Directions For Use

Capstar (nitenpyram) Tablets have been developed for the oral treatment of flea infestations on cats and dogs. The active ingredient, nitenpyram, is a systemic flea adulticide which rapidly and completely eliminates adult fleas taking a blood meal from a treated animal. Nitenpyram interferes with normal nerve transmission in the fleas and leads to the death of these parasites.

Capstar (nitenpyram) Tablets are indicated for the rapid elimination of fleas (Ctenocephalides felis) on dogs, cats, puppies and kittens four weeks of age and older.

Capstar Tablets are available in two concentrations of nitenpyram for convenient dosing: 11.4 mg per tablet for small dogs and cats and 57 mg per tablet for large dogs. The minimum recommended dosage is 1 mg of nitenpyram per kg of body weight. The product can be given directly into the mouth, or mixed with the pet's favorite food according to the following schedule:

Weight of Cat Dose (Tablets)

1 - 11kg One small (11.4 mg) tablet per day, until fleas are no longer found on the host.
11 - 57kg One large (57 mg) tablet per day, until fleas are no longer found on the host.

Flea detection can be achieved by examining the skin for signs of flea activity by parting the pet's coat.
It is important to treat all dogs and cats in a household: fleas can reproduce on untreated dogs and cats and allow infestations to persist. Because immature fleas continue to develop into adult fleas for several weeks after the administration of Capstar, repeated treatment may be necessary for optimal control of infestation.
Note: Effective long-term flea control demands an integrated approach. Monthly administration of an insect development inhibitor, such as lufenuron (Sentinel™, Program®), will prevent the development of immature stages of the flea's life cycle.
