When using this product, you may notice that your dog will start scratching itself as fleas begin to die. The scratching behavior is temporary and is a reaction to the fleas, not the drug. In dogs, this may present as transient signs of hyperactivity, panting, vocalization and excessive grooming/licking.
Kill adult fleas that cause flea allergy dermatitis (FAD).
May be used together with other products, including heartworm preventatives, corticosteroids, antibiotics, vaccines, de-worming medications, shampoos and other flea products.

The fleas got pretty severe in my apartment to the point where I couldn't walk across the room without getting a dozen of the little suckers biting my ankles. I was about ready to give up and get the expensive flea treatments at the vet when I tried giving my dog tablets of Capguard. The next day all the fleas on her were gone and my puppy could finally relax for a while.
Killing the fleas on your dog is only 10% of the battle, I still had a huge amount of fleas/eggs/larvae living in the carpeting. Read anywhere on the internet and they will tell you to vacuum every day until they're gone. I tried that but the fleas would always regroup in seemingly greater numbers. I tried other solutions too like diatomaceous earth and flea sprays which also had no impact on the fleas. The only solution to cleansing my apartment of fleas was to start my dog on a Capguard regiment. The pill only works for about a day so I started giving my dog a new pill every 3 days with dinner. I chose 3 days since I believe it takes about 3 days for a flea to start producing eggs after feeding and I wanted them to be dead before being able to reproduce. After about a month the flea numbers were greatly reduced, in two months they appeared to be gone. At that point I reduced the frequency of the medication to once a week or so in case my dog picks up more fleas outside.
The active ingredient in Capguard is Nitenpyram, the same ingredient in Capstar which costs about $10 more than Capguard. There is no reason to get Capstar; it doesn't work any better and you are probably going to have to buy several boxes of this stuff so you might as well save some money.
I tried to first give my cats the pills mixed in some wet food. They kept spitting them out. So I took away their food for a while so they would be hungry, crushed it up, and mixed it with a teaspoon of food. Giving it that way, they took it with no problem.
My cats are short haired, and have a lot of light fur on their faces. I could see the fleas all over their heads, and faces from 3 feet away. It was disgusting. I didnt even want to pet them... Within a couple hours i noticed them scratching less. I gave it to them around 2 pm, by 430 pm i noticed the fleas on their face and heads were gone. This morning I couldn't find a single flea!
I know the pills dont work for eggs and larve, so i did get drops to put on them around the 24 hour later mark. I have a second pill for them, im going to give them in about a week if need be. I desperately hope this takes care of the problem. Im tired of kicking my cats off the bed, because i dont want bugs on me. I feel like they think I love them less. (Which I love my cats, not the fleas).
Im goimg to buy another box of the pills to keep around just incase.
