Q. Our Female Dog is Pregnant and is Due in 5 days time.. She is also due for her Comfortis Tablet Today.. Is it OK to give her the Tablet??

A. There is very little information about using comfortis during pregnancy, but from one study there was more incidence of abortions using it,

I would probably advise not to use it, wait until the puppies are not lactating anymore.
