Nexgard Flea Control

Recommended Posts

We have used Nexgard here for a while - no negative effects. I have not found any fleas and one of my greys (black coat) had picked up ticks from time to time and when I found them on him they were already dead. I don't love giving any chemicals, but I feel Nexgard is better than the topicals because there is no drippy mess and I don't worry about anyone touching the greys after the application. The ticks do have to bite to be killed, but they die quickly (never found an engorged one) and with my black grey I felt better knowing if I missed any while checking him, they wouldn't live for long.


I also use Heartgard and space the meds two weeks apart. I don't give Nexgard year round - just spring, summer and fall. So far we have been safe from the nasty buggers in the winter here.
