Other Things to Note
In some reviews, users actually feedback that the Capstar Flea Tablet started killing the adult fleas in as short as 30 minutes after feeding to their pet.
Upon treatment, fleas will start dying and falling off your pet within 30 mins. For the next couple of hours, you will see your pet scratching or even grooming quite aggressively likely due to the dying fleas going ‘crazy’.
After that, your pet will start feeling more comfortable. That’s a sign that the fleas are almost killed. Wait awhile and proceed to bath your pet dog or cat (try to use flea shampoo). Blow dry your pet and use a flea comb to pull out any remaining fleas (both alive or dead).

Once Flea condition is under control, it can be applied on a monthly basis as a preventative measure to keep fleas away.
If there’s difficulty getting your pet dog or cat to consume the flea tablet, try mixing this in their food. If unsure if your pet actually took the pill, it is safe to feed one more dose (that said, we do advice to wait one more day before feeding).

As with any treatment, it is best to find out how did the flea got on your pet in the first place (i.e was it from the yard? A play area you passed while out for a walk? Or could be from another dog or cat in the streets). Also apply flea repellents like Flea Collar or Fur conditioners to prevent and deter new fleas from hosting on your pet.
