The brick like chews are way too big. My dog is a large hound and has a keen sense of smell , he knows this product is not food. Trying to disguise it by wrapping it in proper food is a waste of time.

Terrible product. My dog , a healthy 15 months old Labrador, had a bad reaction
He had extreme diarrhoea where we passed stool all night. In the morning he looked sick, was whimpering and wasn’t eating anything. This was not the first time it happened but definitely the worst reaction he’s had. We are not using this product anymore as it doesn’t seem like a safe option

When puppies have diarrhoea it might be something other than nexguard.
My 3 month old St Bernard x Wolfhound was covered in fleas when we got her. We first used powder and flea bombs in the house with good result but only eliminated around 80-95% of the fleas. Our veterinarian recommended this product and we have had a great result tackling the fleas. Every other day we check for fleas and she’s finally rid of them.
I must state that even though this is a mild poison, poisoning only occurs when the toxic levels reach a high level in the dog so it is very important to weigh the dog and dose correctly. Dogs and pu...ppies can get an upset stomach depending on the breed and pre existing conditions. So what I did as a PRECAUTION was feed the puppy some chicken and rice for a whole day before administration of the drug. I also gave it to her as a reward instead of just whenever. This was before feeding time and she was expecting a treat after good behaviour. Sit, Shake, Lie down, Roll over. Good girl! Nomnomnom and its gone. Make sure that you know how your dog responds to diet changes and/or treat changes before you do this. Be smart and be safe. Would recommend this over spot treatment.

Poor Results with Nexgard Spectra
Purchased from my Vet, From initial dosing on the 16 May 19 I have have very poor results for wood tick control. I am constantly having to manually check my toy poodle for attached wood ticks. Previous years I have purchased from my vet Heartgard and Nexgard separately with very good results, Could it be this particular lot Number DIN02473364 for 2-3.7 Kg Nexgard Spectra that is not providing acceptable results?

Questions & Answers
Hi all. We gave our 7 y/o male Bassadore Nexgard 1yr ago this month. Within one week we had huge piles of bloody stools with mucus, multiple times a day, loss of appetite, lethargy and vomitting. We gave him this 2 months in a row not realizing this was the issue, finally put two and two together. Ultimately, we stopped giving it him, thank goodness. Downfall, he was 51lbs when we gave it to him, he is now down to 39lbs and keeps losing. His appetite is insatiable. But 2 months ago we switched to canned sensitive stomach food. We alternate between home cooked, all natural and the canned. We have to do this because his stomach is unstable. He will vomit biale if he doesn't have several small meals a day. His stools are finally beautiful, fur-parents, I'm sure you can appreciate that term. 2 months ago the Dr did exploratory surgery. He had about a 3in section that was extremely irritated, to the point it was purple and had no blood flow. Since surgery, he is better. He had 2 enlarged lymph nodes, we had them tested, benign. His blood work is excellent and within normal range. Its almost like he is not absorbing the nutrients from his food. And we will give him canned tuna or chicken breast as a snack. Most days he is energetic, but when he has a bad day, it's a real bad day. Since surgery he hasnt drank much water, but is urinating for long periods of time, multiple times a day. We just started getting him to drink water again by adding sodium-free beef broth, absolute miracle, praise God. I had ordered a year supply for 4 furbabies. Needless to say we only used 2 months and donated the rest. This stuff is so toxic and I feel incredibly guilty and like I am fighting a losing battle. Suggestions as to what to look for or into? Our Dr and staff of 8 are completely stumped. Thank you in advance.
