Comfortis Chewable Tab for Dogs 9.1 – 18kg (Green)
Here are just a few of the features that together set Comfortis® apart from other flea products you may have used in the past:
Starts to kill fleas in 30 minutes
Lasts a full month
Beef-flavoured chewable tablet
No mess – play with your dog immediately after treatment
No risk of application site reactions
Can’t be rubbed or shaken off – won’t stain carpeting, upholstery or clothing or damage hard surfaces
Can’t wash off
Can’t be washed or rinsed off during bathing or swimming.
The active ingredient in Comfortis® is spinosad. When ingested by fleas, spinosad targets the flea’s nervous system, causing the flea to show involuntary muscle contraction and tremors. Spinosad-induced excitation leads to flea paralysis and rapid death.
While extremely toxic to fleas, spinosad has a high safety margin in mammals, so Comfortis® can be used in puppies from 14 weeks of age.
Because you give Comfortis® to your pet orally, you do not have to tolerate the mess of topical products. Comfortis® is rapidly absorbed in your dog’s bloodstream, where it circulates and protects your dog from flea infestation for a full month. Comfortis® begins killing fleas within 30 minutes, so you know your dog is getting fast relief and long-lasting protection.
Comfortis® does not depend on your dog’s skin and hair coat to distribute across the body. That’s why Comfortis® is a great choice for dogs with skin problems, as flea protection is vitally important and cannot be compromised.
