First time user...So far so good

Like most people I've alternated between frontline & k-9 advantix for flea control on my dogs. This is my first experience with comfortis, but so far I am impressed. We live in the country and we do occasionally get fleas, ticks aren't much of a problem for our dogs in the yard but our cats wander far & they get ticks. The cats are on frontline, but since fleas are the only problem for our dogs we tried comfortis this month and it has been fabulous. One pill for each dog once monthly, it costs about the exact same as a single dose of frontline, very easy to give without the worry of when to or not to bathe them, and it seems to be working. Also, our dogs are both over 100 lbs, and like I say, it's not anymore expensive than similar flea products. It's not designed for ticks, so if you have ticks, I would recommend staying on frontline or advantix. If fleas are your only concerns though, I would definitely recommend someone trying this product. Our wolfhound has a flea allergy as well and since he's had the pill, his skin has cleared up a lot (not as red or itchy) and his face isn't constantly buried in his furr chewing on himself anymore, so it MUST be working!
Pros: Very easy to administer
Cons: Not effective against ticks

I work at an animal hospital and got a sample of Comfortis to use for my dog. I am so glad they finally have a flea pill that actually kills fleas for a month long! It is a huge leap from Program (only sterilized the eggs, did NOT kill fleas) and Capstar (kills fleas fast, but only for 24 hours). My dog is not so crazy about the taste of these, but I can hide in other food. It is so nice to not worry about when I can bathe him or making sure the cats don't try to lick a topical off of him.
Cons: No tick protection

Many of my birds have survived thanks to this antibiotic. Why I can't find it in a store is beyond me. This is a miracle tonic that at only 2.99 can save all types of birds. It's almost impossible to … more ›
