Capstar Tablets are for the treatment of flea infestations on cats and dogs. Capstar can kill fleas that are on your animal within 15 minutes and the treatment lasts for 24 hours.
It is supplied in packs of 6 x 11mg or 6 x 57mg oral tablets.
Capstar can be used on animals 4 weeks and over. It is also safe to be used in pregnant and lactating bitches. Do not use in animals less then 1kg in bodyweight. 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 cats and dogs 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 bodyweight, 2 tablets will need to be given. Only one dose should be given daily.
Our vet says... "Don’t be surprised if your pet starts scratching after administering Capstar. The fleas will react to the product. Please don’t use Capstar on animals less than a month old or pets who weigh less than 1kg. Get a six month supply of tablets in either 11mg or 57mg. Always read the instructions on dosage thoroughly."

"I always use these tablets as a starting point to get rid of live fleas on my pets. It works almost instantly and the "tickle effect" is hilarious, well for me I guess, not for my fur babies!
I have read so many negative reviews about this product not working or having bad side effects which simply isn't true.
This product only kills the adult fleas present on your pet for 24-48 hours. If you have a flea infestation in your home this product will not work on it's own.
To break the flea lifecycle you will need to use a spot on treatment on your pet, wash all their bedding at a high temperature, treat all areas of your home where your pets spend their time with a product that targets flea eggs and larvae and hoover thoroughly every day for a few weeks, maybe even months.
Please don't expect this product to do the work for you!"/ (Posted on
