Re: Nexgard Thoughts

My 10 year old havanese took nexgard because the topical ones burn her pink skin. 12 hours later she was vomiting continually. She then had serious projectile bloody, watery diarrhea. That was 4 days ago. After 2 trips to the vet and 2 to emergency vet and several medications she is almost out of danger. Has not been able to eat for 4 days and only in the last 36 hours has been able to drink more than a teaspoon of water. If I hadn't been very proactive she could have died. She is a sensitive dog but has never had a violent reaction or illness like this. It is a relatively new medication and I believe it could be extremely dangerous to some dogs

Re: Nexgard Thoughts

We do all pray for Tulips survival. More than you can know.

I'll venture to say that none of the people who post on these forums actually develop, test or produce the products we sell. Often the only real product knowledge we have is fed to us thru our companies.

If a dog or cat gets given our product during a trial study, then runs out the door and gets run over and killed by a truck, we have to count it as a drug related death. And even if the trials are accurate and no one dies, they're still limited to a few hundred patients at the most. Any product, once sold to millions, is going to have some illness and possible deaths that are suspected. Just like some people go into liver failure after using Tylenol or Advil or nine million other potentially deadly pain relievers out there. Any individual can have a bad reaction to any product at any time Real world experience sometimes differs from the studies. And who is to know what underlying undetected illnesses were pre-existing ?

And if consumers could stop demanding pesticides that work instantly and last forever, the the companies would have little incentive to develop new poisons.

Break out the flea comb, do daily tick inspections, stop buying products that have or should have black box warnings and get back to simpler time with less cancer causing chemicals.

Re: Nexgard Thoughts

I work with an animal rescue in NC. From reading these posts it seems most of you sell flea/tick products. I was looking for reviews of Nexgard. I am sure I will find them, but you folks seem mostly concerned about sales and not the health of the animals.

A beautiful little Yorkie mix that was adopted from me two months ago is currently at the local emergency vet fighting for her life. She had Nexgard yesterday morning. Her symptoms started with severe diarrhea, then vomiting. Her red blood count and liver enzymes were extremely elevated within hours of ingestion. By this morning she is severely lethargic and her heart is slowing down.

How many of the dogs you tested this stuff on died? Why would you even sell a product that doesn't work unless the dog is bitten first? Instead of bragging about your sales and salaries, why not saying a prayer that little Tulip will survive your product?

Re: Nexgard Thoughts

So sad. Both the adverse effects and the fact that people keep forgetting...every product on the market, whether it's Activyl, Advantage, Advantix, Bravecto, Certifect, Frank's Flea Foam, Frontline,Hartz,Nexgard,Revolution, Parastar, Sentinel, Trifexis...they all have risks.

You name it..it contains toxic poisons. Sometimes bad things happen. Most of the time it doesn't,but that's no comfort to those who do have a problem.

Re: Nexgard Thoughts

im not a rep nor vet nor tech just a service dog trainer who has a kennel with several inside and kennel dogs and we just got two boxes of nexguard to try. most dogs ate the chewable only after i broke it in half. but the evening came after giving nexguard the morning of and all dogs give. nexguard were loaded with fleas. first and worst year ever for us. we used frontline for years but its not working this year. and not one flea was found by that same evening. and this has been about a week now and still no fleas on the dogs. dogs not gove. nexguard still have fleas. will be trying to get more nexguard but this cost is much more since we still have to buy the heartgusrd and dewormer prevention meds. so this has jumled our costs double.!

Re: Nexgard Thoughts

From what I've found, it says to use with "Use with caution in dogs with a history of seizures." I don't think I would chance it.

Thanks in advance.
This is from Nexgard website.:
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION:

NexGard is for use in dogs only. The most frequently reported adverse reactions include vomiting, dry/flaky skin, diarrhea, lethargy, and lack of appetite. The safe use of NexGard in pregnant, breeding or lactating dogs has not been evaluated. Use with caution in dogs with a history of seizures.

This site has people discussing if their dog had side effects.

Re: Nexgard Thoughts

See http://vetmedicine.about.com/u/ua/to...-reactions.htm where a user posted this problem:

Nexgard - Negative Reaction

We tried a new flea and tick medication called Nexgard and our dog is having an extremely negative reaction to it. A couple of hours after giving it to her she became agitated and extremely itchy. After giving her 3 Benadryl she settled down, but continues to itch, is pulling clumps of hair out, and her skin is red and extremely irritated. Her skin “quivers” when we touch her. The vet said she hadn't heard of another dog having this kind of reaction, but said it definitely sounds like an allergic reaction. The manufacturer or the medication is @merial_pet. ‪#‎nexgard‬ Please share this information


ALSO Nexgard packaging specifically states: USE WITH CAUTION IN DOGS WITH A HISTORY OF SEIZURES. They only tested it on three dogs with seizure histories and 2 of those dogs had seizures when given this medication. I'm waiting for better evidence that this product is safe.

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.

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.

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.

So my vet gives me nexgaurd...OUCH EXPENSIVE but apparently very effective. So we have been using nexguard for 3 months...no bugs but at the expense of Toby completely losing his appetite. We have had him evaluated and there is nothing else causing this and the symptoms began about a month after beginning Nexguard. Needless to say we are taking him off of nexguard but in the meanwhile I started snooping around blogs to see if anyone else has had this experience as there is so little known about it. Apparently there are lots of doggie mommies that have experienced these side affects and also vomitting up a yellow stomach bile more frequently than just on occasion. It makes me sad that studies are so less important when it comes to medications we give our pets.

My summary, I love my dog, I do NOT trust this product and will never again use it on my dog. I did a lot of research after this issue and found out that often times giving flea and tick every month is completely unnecessary and we are in fact over medicating our dogs. Therefore I'm moving to every other month to every three months and will just bath with a flea and tick hypoallergenic shampoo in between. I hope this helps. My advice...read not what the adds are but what other owners are saying about a product before you try it. I wish I had because poor Toby's stomach is very unhappy and this could have been avoided, my fault.


That's a unique case....by no means a common occurrence. If even a true case.

I have a Rot/Lab and a Husky/Shepard (rescue dogs) Both had flea infestation. Vet put them on Nexgard. Works great. No obvious side effects. Only lasts 15 days.

Re: Nexgard Thoughts

I have a 100lb doberman, Toby, the love of my life. Toby has several different health issues as he's a blue so skin problems, joint degenerative etc. Needless to say we take lots of trips to the vet to make sure Toby is in mint condition and comfortable so he can live a good quality of life That being said we live in South Texas and have BUGS GALOUR! So my vet gives me nexgaurd...OUCH EXPENSIVE but apparently very effective. So we have been using nexguard for 3 months...no bugs but at the expense of Toby completely losing his appetite. We have had him evaluated and there is nothing else causing this and the symptoms began about a month after beginning Nexguard. Needless to say we are taking him off of nexguard but in the meanwhile I started snooping around blogs to see if anyone else has had this experience as there is so little known about it. Apparently there are lots of doggie mommies that have experienced these side affects and also vomitting up a yellow stomach bile more frequently than just on occasion. It makes me sad that studies are so less important when it comes to medications we give our pets.

My summary, I love my dog, I do NOT trust this product and will never again use it on my dog. I did a lot of research after this issue and found out that often times giving flea and tick every month is completely unnecessary and we are in fact over medicating our dogs. Therefore I'm moving to every other month to every three months and will just bath with a flea and tick hypoallergenic shampoo in between. I hope this helps.
