Oral Flea Control Medication for Dogs and Cat

Capstar flea control is safe for dogs and cats and kills almost 100% of adult fleas in less than eight hours. The main ingredient, nitenpyram, provides almost instant relief from flea infestations. Capstar pet meds are available in quantities of 6 and 60 tablets for cats and dogs 2-25 lbs., and for dogs over 25 lbs.

Capstar is an oral, over-the-counter medication for dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens that kills adult fleas. It begins working within half an hour, killing at least 90 percent of all fleas on dogs within 4 hours and at least 90 percent of all fleas on cats within 6 hours.

  • Fast-acting formula starts killing adult fleas in 30 minutes
  • Kills most adult fleas in less than 6 hours
  • Helps prevent flea allergy dermatitis in dogs and miliary dermatitis in cats
  • Helps prevent parasitic transfers from fleas to pets
  • One oral dose takes care of flea infestations and lasts for 24 hours
  • Safe to re-administer once a day in case of subsequent infestations

  • Approved for use on all dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens older than 4 weeks and weighing more than 2 lbs.
  • Safe for pregnant and nursing bitches and queens
  • No known food, supplement, or drug interactions

Capstar is not a preventative medication. It is used to kill adult fleas currently infesting your pet. Other fleas in the area must be eliminated as well to prevent reinfestation.

Keep out of reach of children. Do not allow children to administer Capstar. Read directions and precautionary statements before use.

Use of Capstar in conjunction with Program Tablets is recommended.

This product is available over the counter.

Warnings:

Keep this product out of reach of children and animals.

Capstar is intended for dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens that are at least 4 weeks old and that weigh at least 2 lbs. Not for human consumption. Not for other animals.

Capstar is available without prescription, but consult your veterinarian before use.

CAUTION: While Capstar is not known to cause interactions with supplements or drugs, talk to your veterinarian before putting your pet on any regimen.

Capstar is not associated with side effects. Pets typically scratch after administration of Capstar; however, this is a result of the fleas dying off, not a reaction to the medication.
