Capstar® tablets kill adult fleas and are indicated for the treatment of flea infestations on dogs, puppies, cats and kittens. A single dose should kill the adult fleas on your pet and also kill adult fleas that cause flea allergy dermatitis. One dose starts working within 30 minutes to kill all the adult fleas on your pet. Another dose may be given as often as once per day if re-infestation occurs. In studies, Capstar achieved greater than 90% effectiveness against adult fleas on dogs within 4 hours and cats within 6 hours. Capstar may be used together with other products, including heartworm preventives, corticosteroids, antibiotics, vaccines, de-worming medications, shampoos and other flea products. Safe for kittens and puppies 2 pounds of body weight or greater and 4 weeks of age and older. Also safe for pregnant or nursing dogs and cats.
Not for use in puppies or kittens less than 4 weeks of age or weighing less than 2 pounds.
Not for human use.
When using this product, you may notice that your dog or cat will start scratching itself as fleas begin to die. The scratching behavior is temporary and is a reaction to the fleas, not the drug.
Keep out of the reach of children.
Store at controlled room temperature between 59°F and 77°F (15°F to 25°C).
Weigh your pet prior to administration to ensure proper dosage. To give Capstar Tablets, place the pill directly in your pet's 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. 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. Treat all infested pets in the household. Fleas can reproduce on untreated pets and allow infestations to persist.
