Treat your pet’s fleas with CAPSTAR

November 29, 2005 | by DoctorSolve

Most people think of fleas as strictly a nuisance. In reality, fleas can cause outstanding, long term problems for you pet. Fleas can be responsible for medical problems including flea allergy dermatitis (FAD), secondary skin irritations and, in extreme cases, anemia and the transmission of tapeworms.
CAPSTAR starts relieving your pet’s discomfort from flea bites in just 30 minutes. A single dose of the pet medication CAPSTAR should kill 90% of the adult fleas on your pet. Unlike some liquid-drop flea control pet drugs, CAPSTAR doesn’t leave any pesticide residues on your pet that can rub off in your home.
CAPSTAR has no side effects and is proven safe and effective for both dogs and cats. It can be used with puppies and kittens as young as four weeks weighing at least two pounds, as well as with pregnant and nursing dogs and cats. CAPSTAR is only available with a prescription and comes in two dosages (administered according to the pet’s weight).
Studies show CAPSTAR is safe to use with lufenuron. A single dose of CAPSTAR should kill all the adult fleas on a pet. If the pet gets re-infested, it is safe to give another CAPSTAR tablet as often as once per day.
The active ingredient in CAPSTAR is nitenpyram. Nitenpyram belongs to the chemical class of neonicotinoids. Neonicotinoids inhibit insect specific nicotinic acetylcholine receptors. Nitenpyram interferes with normal nerve transmission and leads to the death of the insect but does not inhibit acetylcholinesterase.
