What Is Comfortis?
One little flea can’t possibly be a problem, can it? It can. A single female flea can produce up to 50 eggs a day,1 turning “one little flea” into a full-blown infestation before you even know it’s there. Comfortis® (spinosad),now available for dogs and cats, starts killing fleas before they lay eggs and provides a full month of flea protection to help prevent future flea infestations.” And Comfortis is easy to administer! A flavored tablet is administered orally, so no residue, no worries about washing off after swimming, bathing, or grooming.
Which Pets Should Use It?
Comfortis chewable tablets are recommended for monthly use in dogs 3.3 pounds or greater, cats 2 pounds or greater and puppies and kittens 14 weeks and older.
What Are The Benefits?
Comfortis is a fast acting, effective flea control. There is no sticky residue since it is an oral medication so there is no need to isolate your pet. You can let your dog go to the groomer or swim without concern that the product will rub off or become less effective. It is made by the same manufacturer as Trifexis and contains the same active ingredient except there is no heartworm prevention in Comfortis.
Is There A Generic Available?
There is current no generic substitute available.
How Is It given?
Give Comfortis with food for maximum effectiveness. Because it is a flavored tablet, it can be offered just prior to or just after feeding. You can also administer Comfortis as you would other tablet medications.
