Recommended for instant flea problems
Excellent for short term flea control in addition to topical applications
24 Hours Only
This stuff is great for 24 hours only. It is temporary and you have to do something else.
by Barbara McCormack05/15/2010
I have used this product every time I see a flea or two on my dogs. It kills the fleas in a few hours and if I need to use more I can. It is a safe product with no side effects. I highly recommend Capstar.
Capstar for Cats
from Holiday, FL03/21/2012
A very easy product to give to a cat. The tablet/pill is so small that it fits into a tiny bit of cat treat or pill pocket. It is also easy to bury in canned food. Seems to knock out adult fleas for a good while, until the next batch hatch.
Immediate Flea Killer!!!
This product will kill all fleas within 24 hours. My dogs and I stayed with a friend for a long weekend and they came home infested with fleas. One treatment of Capstar killed all their fleas.
It works well if you can get that tiny pill in the cat without them slinging it out. It took 5 tries and wrapping the cat in a towel. I still got scratched up.
My cat was experiencing some fleas and the certain flea medication I was using wasn't effective. So a friend mentioned CAPSTAR to give my cat a fresh start before I started him on a new topical flea medicine. I gave him a CAPSTAR, a bath and then in a couple of hours when I brushed him, the fleas were coming right off, dead, or incredibly lethargic....after applying a new medicine, he's been flea free ever since. Highly recommend CAPSTAR.
from Toledo, OH01/10/2012
these little pills are the greatest. I have a small dog and the relief he gets after just a short time is amazing. he is pest free in a matter of minutes.
Workes quickly. Does not bother pets. Very effective. Usually only one dose needed.
from Covina, Ca10/24/2011
I read many reviews on other websites about Capstar and the majority seemed favorable, so I decided to give it a try. THIS PRODUCT WORKS! I have an 8 wk. old Shep-lab mix with long hair; Moose was scratching, scratching, scratching constantly due to fleas (and he had a severe case). So bad, in fact, that he has sores on his back and neck. I bought the Capstar and gave him one dose. Within an hour, the fleas were falling off and he spent an itch free night. I gave him a second dose the next day; we were going to the Vet and I wanted him to be as flea free as possible, as they were going to give him a flea spray treatment. I realize that this product works best in conjunction with another flea program, so I am going to order "Program" from the makers of Capstar since their product lived up to its claim. I would rather give my pup an oral flea med than a topical, and Program also has received high marks.
Great Flea Killer at a Great Price
from Seminole, FL04/06/2012
I happened to need this at a time when Entirely Pets had run a sale. It was a great price and it worked wonders on my cats.
It works as advertised....makes my cat flea free for days.
Great Quick Fix
from Mount Vernon, NY10/23/2012
It actually did start working within an hour. I noticed my 2 cats were not scratching as much & got relief a few hours more.
The only problem is the 1 pill dose doesn't last long - maybe 24 hours so if you have an infestation, you'll need to have Frontline or some other product to rid fleas.
Best Vet Suggestion EVER!
from Dover, DE01/07/2010
I have 3 DSH who eat, sleep and play together - in other words, one gets fleas, they ALL get fleas. I have never seen an infestation like they had last year, caled the vet and she told me about this product. Even though the box says 4 hours, she said take them OUTSIDE and give it to them because pills can work in as soon as 20 MINUTES!! She was abolutely right. The fleas were jumping off and dying so quickly that they were falling off the cats. That was the first night in two weeks that my babies slept through the night without scratching, crying or rubbing on the sisal scratchie. PURE BLISS for them AND for me. DEFINITELY follow up with a regular treatment, a good brushing (so they don't eat the dead fleas off of each other) and be sure to wash ALL of their bedding, towels, and SPRAY YOUR OWN FURNITURE! I used this again this year with the same fantastic results and will continue to use it every coming year - BUY IY BUY IT BUY IT!!!!
