We are now carrying Comfortis, a monthly tablet that kills fleas. It is a tablet for dogs and cats that starts killing the fleas on your pet within 30 minutes and reaches full effect within 4 hours. It is best given with food. This is a prescription product, so please call us if you are interested in getting a dose for your pet.
The Comfortis website has great information pages that explain the life cycle of a flea as well as the best methods for killing the fleas in your home. If you have an infestation and you're only treating your pet, you're only treating one out of four life cycles of the flea population in your house! A link to the Comfortis website is below...
