Product Info

What is Comfortis?

Comfortis is the first FDA-approved, chewable beef-flavored tablet (derived from pork protein and hydrolyzed soy) that kills fleas and prevents flea infestations on dogs and cats for a full month. Comfortis for Dogs & Cats requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Dogs & Cats (14 weeks of age or older)

Benefits:

  • Starts killing fleas within 30 minutes
  • Lasts a full month
  • Kills fleas before they can lay eggs
  • Comes in a convenient chewable, beef-flavored tablet
  • Spinosad, the active ingredient in Comfortis, is environmentally friendly

How does Comfortis work?

The active ingredient in Comfortis (Spinosad) kills fleas by causing excitation of the insect's nervous system, leading to paralysis and rapid death.

Cautions:

Side effects may occur, including vomiting. If your pet is experiencing loss of appetite, lethargy, or any other difference in behavior, contact your veterinarian. The FDA has received reports of adverse reactions in dogs receiving the drug Comfortis (spinosad) concurrently with high, extra-label doses of ivermectin. Dogs receiving extra-label doses of ivermectin to treat non-responsive demodectic mange and other conditions have developed signs of ivermectin toxicity. Ivermectin is an ingredient found in heartworm preventatives such as Heartgard Plus, Heartgard, Iverhart Plus and Ivomec. In cats, the most common adverse reaction recorded in clinical trials was vomiting. Other adverse reactions were: lethargy, decreased appetite, weight loss, and diarrhea. Use with caution with concomitant extra-label use of ivermectin.

Brand Name:

Comfortis (Elanco)

Generic Name:

Spinosad

Customer Reviews
Comfortis is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 1181.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most effective method to fight fleas. I tried Comfortis 3 years ago after watching all the topical treatments (Advantage etc) fail miserably. The dogs stay pest-free even in Hot weather. One tip - crush the tablets into powder, then mix it into something that has a good odor. Otherwise it can be a challenge to get the pills into your puppy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best flea treatment I have ever used. I have been using Comfortis on my dogs for a couple of years now and have not had any flea issues at all. The dogs do not have any side effects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fleas don't stand a chance! Comfortis works extremely well and me and my little Shnauzer couldn't be happier. Within an hour of giving the dose, the fleas (let me say there were a bunch of 'em) were all gone and they haven't visited her since. Highly recommended product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective If Swallowed :-) Comfortis comes in pill form. You can hide it in a piece of cheese or meat only if your dog has no sense of smell. My dogs spit the pills out everytime. So I have to use the "shove the pill down the throat" method. This Is fine with my little terrier, but my large mix-breed is another story. The pill for over 50lb dogs is huge (round & flat) and very hard to get down. So, I bought the cheaper Comfortis for my small dog to save money and bought a more expensive chewable flea preventive for my large dog. Although the pills can be difficult to administer, they are very effective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly effective! Over the years we’ve had 3 dogs and 4 cats. Never a problem with fleas. For the first time ever, this year we had a flea problem. Normal topicals were’t working Flea baths didn’t work. At the vet’s recommendation we tried Comfortis. I thought the claims made for this product were a bit optimistic. I’m accustomed to being consistently disappointed by overhyped products. Comfortis did exactly what it claimed it would do. Within an hour of giving Comfortis to our cat and dog, dead or dying fleas were literally falling off both animals. With that and some thorough cleaning followed bythe application of diatomaceous earth around the house, the flea issue has disappeared. I’ll add that the cat did vomit but not until 3 hours after being given Comfortis. The dog had no adverse reaction. Extremely effective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our vet put my dog on Comfortis because she would end up biting the fur off her tail. It worked so well & we hadn't had to worry about fleas. My husband broke his foot & can't drive so we were without transportation for awhile. I ordered a 6 month supply form PetMeds & it was delivered to us quickly. We will continue to buy from PetMeds because not only was it fast delivery of this great product but, the price was cheaper than it was at our vets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fleas I was so hesitant to give my two cats and dog oral pesticide to kill the fleas. I tried the natural method first which actually did help but not resolve problem. Within hours dead fleas were falling off my animals. The product works great. My animals did well although I believe my 14 yr old cat seemed to have a fever for a day. I could tell he had a reaction but recovered well. It was torture to see them itch and scratch constantly. I do not regret giving in to the chemical approach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use, works fast I purchased this product from our Vet. After our 6 month supply ran out I wanted to purchase another 6 month supply. The Receptionist told me it would cost me an additional $50- because my dog weighed 2 pounds more, which was still way less than 20 pounds. When I questioned this, she said the Vet will return to the office next week, I could ask him why. My co-worker encouraged me to go through PetMed Express. I’m so happy I did! I saved $50- plus dollars, service was fast, doggie is very happy! I’ll continue to use your services, thank you so much.

Does Comfottis help with ticks?

Asked by: Jeff
Comfortis kills fleas and prevents flea infestations on dogs and cats. It does not protect pets from ticks.

What does the cat flea pill of Comfortis look like? My vet gave my cat 1 flea pill and it looked like a small pill. She sent me home with two more bigger pills of Comfortis. I'm worried I went home with the dog flea pills.

Asked by: maddyquilt
Actually, it is the same tablet used in both dogs and cats. The dose is different and cats actually take a higher dose than dogs. The smaller tablet you saw your vet give may have been Capstar, which is an excellent flea control but only lasts for 24 hours. The weight range for each species is written on the back of the individual tablet package so double check that to make sure you have the correct strength tablet for your cat.

My cat is not eating this chewable tablet. Is it safe to crush it up and sprinkle on food? I broke it up in smaller pieces and it's been in his bowl for 2 days now.

Asked by: Beanie
It is ok to crush up the medication. Try giving it to your pet with a small amount of wet food so your pet will consume the entire dose at once. If your pet still doesn't eat it after that attempt please speak with your veterinarian regarding using an alternative medication that your pet will ingest or that can be applied topically.
