|I think Yes. Travelling home the other day, a radio ad endorsing Comfortis Tablets for flea control. Slogan, Kills fleas in 30 mins! What does that mean for a Dog? After going to their website and reading their MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) pdf I was disgusted at the information.
Kidney , Liver and Bone Marrow changes from a tablet given each month !!! Topical treatments I barely tolerate, but feeding this internally to my beloved kids?? A paragraph on their website states " The most common adverse reaction reported is vomiting.
Other adverse reactions reported in decreasing order of frequency are: depression/lethargy, decreased appetite, incoordination, diarrhea, itching, trembling, excessive salivation and seizures.
Following concomitant extra-label use of ivermectin with Comfortis, some dogs have experienced the following clinical signs: trembling/twitching, salivation/drooling, seizures, incoordination, excessive dilation of pupils, blindness and disorientation.Post-approval experience continues to support the safety of Comfortis when used concurrently with heartworm preventatives according to label directions" WHY would anyone want this for the dog? Natural Flea products that are not toxic can rid fleas.
