New flea control product: Comfortis

Fleas are a major problem all year round in Brisbane. Your pet may be exposed to these blood-sucking parasites anywhere: in your own backyard, when you are on walks or even in your own home.

Each female flea can produce 40 to 50 eggs a day, up to 2000 in their lifetime. Even a few fleas can turn into a major infestation in a matter of days. Comfortis® is the first FDA-approved, chewable, beef-flavored tablet that kills fleas and prevents flea infestations on dogs for a full month.

It starts killing fleas within 30 minutes, before they can even lay eggs. Bathing your dog does not reduce its efficacy, as it is an oral product which does not rely on sticking to the hair. It is extremely safe for your dog and is actually made from a plant fungus, unlike many other flea control products which are chemical pesticides. Pop into the surgery for more information on this revolutionary new product.
