Novartis Capstar (19215-Z)
We have used capstar very successfully this past summer. The flea infestation was horrible. We were able to treat all our kittens cats puppies and dogs. With so many critters it made it possible to treat all at once. Drops were just to slow, and seemed to cause discomfort as the fleas died slowly and would bite more as they died. Capstar killed quickly and without side effects. We consulted our vet and he encouraged us to use on pregnant and nursing mommas. It did wonders and we were so thankful that our animals were relieved so quickly without the 48 hours it seems to take the other drop products. After administering the capstar we were able to use the 30 day products for continued control. I love this product and would recommend it to everyone.
Capstar kills the fleas! I bought Capstar for my 15 year old Chihuahua and 5 year old Black/Tan that had never had fleas until we moved to Florida. The fleas are horrible here! I couldn't wait to get Capstar from the company to give my dogs relief from the fleas! A bath can only do so much and doesn't kill all the fleas. The only set back that I have with it, that it only last for 24 hours. When this product is bought, have a back up plan to keep them off. Capstar is a "magical pill" that starts to kill the fleas within an hour and they literally fall/jump off.
Capstar is terrific
It is great for an almost instant flea kill, but my favorite thing about it is that it kills maggots. As a shelter, we often see kittens with wounds that are infested with maggots, and we have had a very difficult time saving these kittens. Thanks to Capstar, there is no more painful and repeated wound flushing and all of the maggots die within 2 hours. This product is literally a lifesaver.
Terrific product, and apparently not harsh. Could tell immediate difference in our cats and large dog.
Capstar works GREAT. Starts to work within minutes. Have used Capstar on puppies and adult dogs without any problems. My only problem with Capstar is - that it is expensive $3.75 per pill, when you buy pack of 60. Button line if your puppy or dog has fleas - this is the product to use to start killing fleas instantly.. I always give my puppies a Capstar before they go to their new homes.
