Hi all

Comfortis recently became available in Australia (a few months back) and at the time, I asked our vet what he thought about the product. Because it was brand spanking new, he said let me research a little, and ask me again next time.

So I took Harley in today as he has an ear infection, poor sweet boy, and I asked the vets business partner about it (our Holistic vet, and his business partner are my 2 fave vets at the practice) ... so he said he LOVES it, said its an excellent product, so I got some.

Now, I currently have a bee in my bonnet about how much we in Australia pay for goods, especially seeing as our Dollar is so very strong at the moment, and I was curious as to what you would typically pay in the US for Comfortis (6 pack).

I paid $70.75 for Dakota, and $78.90 for Harley - because he is in the next weight range. So that works out just under $25 / month to treat both. Seems crazy expensive to me. Dont get me wrong, they are both worth every penny, but still, its a LOT of money!!

Am I being ripped off, yet again??

ETA: I dont think my vet is ripping me off - he gave me a 50% discount on the consult today, the vet is very good!

For a 6 month supply (6 pills) of the 5-10lb comfortis, it is anywhere between $70 and $80 a box around here.
Oh, ok, thanks, that makes me feel better! :)

My pack is in kilo's & I couldnt be bothered doing the conversion - but Im pretty sure what I got for Dakota is the 5 - 10lb range. (2.3 - 4.5 kg)

I give my sheltie confortis for the 26-50 lb range and it costs me 17.00 a month!

ETA~ I just came across this link has a handy webchart for comparison. I think I am going to get everyone on revolution- which the cats and Delilah are already on, but for Macie, since she is outside more than anyone. http://www.bestpricepets.com/categories/Dog-Supplies/Heartworm-Prevention/
