Hi, I've given Nexgard Spectrum to my 2 rotties about a week ago & they have not stopped scratching behind the ears. They didn't have fleas before giving them the tables (they never have) and I'm a bit concerned as the itching is really bothering both of them. Is this a side effect of using Nexgard & will it go away? Thanks Bec

FERNY HILLS Q 4055
My dog recently gain weight and is 29kg, can I still give the green till run out.
I wouldn’t give him this medicine at all!!! My dog became extremely ill on this poison. The first couple times was severe vomiting and diarrhea and the third time was pacing, agitation, itching, muscle trembling etc. Once i put two and two together that he was getting sick after he ate a Nexgard i threw that crap away and rushed him to the vets once again. My Lhasa was one of the lucky
dogs that didn’t die from this but he certainly came close. I contacted the manufacturer to file a complaint so the FDA would have yet another case of a dogs deathly adverse reaction. Please use a natural repellent. If you wouldn’t eat this medicine don’t feed it to your dog.

Eating disorders (anorexia) (~1.2%)
In September 2018 the FDA of the USA has alerted pet owners and veterinarians about potential neurological adverse events following the use of products containing isoxazolines. Some treated animals have experienced adverse events such as muscle tremors, ataxia (lack of voluntary coordination of muscle movements), and seizures. This regards all products containing isoxazolines. Most treated animals will not show such adverse drug reactions, but some may be affected.
Antidote and Treatment of Afoxolaner Intoxication
There is no antidote for afoxolaner poisoning.
Treatment consists in preventing further exposure together with supportive and symptomatic measures.
After accidental ingestion stomach lavage as well as administration of active charcoal administration and laxatives may be advisable.
My dog got ahold of the nexgard chewalbes packages.....and ate at least 3 of
them.......Is this dangerous for her
Yes extremely dangerous. Nexgard is a neurotoxin, meaning its is poison and the worst part is there is no way to remove the poison. If you can induce vomiting with peroxide quickly it would be the best thing you can do for your dog. Otherwise the side effects from brain poisoning your dog will suffer could potentially harm and or eventually kill your dog. Please research Nexgard and side effects. My dog has been having cluster seizures from a single dose.
Today our smaller dog bout 5 maybe 6 kg dog grabbed the bigger dog's chewable (next guard) that's the 25-50kg . Is there any advice? Has this happened to anyone else before? Its been 4 hours and he still seem himself. What's should I prepare for??
Get milk thistle for his liver and read up on detoxing youre dog. You cannot remove the poison but you can support his body as he struggles to to deal with the poison. There are a whole hose of things to watch for including neurological disorders like seizures. I suggest you read up on Nexgard side effects and seizures.
I have two dogs one in 2.3.5 kg range and one 3.6 to 7.5 kg range. This morning the smaller dog accidentally managed to eat both chews. Is she at risk? Do I have to get her to a vet?
Omg watch her for any adverse reaction. Look up side effects on google. There is nothing your vet can do other than treat the side effects. If you can get Milk Thistle give a few drops in her water bowl it will help support her liver. You can also give some activated charcoal for any stomach upsets. I really hope your dog is ok!! Mine has been having seizures after his very first single dose! Dont give them this poison!!!
