You can safely dose your dogs with Nexguard at any time. Pet Armor contains fipronil as its active ingredient and fipronil isn't systemically absorbed. It is absorbed and accumulated in the sebaceous glands from which it is slowly released via follicular ducts. There is no known interaction between fipronil and afoxolaner (Nexgard) nor a mechanism for that to occur.Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
