Advantages: chewable tablet that dogs like to take... starts killing fleas within 30 minutes and kills 100% within 4 hrs... Comfortis kills fleas before they lay eggs and It is supose to kill newly hatch eggs before they go through their 3 wk life cycle. (All this info is on the insert in the pkg of pills.) Now, I did see a scattered 3 or 4 fleas after the first month of use but after the second month of use ... no fleas. Best of all COMFORTIS does not wash away when you give multiple baths within a month...
We live in Hawaii and have two big dogs to protect our cabinetry shop. They are in- and outside as they please and get to go to the beach once a day. Fleas and ticks were normal for us. We tried to keep them under control with Advantix, Frontline and shampoos, but with not much luck. As one of our dogs started to get allergic reactions to all that stuff and the fleas. Our vet recommended Comfortis. It works great. The 1st month there were still a couple of fleas towards the end of the month. Second and third month they were completely flea and tick free. His hair grew back and his skin is healthy. The only thing that concerns me is that they took it easily the first 2times, but avoided the pill the 3rd. I wonder what it does to the dogs if it kills the fleas that radical. It also seem to me to last longer than just 1month. I have been giving it after 1 1/2 for the last two and they are still fine. Does anyone have similar experiences?

Comfortis flea pills contain Spinosad, which is an ingredient that kills any adult fleas that try to bit the dog. The pill continues to kill any new exposures to fleas for an entire month. Comfortis has revolutionized the way flea pills work and .The bottom line is that both Comfortis and Trifexis contain Spinosad to kill the fleas that are on your dog, and keep them dead for 30 days. The determining factor for you is going to be whether you want to also treat for heartworms and intestinal worms. If so, then you’ll want to use Trifexis. Both pills are available only from your vet, so talk to him about it if you have more questions.The flea pill can also be used in conjunction with a topical flea medication such as Revolution. This is especially helpful if your dog suffers from irritation or allergies caused by flea bites. But if the product gets washed off during grooming, your dog is still protected by the Comfortis pill.Comfortis is an oral flea control product. This is available for dogs and cats. It is a monthly pill that must be given every 30 days with a meal to help prevent flea infestation. ** This pill does not prevent ticks.
