Frontline vs Comfortis
A little over a year ago I noticed that my Frontline Plus was no longer taking care of the Hooligans fleas. My vet recommended Comfortis which worked very well.
I've noticed that other people had my problems with Frontline while others found it still worked. Recently someone posted something about Frontline which got me to thinking. Could a bad batch of Frontline have gotten into the distribution system. I purchased the Frontline that wasn't working from my vet. But I'd ordered some from Australia before this but never used it because I was using Comfortis (I used the rest of the Frpntline Plus I got at the vet's office last year when I found some ticks).
Fleas are bad this year for some reason considering we had such a bitter cold winter. Anyway, I decided to put Frontline Plus on the Hooligans this month and see what happens (I can always use Comfortis as a back up if it doesn't work). I'm shocked, but so far the Hooligans have pretty much stopped itching. They're still doing some itching but it comes in spurts, like a batch of fleas must have hatched or something.
Has anyone else who is now using Comfortis gone back to Frontline and had it work?
