Both Comfortis and Panoramis have many similarities but also have their major differences when it comes to which types of parasites they protect your dog from. They are both manufactured by Elanco, a company which produces products which help to enhance the lives of pets.
Comfortis contains Spinosad (Saccharopolyspora spinosa or S. spinosa), a relatively new antiparasitics known as spinosyns, which are derived from a naturally-occurring soil microbe. It is highly effective against fleas and flea allergy dermatitis in canines because it works by attacking the nervous system of insects, causing rapid death of adult fleas. Comfortis for dogs will start killing fleas within 30 minutes. Other flea control products require you to squeeze a pippete containing fluid over the back of your pet which may wash off and require you to isolate your pet. You won’t have these issues with Comfortis since it is an orally administered beef flavoured tablet which dogs love.

Panoramis is the Australian version of flea and heartworm control whereas the same product is also known as Trifexis in the United States. This product also contains Spinosad for treatment of fleas but also contains an ingredient called Milbemycin Oxime which interferes with nerve transmission of invertebrates helping to protect against heartworm, roundworm, hookworm and whipworm at the same time. Panoramis also won’t rub or wash off because it also is a tasty chewable tablet.

If your just require an effective product against fleas then I would recommend Comfortis but if you wish to protect your dog against fleas, flea allergy dermatitis, heartworm, roundworm, hookworm and whipworm then Panoramis (Trifexis) is the way to go.
