editorial review:

Capstar is a quick and effective flea treatment for both dogs and cats. It comes in a simple tablet form that starts working against fleas in just 30 minutes. A single dose can kill 90% of adult fleas on your pet within four hours for dogs and six hours for cats. You can buy Capstar without a prescription, which makes it easy to get. 

Capstar is safe for dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens that are at least four weeks old and weigh more than two pounds. Giving the tablet is easy — you can hide it in food so your pet eats it without knowing. If your pet gets fleas again, you can give another dose as often as once a day until there are no more fleas. But remember, while Capstar kills adult fleas, it doesn't stop flea eggs from hatching. So you'll need to use other treatments along with Capstar for long-term flea control.

what we like:

  • Fast Acting: Begins working within 30 minutes
  • High Efficacy: Kills 90% of adult fleas in few hours
  • No Prescription: Easy to buy without vet's note
  • Safe for Pets: Good for dogs and cats over four weeks old

what could be better:

  • Not Long-Term: Doesn't stop flea eggs from hatching
  • Frequent Dosage: Might need daily dose for heavy infestations
