Capstar Tablets for Dogs & Cats contain Nitenpyram and are used for the treatment of flea infestations (C. felis) on cats and dogs.


Special precautions for use in animals:
  • Do not use Capstar 11.4 mg tablets on animals less than 4 weeks old or weighing less than 1 kg as these groups of animals were not studied.
  • Do not use Capstar 57 mg tablets on dogs weighing less than 11 kg.
  • One CAPSTAR 11.4 mg tablet should be given to cats and small dogs weighing 1 kg to 11.0 kg when a flea infestation is detected.
  • One CAPSTAR 57 mg tablet should be given to dogs weighing 11.1 kg to 57.0 kg and two tablets for dogs weighing over 57 kg when a flea infestation is detected.
The frequency of treatment depends on the degree of infestation. In the case of a severe flea infestation, it may be necessary to treat the animals every day or every other day, until the flea infestation is controlled. Treatment may be resumed if fleas reappear. No more than one treatment should be given per day.

Tablets should be given orally, with or without food. In order to improve palatability, tablets can be disguised in a small quantity of food immediately prior to administration.

CAPSTAR does not have persistent activity. To prevent re-infestation, a suitable treatment to control immature stages of the flea life cycle is recommended. The veterinary surgeon should establish an appropriate treatment regime.
