  • Description Description

    Capstar Blue an efficient, single, fast-acting dose that kills 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. To administer Capstar tablets, place the pill directly in your pet's mouth, or hide it in food. If you choose to hide the tablet 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 administer a second pill.

    We recommend you follow up Capstar treatment with a monthly flea control product such as Frontline Plus and keep Capstar on hand for the times when there is a visible flea re-infestation.

    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 please refer to the package insert for complete information.

    Administration

    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.

  • Capstar convenience

    Capstar is very convenient and works well. I use it because it is easier for me than trying to get my cat to accept the liquid flea solution which is applied to her neck.

  • FINALLY RELIEF!

    This was a miracle after I discovered an infestation with my 3 cats. Yes, they do scratch - excessively!!! after about 20 mins of administering Capstar - that's because the fleas are reacting to the Capstar in the cats system and then they bite. It's when they bite that they finally start dying, FAST! On cats, it kills all adult, living fleas that are on the animal and will be effective for up to 24 hours. My cats finally SLEPT last night because they weren't crawling. Capstar does nothing for eggs, larvae - only works on live fleas so it's not a miracle like Revolution - it's a quick fix to make your pet comfortable within minutes. YES, I will have a stock of this on hand for when it happens again. No questions about it. I intend to now maintain with Revolution - Frontline Plus is crap.

  • Great relief

    I have a feral cat that doesn't allow me to handle her. I can tell when she's itchy, so Capstar is very helpful for a little relief. It's easy to break it up in her food and, although it is only short term, I know she feels good for a little bit.

  • Very helpful for fighting fleas

    I learned about Capstar while volunteering at my local animal shelter and was so happy to find it here. It truly does kill the fleas within 24 hours, which is especially useful for pets with flea allergy dermatitis. My dog really suffers in the summer from fleas and using a topical treatment monthly and Capstar in between for when he gets really itchy has definitely helped him.

    My dog was having a terrible time when we moved to Florida. Baths, treatments and oils did not work for more than a day. Upon a recommendation, I gave one to my dog Max. The next day he stopped scratching and there were numerous dead fleas in his bed. I give him one every two weeks without ill effects. I recommend it to everyone who has pets.

  • It works

    I don\'t know why some one hasn\'t rated this product before. It works exactly as stated. Fleas start jumping off within minutes. Then follow up with program or like product

  • WORKS!

    Capstar was the ONLY way to immediately knock down the massive flea problem we had and give relieft to our pets. Very scary tho as the fleas are dying they dig in and the pets were like in agony for about 20 minutes! Washed them off and it was done.

  • These just do not work!

    I gave them to my 5 housedogs which only weigh about 3,4,5 and 6 pounds. Those are Yorkies. And I gave one to my wiener dog. These tablets didn't even make one bit of difference. They were still crawling with fleas. Their constant scratching makes me feel so badly for them! So I gave them all another pill one week later. Still crawling with fleas. I knew it was too good to be true that I could take care of the fleas so cheaply. I'm going to save my money and get some Frontline. I also bathe them every weekend in a dishpan of salt water with lemon juice and olive oil. The saltwater kills the fleas.

  • Quick to give and fast to act
