Comfortis flea treatment for dogs and cats

Even the most conscientious dog owner and owners of indoor cats can be faced with the reality of flea infestation. Just a couple of fleas can become a major flea infestation in no time at all. Did you know that female fleas can lay 40-50 eggs a day? And that during warm and humid conditions, those eggs can hatch as quickly as 2 days later? Believe it or not, it gets worse. Fleas are not just annoying, they can cause health issues in your dog and cat like Flea allergy dermatitis and severe infestations can cause anemia in older or younger pets as the fleas actually feed on the blood of your pet. Tapeworm can also be transmitted to your dog or cat through flea bites.

Proven protection

Using the active ingredient spinosad, Comfortis offers protection for your dog or cat for a full month. One Comfortis tablet starts killing fleas in just 30 minutes and prevents re infestation for 30 days.

As Comfortis is administered orally, there is no need to isolate your dog or cat from other animals or children and swimming, bathing and grooming will cause no issues for the effectiveness of this flea treatment. Say goodbye to the mess and stress of flea sprays with this tasty once a month chewable tablet.

When can I start using Comfortis?

Comfortis can be used on puppies and kittens from 14 weeks of age and treatment can be started at any time of year. When it comes to fleas, being proactive is better than being reactive! In Australia, pet owners know that summer and fleas can go hand in hand so starting your pet on a flea treatment before summer sets in is highly recommended, however, it is never too late to start.

Can I use Comfortis for my cat?

Yes! While there is not a separate product just for cats, the two smaller weight range packs can be used for cats. Just look for the Comfortis 2.3kg – 4.5kg and the 4.6kg – 9kg packs. These packs treat cats that weigh 1.4kg -2.7kg and 2.8kg -5.4kg respectively.
