    What are Capstar Flea Treatment Tablets?

    Capstar Flea Treatment Tablets are used to kill fleas on dogs and cats, which begins working within 30 minutes. Capstar will kill more than 90% of adult fleas within 4 hours on dogs and 6 hours on cats, and pets may temporarily scratch as a result of the fleas dying.
    Capstar Flea Treatment Tablets for Dogs and Cats
    For:
    Cats (4 weeks of age and older and 2 pounds of body weight or greater)
    Dogs (4 weeks of age and older and 2 pounds of body weight or greater)
     
    Benefits:
    Starts killing fleas within 30 minutes
    Unflavored tablet
    Safe for pregnant or nursing dogs and cats

    How it works:
    The active ingredient in Capstar is nitenpyram, an insecticide. This oral treatment kills adult fleas quickly. Nitenpyram interferes with nerve transmission in fleas, with no adverse effect on your pet.

    Cautions:
    Pets may scratch as a result of the fleas dying, but it is a temporary condition and not a reaction to the medication itself.

    BEST MONEY CAN BUY AFTER THE FIRST DOSE THE FLEAS STARTED , TO DIE WITH IN ONE HOUR. DEAD FLEAS EVERY WHERE COULD NOT BE HAPPIER.WISH I FOUND THIS PROUDUCT ALONG TIME AGO.FLEAS NEVER CAME BACK .AS LONG AS YOU GIVE YOUR PETS 1 TAB EVERY 1 TO 2 WEEKS. 05/23/2011
    Really works Our four cats were really struggling with fleas. We'd use drops on them every month, but it didn't totally stop the problem, just slowed it down a little. Within hours of giving the Capstar capsule, they had quit scratching (all but the one with flea allergy, thus skin rash which is healing now), and they no longer drop flea blood and debris on the bathroom counter or in the bathroom sink when they jump up for "drips"! We are extremely pleased! 05/12/2011
    Works Great I have never had a flea product work this well on my dog. My poor dog has suffered from fleas for a while and we always used one of those oily flea preventatives that never seemed to work. With Capstar I just wrapped the pill up in a little piece of cheese, my dog ate it like it was nothing. Since then I haven't seen one flea on him. I also recommend using this with the Program pill. They work amazing together. 03/26/2011
    I ordered Frontline flea meds for my 65 kbs 10 month old puppy. It didn.t work after four days so I called and ordered Castar, 6 to a box, and have given him four tablets in six days and he still has fleas. Do you have a flea product taht works on a long haired Azzie shepard and wolf mix. My dog needs it and the house is becoming infested. 03/21/2011
    Capstar for Dogs I would highly recommend it for dogs infested severly with fleas. We gave it to our two and with in 30 minutes we saw a huge difference. Our lucky wasn't winning any more and they were not stopping every few seconds to scratch. 03/14/2011

    I am wondering for a dog with an existing flea infestation, is it safe to give one tablet of Capstar to remove all adult fleas and then give Trifexis the next day for monthly flea (and other parasite) preventative (and then keep up Trifexis all year)? Do these drugs interact? Thanks!

    Thank you for your question. We suggest giving Capstar to your furry pal 24 hours before you give them their monthly dose of flea and worm treatment. Capstar only kills the adult fleas for 24 hours.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question. Capstar is a treatment to kill adult fleas and only lasts for 24 hours. We recommend you use a monthly flea and tick preventative to eliminate the flea eggs and larvae. K9 Advantix II, Activyl Plus Tick and Frontline Plus are great monthly preventatives.

    It looks like whoever answered my question didn't read my question. I haven't bought it yet nor have any of my animals ingested it. I'm asking how long the package last before it expires. Here's the original question:

    My dogs don't have fleas now but if I bought it now to have just in case, how long would it be good for before it expires?
