Comfortis™ (spinosad)

Comfortis™ kills fleas FAST for immediate relief

  • Starts killing fleas in just 60 minutes
  • 100% effective in dogs and over 95% effective in cats within 4 hours*
  • Available in a convenient beef flavoured chewable tablet
  • Administer with food from maximum effectiveness
  • Safe for puppies and kittens from 14 weeks of age

Fleas (Ctenocephalides felis) can be a major problem for dogs, cats and their owners. These blood-sucking parasites cause considerable discomfort for pets, leading to scratching, chewing, biting and restlessness.

Comfortis™ is a no-fuss, no-mess way to protect cats and dogs from fleas for the whole month. These convenient, chewable beef flavoured tablets provide fast-acting and lasting month long relief.


Comfortis™ is proven to rapidly kill fleas and control flea allergy dermatitis in dogs and cats. For a healthy pet and a happy home, monthly treatment with Comfortis™ should continue the entire year without interruption.

As Comfortis™ is an oral product, there are no restrictions with regards to swimming or washing after treatment. Dogs or cats can be treated while wet and can be exposed to water immediately after treatment. Additionally, there is no requirement to exclude the dog or cat from access to any furniture or home fittings. Unlike spot-on treatments, Comfortis™ won’t rub or wash off and damage any surfaces or other materials in the home. 

To minimise the likelihood of flea reinfestation, it is important to treat all animals within a household. Where a heavy environmental infestation is present, the concurrent use of a registered environmental control product on areas such as bedding and carpet may facilitate more rapid resolution of the flea infestation.

 

Important Safety Information

Comfortis™ rapidly kills fleas (Ctenocephalides felis) and is intended for the treatment, prevention and control of flea infestations and for the control of flea allergy dermatitis in dogs and cats for one month following a single administration. Comfortis™ is not recommended for use in puppies and kittens less than 14 weeks of age.

Concurrent use of Comfortis™ with high off-label doses of ivermectin for parasitic mange or demodecosis has been associated with an increased risk of developing neurological signs typically associated with ivermectin toxicity. Comfortis™ should not be administered concurrently with high doses of macrocyclic lactones.
