he or she can be.

How does Nexgard Chewables work?

Nexgard Chewables is a monthly flea treatment with one active ingredient Afoxolaner (the generic name for the brand name Nexgard). Afoxolaner is known to effectively prevent and control adult flea infestations before they lay eggs. It also kills ticks too!

Once the dog ingests Nexgard Chewables, the chew's ingredient actively distributes throughout the body so that when the blood-sucking parasites bite your dog, their exposure to afoxolaner kills them.

A big plus is that Nexgard Chewables (and all Nexgard products) will kill infected black-legged ticks before they can transmit Lyme Disease.

How is Nexgard Chewables administered?

Nexgard for dogs is administered orally once a month and protects your dog for the next 30 days. These are beef-flavored chewable that can be digested with or without food or water. However, if the dog vomits within the next two hours, give another full dose and try to give with food.

Nexgard Chewables Dosage Chart

Based on the weight of the dog, each dog receives a milligram amount of afoxolaner:

Weight Box Color Dosage of Afoxolaner per chew (mg)
4.0 - 10.0 lbs Orange 11.3 mg
10.1 - 24.0 lbs. Blue 28.3 mg
24.1 - 60.0 lbs Purple 68 mg

Frequently Asked Questions
  1. Is Nexgard have a chewable texture?

    Nexgard for Dogs are beef-flavored soft chews, the first of its kind to be an oral flea and tick preventative.

  2. What do the Nexgard reviews say?

    Nexgard Chewables reviews demonstrate 4.5+ stars out of 5 and 94% of reviewers recommend this product. Most reviewers say that Nexgard Chewables are convenient because they aren't a messy or potentially toxic topical solution and that their flea-free effectiveness is quick.

  3. I still see fleas in my house, and my dog is still itching. What is wrong with Nexgard?

    Nexgard Chewables work on killing fleas and ticks on your dog, and cannot kill home infestations. Fleas from your home can still jump onto your pup. For 30 days, the drug Alfoxolaner distributes through your pup's system and requires the insect to bite your dog to expose them to the deadly drug. That's probably why you see your dog itch.

  4. Is Nexgard Chewables for puppies?

    Nexgard Chewables pills can be administered to puppies that are at least 8 weeks old and weigh 4 pounds.

  5. How long does it take for Nexgard Chewables to work?

    The majority of fleas will be killed within hours of biting an afoxolaner-treated dog. This medication begins to kill fleas after 4 hours, and it takes at least 12 hours to start to kill ticks. Be aware that the medicine cannot prevent home infestation, but the more fleas on the dog, the fewer fleas and hatching of new fleas.

  6. Is Nexgard Chewables for cats?

    Nexgard Chewables was only made to be administered to dogs, and therefore this medicine is not for cats. Look for a number of cat equivalents such as Capstar Flea Killer for Cats (oral) and Revolution Plus for Cats (topical).
