Seems like the winning treatment will be Comfortis. I had tons of people tell me it's the best it's
used as an oral medication once a month. Only works for fleas not ticks, I called my vet and he also said
it was a great product and he used it on his dogs. He suggested using a collar for the ticks and that should
help with that problem.
We had the same problem with our dog when he was a puppy. Frontline was simply not working to kill the fleas that he came home with. Comfortis worked really well for him, but we still use Frontline because it provides tick protection (which Comfortis does not do). I have heard it is important to give Comfortis with food (it's a digested tablet) in order for it to be effective.
Definitely talk with your vet, though.
t works for my dachshund, and it doesn't seem to cause her any problems.
I tried comfortis and it seemed to work pretty well. Unfortunately, I
have little dogs and the pill seemed to upset one of the dogs stomach
so we stopped using it. I will mention to try and stay away from K-9
advantix. I tried it and it put one of my dogs in the hospital for 2
days and made another very ill.
I have a pug and been using Comfortis for two months because nothing
else worked. I love it. You notice the fleas coming off within 30
min. She did get sick the first time I gave it to her because I did
not give her time for her food to settle. They only thing I am unsure
of is the long term side effects. I really like my vet and I dont
think that she would have prescribed something that would be harmful.
I would recommend it!!
I had used frontline for years (dogs and cats) but had to switch to Comfortis earlier this summer for dog. It has worked much better so far. Good luck!
I use it for my Papillon, Romeo. We live next to a heavily wooded area and he is very allergic to fleas. For my dog, at least, it works amazingly well. The dead fleas just fall off the dog and he doesn't seem
to have any problem tolerating the stuff. The only drawback is that it doesn't kill ticks. I'd give it a try! Two thumbs up!
I love, love, love comfortis! It doesn't work on ticks and I live in the woods so that's my only gripe. My inside dog was on frontline first, then the other and it worked for a little while and then stopped. She has never had a flea since I put her on comfortis and she's been on it for over two years. My other dog is an outside dog that I adopted and she had fleas by the third day I had her. I took her to the vet, got comfortis and after I gave it to her I walked outside and saw dead fleas on her within thirty minutes. This dog runs the woods and everything else and hasn't had anymore fleas since I started her on it.
I haven't used that but I used Frontline for years and it completely
stopped working. I started with Advantix and I
have not had any problems what-so-ever. As a matter of fact, I haven't
even used any this summer. I used Advantix last summer and I made all
the fleas leave obviously.
Love it, that's what I use on my dog
My dog's been taking Comfortis two months now. I still see the fleas
on her. But she's not scratching and moaning and losing hair and
having her skin turn red and all the usual bad stuff. Instead she's
behaving as though she's comfortable. So, yes, it's working.
Wonderful product. We use it on all of our dogs and
it works 100%.
I have used it on my dogs and it works VERY well. I did have a vet
tell me if your dog is prone to seizures, they should not take
Comfortis, but my dogs (12 pounds and 30 pounds) did not have a problem
with it. Good luck!
I have had good results with Comfortis with my two dogs. The fleas are gone overnight. But remember that it does nothing for ticks, so if that is a problem you may want to continue with the topical treatments.
