Fleas rise to the top of your pet’s coat as they die, so consider it a triumph if you start seeing more fleas at first, after treating your pet. If you’re still seeing fleas after application, it may be because your pet has picked up new fleas from the environment, which may include other pets, surfaces and outdoor areas. It may take up to 30 days to break the entire flea life cycle. Additionally, you should also treat sources of new fleas (i.e., carpet, yard, etc.) to ensure complete flea control.
A single dose of Capstar Tablets should kill the adult fleas on your pet. If your pet gets re-infested with fleas, you can safely give another dose as often as once per day. Please refer to the package insert for complete information.

Works every time –
Note, only works for 24 hours, but it’s a wonderful product to use after spraying your yards and the day that you administer topical flea preventions… Capstar is ORAL, and kills all fleas for 24 hours so that your other products have time to kick in. Wouldn’t be without it. I’ve used it once per month during summer time when fleas are so bad outside, due to other stray dogs and/or wildlife “not” being protected, so that brings fleas to our land.
