Re: Nexgard Thoughts

Thank you for your feedback on Nexgard. I am so glad it is doing so well that all the Elanco and Merck trolls now have nothing more to do than make up lies about Nexgard. I know our clinic is doing well with the product and have not had any issues. Although no product is 100 percent perfect this one is hands down the best on the market. So a message all the trolls who post on Merial's site go to your own site and lie about your own products. After all isn't that what you do best at Smerck and Elameco.

Re: Nexgard, Frontline, Sentinel, Triheart, Iverhart you all suck Thoughts

While it has been entertaining visiting your pitiful excuse of creativity, I must say that I'm absolutely exhausted after trying to sell 4 different types of your products today because my practice does not know WTF to sell. Virbac's acquiring sentinel, Bayer with Merck nexgard crap, Trifexis Costco whines. You are all idiots. How interesting I make this post in Merial the very source the veterinarians demise. That is complete consequence as you are all the effing same as you have been since before the diversion of frontline and heartgard. And while I am no longer 14 watching you people come in to the practice with all of your random S&IT telling us to sell it, I am actually liking your reps for who they are because they actually bring their pets in to the practice until 6 months later some other idiot tries to take over and do things the same way.
Why don't you take a lesson from ripxx a couple boards above as they are the ones keeping your industry down. ripxx dumblink a glorified print to pdf for 300 bucks "free" with cornersucks. While your reps are walking in as friendly as can be, the diagnostics industry, they are stabbing eachother in the back to see whos bullsh*t x-ray they can sucker a reference lab into buying for said VETERINARIAN. While Ripxx is the one they go back to regardless of disservice disagreements traps.
you people are the most lazy mother Fu=chers of all time. No wonder why they're sending you all over the place, vets can sell your products, and they don't give a sh*t about yours because they have to find that one AMAZING rvt to help the minimum wage animal lovers to try to sell them, one lunch & learn doesn't do jack if you can't afford to pay the right people that are leaving the industry as fast as they realize we can pay them because of Ripxx 5000+, Demandsuck 400 monthly, and a sh*ty website for 100 bucks a month.
Like them, you expect a VETERINARIAN to "LEARN TO SELL"
bye bye veterinarians, hello walmart your one stop veterinarian, pharmacy, eminent death of anyone that is anything good as Banfield vets have HUGE obstacles to overcome when they come to my practice even if they make it.
Like I told your effing competition as I don't give a Sh*t who does it anymore. Build them an effing clinic management software through your effing access that you have through your effing sharepoints via nexgard, Frontline whatever and heartgard less.
As I told your competitors, we don't need you, we need ripxx bullcrap. Build a minimal software because veterinarians aren't fudking programmers. GIVE it to them with a service agreement so YOU CAN BE SOLD BY THEM AND TRACKED BY YOU AND NOT DIVERTED.
Veterinarians learn from their mistakes....by the looks of all of your f&ckups...you may never.

Interesting since Sentinel ( not sure whst the II is for) doesn't kill adult fleas. Guess what, NexGard worked!

Re: Nexgard Thoughts

3 large dogs. All ate the pill, no issues, but one side effect. 21 days later still have fleas. This is the first flea problem I've had in years. I almost never have a fleas and never really need to use products. After 3 weeks, I went out and bought Sentinel II and it worked. No fleas after 2 days. The NexGard product seemed to work somewhat but not that immediate kill every flea like I know everyone wants. One dog got dry skin and itchies for a a few days but really no side effects. I was disappointed in the product. Zak in Kent, WA

Re: Nexgard Thoughts

Your dog is on Sentinel. Ingredients: Milbemycin oxime, Luferneron, Praziquantel. That's a good mix of 3 different insecticides/pesticides...You added a forth, newly developed (!) chemical to the mix. You cannot be seriously surprised that your dog got sick!
Your dog is not allergic - your dog was poisoned!
Pesticides/insecticides are poisons! There are no studies on long term effects, btw.
Have you ever wondered whether all these chemicals could interact? There are no studies about that issue either...Do you wonder why? I don't!

