Stick to the correct dosage, it can make your dog sick if you give it a higher dose than it is supposed to have

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 honestly cannot remember if I gave my Pomeranian her Nexguard Spectre tablet. I think I did but the months and routines run into each other. I will definitely record it from now on. We live in a rural area with ticks so I am worried. The vet wasn't much help, 5 days either side of the usual dosage time. I am worried about over dosing?

NexGard Chewables

My dog is only 1.5kg over the dosage and the next one up is for up to 50kg. Thats almost twice the dose. What should i select? 25 to 50kg seemslike a huge difference?

Go with a different product. Please read through the reviews....so many negative experiences, some leading to death.

If you want to continue with NexGard, the lesser dose is the better option. Also consider Melissa's comment. You should confirm with your vet.

In my opinion, it would be better to give it a week late. The product will have your pet covered for the additional time.
If you have any doubts, it is best to talk to your vet.

No, that should be fine. You just make this the new day of the month for when you give your dog the NexGard.

NexGard Chewables

My 4 month old puppy is having balance problems and head tremors after receiving Nexgard. Will he recover? Is there anything I can do as a treatment?

1 answer
Peter
Peter

The best treatment is to stop Nexgard immediately.
Take him to your vet for the best treatment options.
Your puppy should be fine against worms and so forth where his interaction with other animals, that is dogs, cats, birds, etc, that are not a part of your family, is limited.
The worm and flea treatments are a preventative against other animals who can pass them onto your puppy.
Depending on where you live also has a bearing on how likely he may pick up worms or fleas.
Do take him to your vet for the best treatment options.

No more NexGard. Take her to the vet, there may be something they can do to calm down the reaction.
I am not aware of anything you could do at home for her.

NexGard Chewables

I have 2 dogs that take heartgard chewables 10 days apart. Can I give it 10 days early to get both dogs on the same day each month without hurting him?

The way I would do it is to skip a dose for one dog to sync them.

I agree with Peter if you give the Nexgard. My dog got really sick a few hours after I gave Nexgard. She became so sick and passed away the next day. I feel that it affected her neurologically causing her to stagger, and vomit until she passed the next day. One of the questions the Vet asked was if I gave her a dose earlier than a month. I did not. Nexgard isn’t the safest drug, I feel. It also caused my other dog to itch continuously for a month.
