What is Capstar?
Capstar with the active ingredient nitenpyram is a neonicotinoid type of insecticide used to eliminate adult fleas. It is an immediate relief for any adult flea problem in dogs. It causes instant paralysis and death to fleas by over stimulating and blocking receptors in fleas. To prevent re-infestation, a long term treatment may be used alongside this medication.

How is Capstar used?
Capstar is usually taken orally alongside food. For elimination of adult fleas, a single dose should be sufficient for your dog. In the case of reinfestation, it is safe to administer a dose once per day. The medication is short term relief and cannot be used as a long term preventative for fleas.

Adverse effects
There are usually no side effects experienced by dogs using Capstar, however, it should not be administered to puppies less than 4 weeks of age.

Do not use the medication if your pet is allergic to nitenpyram.

Capstar is not always suitable for all pets. Always consult your veterinarian prior to using this medication and disclose all notable medical history and details of any other medication the dog has been treated with.

The correct dosage and prescription commonly depend on the pet and the condition being treated. Do not adjust the dosage without the approval of your veterinarian. This product is only for use as prescribed and instructed.
