The active ingredient in Capstar is nitenpyram, an insecticide. This oral treatment kills adult fleas quickly. Nitenpyram interferes with nerve transmission in fleas, with no adverse effect on your pet.
Pets may scratch as a result of the fleas dying, but it is a temporary condition and not a reaction to the medication itself.
