Nexgard should be taken off the market
After using this product off and on for a year My dog developed seizures. My dog had never been sick a day in his life. He had no preexisting medical problems. These meds build up in your dog's system and have horrible side effects. It could take one dose or multiple doses. Your dog is too precious to take a chance with this med.
Wish I had known this before
We have had our dog on nexgard for as long as we could start using it on the weekend our beautiful little boy got a tick we done everything we could to save him but sadly he passed away so what nexgard don't tell you is that towards the end of the month it decreases dramatically and your pet is in danger so now we have a large vet bill and no Douglas (thats was our dogs dog's name)wouldn't recommended it to anyone

Very happy with NexGard Chewables
My 2 year old Dingo cross breed really enjoys her NexGard monthly. She stands on her hind paws in anticipation of that delicious medicated chew. We travel throughout Australia together extensively and have had no problems with Fleas or Ticks the whole time we've used NexGard. I don't understand how other people have had so many problems with this product, as far as I'm concerned it is the best and safest method for controlling fleas and ticks.

Do NOT risk giving this to your dog!
A couple hours after we gave this to our puppy she had a horrible seizure, now I'm reading online that this is a common side effect for other dogs too - but it's not listed as a side effect on the package. Thought it was safe because our vet gave it to us but this stuff is toxic. We'll be lucky if she lives, looks like a lot of other people's dogs have died. I can't believe this is still on the market.
Bad can't live with this its making my dogs sick vomiting with running loopholes sick due to nexGaur
My dogs have not stopped itching shinning if they aren't better by day break I'm headed to the vet where I bought this product they will satisfy my questions or else I will sue someone and that might be the company also beware of this product its nothing but poision and can kill our love ones
My dog because extreamly ill
I gave this what I thought wonderful easy oral non greasy flea and tick medication to my doberman puppy and withing 4hrs he was having diareah. The diareah continued for the well next 2-3 weeks and he stopped eating. I have had to bribe him with all different brands of can foods and human foods just to get him to eat a little something. This drug is awful, I will never risk my dogs life with this stuff again.
Confused as to why it's not working
It saw a good bit of dead fleas the day after I gave it to my GSD however her scratching is just as bad, there are still fleas all over her, and I'm upset! I do have a cat that did not get anything but dollar store squirt on stuff. But still! I've treated the house and yard with multiple products over and over.
My pekingese almost died from this product. Four hours after ingesting she started quivering and panting and couldnt stand up. I got her to emergency vet in nick of time her temp was at 105.
Any higher than that and she would have had organ failure. On oxygen and fluids, steroids etc for 3 days. She is home now but excessively thirsty and weak.
My dog has been shaking and panting for a day now... complete loss of appetite and cries out in pain when touched this nightmare has hopefully got to end soon. I’ve seen minor side effects using this before but nothing like this time. He has no control of his bladder and my perfectly healthy three year old dog is just lathargic pile. I will never use again!
Does a good job.
I've had my 10 year old Papillon on this medicine for a while now and I've had no adverse side effects or reactions. I've had nothing but good luck with it. I believe it does a good job of keeping away fleas and ticks. I'll admit after reading all these negative reviews it does have me concerned and I will be watching her closely. However I feel confident she will be okay and the medicine will continue to work.
Our Corgi has been on Nexguard for a couple of years but every now and then exhibits vomiting, diarrhea and has also suffered from chronic itching and dry skin. I am concerned about the dosage which is a pretty wide range from 24 to 60 lbs. We have not noticed loss of appetite or lethargy. I think this is like many drugs. Can you live with the side effects? No, we will not keep poisoning our dog!
Questions & Answers
Please help. By mistake, I've given my pug nexgard after 15 days of giving it to him. Is that okay? Or did I overdose him? I misread the date I wrote on his diary. I'm so worried. :-(
I have the 10 lb dose. Can I give my 4 month old, 4 lb puppy half?
Hi Sheree, I found your question because I've been searching the same thing. I've read on several pages that the NexGard chews can't be split because the active ingredient is not evenly distributed through it. It's a bummer because it would much cheaper for me to buy the XL dose and split it between my two dogs, than two L doses.
I don't see the problem. Each piece wouldn't be made separately, it would come in a premixed sheet and cut to size per weight of dog. They probably don't want people to know you can so people buy more. Big business nowadays.
Everyone I know who has multiple dogs buys the biggest Nexgard dosage and then divides it among their dogs. My three dogs weigh a total of 38 kg so I buy the 25-50 kg dosage and use fifth-grade math to figure out how to divide it. My dogs are fine. I agree with Ben that it's the company trying to maximize profit by saying you can't do that.
However, after using Nexgard for about two years, I've noticed that two of my dogs are scratching from fleas after 20 days. The third dog I've had for eight months, and he's still fine. So in addition to fleas becoming immune to it, maybe dogs do as well.
