Advantages: chewable tablet that dogs like to take... starts killing fleas within 30 minutes and kills 100% within 4 hrs... Comfortis kills fleas before they lay eggs and It is supose to kill newly hatch eggs before they go through their 3 wk life cycle. (All this info is on the insert in the pkg of pills.) Now, I did see a scattered 3 or 4 fleas after the first month of use but after the second month of use ... no fleas. Best of all COMFORTIS does not wash away when you give multiple baths within a month...
Comfortis Monthly Flea Control For Dogs - Discount Pet Medicines
Comfortis flea control contains the ingredient, Spinosad. We live in the Texas countryside and Frontline has become effective for only about 5 days. This Comfortis (spinosad) has been a miracle and not one side effect on any of my dogs. I've heard they're testing with cats at present, my poor cats are miserable with scratching and my dogs are now carefree and happy.

I really appreciate the posts!
I live in Hawaii and my dog Sparkles is allergic to fleas and has terrible pruritis. The only natural remedy so far has been Cedarcide, but it is too temporary... meaning, within hrs, fleas return... it has calmed the pruritis and mange better than any other but definitely the cedarcide is not a strong repellent.
Even though I DO NOT TRUST these chemical poisons,
I will give Comfortis a try... I will not allow my little Sparkles to suffer indefinitely.

Comfortis is an affordable and easy solution to keep dogs flea-free. It is a flavored, chewable tablet given to dogs to eliminate and prevent fleas. Puppies — 14 weeks or older — and dogs are allowed to take Comfortis. The dosage depends on the dog’s weight, so it is important for pet owners to read the product label and instructions. Comfortis last for 30 days and the tablet should be administered monthly to avoid fleas from coming back.An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure and this philosophy is also true for fleas. Comfortis can be taken at any time of the year, but it is best to use it a month before flea season. In warmer areas or climates, Comfortis must be administered year-round. It can be taken with or without food. For maximum results, dogs must eat a meal before taking a tablet.
