BY the way nothing else had changed their diet or environment or food or house nothing.

I got Comfortis for both of my dogs, just one treatment and they were fine. They also didn't have a problem with fleas for about 2 years. My female got a few ticks. But no fleas.
Even though it worked great, I don't think I would do it again, my dogs are older and I prefer to keep the poison on the outside, in the event something bad should happen.

Smile Aggression in my Devon Rec cat after Comfortis

I have three cats and one nearly died on Comfortis. He lost so much weight it was really scary. My other. At a Devon Rex has become quite aggressive since we gave her 1/2 tablet of Comfortis. She constantly sets out to attack my 14 yr old moggie and my 6 yr old Ragdoll cat. It is quite upsetting and sometimes relentless. We either have to put her in the garage to cool off for a while or separate her in a different area of he house. Will this Comfortis ever leave her body and will she ever stop these attack? I have tried to re home her but have had no success. She is probably better off in a house where she is given all the attention. Please can someone also suggest another natural, non poisonous product that is very effective? I would be very grateful because we are going into our summer and the fleas are very active again.

my dog has had severe reactions to this drug. He is a mixed breed adult dog. I give him one pill monthly...this is only our second month. Both times he (57 lbs.) has vomited. This time he vomited and found it difficult to walk. His left side tremors were really strong. I was using Frontline, but it seems ineffective. Any one have thoughts?

Have you tried other topical treatments such as Advantix?

I had my Poodle on Comfortis. She did well. My Mom had her Dog Baby on it. What I found that one pill will last about 3 months giving them the correct size for their weight. When my Mom passed away, I got Baby. I kept them on it in 3 months intervals. that was when I would start to see a flea. I live in Florida where Fleas thrive. At 16 Tootsie the poodle being old and having related age issues I took her off of it and just gave it to Baby every 3 Months. This still worked. Any fleas that jumped from Tootsie to Baby died. I still had no fleas. Eventually at 17 1/2 years I had to put my Poodle down . I still give Baby hers every 3 Months during Flea season. She is now about 17 ,but is in generally good health for her age.This may help you that are afraid of using it. You do not have to give to them as much as it says. I do not like to give chemicals to my pet either. This may also help those who have more than 1 dog and one does not tolerate it well.
My Daughter in Law has 3 Dogs. The Jack Russell has horrible Skin issues . She can not tolerate Topicals for fleas or their bites. She has now put Missy on the 3 Month interval. Her skin is clearing up. It was horrible and stunk . The house and other 2 dogs are also benefiting as my poodle did.
Hope this helps.
