can i give my 8 week old kitten a bath after giving him a capster tablet for fleas? if so what should i use and how long after taking the tablet should i wait?
My dog accidentally ate 2 cap star tablets (small dog). Please help
I'd only be concerned if your dog shows any adverse reaction such as vomiting, lethargy or not responding. For most dogs, they do not have an adverse reaction, however I'd still recommend that you just call your vet to get some professional guidance.
Thank you, I did call my vet and kept an eye on him and he was fine thank god :) (it'd be all out of his system by now I think, it's been over 24hrs) I was freaking out because I had been seeing that people's dogs were having seizures from them & the fact that he had a double dose :(
Didn't even get rid of the fleas, won't be using it anymore
Can my 8 week pregnant cat take capstan?
No, pregnant and lactating cats should not be given Capstar. There's anecdotal evidence that it may cause birth defects in the kittens which is why the company no longer puts on the packaging that it's ok to use on pregnant/lactating cats - if you're wondering why the package doesn't state "Don't use on pregnant/lactating cats", it's because the evidence is anecdotal only, so until it's actually proven, the company limits its liability by just removing the statement from packaging! Unfortunately, you'd have to treat the pregnant cat the long way, a flea bath, followed by a spot on treatment as well as cleaning anything that the cat lies/sleeps on and you would have to do this a few times to ensure that the flea cycle is broken. Hope that helps, good luck!
