Elanco Capstar is a flea oral treatment for dogs and cats that kills adult fleas very rapidly, before they even start an infestation in your best friend. Through its active substance, nitenpyram, Capstar starts to kill fleas within 30 minutes and over 90% of fleas within four hours in dogs and six hours in cats. This way, your pet will be able to get a quick relief.
Since female fleas can lay up to an impressive 50 eggs a day, a flea infestation can take months to eradicate, if untreated. Capstar is an efficient flea treatment because it can kill adult fleas before they start laying eggs. As such, Capstar is recommended to be used during an existing flea infestation.
Capstar can be given as often as once a day, if your pet gets re-infested with fleas. Capstar is available in three packages: Capstar 57 mg, for large dogs, and Capstar 11.4 mg, for small dogs and cats. This over-the-counter treatment is safe to use in dogs, puppies, cats and kittens with two pounds of body weight or more and four weeks of age or older.
Capstar Elanco can also be used with flea shampoos, as well as heartworm preventives, antibiotics, vaccines and deworming medication.
