Fleas Are a Pain, Protection Should be Easy

Fleas are parasites. They feed on your dog’s blood in order to reproduce. Once they have attached to a host, adult female fleas begin laying eggs. These eggs will fall off and scatter around the infested dog’s environment. The eggs eventually hatch into wormy larvae, which then grow into more fleas. In additon, a flea infestation can cause your dog itchy, painful skin conditions.

    It Only Takes a Few Fleas to Cause an Infestation

    Flea families grow fast. A single female flea can lay up to 50 eggs per day, and it doesn’t take long for a few fleas to become a full-blown infestation.3 NexGard kills adult fleas before they get the chance to lay eggs, preventing an infestation.

    The Fleas on Your dog are a fraction of the total population

    Adult fleas—the ones that live on an infested dog—make up only about 5% of the total population.3 Flea eggs, larvae, and pupae make up the other 95%, and they live in an infested dog’s environment. NexGard is systemic protection for your dog, protecting them from tip to tail and killing adult fleas before they can lay eggs and cause an infestation. 


    Fleas can be found almost anywhere

    Fleas are resilient. Outdoors, they prefer areas that are moist, shaded, and sheltered, such as shrubs, decks, and fence lines. Indoors, they can be found in carpets, dog beds, furniture, and even the cracks of your wood floors. A monthly dose of NexGard will protect your dog no matter where the two of you go together.