Re: Nexgard Thoughts

Hi there, so I've been hunting online and am feeling like the only one having an issue with Nexgard. I work at a veterinary hospital as a technician- I'm up to date on the details of all the latest products: nexgard being the most recent addition to our supplies (among parastar, k9advantix, frontline plus, sentinel, trifexis, scalibor collars etc) other staff members, a few clients have already successfully implemented nexgard for their dogs monthly flea/tick prevention.
This morning, about 10am I gave my 1 yr old, 25lb mix breed his monthly sentinel(has been on for 6mo) and his first nexgard dose (I'd previously had him on k9 advantix). Around 12pm I noticed he seemed just a little itchy, no lesions or redness I could see at that point. As the day has gone on he's gotten progressively itchier. At this point he is panting, totally agitated, and cannot stop scratching all over! Head/ears, armpits, groin, sides etc. his skin twitches all over when I touch him. No hives, but he's now inflamed all over, bright red, and from scratching himself is bruising and starting to break the skin!
I've already given him 2 doses of Benadryl, a cool bath, held ice packs and nothing I relieving the itch. I spoke to my vet earlier when the itching had started to worsen and he said I'd be safe continuing Benadryl every 8hrs.
It's 11pm now and he's finally falling asleep- exhausted from itching I'm sure. I plan on bringing him into the office in the morning for some injections(antihistamine possibly steroid if he's as bad tomorrow).
Im really curious as to why this sort of thing was not encountered or rather documented in their adverse reactions! And I mean, this is no "dry/flaky skin"... Surely he's not the only dog running into an allergy like this.
I realize a dog can end up allergic to absolutely anything at any time, but I felt really confident in what I've been hearing and reading about Nexgard, and my poor lil guy isn't particularly sensitive either. I'd appreciate any input.

Nexgard related deaths due to adverse reactions is possible, ask any veterinarian who sells these toxic oral adulticides. I would call the FDA or the local press, and ask for some assistance since you appear to be having a problem getting results with your pets death. Sorry to hear about it.

Just to let all know, My dog did not have a reaction to Nexgard. It was given to my pet at the same time that a disease was shutting my pet's system down. My vet told me the dog would have died very soon - within 24 hours even if Nexgard had not been given. We did not know that my dog had this disease at all. My vet has clients on this medication and there has been no problems as far as he is concerned. I am glad that I did not cause the death by saying yes to giving the pill.

Get your facts straight. A retailer of a product has wide latitude to use copyrighted material and trademarks owned by the manufacturer of that product to help with selling the product. Why do people like you spout crap when you have no idea what you're talking about?

Re: Nexgard Thoughts

Bravecto is not going to be as difficult to sell against as I initially thought. Merck promotes a safety claim for pregnant and Lactating females yet on the PI 20% of the pups had deformities. The fact that it can't be given until 6 months of age should raise red flags in the vets mind with the conclusion being don't use on any dog that has not reached their adult stage. On large and giant breeds that can be as long as 18 months. Nexgard is doing well for me and it will continue to grow.

If Nexgard did work you did no use it bottom line! Most likely you did not use it at all and are a Merck hoping posting lies will help your cause. It is amazing when you gave the best product on the market how deprite competing reps become. The only thing Rottie that has a bad flea allergy is you and your B.S. post.

No thanks, been on several third class destinations. Mexico, cruises, PR but I'll go with your rep in Maine if he makes it. A sure bet

Re: Nexgard Thoughts

My Rottie has a really bad flea allergy. I have been giving Confortis for a couple years now. My Vet just switched to Nexguard...I tried it. It doesn't work. Yes he ate it..thats a plus. Now I don't know what to do. I don't want to double up with Confortis and Nexguard. Very unimpressed.

Re: Nexgard Thoughts

Thanks TZ for your input. But not going to happen. Call your boys in the OTC channel. Your going to have have to screw the DVM again to get your results. But that's the M O of your group.
By the way for all you Merial folks - If you're not diverting, you're not cheating and there will be no luxury trip for you and your spouse this year.
Moral of the story go find yoursrlf 4 or 5 accts that will divert for you before TZ does.

We all drink the Kool Aid and then march to the Nexgard/Comfortis?Bravecto drummer. We just launched Bravecto. Good product? Yes. Best product in history? According to our reps who drink Kool Aid. Just like you seem to feel about Nexgard.

Bottom line is you choose to become defensive and petty about this nonsense and the poster quoted is right - it is very unprofessional. It also suggests what most reps really value is their commission check rather than serving the veterinarian and pet owner with information they need.
I agree it about evidence based medicine which is based on outcomes and side effect profiles. I will tell you Nexgard has the best combination of positive outcomes and a very low side effect profile. Nexgard will be the number one product by the end of the summer based on the two points referenced above. Bravecto presents some significant concerns for vets that Nexgard does not. You don't need to take my word on it just ask your customers how excited about their results! Efficacy and safety are unsurpassed, add that to the ease of dosing due to the beef chew and not having to take with food and you have a hard to beat package. You heard it hear first that Nexgard will have the highest share of any other flea or flea/tick by the end of summer. Argue with me all you want it will happen regardless.

I didn't choose this position or industry because I like dogs or I worship money. I chose it to develop my professional skills, enjoy my career and earn a good living, while still feeling the products I'm representing bring value to vets and pet owners.
What are you doing on the CP boards? We don't allow rational people here.