This is a good product i lobe to keep it on hand all year
Loved the Ideas of this
from Long Island, NY01/11/2012
It seems the fleas have been very agressive in our area the last couple of years. The normal dose of Frontline or anything else is not keeping them completely at bay. Being able to give it a "boost" with the capstar once a week is a life saver for everyone. I give it to the dog and the cats. I try not to put too much of anything on the older cats and this is just the thing to get rid of the pests that make it in the house to them (they are indoor cats) and everyone is happy.
No more fleas!!!
from Manchester, Michigan01/25/2011
We have 3 dogs and 2 cats and last summer they became infested with fleas terribly because Mr. Boo, the 18 year old kitty, would continually bring them inside. So, we heard about a "pill" that would rid pets of all fleas within 4 hours! Amazing!! We had to purchase 3 different kinds of Capstar since they go by the weight of the animal. We have 1 Rottweiler, 1 Pit Bull, 1 tiny Yorkie and 2 cats weighing less than 25lbs. This was amazing!!! No more fleas and no more infestation!!! Yeah!!! We will definitely purchase this product again in the spring and summer of 2011!!!
Capstar is a very good product. It works very quickly to get rid of the flea's. However if your pet goes outside, they can pick up more flea's right a way. I use Capstar between using the monthly advantage application on my three cats. I would recommend it as a quick fix until you can use the monthly flea control.
This product is a good help to get control of fleas and work towards eliminating them. You still need to use a monthly flea prevention along with it because this dose only works for 24 hours, but it helps with an animal that is infested with fleas initially ex. a stray you bring in etc. If used regularly it breaks the flea cycle. It works almost immediately after the pill is given and is very effective at eradicating the animal of live fleas.
Only killed some of the fleas
The product only killed some of the fleas. It is neat to watch the fleas begin to die and immerge from the layers of fur, but the product did not kill ALL of the fleas. I was still finding adult fleas on the pets, even after administering the product 3 times.
Great AND 6-pill pack $20 cheaper than Petco!!
Works great within an hour, but expensive to keep using every 24 hours since Revolution does not seem to work *at all* on my kitty after 3 months (100 percent indoor). Capstar Insert states to follow-up with "lufenuron.. the two products when used together kill adult fleas and prevent flea eggs from hatching" so I will be looking for a spot application of a product with this ingredient. I cannot believe I spent $44 at Petco this week for this only to find it nearly half at price here!
Works right away!
from Bronx, NY01/22/2012
Great product and it does work as quickly as given. Can't beat it!
worked for my three!
this is my first time ordering from this site..and after searching several, this was the most economical for the products I needed! I was pelased with the selection, price altho the delivery time was a bit slow...But the products worked and I will order from this site again!
by G SMITH06/04/2009
THIS WORKS GREAT AND IS ALOT LESS STRESSFU TO ANIMAL AND OWNER
Best flea removal
Got rid of the fleas in no time. My apartment wasn't flea infested and I still haven't seen any fleas come back almost a month later and I have not used any other treatment.
by Diana K06/18/2009
In April we moved into a house with our 8 cats, all of which have never had fleas. However, our new house did!! Our cats were miserable. We sprayed the house and ordered the Capstar, and within one day of the Capstar treatment, the cats were relaxed. We haven't had any fleas in the house since April. Great product. Very safe!
Product worked as advertised!! I will purchase again.
Fantastic for killing fleas right now!
These little pills are exactly what your groomer uses if you bring in a flea covered dog to be groomed. You give them the pill, put them in a crate. wait 30 minutes and then give them a bath. The capstar kills all the fleas on the dog within about 30 minutes of ingestion. Then you bath the dead fleas off. VOILA clean comfortable dog. The thing to remember is that they get rid of fleas on the dog right now but they don't give flea protection so you can't put the dog right back in the same backyard where he got fleas in the first place. Treat the yard, treat the dog at the same time.
