I have to hide the capstar inside the pate' cat food. One day the kitty cat didn't eat the food that was placed outside. HOWEVER, flies found the food and ate it and there was 10+ dead flies flipped over around the catfood. Great way to kill flies...a little expensive for that though =D

This product was for killing fleas. We gave the animals a pill and it did not get rid of them. We have them another one and it still did not get rid of the fleas we are going to go back to the drops they work a lot better. We had heard good thins about the pill for fleas and this one just does not work. I wasted money that we did not have and they are worthless. Will not recammend to anyone to use.

      Comments about Capstar for Small Dogs and Cats 2-25-lbs:

      We have 3 indoor cats and got a new puppy in the spring. Suddenly we were totally infested with fleas in mid-summer. All the animals were already being treated with the "spot on the back" liquid preventative meds. Still, the fleas presisted throughout 2 house foggings, flea shampoos, and another spray on treatment. I got 2 packs of Capstar and gave each animal 2 rounds about a week apart, and suddenly the fleas are gone. It may be that the cold weather has helped, but none of us are scratching any more, and there's no more flea grit in their bedding and that includes mine too.

            Moved here to WA and my kitties never had fleas, so called a vet right away to get rid of the fleas right away and she recommended Capstar and it work right away but had to use 2 doses to get rid of them all in a 10 day span. Will use the product again for sure it really kills them off quickly and effective. Wish it had a long term effect rather than a few hours.
