Hello, can you confirm that these were Nexgard, and not a combination product like Nexgard spectra?

Nexgard afoxolaner chewable

Do you happen to have the package that you can send me a picture of?

For dogs 24.1 to 60 lbs

I suspect this is within the safe dose range, but I just need to see the mg dose of the tablets.

Thank you, ***** ***** run the calculations just to be sure.

The recommended dose range is 2.7-6.9mg/kg, which is 1.22-3.13mg/lb. Based on your 50lb pup ingesting 2x 68mg tablets, this is 2.72mg/lb, which is still within the "therapeutic dose range". This ingestion should not cause any ill effects.

O thank goodness
No hydrogen peroxide then. Thank you so much

There should be no interaction with the CBD either. Your pup should sleep well tonight, having excellent flea and tick prevention on board.

No, absolutely no need for hydrogen peroxide- this can cause much more harm than good, and the Nexgard ingestion is safe.

Lol no fleas will love her this month
Is it OK to give her 1 in 1 month time or spread it out

I guess you could say that the only one that will have trouble with the ingestion are the fleas :).

I would advise still giving her one in a month, as her levels will still decrease to an ineffective level at the end of the 30 days, so just continue your regular dosing schedule. 


It has been my pleasure helping you today. I hope that the answer that I have provided is satisfactory. Please let me know if you need further clarification. Thank you for using Just Answer and trusting me to answer your question.
