Capstar Tablets are for the treatment of flea infestations on cats and dogs.
It is a white/yellow round tablet supplied in packs of 6 x 11mg or 6 x 57mg oral tablets.
Capstar can kill fleas that are on your animal within 15 minutes and the treatment lasts for 24 hours.
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.
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.

the capstar is normally just a short term treatment to kills fleas and then you use your normal monthly or two monthly treatment such as advantage of frontline. Let us know if we can help
