Proven protection against the threat of fleas
Comfortis offers proven protection that lasts:
- The first FDA-approved tablet that kills fleas and prevents flea infestations for a full month.
- In a controlled laboratory study, the active ingredient in Comfortis (spinosad) killed 100% of fleas in 4 hours in dogs

The introduction of spinosad for use in agriculture resulted in the receipt of a Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award in 1999 from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.2 The award was presented to Dow AgroSciences LLC in the category of “Designing Safer Chemicals” for the introduction of spinosad as an insect control product for use on crops. This award demonstrates that spinosad as a technology for insect control has a favorable environmental profile. This award is not relevant to the safety and efficacy of Comfortis, nor does it confer any environmental benefit to Comfortis.
Fleas: worse than you think
Even the most conscientious dog owner can be faced with a flea infestation. Your dog could be exposed in your home or backyard, on walks, or at the groomer or boarding kennel. A few fleas can turn into a major infestation if not treated quickly. Female fleas can lay 40 to 50 eggs a day.3
But it gets worse:4
- Fleas may cause extreme discomfort for your dog: scratching, chewing, biting, fur loss and restlessness.
- Severe infestations may cause anemia, particularly in young or older pets.
- Fleas are the source of flea allergy dermatitis (FAD), a common veterinary skin condition.
- Tapeworm infections may be transmitted by fleas.