Saved my teacup yorkie pup
by Gayle Herron09/24/2008
This year has been the worst flea problem in the Ozarks anyone can remember. Even the indoor pet, like my little teacup Yorkie (less than one and half pounds) that never go outside, who live in home with wood floors and no other pets, it has been HORRIBLE. Izzy would be dead if it had not been for Capstar, twice, given by her vet. The fleas, what seemed like hundreds if not thousands, just fell off her within minutes of taking the Capstar. No shampooing, no collar, no spray, nothing could get rid of them - but Capstar did. I HIGHLY recommend EVERY pet owner have this on hand, use it at least once a month if you're having a flea problem - it will keep your pet healthy and alive.
bye bye fleas
by amber lynn09/11/2008
love it :) fleas just die...
I love this stuff... I've tried everything else and nothing worked... Someone told me of capstar and I tried it and now it is the only thing I'll use... I have two cats and one of them is allergic to flea's, he had sores all over his neck and parts of his body. Since I've been using capstar his sore have all gone away.
Prescribed by Vet
Works fantastic - first prescribed by Vet at 6 times the price per pill. Furry friend can not tolerate the topical flea products and this is wonderful. Treat only when he goes outside and so far keeps him flea free.
Free from Fleas, at last
from Lake Orion, MI02/07/2012
I have been fighting fleas on my cats for nearly a year because my vet didn't tell me about the flea life cycle and that you need to treat all pets for 3 to 6 months to get rid of all stages. I just discovered Capstar and for the first time in ages, NOBODY has ANY fleas. I will have to keep checking for them daily and may need to treat several times but within 24 hours there were no fleas and no flea dirt. The tablets are tiny and appear to be tasteless as I was able to crush them up and mix them with food. This is a great product to use along with Frontline and Siphitrol. SInce it is a poison, I wouldn't want to give it more often than necessary.
Worth the $$
I first heard of this when I took my dog in to get her spade. The vet uses it on all dogs when they are brought in to kill fleas. I often take my dogs to my mother and step-father's farm and they catch fleas there as well as in the woods surrounding my house on three sides. I use Capstar occasionally (especially after farm visits) with Frontline monthly and the combination has cured my flea problems.
Dependable product for fleas
Capstar has been my number one choice when it comes to big or small flea infestations on my cats. I have been using it for 4+ years with no ill side effects after use so it makes me feel safe with the product on my precious little ones. Everyone with cats or dogs should have this on hand at all times.
by Anna G03/11/2008
This stuff is awesome. I gave it to my dog and cat and with a very short time they quit scratching and were able to rest.
Capstar worked just as promised - the fleas were dropping off within hours~! Wonderful product!
This works perfect combined with Frontline Plus for Cats or Dogs... one dose of Capstar then add the Frontline Plus will keep your pet flee free
Practically a Miracle
We have 5 cats and we moved into a house that had fleas and we didn't know it! That was three years ago and we have fought them ever since. I have spent tons of money on sprays, bombs, and monthly treatments. Not to mention all the trauma to my arms from putting my babies in the bath tub! I combined this with Triforce one week ago and my pets are FLEA FREE! This product has broken the cycle. Extra thanks to Entirely Pets for saving me another trip to my vet's office.
Will never shop at Entirely Pets again!
from Napa, CA08/08/2012
I was sent capstar in a package that looked like it was to be sold in another country. When I contacted EP I was told to contact a supervisor. I was hung up on twice while put on hold. The supervisor was not friendly and did not work with me. I was just told no when I asked for a replacement. I hope you have better luck.
by debra j mayo03/21/2008
excellent product. it works wonderful. my dogs are allrgic to fleas and with this and frontline they have no fleas. thank goodness cause they break out in hug whelps and i have not had any more problems since using capstar.
capstar blue for dogs or cats
I used this product on both my cat and dogs with no adverse effects and love it. I recommended to a friend and will be ordering again.
by Carol Saprs02/12/2008
This works like magic. I'm convinced as my dog was flee free in one day. Don't forget to give your dog a flee bath to rid her of the eggs that might have been left behind.
by Lynda W.
