Capstar Flea Tablets
Capstar tablets are used to treat infestations of fleas on cats and dogs.
The active ingredient in Capstar tablets is nitenpyram which is a systemic flea adulticide. Nitenpyram interferes with the normal nerve transmission in the fleas which causes the death of these parasites.
Capstar is designed to rapidly kill off fleas, which means that within 15 minutes of taking the tablet fleas begin to be affected. Within 6 hours 95-100% of the flea infestation is killed and within 24 hours the tablet takes full effect.
These tablets are available is two dosages, 11.4 mg and 57 mg.
