  • NexGard can be administered with or without food.
  • Care should be taken that the dog consumes the complete dose, and treated animals should be observed for a few minutes to ensure that part of the dose is not lost or refused.
  • If it is suspected that any of the dose has been lost or if vomiting occurs within two hours of administration, redose with another full dose. If a dose is missed, administer NexGard and resume a monthly dosing schedule.
  • Flea Treatment and Prevention:
    • Treatment with NexGard may begin at any time of the year. In areas where fleas are common year-round, monthly treatmen should continue the entire year without interruption.
    • To minimize the likelihood of flea reinfestation, it is important to treat all animals within a household with an approved flea control product.
  • Tick Treatment and Control:
    • Treatment with NexGard may begin at any time of the year.
