Re: a couple more questions about flea treatments
I'm not sure I understand why you'd want to use Comfortis and Capstar together since they both work the same way. They're both oral anti-flea medications that kill fleas within hours of taking the pills. Comfortis is good for a month, Capstar for a day. Personally I wouldn't recommend using both at the same time without discusssing it with your vet first.
Neither Comfortis or Capstar kills eggs. I always give the Hooligans Comfortis the first month to kill the fleas then I give them a pill the second month to pick up any stragglers. I don't give them the Comfortis every month, only when they've had a problem with fleas.
