PROGRAM Tabs/Suspension contain lufenuron which break the flea life cycle by inhibiting egg development. CAPSTAR Tablets kill adult fleas. The concurrent use of these two products provides an effective flea management system.
If a pet currently has a flea infestation, more rapid relief can be accomplished by combining CAPSTAR and PROGRAM to the treatment.
Single dose of CAPSTAR should kill the adult fleas on your pet. If your pet gets re-infested with fleas, you can safely give another dose as often as once per day.
To give CAPSTAR Tablets, place the pill directly in your pet's mouth, or hide it in food. If you hide the pill in food, watch closely to make sure your pet swallows the pill. If you are not sure that your pet swallowed the pill, it is safe to give a second pill.
Treat all infested pets in the household. Fleas can reproduce on untreated pets and allow infestations to persist.
