Yes we are in uk, our vet prescribed nexgard chewable one chi is ok the other chi has a condition where when asleep cannot hear you shouting in his ear, say emotive words like dinner! Walkies! No response. Touch him and he jumps in surprise as not heard you. During waking hours his hearing is normal. This condition happened after giving one nexgard tab. It happened coupke days after abd has stayed this way since. 6 months.

A friend stayed with us and swore her dog didn't have fleas but recanted after a month or so. Now my 6 lb Chihuahua has fleas. I have never given her the nexgaurd before. She is scratching herself raw! Fleas are all over her now. She would have maybe one a day on her before. I gave her benadryl. She's allergic to fleas so she can't stand it! What can I do?
Please dont give this nexgard antiflea meds to your baby. My adopted dog nearly died from this medication. He is now recovering after our month long agony together. Days after giving him nexgard as per vet's order he had these ff symptoms. Vomiting, loose bowel that is black tarry, severe loss of appetite, became inactive, severe thirst & anemia. Also his blood works for kidneys liver pancreas function tests were all way... way over the normal levels. My dog suffered similar adverse reactions like those other dogs who have been given this medication - nexgard. Never again will i use this product for my babies.
My Pixie is a Bichon / Laso Ahpso mix. I have given her a Nexgard correctly prescribed by my vet. For the last two nights, I have woken up in the middle of the night because Pixie became aggressive and biting (nasty way to be woken up with a dog snarling in your face). I have read that Nexgard has a side effect of aggression and biting. How long before this stuff leaves her system and does anyone else have this problem??
My dog, a Maltese/ Shihtzu mix did not get aggressive but had violent seizures after Nexguard. Stays in the system 30 days but usually the bad side effects occur in the first 24 hours after administration , according to my vet. Sorry to hear about your little pups issues. I would definitely tell your vet.
My dog weight's 14 pound's He ate a NexGard for 120 Pound dog .What do i need to do? No vet's open at 3:30 in the morning.
Why are the pictures of dogs on packages different from the ones at vetshopmax? I use Nexgard Chewables for Dogs 10.1 - 24 lbs (Blue) from vetshopmax which has what looks like some sort of bull dog. Please help before I order because the ones I`ve been getting work so well but I found them at other companies cheaper but different pictures so it has kind of thrown me off.
I accidentally gave my Yorkey 2 nexgard. He weighs 5.5 pounds. Will it hurt him?
My dog is exactly 10 pounds. Which size nexguard should I buy?
None, unless you want to kill him.
Ask your vet to be sure. If you are still not sure start with the lower dose and if that is not effective give the higher dose or give 1.25 tablets of the lower dose. As for the other comments about it killing dogs. Many of the dogs that died were not healthy dogs. Dogs with preexisting health problems should not take nexgard as it is a toxin to kill pests. I have been giving it to my healthy 10lb Yorkie and she has been fine. No side effects. When I started she was 8lb and I gave her the smallest dose. Now that she is 10lb, the effectiveness is not as good. So I am giving her 1.25 tablets and that helps. I hike a lot so i do wash her in flea shampoo to kill all the fleas that she picks up in the woods...
Hi, I gave my jack Russell a tablet yesterday and she's done nothing but itch, is there anything I can give her to stop the itching ?
The same happened to our boy.nothing that i know you can do.. it took around 30 days before he stopped doing this ..mean while he got a really bad rash on his under belly so we put him in a bath and used rolled oats in a stocking to sooth the rash also paw paw cream...may be try the vet ??? Otherwise you have to wait for the chemicals to get out of there system around 35 days we were told...
Sorry to hear this, it seems to be a common complaint, go to Facebook “ does Nexgard kill dogs” lots of info there that may help, I believe some people use Benadryl for the itch and milk thistle to detox your dog from this horrible drug , all the best ..
