I agree that if Nexgard worked well for your dog, why change? All preventatives, like all meds, carry a risk of side effects. They are rare, but unfortunately, it is devastating when it happens, and people start FB groups and stuff that make it sound like all dogs die from Nexgard (or Bravecto or whatever).
If you do want to move to a topical, talk to your vet about which one is effective in your area (some do lose their effectiveness). I use Advantix II, and it is very effective, but ticks only started moving into my region of the world about 5-6 years ago.
