The first FDA approved tablet that kills fleas and prevents infestation for a full month
Fleas can affect more than pets. They can affect entire families. Though tiny, they can cause severe discomfort and pose a health threat to pets in the form of irritation (itching, scratching, chewing, biting), flea allergy dermatitis and, in severe infestations, anemia. Plus, ingested fleas can transmit tapeworm infection to pets.
Comfortis protects dogs and cats against fleas. Comfortis is the first flavored tablet that kills fleas and prevents infestations on pets for a full month. Comfortis also:
- Starts killing fleas within 30 minutes
- Killed 100% of fleas in 4 hours*
*In a controlled laboratory study in dogs
Comfortis flea protection is available through licensed veterinarians.
