NexGard is marketed as a monthly flea and tick prevention that comes in the form of a chewable treat. One would assume that a product put on the market with the intent to protect dogs would never harm them, but NexGard doesn’t quite fit that profile. Ever since it got approved for veterinary use, it has been catching heat from dog owners who have seen horrific adverse effects in their dogs — including death.
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) in dogs are fairly common. But that doesn’t mean they should be ignored. Without targeted care, UTIs can get worse and cause damage to the kidneys, bladder, and urinary system.
Unfortunately, the treatment for UTIs offered at the vet rarely goes far enough to address the root of the problem. This means that the infections will continue to recur and cause inflammation and damage to tissues in the urinary tract.
