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 pet will love.
Comfortis contains a unique flea-killing ingredient called Spinosad. While many top spot flea control products take up to 48 hours to kill each flea Comfortis starts killing those pesky parasites in just 30 minutes and is 100% effective within 4 hours. Comes in Very Small, Small, Medium, Large and Extra Large sizes to match your pet's needs.
About Comfortis (Spinosad)
Comfortis is an affordable flavoured, chewable table for your dog that kills fleas and protects against flea infestation. It is administered monthly the whole year round for optimal results. Some ‘spot-on’ products take up to 48 hours to kill all the fleas on your dog or cat. Spinosad, the active ingredient in Comfortis, is a natural insecticide that kills insects quickly. As a result, Comfortis starts to act within just 30 minutes and 100% of fleas are killed within 4 hours.
Comfortis is safe for dogs and cats but is not recommended for use in puppies and kittens less than 14 weeks. Comfortis is convenient to administer and you don’t have to worry about it washing off like you would with a ‘spot-on’ treatment. Simply give your dog or cat a tablet just before or just after their regular meal time. The beef flavour disguises it as a treat.
Why We Choose Comfortis
Many of us know the irritation and discomfort associated with fleas, particularly when it seems that your flea product just doesn’t work quickly enough to give your pet relief. At Love That Pet the flea and tick products we select must be highly effective, safe, simple to use and, most of all, fast acting. Here's why we recommend Comfortis for Dogs and Cats.
Fast Acting. Comfortis starts to work in just 30 minutes and is vet recommended for pets that suffer from flea allergies. Comfortis is composed of the active ingredient spinosad, a safe, new ingredient that is combined with beef to form a tasty chew. It should be given monthly with food and is highly effective for those pesky fleas that seem to outsmart us every summer.
Long Lasting. Comfortis will protect your pet from fleas for one month. For the best results you need to continue use year round. If you miss a dose, simply administer the dose when you remember and resume a regular monthly schedule.
Easy To Administer. Comfortis comes as a flavoured, chewable tablet making it easy to administer. Simply give a tablet to your dog or cat as if it were a treat either before or after their regular meal time.
Family Friendly. Comfortis is a tablet that is ingested, so you don’t have to worry about keeping the kids or other pets away from your dog or cat like you would with a ‘spot-on’ product. You also don’t need to worry about a greasy solution on your furniture or your clothes. As soon as the Comfortis tablet is taken you can play with your pet as usual.
Water Resistant. Comfortis is a tablet administered orally, so there is no risk of the treatment washing off and becoming ineffective.
For pets that suffer from allergies, whether it be to fleas or other allergens such as pollen, food, dust mite or grasses, effective and quick flea control is an important part of your treatment plan. Many allergic pets cannot tolerate even small numbers of fleas, so using a quick-kill product like Comfortis is essential. Comfortis works within 30 minutes and has killed 100% of fleas within 4 hours. You can’t get faster than that in a monthly product!
Frequently Asked Questions
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.
What is the active ingredient in Comfortis and how does it work?
The active ingredient in Comfortis is Spinosad. Spinosad is a natural insecticide that is not toxic for dogs or cats. It works by attacking the immune system of parasites like fleas. Comfortis is orally administered and should be given with food. Comfortis 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.
Is Comfortis safe?
Comfortis has a very high safety margin when used in conjunction with standard registered medications. The one precaution is that if you are using off-label ivermectin products (such as injectable ivermectin for mange or ticks), please consult with your vet before using Comfortis. Elanco takes adverse reactions very seriously and in the US some reactions have been associated with concurrent ivermectin usage and Comfortis. In Australia this practice is less common, but in some rural areas off-label ‘tick injections’ are used and may negatively react with Comfortis.
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.
What size Comfortis should I use on my dog?
Comfortis comes in five sizes based on the weight of your dog and is recommended for puppies older than 14 weeks:
When you purchase Comfortis ensure the packaging is sealed and free from damage. Check the expiry date to ensure you have at least 6 months to use the Comfortis in that box.
What should I look for when buying Comfortis?
Check the expiry date.
Ensure the packaging is sealed and free from damage.
Ensure you have the correct weight for your dog and purchase the correct dose. Do not split vials or doses.
What else do I need?
If you live in a tick area, use Advantix to protect against paralysis ticks in addition to or instead of your Comfortis.
You will also need a monthly heartworm treatment and quarterly intestinal wormer. You can use a combined product such as Interceptor Spectrum that does both heartworm and intestinal worms when used monthly.
