I will never use this drug again. My 7 year old Chihuahua almost died from it. He started foaming at the mouth, went into a seizure like state, stiff as a board. I thought he was dead. It took a good 10 minutes before he could try and sit up. The Vet did bloodwork on him but refused to allow me to pay for the visit. He expects the drug company to pick up the bill. It was a horrible experience, one I will not revisit. Beware people.

I would never give my dogs a oral pill for fleas. Nope, nope, nope.

We have been giving both of our jack russels Confortis for 2 years now and they have had no ill effects. It keeps the fleas off. Maybe the dogs who become ill are just allergic to something in the pill. Our dogs are outside most of the day and also enjoy one day a week at the dog daycare, Tails are waggin, and never come home
with an infestation. No fleas in our carpet either. If they work and your dog suffers no ill effects, good. If they have problems with it then don't give it to them. We cannot use the sprays as one of our jacks gets a terrible skin rash. We will continue to use Confortis.
