  • If your pet currently has a flea infestation, use CAPSTAR Tablets to kill adult fleas. CAPSTAR Tablets contain nitenpyram and are effective for the treatment of flea infestations. Nitenpyram starts killing adult fleas within 30 minutes of administration.

    • Administer CAPSTAR Tablets once per week until adult fleas are no longer observed.
    • For a severe flea infestation, administer CAPSTAR Tablets twice per week until adult fleas are no longer observed.
    • Additional CAPSTAR Tablets may be administered as needed to kill the occasional adult flea picked up from infested environments.
    • It is important to treat all dogs (see reverse side of this insert) and cats in the household. Fleas can reproduce on untreated pets and allow infestations to persist.
