Administer COMFORTIS with food for maximum effectiveness. COMFORTIS® is a chewable tablet that can be consumed when offered by the owner just prior to or after feeding. Alternatively, COMFORTIS® may be offered in food or administered like other tablet medications. COMFORTIS® should be administered at monthly intervals.
If vomiting occurs within an hour of administration, redose with another full dose. If a dose is missed, administer COMFORTIS® with food and resume a monthly dosing schedule. Treatment with COMFORTIS® may begin at any time of the year, preferably starting one month before fleas become active and continuing monthly through the end of flea season. In areas where fleas are common year-round, monthly treatment with COMFORTIS® should continue the entire year without interruption.
To minimize the likelihood of flea reinfestation, it is important to treat all animals within a household with an approved flea protection product.
