• Can I give my dog Nexguard rather than the topical flea & tick medicine that I currently use (K9 Advantage II)?

    Hi Nydia,
    I recommend that you call and talk to your local veterinarian about this question. Nexgard can be a good choice for flea and tick control for many dogs. The prevention that is best for your individual pet will depend on a few different factors including your dog’s age, weight, breed, and overall health as well as the environment that he will be exposed to. Your vet knows your pet’s medical history and the risk in your local area and they will be able to give you the best advice on this.
