Comfortis flea tablets have revolutionised flea prevention in dogs. Traditionally, flea prevention in dogs is achieved by using shampoos and washes, sprays, flea collars and spot-on formulations. The problem with these topical products is that many dogs are resistant to being bathed and do not like having spot-on liquids applied to their skin. Additionally, many shampoos, washes and sprays do not have long durations of action allowing fleas from the environment to re-infest the dog.
Comfortis tablets for dogs are designed for the treatment and prevention of flea infestations. Comfortis has been available for many years in Australia and in the USA but has only recently been licensed in the UK. The beauty of medicating dogs with Comfortis is that owners no longer need to spend hours contending with messy baths or topical medications. With the addition of this tablet into the dog's food, fleas are killed for up to 4 weeks. This also means that dogs can go swimming immediately following application and be bathed with other medicated or non-medicated shampoos without the fear of washing the flea treatment away.
Comfortis tablets should always be given with food.
Comfortis tablets are only available on written veterinary prescription