This product is awesome! I highly recommend this for your pet that is highly infested with fleas. Starts killing the fleas within 1/2 hour! You will start to see lots of dead fleas where your pet is laying. This kills fleas fast. But after killing the current fleas, follow up with Frontline, etc. that will continue to kill the fleas for 30 days. Capstar does NOT continue to kill the fleas. But it is the best thing to kill off a mass infestation immediately. Also I don't recommend hiding the pill in your pets food, as you really want to make sure they ate the pill.
I have used this product before and it works great! It killed the fleas on our cats within a half hour. It worked wonders on our cat that is allergic to the flea bites. Her fur came back where she had been scratching and biting. I am now buying it to keep on hand and to give some to my daughter who just found a stray.
from St Petersburg, Florida10/26/2011
I used this in conjuction with Program. Once program started working I keep it around in case a stray flea happens upon my dogs. Within in an hour dead fleas.
Recommended by vet. It kills all living fleas on the cats within 30 minutes. Way too expensive at the vet. Great product.
Capstar gives immediate relief to dogs that have fleas. I am a volunteer with a Bulldog rescue group....Capstar has been a great product for us.
from Port Richey, FL02/21/2013
As promised, it really kills fleas in a few hours, preventing infestation of furniture and rugs if you catch flea problem quickly. Use with other flea prevention, since it does not kill eggs Great for emergency treatment.
Starts working immediately to kill fleas

from So. California06/28/2012
I gave Capstar to both of my cats and the product began working right away. Highly recommend this product!
Capstar Blue for Dogs or Cats
I received this product very quickly and it worked in just a few hours! It is a very quick way to get a flea problem under control.
As a cat rescue volunteer, this is a great product. It kills the fleas quickly and you can follow up with one of the monthly topicals a few days later. No more worries of my other pets getting fleas when bringing in a new rescue animal and their fleas too.
Best Decision I Made
from Mansfield, OH12/02/2011
This product was passed on to me by a friend. She said that it was the greatest item that she has purchased. In disbelieve I purchased and tried it and it was unbelievable. I just wish it lasted two weeks instead of 8 hours. But I would recommend it to anyone in a heartbeat. It is as good as it says it is.
All Sizes and Ages of cats
Despite the wide range in weight and age between our cats it gives them all the same great results, with no side effects.
Esp. happy with how well it works for our two older cats age 12, and age 14 adapting to thier special elderly needs.
CAPSTAR is the best---period!
from San Francisco, CA11/07/2012
For some reason-frontline, advantage-etc does/did not work on my poms (My current one and one has passed away)-I guess their hair is/was so thick that product cannot reach their skin. I was going crazy seeing my current pom being attacked by fleas and $pending tons of money on Frontline, etc with no results--except an empty wallet! I went to ENTIRELY PETS website to see what other dog owners were using and almost all of them had only wonderful things to say about CAPSTAR. I tried it-gave a tablet each to both my dogs w/ good old peanut butter--and the fleas fell off! I used to use it along with PROGRAM and it worked well-lately PROGRAM has been hard to buy for some reason but am still using CAPSTAR-it is still working w/o the Program! Thanks Capstar from me and esp. from my pom.
Best flea product
by sheva's mom07/11/2012
I have been using Capstar for a few years on both my cats and dog. It is the best product I have found to kill the fleas with out harming my pets. I highly recommend it.
As expected, it kills fleas quickly. Whenever my cat would get up from lying down, there would be a few dead or dying fleas. They return quickly, but this knocks them out for a day. EntirelyPets delivered quickly.
No more fleas
from Orlando Fl04/23/2011
Wonderful product!!!, combine with a regular flea control treatment. It kills adult fleas in few hours and Tiki and Tanner are happy again,
from Lakeland, FL12/20/2011
I do not have a serious flea problem and this is a much less expensive method of flea control for me. I have also given Capstar to friends and family who do have serious flea problems and it helped them tremendously, as a first step, to get their flea problems under control. Works fast, is effective, just don't expect it to last a whole month.
