Capstar Flea Tablets for Dogs and Cats Review

Capstar Flea Tablets for Dogs and Cats

If your dog or cat has a flea infestation, you know the experience is not only irritating to your pet, but also frustrating to you as a pet owner. Fleas can be tough to get rid of and a pet owner can experience much confusion when it comes to finding the best treatment and preventative to make sure the fleas not only die, but stay away permanently.

While Capstar Flea Tablets will help you give immediate relief to your pet, we do not recommend this product for long term use. The reason being that Capstar is simply a brand name for the insecticide nitenpyram. Therefore, if you want to stay away from solutions that are chemical-based out of concern for your pets health and happiness, you probably want to look for more natural flea tablets.

While we don’t recommend Capstar, we do see it’s short term benefit. Reviews of this product note that fleas will literally jump from the body of your pet and die, killing the pests on contact as soon as this pill is digested. The pill will start to work thirty minutes after consumption and the majority of fleas on your pet should be dead within four hours.

It can be used on dogs and cats, as well as puppies and kittens as young as four weeks old. While Capstar is generally safe and effective, it should definitely not be used in animals with known hypersensitivity, allergies, etc. as there are side effects. If your animals infestation is soo bad that you are considering Capstar, please note that it should only be used for immediate relief.

Even though Capstar claims these tablets are a once a week solution that you can feed pet as an ongoing repellent, we do not consider them effective as a longer-term flea preventative. Not only are you feeding your pet an insecticide, but it has no long-term residual activity. Therefore, it is best to only use a tablet like these in the event of a heavy infestation.

    Our vet insists on giving our dog this pill every time she goes into “doggie daycare.” My son works and I work and the dog has terrible anxiety issues if left. She is also suffering from terrible allergies. Every time she comes home from this vet, after having the pill, she is ill. She vomits, has bad diarrhea, will not eat or drink, and is very lethargic. The vet refuses to NOT give her the pill even although we have voiced concerns and told her of the dog’s reaction. Needless to say, after reading this report, we will be looking into another vet and place to board our dog twice a week. Thank you for the information.
