    I like that's it easy to give and I haven't read or heard about serious side effects. But I'm still concerned about giving it again since it's a fairly new product.
    I've never even heard of the drug. I work in a pharmacy that sells pet meds, and I've not heard of it.

    Yeah, that's why I asked you.

    I got it from a vet we don't usually use when I thought Wellie had fleas. She said it's a great product and I do like it.. but again, not sure if I should give it again. Especially since it's winter here and they
    don't really need a flea medication now that it's cold.

    I would Google it. Read as many articles you can about it. Find out what the active ingredient does. I wouldn't go to the pet med site, instead I would go to other sites that don't depend on the sales of the drug for their business.

    The active ingredient sounds like it works the same way spinosad does, by attacking the nervous system, but I don't believe they're in the same drug class.

    There's not a ton of info. on it since it's been on the market for a short time. But like I said, everything I've read says no serious side effects in any of the trials. Most common thing is vomiting.

    Hopefully this is not demodex. Diego had demodex as well and the vet suggested ivermectin and using a medicated shampoo that opens pores so the mites can come out faster. It has worked great. His rash cleared up in a month and he has all his hair again. He still on the ivermectin because they did find 1 mite when they did the scrap. However, that is better than the loads they found when I initially brang him in.

    I won't give my dogs comfortis either. Especially after reading reading many EB have supposedly died after taking it. Per my vet, we dont know if the bullys that died had underlying problems but that is just a risk I don't want to take.

    *update
    we went to the vet today and got a skin scraping and it was negative for mites. The vet believes it is allergy related. I think I am eventually going to have to get allergy test done to narrow down the triggers.

    Unfortunately these topicals for demodex can bring on allergies,buy some colloidal silver and use on the spots,buy some quercetin ( natural antihistamine) ,work on the immune system giving primrose oil and borage oil ,I'd also recomend raw feeding
