Protection for Any Season, Anywhere
The risk of Lyme disease is on the rise for dogs in many parts of the US, including in areas where it wasn’t considered common in the past.1 Additionally, the number of counties where black-legged ticks are considered established has more than doubled in the past 20 years.2 Finally, black-legged ticks can be active year-round, even in temperatures just above freezing, making year-round protection essential.3

A Monthly Dose Helps Prevent Lyme Transmission
Ticks are more than an itchy nuisance. An attached black-legged tick can transmit Borrelia burgdorferi, the bacteria that causes Lyme disease. The bacteria travels to different parts of a dog’s body and can cause fever, lameness, joint swelling, lethargy, and, in rare cases, serious kidney damage. NexGard is FDA-approved to prevent Lyme infections. It kills black-legged ticks quickly, before the infection can be transmitted.
Ticks Can Thrive in Residential Areas
Ticks don’t just stick to the woods. Urban wildlife like white-tailed deer, raccoons, and rodents carry ticks into residential areas like yards and gardens. Your dog could need protection no matter where you go.
Dogs Are Vulnerable to Many Tick Species
Ticks aren’t picky. All ticks need to feed on is the blood of other animals as part of their parasitic life cycle. NexGard doesn’t just kill black-legged ticks, but kills several other species of ticks, including the Lone Star tick, brown dog tick, and American dog tick.
But it’s not just ticks. NexGard also protects against fleas.
