My dog died within 4 days of ingesting this poison
Two healthy dogs, 47kg female and 54kg male, gave tablet Wednesday and female throwing up within a couple of hours, vomiting and lethargic for two days and rushed her to vet on third day too weak to stay upright. Diagnosed with acute Liver failure, on drip for day and a half and had a seizure, liver, pancreas, failed, glucose levels extremely low, internal bleeding, bloody vomiting and diarrhoea, PTS four days after ingesting this supposedly safe poison. Thank God the male was only a bit lethargic for a couple of days and seems ok.

Treated 3 dogs, each after a meal. Within 1 hr, all 3 were puking all over the house. Now, I'm worried about other effects, plus seeing $66.00 spewed all over the floor.
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.
Healthy 16 month old cat died after giving comfortis
I have used comfortis for about 3 years now on my GSD and 3 cats. After giving them a dose the usual vomiting would occur but they were always fine.
2 nights ago I gave all the animals a comfortis, I always follow directions and am super careful!! They had the comfortis at 7:30pm and in the army hours of the following morning my healthy, strong fit as a fiddle 18 month old cat was dead. He looked as though he had curled up and gone to sleep but he didn't wake up. This product is so dangerous and NOT worth the risk. Please be cautious and think twice about using this product.
Made both my cats very sick and damaged their livers
Gave both my cats this product once,to be sure I bought the lowest dose. My smallest cat vomited started shaking became really withdrawn had diarrhoea. My other cat vomited and howled in pain took both to the vet as they didn’t settle and remained unwell,both had many tests and the verdict was that these pills caused liver damage.my small cat had diarrhoea daily for months. The cats were well before. Now both are on special diets because of the damage. Stay away from this.

After reading so many scary negatives on this product I was very skeptical, If I was'nt clutching at straws I probably would'nt have even tried this product in fear of the worst.
But, after trying several spot on treatments and outdoor sprays to control the environmental infestations I had no other options.
I used diomataceous Earth outside, revolution spot on, frontline spot on and sprays in excess of $10/ltr and bathed our 6 month old ragdoll at least once a week (easier to manually pull fleas off a long haired cat). Nothing was working unt...
Comfortis.....give in 2 doses...
I'm a cat rescuer and have seen some cats vomit after given comfortis. I started breaking up the treatment into 2 doses......one half one day and 2nd half one or two days later. I find less per dose makes it easier to digest. Cats have temperamental stomachs in order to eliminate furballs from all their grooming.
If your pet is drooling, shaking, hotf like dff like like with a fever, chattering teeth, blinking quicky, convulsing, get it to a bet7
Comfortis nearly killed my dog
This pill sent my dog into actue liver failure. It’s a miracle she survived. Not recommended. This is poisonous stuff.
Made one cat very ill, had to take to vet.
Dont use it unless you have pet insurance, spare money and dont value your animal...
Within about 5 to 10 minutes after feeding my male cat a tablet he couldnt stop vomiting, sneezing, shaking his head, eyes watering hiding, tounge hanging out and rowing in pain. It really made us feel awful and now my cat who used to follow me every where and love me soo much, avoids me. Im heartbroken and Disgusted with this terrible product! My cat is within the perfect weight range and NEVER had a bad reaction to revolution or that other liquid capsule o...ne. I bought this mainly due to the stupid idiots advice at petbarn, as revolution was too expensive for me at the time. ( now realise i can buy it online cheaper) $1400 vet bill LATER... and The vet actually gave me a single shot of revolution and it worked almost instantly again with no Horrible side effects. I will admit. one girl cat i have did eat it straight up and didnt seen to have a problem... (shes street tough and doesnt seem to ever vomit) but she did go very quiet after feeding her the tablet. But this is a HORRIBLE product! the information leaflet even says that if they vomit up the tablet just re dose them again. DO NOT DO THIS to CATS you can easily posion cats and damage their kidneys/liver. my vet was disgusted at the information leaflet and the terrible advice by petbarn. I wish i had read the reviews on here first :(
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.
My little Maltese was well, I would never recommend this product it made my dog really ill, vomiting constantly, I had to take him to the vet and he is still ill today, Do not give this product to your pet, should come with a warning, I purchased the product from the vet as well, thinking I was giving him the best care, I then had to pay the vets bill today, Disgusting, would never ever recommend this product. Look for a more pet friendly product..
Killed my dog within 24hrs she was fit as a fiddle strong as a bull i have videos of this to prove it stay away from this stuff its truly evil google it under its other names also known as Panoramis or trifexis
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
Made both our cats very sick
Administered to our two cats, both young and healthy. Both began vomiting a few hours later, which continued intermittently for the next 24 hours. One was lethargic, sick, and refused to eat for over a week afterwards. Would not use again.
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.
Not yet sure if this is a good product-Who the heck makes these Tablets this size
Who the heck makes these Tablets? size of tablet vs size of cats mouth, had to break it in to four bit and feed it to my cat, tablets don't have break lines.
It doesn't appear to have worked in 30 minutes like they said but my old wise cat did disappear 10 minutes after eating it so I wonder if he threw it back up.
The cost for 3 tablets is outrageous and found that only vets sell them in pkts of 6.
After reading other reviews I have to wonder why my new vet recommended this brand?
Will go back to the other brand where it is placed on cats neck next time and given the other reviews will not re use
Cat had a Very adverse reaction
1-2 hours after giving the tablet my 13 year old female Tonkinese cat became restless, seeking access to outside. Then overthe next hour she lay prone on the tiled floor, then withdrew to a corner then became more restless and seemingly grooming a dozen places at once, her paws, her belly, her tail. Her belly was heaving with rapid breathing and her ears were red suggesting high stress. Then an awful groan and she vomited up a belly full of food and assuming the tablet as well. She withdrew again and sought a quiet area away from me. Shortly af...ter that she toileted and whilst there were recognizable stools, it was quite liquid and especially foul smelling. Over the next hour she calmed down and sought to be snuggled against me. Her breathing settled to a more normal rate and dying fleas appeared on her fur surface. I rang 24 hour vet but they offered no knowledge of Comfortis reaction. A very worrying 4 hours. i had been with her the previous 24 hours and the only difference to her day was the Comfortis flea treatment tablet. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND
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).
Dont use it
Dosed two perfectly healthy 8 year old cats. One is dead, the other sick and vomiting for two days. Our cat died two days after the pill after being
off her food lethargic, then died. The other exactly the same symptoms but got better after 3 days.
I want to see this product withdrawn, or see the CEO eat the prescribed dose. I wish I had seen the terrible reviews before giving it to our pets. Now the kids pet is gone, and the product is still being sold.
Questions & Answers
They vet gave my 7 month old puppy Comfortis 2 weeks ago. We have sprayed our yard and previously tried Saresto collar and put k9advantix on before the vet said to try an oral meds. We still see some fleas. What else can I do?
I have the smaller dog comfortis for our small dog can you use 2 of these tablets to add up to the correct weight for the larger dog? Thanks
