The pill is either capstar, comfortis, or trifexis.
Capstar treats the fleas your dog has but wonít prevent him from getting more.
Comfortis treats and prevents fleas.
Trifexis prevents fleas and heartworm.

I have used comfortis with good results, but we did not have a bad infestation. Never saw actual fleas, just saw the dogs itching and one had flea dirt.
A friend of mine has been battling fleas all summer and comfortis didnít work for her.
