Description

Capstar Green an efficient, single, fast-acting dose that kills adult fleas on your dog. If your dog gets re-infested with fleas, you can safely give another dose as often as once per day. To administer Capstar tablets, place the pill directly in your pet's mouth, or hide it in food. If you choose to hide the tablet 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 administer a second pill.

We recommend you follow up Capstar treatment with a monthly flea control product such as Frontline Plus and keep Capstar on hand for the times when there is a visible flea re-infestation.

Staple in My Vet Box
September 25, 2017
I've been using Capstar for years for both my service dog and rescue cats. More effective, cheaper, and less messy than the oil slicks of other products that barely work and make the animals fight me during application and then roll around afterwards to rid themselves of the products.

Once a week I put a Capstar tablet in a piece of cheese for my dog (he loves it) and grind the tablets for the cats and mix with their food. I only have to do this during the flea season.

Absolutely NO FLEAS .. NONE .. Using Capstar has been the simplest way to administer flea prevention, it works within 30 minutes (usually faster), last a week or more, and the cost versus other products is lower in the long run. I'll never go back to other products!

Capstar kills fleas fast!
November 9, 2012
Capstar kills fleas fast, stopping your dogs scratching and discomfort, while you work to rid your house of fleas (I use Fleago). It was a godsend in the 2012 "flea season."

Great product for flea control
August 7, 2012
After brief wet spell my pack, 6 Bull Terriers, 1 Peronese, were scratching constantly. Used Capstar and don't notice any scratching after 10 days. My dogs are sensitive to Adams shampoo so I avoid topical treatments.

Unfortunately Capstar is only used to treat flea infestations in dogs. For a solution that treats tick infestations, try K9 Advantix II: http://www.entirelypets.com/k9-advantix-ii.html K9 Advantix II works to kill and repel both fleas and ticks on dogs older than 7 weeks of age. I hope this helps!
