So, your pet is having fleas? Flea issue is indeed a very disturbing and annoying thing for pet owners. Not only these transgressors cause ultimate discomfort and sickness to the pet, but they also are disgusting and can spread diseases to other animals, or even to the human owners. If you find a flea on your dog or cat, you should not compromise and take action immediately, before the issue develops bigger! Right now, Capstar and Frontline Plus are among the most popular solutions for flea issues on pets. While the two products can treat the same problems, you should know that they are very different from each other. Which one is the best choice for your needs?
Capstar is flea control tablets made by Novartis Animal Health, containing Nitenpyram as its active ingredient. Therefore, Capstar is a medication that needs to be consumed orally by your dog or cat. It is available in two sizes; the blue variant is suitable for pets between 2-25 lbs in weight while the green variant is for pets over 25 lbs. Each of the variants is available in 6-count pack and 60-count packs. The tablet can be given to the pet with or without food, and should be given once every 24 hours. It is designed to kill adult fleas only, within 4 hours for dogs and within 6 hours for cats. See also the comparison between Capstar and Sentry Capguard!
Unlike Capstar, Frontline Plus is an ointment medication made by Merial. It has a liquid form in a tube and should be applied in between your pet’s shoulder blades, on the back of the neck. It is waterproof, and each application can last for a month. Frontline Plus is able to kill not only adult fleas, but also flea eggs, sarcoptic mange, and lice. It also treats flea allergy dermatitis, paralysis ticks, and brown dog ticks. Frontline Plus contains fipronil and methoprene as the active ingredients. Frontline Plus is available in 5 variants; the green package is for cats while the rest are for dogs with different weights. You should choose the variant that is the most suitable for your pet’s weight. Each of them is available in various doses, from single dose (1-month supply), three doses (3-month supply), six, and twelve.
