Watch the Hero Tails “dog-umentary” video series

We are proud to announce the premiere of the Hero Tails “dog-umentary” video series presented by the NexGard® (afoxolaner) team. Each Hero Tails video installment features a remarkable Canine Companions for Independence® graduate pair and highlights how NexGard and Canine Companions for Independence are making lives easier, one dog at a time. We encourage all of our supporters to watch the Hero Tails series narrated by TV host, musician and philanthropist Nick Cannon, and for every video view or in-clinic purchase of NexGard through October 31, 2016, the NexGard team will donate $1, up to a total of $175,000, to Canine Companions for Independence. Your participation will help us continue making lives easier for people with disabilities by providing highly trained assistance dogs.
