INDICATIONS

NexGard rapidly kills adult fleas and is indicated for the treatment and prevention of flea (Ctenocephalides spp.) infestations, for the control of newly acquired adult fleas and for the control of flea allergy dermatitis. Following administration, fleas are killed within 6-8 hours. Rapid onset of action kills newly acquired fleas before they can lay eggs. NexGard treats and controls Paralysis ticks (Ixodes holocyclus), Brown Dog ticks (Rhipicephalus sanguineus) and Bush ticks (Haemaphysalis longicornis) for one month. NexGard provides effective control of pre-existing Paralysis tick infestations within 24 hours. Ixodes holocyclus ticks do not occur in Western Australia. In tick season, daily searching for, and removal of, any ticks found is recommended. Monthly administration is recommended. For use in puppies from 8 weeks of age.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Precautions

The safe use of NexGard chewables in breeding males and females has not been evaluated.

Dosage and Administration

The recommended dosage for 2-4 kg dogs is one 0.5 g chewable (11.3 mg afoxolaner/chewable) or 2.5 mg of afoxolaner per kg bodyweight.

Offer the chewable(s) appropriate for your dog’s weight at monthly intervals. Remove only one chewable at a time from the foil-backed blister card. NexGard may be broken into pieces and fed to dogs who normally swallow treats whole. NexGard is a soft, highly palatable chewable and is readily consumed by dogs when offered as a treat. Alternatively, NexGard may be added intact to a small amount of dog food. Care should be taken that the dog consumes the complete dose, and treated dogs should be observed for a few minutes to ensure that part of the dose is not lost or rejected. If it is suspected that any of the dose has been lost, treat again with another full dose. If a dose is missed, administer the NexGard chewable(s) appropriate for your dog’s weight and resume a monthly dosing regimen.

For optimal perfomance, treat your dog on or about the same day each month. Safety to Dogs NexGard was shown to be safe in various breeds of dogs and in puppies 8 weeks and older. NexGard may be administered in conjunction with gastrointestinal worm or heartworm treatments administered according to label directions. Afoxolaner is part of the isoxazoline family of chemicals. Adverse reactions to this family of chemicals are rarely observed but may include vomiting, diarrhoea, lethargy, inappetance, itching and very rarely, seizures. Most adverse reactions are self-limiting and of short duration. If you have any concerns, please speak to your veterinarian.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

As NexGard is an oral treatment, there are no restrictions on swimming, bathing and shampooing before or after administration. Flea Treatment and Prevention NexGard demonstrated rapid control of fleas for a full month. Treatment with NexGard may begin at any time of the year. Dogs become infested with fleas that originate from environmental infestation sites in the home or outdoors. Treatment and prevention of flea infestations is achieved by killing fleas on the dog before they can lay eggs and replenish an environmental infestation. If a severe environmental infestation exists, fleas can continue to emerge into the surroundings for weeks to months, because of the continuing development of flea eggs, larvae and pupae already present at the time of treatment. Under conditions of moderate to heavy challenge it may take more than one monthly treatment to achieve an acceptable level of efficacy against fleas. In areas where fleas are common year-round, monthly treatment with NexGard should continue throughout the year without interruption. To minimise the likelihood of flea reinfestation, it is important to treat all animals within a household with an approved flea control product.

Tick Control

For the most effective control of Paralysis ticks (Ixodes holocyclus) and to minimise the risk of tick paralysis, NexGard should be used in conjunction with daily searching and removal of ticks. Treatment with NexGard alone will not entirely remove the risk of tick paralysis. Speak with your veterinarian for advice on tick searching and removal techniques. NexGard demonstrated >95% efficacy for a full month against Paralysis ticks, Brown Dog ticks and Bush ticks. In Australian studies, Paralysis ticks and Brown Dog ticks were killed (>95% efficacy) by 48 hours. Bush ticks were killed (>95% efficacy) by 72 hours. Treatment with NexGard may begin at any time of the year. Dogs become infested with ticks that originate from sites which are primarily outdoors. In areas where ticks are common year-round, monthly treatment with NexGard should continue throughout the year without interruption.
