Adverse reactions (frequency and seriousness)

For the first hour after administration, the pet may scratch more than normal. This effect is caused by the fleas reacting to the product. In very rare cases this may present as transient signs of hyperactivity, panting, vocalisation, and excessive grooming/licking.

Transient neurological signs such as muscle tremors, ataxia, and convulsions have also been reported in very rare occasions.

Amounts to be administered and administration route

The minimum effective recommended dose is 1 mg/kg, with the following recommendations:

One CAPSTAR 11.4 mg tablet should be given to small dogs weighing 1 kg to 11.0 kg when a flea infestation is detected.

One CAPSTAR 57 mg tablet should be given to dogs weighing 11.1 kg to 57.0 kg and two tablets for dogs weighing over 57 kg when a flea infestation is detected. The frequency of treatment depends on the degree of infestation. In the case of a severe flea infestation, it may be necessary to treat the animals every day or every other day, until the flea infestation is controlled. Treatment may be resumed if fleas reappear. No more than one treatment should be given per day.

Tablets should be given orally, with or without food. In order to improve palatability, tablets can be disguised in a small quantity of food immediately prior to administration.

CAPSTAR does not have persistent activity. To prevent re-infestation, a suitable treatment to control immature stages of the flea life cycle is recommended. The veterinary surgeon should establish an appropriate treatment regime.

*CAPSTAR can only be obtained with a prescription.
