  • Dog owners who dislike mess and inconvenience
  • Households with children or other pets

  • Dogs with dermatological (skin) conditions requiring topical therapy

Important Safety Information

Comfortis™ Plus can be administered to puppies from 8 weeks of age. Puppies less than 14 weeks of age may experience an increased rate of vomiting. Seek veterinary advice regarding the use of Comfortis™ Plus in pregnant and lactating females, and in dogs with pre-existing epilepsy.

The safe use of Comfortis™ Plus in breeding males has not been evaluated.

Concurrent use of Comfortis™ Plus with high extra-label doses of ivermectin for parasitic mange or demodicosis may be associated with an increased risk of developing neurological signs typically associated with ivermectin toxicity. Comfortis™ Plus should not be administered concurrently with extra-label high doses of macrocyclic lactones.

The use of Comfortis™ Plus in dogs suffering from microfilaremia is not recommended. On rare occasions, transient shock-like (hypersensitivity) reactions have been observed in heartworm positive animals carrying a high number of microfilariae at the time of the first treatment with milbemycin oxime. Dogs with an existing adult D. immitis heartworm infection should be treated with an adulticide prior to commencement of Comfortis™ Plus.

The following adverse events have been recorded following administration of spinosad and milbemycin oxime together: vomiting, pruritis, lethargy and diarrhoea.
