No more than one treatment should be given per day. If a continuous flea infestation is observed after using CAPSTAR, the attending veterinarian should be consulted for further advice.

CAPSTAR Tablets contain 11.4 or 57.0 mg of nitenpyram, which belongs to the chemical class of neonicotinoids. Nitenpyram kills adult fleas. Nitenpyram, the active ingredient of Capstar, belongs to the chemical class of neonicotinoids which bind and inhibit insect specific nicotinic acetylcholine receptors. Nitenpyram interferes with normal nerve transmission and leads to the death of the insect. Nitenpyram does not inhibit acetylcholinesterase.
