Capstar is a production of Novartis, a trusted animal health care pharmaceutical company. This oral flea treatment kills adult fleas on dogs. It is the fastest flea killer that starts acting in 30 minutes of application and destroys almost 100% adult fleas within 5-7 hours of administration. Being a short term adulticide, Capstar needs to be followed by a long term flea control to prevent the re-infestation of fleas. This tablet works for 24 hours and then after you need to administer another tablet. It works most effectively for adult dogs and puppies above 4 weeks of age during heavy flea infestation.
How it works?
This excellent flea treatment is formulated with Nitenpyram. Without any adverse effects on pets, Nitenpyram manages to disrupt the nerve transmission in fleas. This neural disturbance causes the death of pests in a short period of time. It is a short term treatment and the active ingredient is flushed out of the dog’s system after 24 hours. Capstar is highly opted for treating heavy flea infestation on canines. It can also be administered while the pet is on a long term treatment for quick dismissal of fleas.
