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.

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 dermatitis 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.

In addition to killing adult fleas with Capstar, y ou can treat your pet with an insect development inhibitor like PROGRAM Flavor Tabs to prevent and control flea populations. Please see the separate PROGRAM Flavor Tabs/CAPSTAR Tablets Flea Management System insert included in this package for information on how to use these two products together to kill adult fleas and prevent flea eggs from hatching. For information on how to use SENTINEL ® Flavor Tabs ® (for dogs only) with CAPSTAR Tablets, see your veterinarian.

The following diagram illustrates the flea’s life cycle and where CAPSTAR Tablets work:

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. After reading this insert, if you have any questions about flea control or medical problems associated with flea infestations, consult your veterinarian, who is your pet’s health care expert .

Storage Conditions

Information for Dosing Dogs

This insert describes the concurrent use of PROGRAM® (lufenuron) Flavor Tabs™ and CAPSTAR® (nitenpyram) Tablets for the management of fleas on dogs and puppies. Please read the insert contained in each package for complete information on the individual products prior to dosing.

Warnings

Step 1: Prevention and Control
Give PROGRAM Flavor Tabs once per month to prevent and control flea populations. PROGRAM Flavor Tabs contain lufenuron.

Step 2: Kill Adult Fleas
If your pet currently has a flea infestation, use CAPSTAR Tablets to kill adult fleas. CAPSTAR Tablets contain nitenpyram and are effective for the treatment of flea infestations. Nitenpyram starts killing adult fleas within 30 minutes of administration.

  • Administer CAPSTAR Tablets once per week until adult fleas are no longer observed.
  • For a severe flea infestation, administer CAPSTAR Tablets twice per week until adult fleas are no longer observed.
  • Additional CAPSTAR Tablets may be administered as needed to kill the occasional adult flea picked up from infested environments.
  • It is important to treat all cats (see reverse side of this insert) and dogs in the household. Fleas can reproduce on untreated pets and allow infestations to persist.
