Flea problem, Capstar to the Rescue

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you are all having a great weekend. I am busy planning Joanie and Sammy’s birthday party. I can’t believe they are going to be 9-I guess that is because I didn’t get them until they were almost 5. I wish I had them all along as they are such sweeties.

Today is product day and as you all know we battled the fleas this summer. When Frontline didn’t work we went on to Simple Guard which was great. One other item that was amazing was Capstar which is a pill that once taken will kill all fleas on the cat for 30 minutes. I was amazed at how well it worked, 2 of our cats had the biggest infestations and you could see the flea corpses falling off them. I think this is great for a start because it takes a little time for topical products to kick in. Capstar is safe to use every day, but I only used it once. Here is the technical info: http://www.capstar.novartis.us/ . It is a little pricey at $12 a pill, but very worth it to kill those little suckers.

Enjoy the rest of your day. Phoebe will be writing the blog tomorrow. 007