Capstar is not advertised like the monthly flea treatments, but it is very useful to keep on hand in our climate where it doesn't get cold enough in the winter to kill the fleas that live outside. Veterinarians charge $10 for a single Capstar treatment. It is much less expensive from Entirely Pets. If your pet gets a severe flea infestation, give it Capstar, and then give a monthly treatment after a few hours when Capstar has killed the current fleas. It is also useful if your pet picks up fleas despite having its monthly treatment.
from Ft. Pierce ,Fl06/20/2012
Great for my cat since he has allergic reactions to topical flea treatments.Always have both sizes on hand.
Got a sample from my vet. Loved the immediate elimination of fleas on my dogs. The low price was an extra bonus.
Great Products at a Great Price
from Holiday, FL04/06/2013
This is my second purchase with Entirely Pets. I purchased Lean Treats via Amazon. I was extremely satisfied with the purchase, I chose to go directly to Entirely Pets website for my next purchase for Capstar. Both products were exactly as described, the Lean treats were very fresh, and I am very pleased with my purchases. I will continue to shop with Entirely Pets because I can trust the quality of the products and great prices offered.
Most Effective Product
from Cleveland, OH10/22/2012
I've used Capstar before and it's wonderful! It's easy to give to your pet; it's just a pill. And, within ten minutes it starts to work. Only down side is that you have to monitor your pet to kind of catch the fleas as they jump off and die. But whats the difference between that and combing the dead ones out when you give them their flea medicine? I use this on top of the flea medicine, because I know that after a Capstar, my pet has absolutely no fleas.
Excellent product. It did everything it was supposed to do.
They drop like...fleas
from Wisconsin, USA10/05/2011
We used this product as the first step to curing the flea infestation in 3 cats. They were given the capstar first, and we sequestered them into the bathroom to make sure they would not have an adverse reaction. After about 15 minutes, fleas would drop off, do this crazy circling thing dragging their hind ends on the floor and die. Yay! The next day we treated the cats with frontline, and the floors with some flea powder. I would recommend it.
IT WAS GREAT
THIS WORKED GREAT,BUT I SHOULD OF GOT THE FRONTINE THE SAME TIME.FOR 24 HOURS I WAS OUT FLEAS.THANK YOU BARB
Well worth the money!
This product works great in conjunction with another flea product like Frontline or Advantage, especially during the summer months when fleas are at their worst.
I have been using it for several years now. I only have to use one pill a month. I give it to my cats the day before I give them the other flea product.
Great Flea Killer
I have multiple cats and none have had any adverse reaction to this product. They readily eat their food with the Capstar tablet pulverized and mixed into the food. Seems to work very well!
will not buy again
from sping lake NC10/29/2011
I found that this product didn't do what the product said it would.I don't think I would purchase this product again.I wouldn't reccomend this to anyone.
I am not satisfied at all
very good product
I have had a horrible season for fleas this past few months, this product helped so much to kill the fleas on the dogs and cats at that time. I continue to use the pills when they start itching. Fleas are affected very quickly
Instant and the most effective
Very handy for my cats, works fast and easy to swallow for cats!
Really worked within hours
by Drama Dona
from Mt Vernon, NY04/24/2012
My 2 kitty kids were suffering terribly with a flea infestation in our new home. They were scratching every minute even after trying every holistic & store bought remedy. I gave them a Capstar pill after tearing open the package, went out for a few hours & when I returned they were finally relieved and looked it. As the packaging says, they still will scratch as the fleas die but they actually did die!
I am so grateful & Capstar is worth every penny.
I have been fighting the flea battle on my 8 week old mini dachshund for weeks.Spraying the kennel and bathing every other day.Most products I found could not be used on these 3 pound pups.This product truly works.I bathed the pups 4 hours after treatment and found very few fleas and all were dead.
Most favorite product EVER!
from New Orleans05/26/2013
It's easy for fleas to get out of contol & make life miserable before we even know whats happening. Use this & in 30 minutes the fleas fall off dead. Then apply your favorite flea treatment. You start with a clean slate - so to speak - & get it under control quickly. No side effects!
