Capstar® Tablets for Dogs & Cat
Capstar® (nitenpyram) is a fast-acting flea treatment for dogs and cats that kills adult fleas before they can start an infestation. Capstar is an oral treatment that is convenient to deliver.
How long does it take for Capstar to begin working?
Capstar starts killing fleas within 30 minutes to give your pet quick relief. One oral tablet kills over 90% of fleas within 4 hours for dogs and 6 hours for cats.
Do I need a prescription to purchase Capstar?
No, Capstar is available online and at retail outlets without a prescription.
Common Dosage Forms:
- 2-25 lbs (11.4 mg) (BLUE)
- 26-125 lbs (57 mg) (GREEN)
What is the best way to administer Capstar?
Capstar is available as an oral flea tablet. Place the pill directly in your pet's mouth or hide it in food. If you hide it 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.
How often can I administer Capstar to my pet?
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 a day.
What type of parasites does Capstar kill?
Capstar kills adult fleas. Its active ingredient, nitenpyram, starts killing fleas in just 30 minutes.
How does Capstar work to treat flea infestations?
Female fleas can lay up to 50 eggs a day. If left untreated, a flea infestation can take months to eradicate.
Capstar kills adult fleas before they can lay eggs. Capstar can be given as often as once daily, if needed, to treat a flea infestation as existing flea larvae emerge into adult fleas.
Can Capstar act as a preventive flea treatment?
Capstar can be used daily, as needed, for fast-acting relief from an existing flea infestation. A monthly flea infestation preventive is recommended for long-term treatment and prevention of flea infestations.
