Capstar is an oral flea adulticide containing nitenpyram for the rapid elimination of fleas (Ctenocephalides felis). It is also safe to be used in pregnant and lactating bitches. For the first hour after administration, your pet may scratch more than normal which is common. This is caused by the fleas reacting to the product.
Dosage and administration: Capstar is to be given orally, either directly into the mouth or mixed into a small portion of food, and then given immediately. For dogs and cats up to 11kg, please issue 1x 11mg tablets.
For dogs over 11kg and over, please issue 1x 57mg tablets. If your dog is more than 57kg in body weight, 2 tablets will need to be given. Only one dose should be given daily.
Do not use in animals less than 1kg in body weight.
Capstar can be used on animals for 4 weeks and over.
