Comfortis: New dual dog and cat branded packaging


AUS_Comf_LeftF_groupWith more than 13 million doses dispensed since launching in 2009, Comfortis® has earned the trust of veterinarians throughout Australia and New Zealand and it’s not hard to see why.

Studies show that Comfortis starts to kill fleas within 30 minutes in dogs and cats and is 100% and >95% effective in 4 hours in dogs and cats respectively,2,3 providing rapid and lasting relief from fleas for a whole month.4-6

Comfortis kills fleas so quickly that it minimises the opportunity for fleas to feed and reduces the clinical severity of skin disorders including flea allergy dermatitis (FAD) and pruritus in dogs and cats.4-8

Due to its proven efficacy and speed of kill, supported by trial data2-8, and borne out by field use experience, Comfortis has earned a reputation as a trusted solution to flea problems. Pet owners trust their vet’s recommendation and, as such, it’s important that you continue to recommend a product that works first time, every time.

With dual dog and cat branded packaging about to hit the Australian marketplace, Comfortis will be convenient for pet owners trying to eliminate fleas without requiring veterinarians to stock additional lines of flea products to cover both species. Combined with the convenience of a beef flavoured chewable tablet, oral administration ensures Comfortis won’t rub or wash off over the summer months.

Elanco, the manufacturers of Comfortis, understand the key role veterinarians play in assisting pet owners to help their pets live longer, healthier, higher-quality lives and we work hard to drive sales back through veterinary clinics and in turn, deliver on our mission statement; ‘Helping vets help pets live longer, healthier, higher quality lives’. Elanco lives this mission statement though the support of vet-driven charitable organisations such as Pets In The Park and veterinary-exclusive pet owner promotions designed to keep product sales in your practice. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the veterinary community for your continued support of our full range of products and services.
