Description

Help keep your cat pest-free with the Capstar Flea Tablets for Cats. Each tablet contains an active ingredient called nitenpyram and helps eliminate fleas in cats and kittens weighing between 2 to 25 pounds. The fast-acting formula starts working within 30 minutes and has been proven to be more than 90% effective in eliminating adult fleas within just hours. That means less itchiness and discomfort for your companion, much faster—and without the mess and odors of a topical solution. Capstar can also help kill adult fleas that may cause flea allergy dermatitis, which often results in uncomfortable, itchy skin. Just give the tablet as directed, and let the formula do the rest. This medication is safe to give your cat once a day with or without his favorite food.

    Spot Treatment that works!!!!

    By on

    I have two cats that refuse to wear a flea collar, so I'm using the Frontline plus monthly application. They have been scratching a lot lately, and I did confirm one flea, so I purchased this for them as a spot treatment and got the flea comb. I mashed it up in their wet food, and this worked so well!!! I had no idea they had that many fleas. The fleas actually jump out of their fur! I'll treat them again tomorrow to see if we got all the adult fleas this time. My poor babies are just snoozing away now that they don't have to scratch all the time. This doesn't replace your monthly treatment because it doesn't work on ticks or eggs, but if your cat is scratching even though you give them I have two cats that refuse to wear a flea collar, so I'm using the Frontline plus monthly application.

    Best oral flea medicine for cats

    By on

    Absolutely LOVE this product. Convenient, small pill that is easy to administer. No messy ointments to drop onto the skin that make my cats go berserk. If my cats have fleas, they literally begin to drop off and die within 30 minutes. The pill is easy to repeat to keep fleas at bay and keeps my kitties from scratching. Does not cause upset stomach or any isolated hair loss like ointments or collars. Best product I have found that works as advertised and is very economical.

    I’ve had a flea problem every flea season...

    By on

    I’ve had a flea problem every single flea season (my boyfriend and I have been wanting our cats to be inside cats but my in-laws insist on having their cat go outside from time to time like a dog) and once we had two kittens with fleas all over them I know I had to draw the line and try something new. These worked so well! And I’m so happy they have so many exceptions and can be used every 24 hours. We used them just once so far and they died and jumped right off of our poor little fur babies now they are so happy and not scratching at their bites anymore.

    This stuff worked wonders!

    By on

    This stuff worked like magic! I really figured that it would probably just make the fleas fall off, if anything at all. Boy, was I wrong! I have 6 indoor cats and they had fleas really bad. I gave each one a tablet and within 2 or 3 hrs, they went from scratching themselves silly to sound asleep. The fleas did fall off, but they were completely dead. It lasted for about 4-5 days until I saw a live flea again. I wish it killed the eggs and larvae. Other than that, this stuff was great!

    THE BEST THING SINCE THE WHEEL

    By on

    I have two INDOOR fur babies that developed fleas for the first time after living under my roof for over 10 years, so the only one I can blame for this phenomenon is myself. I must have brought them into the house somehow - anyway I've been trying to get rid of them for about 3 or 4 months now until one of the wonderful Chewy people recommended Capstar. The little buggers are all but gone now and all three of us could not be happier. The pills are tiny (no gagging), you get 6, so I had enough for 3 each. Still have one left (the longhair needed 3 and the short hair only 2). MY ADVICE IS - DON'T HESITATE.

    Best product I have used

    By on

    I don’t usually write reviews for items like this, but all i have to say is wow. My order arrived the next day, which was surprising to me. Once it got here i immediately gave my kitten the pill, I crushed it up and mixed it with some wet food. Thirty minutes later there were fleas just trying to leave her fur and once they did, they were alive for a couple seconds.

    ONCE a day???

    By on

    Why would anyone want to give their pets a flea treatment daily? The description says "may give it up to once a day". It doesn't to say you HAVE to give it once a day if you expect to be flea free. Advantage has stopped working and I was looking for a good alternative. This is not it!

    Works Like A Charm

    By on

    Can't be duplicated. My indoor cats don't get fleas often, in fact only once badly due to me hanging with the outdoor kitties, and another time I think I brought one in on my shoe. My dog's never had them, which is odd, because she goes out (but she's treated). Anyway, one of these pills and poof problem gone, simply amazing.

    Great Product easy to give.

    By on

    This product saves my issues for my cat. He is an outdoor and indoor cat so I worry about the fleas. Since he is part Siamese they tend to have allergies and last year he suffered so. I rely on this product put it into his Greenies treat and that is it. Thanks Chewy!!

    Kills the fleas

    By on

    I have used Capstar before & am ordering again from Chewy. I don't know where people get the idea that this is a 30 day treatment. I guess they are not reading all the information on it. Capstar kills the adult fleas on your cat, it only lasts 24 hours. Since other flea products take longer, you can also use this with other products. Please read all info & make sure it is compatible before using.
