This Stuff Is Poison! Will Never Give it Again!
I gave NexGard to my 6 month old Golden Retriever last year. She had two doses along with the HeartGard pill. She had her first seizure a few weeks after the first dose in Aug if 2019.
We were on vacation, during a hurricane if all things, and thought our dog was having a stroke! She couldn’t stand up very well, her back legs didn’t work, and she was Very lethargic after the seizure which lasted about 1/2 hour.
We thought it was the salt in the sand from the beach, as she Never went into the ocean. Then the next month (Sept. 2019)she had a sei...

Nexgard and Bravecto KILL
Vet gave our 13 year old Peekapoo Bravecto, 30 days later he began with seizures, uncontrollable and his last day on this earth he had 7 seizures. Merc denied any liability but they offered to reimburse our $3,500 vet bills if we would sign a release and agree not to publicize the case. We declined. Told them to keep their money.

It may have caused seizure and neurological damage to my dog
I started giving my dog first dose of Nextgard spectrum in January 2020 and two months later another dose in March. By the very beginning of May, my dog had a terrible seizure in the middle of a night which lasted around five minutes, very frightening experience, after that she shows signs of neurological damages, not walking properly, loss of balance, very weak, loss of some sight and hearing. I think this drug is toxin to dogs, really should be banned. DON'T take the risk!!!

This can kill your dog, it killed ours!
We had a healthy active 13 year old dog. He had a complete check up and everything came back great. We gave him one NexGard chewable pill (he usually eats everything but he spit out this pill-should have known then). Within 2 days he was violently vomiting and became lethargic. About a month later, he appeared to be getting better but a few weeks later, he became lethargic again and could barely eat (even cooked ground beef which was his favourite). During his last days, whatever he ate he would regurgitate and then there was blood in his vomit.... We did see 2 different vets and the last one did a ultrasound on his liver and confirmed it was full of cancer. How can a healthy dog have a liver full of cancer within weeks if it wasn’t because of the NexGard. They are, obviously, not going to take responsibility but my wife and I just want you to know Do not give your loving dog this medicine. We decided to ease his suffering and euthanized him on July 23, 2019. If we would have known that NexGard could do this, we would never have given him this pill.

2 out of 3 of my dogs have fleas 10 days later
I gave all 3 of my dogs a treatment on 3/21/20. It is 4/1/20 now and 2 of them have fleas. The treatment didn’t work at all on one of them. Very disappointing.

Puppy is now sick! Don't use this stuff!
Nexguard made my puppy sick! Vet suggested I get the stuff, wish I never did!! when I first got him home he was drooling to the point he was soaking wet! he has been having watery diarrhea for the last 5days since having nexguard.... Now he has started vomiting and doesn't look good at all!! I'm so angry with the vet for suggesting it!

For the money charged for this I expected it to work on fleas. So far 3 days after I gave it to my dogs all 3 dogs still have fleas. I will never use this again and I will tell my vet to quit carrying Nexgard. I will go back to Comfortis because it worked so much better.

Should be banned!
My little T-Cup Chi had no health issues until i gave her NexGard on my vets recommendation. She’s had 3 seizures since i gave her this POISON so please don’t give this product to your pets.

Franny is her name. She had no health issues till Nexgard was given. She was very lethargic at beginning for about six days, appetite was fine , then she started bumping into walls and objects in her path, took her to vet and then animal hospital where they found out she couldn’t see out if her right eye. Took her to an eye center where they ran some tests in both eyes, concluding that she had lost vision on her right eye and had limited vision on left one, the test showed the eyes being fine though. Now she’s very depressed, peeing in the house and walking aimlessly all day. Next stop is the neurologist who agreed this medication is a POISON. We’re hoping for the best outcome but her health is declining rapidly

Dog had terrible anxiety and a seizure after NexGard
My 78 pound mixed breed dog had two doses of NexGard without a problem. The third time he had terrible anxiety for over a week and then had a grand mal seizure. Over time he has recovered. My other two dogs had no reaction. One out of three is not acceptable. Beware of this product. I'm still waiting for these chemicals to completely leave his system before my vet and I are sure he's ok.
8 year old constant flee problem one tablet and no fleas. No side effects this was two weeks ago. No scratching at all since receiving tablet. I will be using this product.

My young Labrador did not want the chew. Had to mix it with treats and force him to eat it. Since then he has lost appetite, and losing hair from constant itching. Have read other reviews and shocked by the potential damage/death caused by Nexguard spectra. Dangerous product.

My 4 month old Doodle has been having seizures which started 48 hrs after giving him the chewy.
October 8th I took my three month old Doodle in for his booster shot. The vet recommended and gave me a chewy to take home and give it to him later. I threw it in a drawer and forgot about it for a couple of weeks, when I remembered I gave it to him. The next day he had a mild seizure. I wasn't sure what had happened but then 5:00 AM that next morning I woke to find him violently shaking, frothing at the mouth and complete loss of bowels and bladder. I knew then what it was.
It was then I started search seizures and found the FDA warning. I w...ent frantically searching through the garbage and my heat sank when I found the package. We have been to the vet and tested for everything and he came back all good. She is reporting this adverse reaction to Nexgard. He had two seizures again last night and I am beside myself with worry. They are killing our pets!!!

My girl is sick!
I gave both of my dogs Nexgard yesterday. Within hours, my little Shih Tzu had horrible diarrhea. She has never had this before and she is 13. This has continued, unabated, for 36 hours. I held food and pushed water. She now has nothing but blood coming out. It is absolutely horrible for her. I will say that her spirits are still high, and she has no neurological issues. The blood is abating as time goes by. I called her vet who advised me to hold food and push water. I think Nexguard did this to her as she has never had anything even close to this before. Be careful everyone. I will not be giving anymore internal flea meds to either of my dogs. Say a prayer for little Mia, please. Thank you.

Did NexGard Spectra kill my dog?
Our dog just died of acute renal (kidney) failure. Despite intensive care at the best specialist vet hospital in Sydney, New South Wales, she could not overcome whatever attacked her system.
It could not be determined if it was an infection, or as the result of the introduction of a toxin, which on its own might have triggered the condition or made her susceptible to infection.
The only change in her feeding or care was the introduction of NexGard Spectra exactly two weeks ago. A few days later she started vomiting. After no change in her co...

Does not work, made my dog sick
We moved into a new house and there were fleas in the carpet. I purchased Nexguard from City Farmers for over $60. The " chewable" tablet crumbled everywhere when I opened it. The next 2 days my dog wouldnt eat or drink or move from his bed. His heart was racing and he was shallow breathing. I do not recommend this product. One week later and my dog still has fleas.
Nexguard works great
I spend a lot of time with my two dogs in an area with bad paralysis ticks so prevention is really important to me. It’s worked great, no fleas and not a single tick on either of my dogs. No reactions at all either one of my dogs loves the taste of the chewable.
I’d highly recommend it, beware listening to the herbalist nutters online, they are very vocal with misinformation. Almost everyone I know on Sydney’s northern beaches has dogs and uses some sort of tick prevention, I’ve never met anyone who has had reactions my vet is a personal frien...
Not effective for fleas
I have never had a flea problem like this with a topical flea control. I’m being bitten and have found a flea on me. My husband is being bitten and last week the woman who helps me clean was bitten. This product doesn’t work!
