    Why Choose NexGard?

    NexGard is a popular flea and tick treatment for dogs that has gained a reputation for its effectiveness in preventing and treating infestations in Australia. Developed by the animal health company, Merial, in 2013, NexGard was the first chewable tablet to contain the active ingredient afoxolaner, a new class of insecticide called isoxazolines. This ingredient works by interfering with the insect's nervous system, leading to paralysis and ultimately death. Unlike traditional flea and tick treatments, which rely on topical solutions, collars or sprays, NexGard's chewable formulation makes it easier to administer and less messy for pet owners.


    NexGard's ability to kill fleas and ticks within hours of administration, along with its long-lasting protection for up to 30 days, has made it a popular choice for pet owners in Australia. Before starting any new medication, it's important to consult with a veterinarian to ensure that it is safe and appropriate for your pet's individual needs.
