Please conintue reading to find out more about combing Capstar with Program Flavor tabs which together kill adult fleas and prevent flea eggs from hatching, providing a flea management system on dogs and puppies. Capstar may also be used with Sentinel Flavor tabs (for dogs only) to kill adult fleas and prevent heartworms.
We recommend reading the insert contained in each package for complete information on the individual products prior to dosing.
Step 1: Prevention and Control
Give PROGRAM Flavor Tabs once per month to prevent and control flea populations. PROGRAM Flavor Tabs
contain lufenuron. Lufenuron controls flea populations by pre venting the development of flea eggs and does not kill adult fleas. If a dog currently has a flea infestation, more rapid relief can be accomplished by adding CAPSTAR to the treatment as follows.
Step 2: Kill Adult Fleas
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 cats and dogs in the household. Fleas can reproduce on untreated pets and allow infestations to persist.
The combination of PROGRAM Flavor Tabs and CAPSTAR Tablets should be administered according to the package insert. Please see package insert for an accurate recommended Dosage Schedule. Weigh the dog prior to administration to ensure proper dosage. Do not administer to dogs under 2 pounds.
