Comfortis is the fastest acting flea treatment on the market killing fleas in just 4 hours. It has the added benefit of coming in flavoured, chewable tablets that your dog will love.
WHAT IS COMFORTIS?
Comfortis is a beef flavoured chew that starts killing fleas within 30 minutes, with 100% of fleas dead within 4 hours. You do not need to worry about bathing or swimming with Comfortis, it is not washed off and is effective for the entire month.
Many dogs with flea allergies have a severe sensitivity to flea saliva, so using Comfortis with its rapid speed of kill gives them relief fast. Just one flea bite can cause dermatitis and itching for up to 2 weeks in an allergic pet. Comfortis is formulated from a new, unique ingredient that works fast and effectively and is very safe for you and your dogs.
If your dog is receiving Ivermectin, such as for off-label tick treatment or for treatment of demodex or mange, please consult with your Veterinarian before using Comfortis.
Comfortis is safe to use from 14 weeks of age. Comfortis is safe to use in households with cats.
HOW DOES COMFORTIS WORK?
Comfortis is orally administered and should be given with food. The active component is spinosad, which kills fleas quickly, before they can lay any eggs. It does not leave any residue on your pet and is safe to use around children and cats. You do not need to isolate your pet or avoid patting your pet after application, unlike other top spot medications.
WHEN SHOULD YOU USE COMFORTIS?
Comfortis should be used monthly. It may be necessary to use year-round flea treatments in Australia, unless you live in a particularly cold area. The flea lifecycle means that after feeding a flea can lay 50 eggs per day, so even just a small number of fleas can grow and act as a source of reinfestation for another 9 months.
