NexGard Chewable Tablets for Dogs is designed to prevent flea infestations by killing adult fleas even before they lay eggs.
It can also control and treat tick infestations. NexGard contains afoxolaner which is absorbed into the bloodstream after ingestion. When fleas and ticks ingest blood containing afoxolaner, it causes hyperexcitation and death in these parasites. The tablet comes in a soft, beef-flavored chew that makes it more enticing to consume. Each tablet kills fleas and ticks, and offers protection for a month. It can be used on puppies from 8 weeks old, weighing at least 4 pounds (1.8kg).
