Research by Elanco Companion Animal Health reveals that its Comfortis chewable tablet for dogs and cats is the first choice for flea control for almost 90% of leading European dermatologists.
The research, conducted among 50 key opinion leaders at the 2013 ESVD-ECVD European Conference
(the 26th annual event held jointly by the European Society of Veterinary Dermatology and the European College of Veterinary Dermatology), questioned attitudes on flea control and Comfortis, an oral tablet that starts killing fleas in 30 minutes and remains effective for a full month.
Elanco found that 71% of dermatologists consider Comfortis their first choice
when recommending flea control and 86% choose Comfortis for pruritic animals.
Further questioning revealed that it’s not just because Comfortis is an oral product (only 61% said an oral would make a flea product their first choice), but the combination of its unique fast action and monthly oral treatment that make Comfortis so popular.
Anna Jackson, national veterinary manager at Elanco Companion Animal Health, said: “It’s fantastic to receive such strong endorsements from some of the leading dermatologists in Europe and this underlines the benefits of using Comfortis for flea control.”
