My vet sold me a comfortis tablet which I fed to my cat 25 days ago. I have now started seeing flea eggs again where ever he lays down. Can I give him another one every though the 30 period is not up yet?

I would say Comfortis is not working for your Cat. Be sure it's the one for cats, not dogs and the correct dose.

Yes, first of all you need to be sure it's for cats not dogs, they are 2 different recipe's. If it is for cats, then cut it in half.

The active ingredient (Spinosad) is identical in both the dog and cat version of this product. I use the dog one for my dog and both cats (it says on the bottom of the packet that it is fine to do so) Saves me buying 2 packets of identical treatment. You just have to make sure the weight is in the right range (luckily for me all three of my pets are). Might save you some money!! :)

I always split the 20-40 lb pills for my cats. The vet only had 40-60 lb pills, would it still be safe to split them except in 6 pieces instead of the 4 pieces I usually split them in??

Can comfortis be cut into 4 small pieces? They are to big for my dog to swallow hole and he will not chew them. I give him all 4 pieces by putting them in mouth and rubbing his throat then he will swallow. Someone told me you are not suppose to cut them as they will not get proper dose. Thank you. Mine is for dogs 12 to 24 #

Hi Judy, I'm not quite sure but I cut mine as I have 1 small dog and one big so give my little one half a tablet then my big dog a full tablet. Seems to still do the trick and keep the flees away. Hope this answers your question

Hi Judy my dog will not take any pills of any kind so the vet said it was ok to crush the comfortis and place it in her food. I was told to be sure she took the entire pill. As far as giving them only part of a pill. Im sure the answer is no because the amount of medication may not be distributed equally. I hope this helps.

Comfortis Pink (For Dogs 2.3 - 4.5kg, Cats 1.4 - 2.7kg)

I gave my 2 6 pound yorkies comforts (160mg) since they developed a lot of fleas 2 weeks after receiving sentinel. I fed them first. About a half hour later one of the dogs vomited but I do not know which one. I did see the pill present along with his dog food in the vomit. The next day my one dog still has fleas running around his belly.
The vet said it was okay to give another comfortis dose of 160mg but to give some Pepcid first.
I'm just concerned if it was not him that vomited that I will be giving him too much
Any ideas?

Gosh, Linda, that's a tough call. I would be VERY careful about possible double doses, particularly if he was the one who vomited (which you have no way of knowing). My cat got so sick from Comfortis that she had to be taken to the vet for treatment. My other cat handled it just fine. (They are 8 lbs and 10 lbs.) I would say if you do it, watch him SUPER closely and be ready to take him in to the vet if necessary. Good luck!

Im not a vet but i do have an opinion. If you dont know which dog vomited i wouldnt give them another pill. You can use a topical flea treatment along with comfortis if you need extra help. This is what i would do. I wouldnt chance over dosing your little one. Just an opinion. Good luck

Comfortis Brown (For Dogs 27.1 - 54kg)

My dog, who eats everything, will not eat this pill. Is it okay to mash it until it's about coffee ground size and put it in peanut peanut butter? I'm wondering if is extended release in with case it I ground it would hit his system all at once and he would get a big overdose.

I always use peanut butter to give my dogs pills because they don't like pills, also I cut it in 2-4pices depending on the size of the pill and give it to them. I star in the morning and then the rest I give it to them during the rest of the day..

Comfortis Blue (For Dogs 4.6 - 9kg, For Cats 2.8 - 5.4kg)

I gave my chihuahua comfortis but There are cats around my house and they have fleas, then when she goes around the cats she gets fleas again. Will the comfortis continue to kill these fleas?

My advice is to use Wondercide flea spray. It is natural and it works. To stop the root of the reproduction of fleas use a non-toxic powder that dehydrates the fleas, treat the area front and backyard, inside of the house, if you live in the U.S. Flea busters sprays for you and guarantee it for one year.

Comfort is is suppose to protect him for a month until the next dose is required and will capture the flea cycle so wait each month. I poisoned my cat accidentally by giving the next dose too soon. This stuff is pretty toxic.

With so many deaths reported, why is this product still marketed and available? I bought a pack and now i am going to take it back. Can people sue this company, or pet lives are that cheap?

Testing methods . For example, say they may have a group of 1000 dogs and maybe 100 got sick or died. I guess that is acceptable side effect i know it is supposed to be a within a range that is within the parameter of safety. Or they purposely us the test method is not the right one, which is done to skew the numbers the CDC did it watch " Vaxxed" not kidding here. For me one dead pet is one to many. I know for big pharma Bill Clinton signed a bill that no can sue them, no liability at all. A legal expert is needed. I gave my cat a 1/2 pill it has been 24 hours then I read the reviews we went into total shock mode. after reading reviews of
all the pet owners that lost their beloved pet. We gave our cat activated charcoal in tuna which is what people are given in the Emergency Dept for poisoning , it absorbs the poison. We hope the cat survives this ... never ever again.
