Product Detail: Comfortis Flea Control

Comfortis Chewable Tablets For Dogs

Comfortis is a once a month oral medication which rapidly kills fleas on dogs. Studies have shown that Comfortis begins to kill fleas within 30 minutes of dosing and is 100% effective within 4 hours.

Comfortis can be used on wet dogs and bathing, swimming and getting wet does not diminish the product's effectiveness.

Comfortis can be used in dogs over 14 weeks of age.

Owners should seek veterinary advice regarding use in pregnant or lactating animals and for use in dogs with pre-existing epilepsy. Safety has not been established in breeding males.

Comfortis can be safely used with topical tick treatments and collars, gastrointestinal worm treatments and heartworm treatments used in accordance to the manufacturer's dosing recommendations.

How to use the product

Comfortis is given orally once per month and the dose is bodyweight dependant.

Comfortis is presented as a chewable tablet so many animals will eat the tablet off the owner's hand. In those animals which refuse to do this normal oral dosing procedure is recommended with the tablet being placed at the back of the oral cavity, the mouth closed and the throat stroked to encourage swallowing.

Comfortis should be given at the time of feeding (with food) for maximal effectiveness.

It is recommended that all animals in the household be treated with an effective flea treatment for maximal flea control to be achieved.

Sizes

Comfortis is available in 5 different sizes.

Tips and tricks

As dosing is once per month, it is useful to mark the due date on the calendar. Many owners find the 1st of the month a suitable date to choose as it is easy to remember.

Active ingredients

Comfortis contains the active ingredient Spinosad. Spinosad works by causing nerve excitation within the insect's nervous system, leading to muscle contractions, paralysis and death of the target pests.

Contraindications and warnings

There are no known contraindications for Comfortis.

However, veterinary advice should be sought before using in breeding or lactating animals or in animals with pre-existing epilepsy.

Side effects can include, but may not be limited to vomiting, depression/lethargy, anorexia, ataxia, diarrhoea, pruritis (itchy skin), trembling, hypersalivation and seizures. If vomiting occurs within 1 hour of administration, give another full dose.

If a monthly dose is missed, Comfortis should be restarted immediately and the monthly dosing schedule continued from that date.

An exceptional product that really does work on fleas, easy to use as its a just a tablet once a month. My dog takes it no problem if I smother it with a product bought in the deli section at the supermarket.....liverwurst. Price is reasonable as well.....especially from Trixan pet supplies, and is delivered to my door. Couldnt ask for better....thankyou TRixan

Comfortis does work!

The most effective product that I have used for flea control. As it does not allow the flea to bite first before working there is no skin itch/ irritation which my dog does suffer from.

Big tick for Comfortis

I like comfortis for my sharpie X because it is the only product that works for him. It not only keeps away the fleas but it helps reduce his flea eczema. I have recommended it to all my friends that have pets.

easy and it works

I had always used Frontline on my dog and found it worked well. but just in the last 6 months I had noticed the odd flea - which I did not want as she is an inside dog and sleeps in my sons bed. My vet recommended comfortis. I love it. It works and it is so easy. I also love that you don't have the wet patch on the dogs neck to worry about the kids touching. And even better - not a single flea in sight.
