We had a few concerns about this new product that we discuss with our vet. One of the biggest was price. It was pretty pricey for our two packs and then we had to worry if it didn't work, or worse the dogs had side effects. We also give Heartguard, a heart worm preventive made by the same company as Nexguard, and were scared there would too much insecticide in their systems. Unlike the topical that would get absorbed into the dogs skin, making us think they weren't getting as much into their system.
No oozy messes or freaking out. This stuff is great!
The dogs loved it! They gobbled them right up. No leaving these boxes out and about or we would have sick dogs. The "treats" are a soft chew treats about an inch long rectangular cube and are liver flavor. They are taken once a month and it was such a relief not to deal with frumpy, greasy, smelly dogs each month. I still can't believe just giving this treat takes care of fleas and ticks without the mess.
And the beds and couches just smell like dog!
Now, you ask, how does it work? It seems to be working well No fleas or ticks, except for a dead tick I found on the bed. A good sign it is working. And the dogs and I couldn't be happier!
Would I say it is worth the extra cash? Yes. Definitely. We will be doing it again next year for certain. It used to take two of us to put the topical on the dogs and it was awful. Now, either of us can give them a chew and they are good to go.
What do you use for flea and tick medicine? Are you happy with it?
