Product Summary:

Capstar for Dogs and Cats 6-Pack

The fleas on your pet are in the adult stage. An adult female flea, living on a pet, can lay up to 2,000 eggs in her lifetime. Capstar® is an oral tablet for dogs, puppies, cats and kittens four weeks of age and older and two pounds of body weight or greater. It begins working in 30 minutes after treatment, killing over 90% of fleas within four hours for dogs and six hours for cats.

Capstar® has no labeled side effects, and can be used along with other flea-control products and medications commonly dispensed by veterinarians, including heartworm preventives, deworming products, shampoos, and antibiotics. It is eliminated from a pet’s system rapidly, enhancing safety and reducing the opportunity for fleas to develop resistance.

Item Specifications:

2-25 lb. (Dogs and Cats)
25 lb. and over (Dogs only)

How to Use:
A single dose of Capstar (nitenpyram) should kill the adult fleas on the pet. If the pet gets reinfested with fleas, you can safely give another dose as often as one dose per day. To administer Capstar tablets, place the pill directly in the pet’s mouth or hide in the pet's food. If you choose to hide the tablet in the pet's food, watch closely to make sure the pet swallows the pill. If you are not sure that the pet swallowed the pill, it is safe to administer a second pill.

Adverse Reactions
Laboratory and clinical studies showed that Capstar Tablets are safe for use in dogs and cats, puppies and kittens four weeks of age and older and two pounds of body weight or greater.

Other Information:
Capstar Tablets begin working within 30 minutes. In studies, Capstar achieved greater than 90% effectiveness against adult fleas on dogs within four hours and cats within six hours. Capstar Tablets are safe for pregnant or nursing dogs and cats. 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. In very rare cases in cats, this may present as transient signs of hyperactivity, panting, vocalization and excessive grooming. Capstar Tablets kill adult fleas that cause flea allergy dermatitis (FAD). Capstar Tablets may be used together with other products, including heartworm preventives, corticosteroids, antibiotics, vaccines, de-worming medications, shampoos and other flea products.

Flea Infestations on Dogs and Cats:
In addition to the common nuisance irritations associated with infestations, fleas can be responsible for skin conditions in your pet such as flea allergy dermatitis (FAD) in the dog and miliary derma titis in the cat. Also, fleas transmit other parasites, including tapeworms. The control of flea infestations is important to your pet's health and also reduces the problems associated with these parasites. Capstar Tablets do not have an effect on fleas in the pet's environment. You may need to treat more than one time because immature fleas in and around the home will continue to develop into adults that can reinfest your pet.

Life Cycle of the Flea:
Fleas can be a problem because they reproduce so rapidly. A single female flea may produce up to 2,000 eggs over her lifetime. Eggs hatch and can develop into adults within only three weeks. Adult female fleas feed by ingesting blood from your pet and subsequently lay eggs, which drop off your pet's coat. Within days, larvae hatch from the eggs and live undetected in your pet's surroundings, such as the carpet, bedding and other protected areas. Flea larvae spin a cocoon, and, when appropriately stimulated, a young adult flea emerges and jumps onto your pet to continue the life cycle. When these new fleas are seen on your pet, treat with Capstar Tablets.
