The newest defence against ticks and fleas is here. From the makers of Frontline Plus: introducing Merial’s NexGard.
NexGard is an over-the-counter, chewable tablet containing Afoxolaner and is only legally available from veterinarians, veterinary practices and vet shops. It will last for one month and is available for dogs of all sizes over the age of eight weeks.

NexGard starts killing existing fleas as soon as 30 minutes after administration and reaches 100% efficiency by eight hours. Most ticks will be killed within 48 hours, thus preventing the transmission of tick fever and tick bite fever. New fleas are killed within 12 hours, preventing them from laying eggs.
