A single dose of Capstar should kill the adult fleas on your pet. If your pet gets re-infested with fleas, you can safely give another dose as often as once per day please refer to the package insert for complete information.
To give Capstar Tablets, place the pill directly in your petís mouth or hide it in food. If you hide the pill in food, watch closely to make sure your pet swallows the pill. If you are not sure that your pet swallowed the pill, it is safe to give a second pill.
Treat all infested pets in the household. Fleas can reproduce on untreated pets and allow infestations to persist.
- Capstar can be used with lufenuron to provide a Flea Management system. The two products, when used together, kill adult fleas and prevent flea eggs from hatching.
- Capstar kills adult fleas that cause flea allergy dermatitis (FAD).

It kills fleas within a few hours of treatment, and the pill is so small, it's easy to get my cat to take.
Of course I wish it lasted longer, but it's so quick and effective, I love it!
In Florida even though my cats do not go outdoors they do go onto a screened porch and some fleas can get in. Capstar has helped me to control fleas in the constant heat and humidity of south central Florida. I use it every two weeks.
I am in a cat rescue with TNR so immediate flea treatment is necessary.
Entirely Pets had the best price (this is an expensive product no matter where you go) and fast shipping.
The Capstar can be used on dogs and cats (we have both) and it worked just as fast as the package said (within 30 minutes).
This product is a comfort for our dog and for us as well.