My cat was a nervous wreck from the fleas and he was pulling out chunks of his hair. Within a half hour of eating this pill mixed in his food, he was calm and slept great all day....very relaxed.
BEST QUALITY AND PRIC3E
HARD TO BEAT QUALITY AND PRICE, HAVE SHOPPED EXTENSIVELY, LOCALLY, AND
ORDER ONLINE AT PETMEDS. NEVER A PROBLEM AND CAN REVIEW OR DISPUTE ORDER IF NECESSARY. GOOD SERVICE.
from Fort Worth, Texas04/04/2012
Very good and fast acting product, just wish it lasted longer. I will continue using it. Excellent product.
by Seven Black Cats
from Mount Pleasant, SC10/04/2011
Before treating seven feral cats with Program Flea Control, I had to rid the cats of their large flea infestation. I broke up Capstar tablets in their food. This is a very safe product to use and it did exactly what it claimed it would do. A great addition to all other flea control products.
I like the tablets better than the drops to put on the neck, it works faster and kils the fleas the nly problem I have found is that it doesn't kill ticks so by recoemendation from the Vet I now use a tick collar so my dog is completely covered. As far as the service from Entirely Pets my order was completed in a timely mannor, I would recommend them to anyone
I used it between using the once a month flea med. It does work. I use it on my two cats.
It also works for me if I happen to run short on once a month flea medicine.
Best purchase ever
from Miami, FL01/17/2013
This product works within minutes. I put the pills in their soft food and make sure that they swallow them. It is somewhat pricey so you have to shop around to save money. I would recommend this wholeheartedly.
Best thing out there without RX
from Arlington, Tx08/03/2010
I only saw a couple of fleas but when you see one there are more that are hidding. The doggies were biting and within 3 days NO MORE BITING.. best thing that I've bought. The only drawback that I can see is that it's a little expensive with 4 animals and I would recom. you give it to them weekly with baths and flea collars
by Gwen's mom02/01/2013
This product was delivered quickly and worked better than I hoped it would. Very pleased.
Awesomely fast results
With 5 indoor cats and no pilling skills, this was so easy to break up into their favorite tuna fish and the fleas were gone! I did use a monthly product also.
Awesome product. We have used spot-on treatments for years but this product, used with the spot-on, is the only product that has made fleas disappear completely in our household.
My cats are inside cats and have never had fleas...so when I came home from a vacation to find my house infested and my cats going crazy I started to spray the house down with flea sprays. I bought the medicine to put on there necks....didn't help much...I got them flea collars...didn't help....then I ordered the Capstar. within a few hours of giving them the pill, i had dead fleas flying on the floor, I could not believe now many fleas came off the cats. I still have continued spraying the house and after 8 weeks I finally have them gone. I don't think I would have been successful had I not bought this product to get them off my cats first.
Great Product and Great Price
from Dover, DE11/03/2011
Works beautifully and no need to run to vet
We brought in 3 stray kittens that were absolutely infested with fleas! Capstan first, flea bath a few hours later to get rid of carcasses and eggs did the trick! Loved it!
from unadilla ny11/11/2011
We foung the pills worked good, but will need to order more at the beginning of the flea season
from poplar bluff mo11/16/2011
This is the best quick fix for flea infestations. It works better than dips and shampoos.Kills the fleas dead.........
Only thing that worked!
I tried everything to get rid of the fleas on my two cats. I had flea collars on them, put spot treatment on them and even gave them flea baths. None of this worked. I read about capstar while searching for ways to get rid of the fleas. I ordered it and gave it to them as soon as it came. It was kind of disgusting to see dead fleas falling of the cats but it was a relief to know i found something that finally worked.
Very good purchase
from Jacksonville, FL04/05/2012
A lifesaving product. I run a small rescue and when I get a dog with fleas I can give them a capstar and the fleas are gone in a few hours.
I always keep capstar in stock because I don't want an infestation of fleas in my house or yard.
i give Capstar to all my dogs, it works great !
i highly recommend this product, my dogs are much more relax. Thanks Entirely pets for all you great products, i have being a customer for 8 years!
