Great as long as you flea bomb the environment the dog lives in as well.
This isn't too bad a product cost wise and it does work however it only worked in conjunction with flea bombing the whole house and gave a second dose within a couple of weeks. it does seem to kill the fleas though just not for long.
Capstar does work if you know how to use it
Those people who have given Capstar a bad review have no idea about flea ecology—that doesn't mean that this product doesn't work, but people thinking it will stop fleas re-infesting the pets are simply ignorant.
Capstar is not a residual (long-action) treatment. It a knockdown treatment that works only for about 48 hours - and it does work, fast (about 30 minutes starts killing fleas) and completely. But put those pets back in the same environment and the fleas will just jump on them again after 2 days the capstar won't be working anymore (u...
May as well have flushed my money down the toilet
I purchased the Exelpet Capstar pack for medium/large dogs after using spot on and advantage products for many years. I thought they were marginally cheaper and may be more cost effective. Was I wrong! After the first day I thought it was great as the fleas had disappeared. By day 3 they were ALL back and the problem was only resolved by reverting to the tried and true products I have used in the past. I would never again buy any exelpet product as it was a TOTAL waste of money. I am very disappointed in this brand considering the fleas were gone for about 24 hours! Never again!!!
I bought this product to ease my poor dog who I noticed had fleas for the first time even though he's an indoor dog... I used this every other day for a week and he is scratching worse and still has fleas... I also used a flea powder and controlled his bedding and carpets, vacuumed etc but to no avail.. now off for a more expensive product as my poor pooch is scratching himself stupid..

Question is do you want to waste money on a product to kill a flea?
I purchased from woolworths, exelpet flea tablets for around $30 for six tablets, as my little princess had become itchy from a flea.
When I was at the store I asked the store person how long the tablets lasted for once administered to my dog and they responded, we don't know as there is nothing on the packaging or on any instructions. They responded after I purchased the tablets, that they would ask the sales rep. The next time they saw him?????!!
So when I arrived home I gave the tablet to my dog and the next morning she had stopped sc...ratching, here's me thinking "wow it worked", how ever the following day we went to the leash free dog park and guess what, she started scratching again and hasn't stopped since. I believe the answer is, don't waste your money on a product that doesn't display details and buy on that does, I believe the reason it doesn't state a "effective time" is because it is so small and you blink you will miss it?
My 18month old LabXGolden Retriever came back from a relative's farm, after she stayed there while I was away for 2 weeks, covered in fleas. First time she's ever had fleas; and she was so miserable! I bought Capstar and gave it to her along with washing her with flea shampoo, putting flea powder on her and washing all her blankets. Having treated our old dog when she was still alive (with all sorts of different products, but not Captsar) I still expected to have to give her several doses over a few days to clear up the fleas. But I never had to give her a second dose! The very next day, I couldn't find a single flea on her! She was itchy-free and a lot happier!
