Thought our dog was going to die!!
About 4 hrs after giving our dog a dose he became lethargic and the third eye was coming down on his eyes. He could only walk slowly and just stared into space! Luckily after a few hours he has improved but we were extremely worried and had no doubt that this product caused this!
Product works but not for my kitty
This product works to eradicate fleas and my cat Loves the smell of the product but on a full tummy, he wants water immediately after consuming it and vomits 24 hours after administering the tablet and will do so for 3 days straight and be very ginger and sooky. He suffers from feline paresthesia and during these days it is more pronounced like the Comfortis affects his central nervous system. I won’t administer again. It’s one of the only products on the market that works for him but makes him so ill. I can’t touch him during this phase because his nerves are hypersensitive and he bites unless I am super super gentle.
Purchased in October 2018 at Ebay.
almost killed my cats
I read the directions very well, fed my cats gave them the medication for fleas, its smells awful , and one cat could not breath rushed, the other was vomiting worst , stuff not well tolerated in cats at all, thankfully the vet gave my one very sick cat IV meds , the other cat was just vomiting and did not stop for like 4 hours, but the other cat had to stay on anti histamines for over a week, I am lucky he lived :(
The only thing that works!
I bought one 6 pack for my dog and 2 cats. There was a sale on and I got the product for $70 which I thought was well priced. I have used Frontline and Advantage in the past, and over the last 3 months have noticed an increase in fleas despite frequent spot on treatments. I was nervous to use Comfortis because of some reviews, but I am so glad I did. My dog ate the tablet without hesitation and then ate a big bowl of dry food and mince, my cats wouldn't eat it without being mixed with food. I noticed fleas dying within half and hour. Within an ...hour all three animals were fine. After 2 hours I would say all of the fleas on my dog were dead or dying. She was fine and still playful with her tail wagging. The cats began itching like crazy after around 3 hours. I think the fleas were biting more as they were dying. They were locked in the bathroom and though I didn't notice as many dead fleas on them, I think they were cleaning them off. Once treated I washed the pets, flea bombed my entire house and hot washed and dried every soft fabric. Pets are fine, fleas are gone. I am a total convert and love this product. It really works like magic.
When I had a kennel, I had 20 dogs and used this, never had a problem. Never gave it to my cats. Now, I have 5 dogs, 8 to 14 lbs. I buy the Comfortis for 20 lbs dogs and split them in half or quarters depending on the dog, it saves money and with the 6 pack it gives me enough to give them twice a year. The fleas begin to fall off dead with in 1/2 hour. I have never had any of my dogs react badly to Comfortis. I give them their first dose in spring first sign of fleas, then I give a second dose in fall first sign of fleas. Never, once every mon...th. Yes, only twice a year. We never have fleas. Maybe we don't have fleas bad anyway, I don't know but we lived on a ranch with the 20 dogs and now at the beach with only 5, same results. Now, my dogs are Volpino's, it's an Italian breed, they don't dog stink, basically they just need to be brushed now and then, so I don't have to bath often unless they get into something. I think many of you are overdosing. I get a prescription from my vet, my online provider faxes my Vet for approval, it's sent to me in the mail. I pay about $70., at the Vet it's about $100.
How did they get it so wrong.
My dog has always had a problem with being itchy, however Panoramis was brilliant and controlled this very, very well. Then it had a name change, while bizarrely supposedly bring the same formula, but my dog isn't getting anywhere near the same relief. Really unhappy, this stuff is controlling fleas , but absolutely not controlling the general itching she has had since she was s puppy. Far as I'm concerned they've changed the formula to save money and given us an inferior product. On eBay original Panoramis is selling for $300 plus, proof that people are seeking out the original product.
Best tablet ever
Don’t know how this gets such bad reviews .
This tablet is awesome . Works so friggin fast and my cat Lionel is flea free so bloody quickly .
When he had fleas he’s constantly wet with all the washing , after his treatment he’s back me dry and can actually sleep.
Don’t foot around with the tablet. Cut into 3 and shove down their throat
Avoid this product...made my dog sick
We treated our 8 year old mini schnauzer with this product with his evening meal. The next morning he had blood in his stools. The Vet suggested to observe him as he was still active and eating. He had blood in his stools for 2 days then thankfully back to normal. I won’t risk using this again it was very worrying to see that blood.
Great product- does the job fast.
I was recommended a scaled-down dose of Comfortis by a holistic pet practitioner, for my extremely flea infested and agitated golden retriever pup. it worked in 1 hour and has provided amazing relief to our girl. Side effects include joy, relief, sleep, and comfort as the brand name suggests. While I still hate using poisons on my dog, I couldn't watch her distress any longer, and I think a scaled down dose will give you all the benefits without possible negative side effects. I highly recommend Comfortis (in a scaled down dose).

This is a dangerous drug...don't take the risk
The night i gave my cat comfortis she instantly became very quiet and lethargic. After a while i thought I'd pick her up and stood her on the floor only to find her back legs had gone. I then panicked and called the vet unfortunately it was after hrs so i had to drive 1/2 hr away to reach the emergency vet.
The long and short of it is the vet said no it would not b the comfortis causing her problems therefore proceeded to treat her for a tick shaving her which put her into a frenzy (to say the least) and terrified her...they found no tick so t...
Do not administer to cats
Our first two male rescue cats refused to eat these pills, even when hidden in food. Tried forcing it and I'm sure it resulted in one developing kidney and urethral issues and he had to be put down.
Or other 2 rescue females will eat anything but one got very bloated on this medication and vomited a lot. She's now not eating very much at all.
Damn you elanco. This product should be recalled.
Dachshund had seizures within 36 hours of taking comfortis.
My 9 year old dachshund suffered gran mal seizures over 2 days within 24 - 36 hours of taking Comfortis. This was surprising since she had previously taken Comfortis without incident, Nonetheless I firmly believe that the Comfortis caused the seizures. For instance, there could be a cumulative effect of this medication.
The condition was only stopped with proper emergency treatment, (IV Valium and Phenobarbital) and ongoing medication. Thankfully, she has not suffered another seizure since the initial onset 3 weeks ago during which she h...as been receiving daily phenobarbital medication, which she may have to take for her lifetime. Additionally, she has never had seizures before in her lifetime. Consequently it is very probable that the seizures were a side effect of the Comfortis pills. The question is: Does the benefit of killing fleas outweigh the potential risk of seizures and other serious side effects? I think not! Needless to say I will not use this or any other internal flea medication on my animals.

Has worked well for years
I have been using Comfortis for over 7 years on my 11 year old schnoodle after my trusted vet recommended them. He has never had any problems or side effects. We had a major flea problem that would not go away. It was so bad at one stage that his stomach was covered with fleas and we were getting bitten as well. I tried other flea treatments that just didn't work. I have never seen a flea on him in 7 years.

Questions & Answers
I think the pet store gave me the wrong size comfortis for my dogs..my dogs weigh up to 8kg and the pack I was given is 9.1 to 18kg..can I cut these ones in half and will half be effective? I have opened the pack so can't take it back....
I gave my dog comfortis with his food. He was fine. But 24 hours later he threw up. it looked like it was an acid type of substance from the medicine. Did the comfortis go into his system? or could he throw it up 24 hours later?
