    Default Comfortis Flea chews

    The more I look at this product, the more I like it. Definitely think I will get some on Wednesday when I have the dosh. Hopefully thid will be the end of Oskar's itch, and his hairless patches will grow back....poor bugger. And even if this isn't the cause, it certainly won't hurt him to be on these. The chews are such an awesome idea. At least once swallowed, you know your pet is covered for the month...even though they are pricey, it seems worth it!!!

    One of our pups has had a serious reaction to Comfortis (confirmed).. Just keep Oskar in your sight when you give him his first dose just in case.

    Have used it with both my dogs with no dramas.
    Keira gets flea allergy dermatitis (irritation and loss of hair from flea bites) and thefirst time I gave them it within a week her skin had cleared uo and hair started growing back, no dramas since then and I only have to re dose them every 2-3 months when I notice a flea or two.
    But as Mitte said keep an eye on him as better safe then sorry.

    K &P, that's what has happened to Oskar, he has patches of hair missing and has skin irritations. Can't wait until Wednesday until I can dose him up!

    The same company also make a product called "Panoramis" it still has the spinosad, but also has milbemycin oxime, so it treats for fleas, as well as heartworm and hookworm, whipworm and roundworm. Works out cheaper to treat like this for the year than it does doing it seperatley..one tablet a month does it all!

    I switched to comfortis a while ago when every drop on i tried was not working.

    it has worked a treat, have never had any bad reactions.
    I'm a big fan

    the recommended dosage is 1 tablet per month, however i found i gave her 1 a month for the first 2 months but after that 1 tablet lasts 6 - 7 weeks.

    I love comfortis

    I battled with fleas for quite a while, using a heap of different things each time, comfortis is the only product i found that has kept my lab completely flea free.

    That said i guess results on any product would differ from dog to dog.

    I have noticed Oskar still has a couple of fleas but as others have pointed out, the fleas will eventually all go. It is a hell of a bit better than anything I have ever used.
