When can I start giving Comfortis to my pet?
Comfortis treatment can be given any time of the year. Best practice is to start a month before the flea season and then continue until the end of flea season. In heavily infested areas, continue the treatment for an entire year without interrupting the monthly dosage. If you have more than one pet then treat all of them with relevant flea treatments. This will rule out chances of infestations.
Are there any vet considerations before starting Comfortis chewable tablets?
You must consult your vet to check the sensitivity of your pet towards any of the ingredients of the tablet. This will help in preventing any adverse reactions. Vet advice is a must before starting any pet treatment. Ask for his advice if you are planning to breed your pet. Also, confirm the usage of tablets if your pet has a history of epilepsy or seizures.
What is the best way to administer Comfortis?
Being an oral tablet, it is best to give comfortis with food. You can give it after food or along with it. If possible then repeat every month on the same date. If vomiting occurs within one hour of administration then re-dose with another full tablet.
On missing a dose, start the tablets from the day when you remember. Administer it with the meal and resume the monthly schedule from there onwards. In case of overdose, consult a vet immediately.
What are the side effects of Comfortis?
Although side effects are very rare, they might occur to hypersensitive pets. Vomiting is a common side effect but has a transient effect with no need of symptomatic treatment. Apart from that lethargy, diarrhea, increased thirst, excessive salivation, skin inflammation, cough and hyperactivity are other side effects. Consult your vet if any of these or other abnormal behavior is observed.
Can I club Comfortis with other treatments?
Not without the advice of your vet.
