What is Capstar?

Is it a holistic flea medication?
Does it get good results for those who use it?
Is it regulated or is it something that people use and pass on by word of mouth without any real studies done on it?

I really hate putting a pesticide on my dog, but I haven't heard of anything that even comes close to keeping fleas and ticks away other than the well known flea treatments?

I don't think so--not since my *modern medicine* vet advertises for it.

I was looking into natural fleas treatments not long ago--some solutions shown to me were garlic (which is perfectly fine in smalls amounts), cedar oil spray, and at the health food store, a flea/skin shampoo for pets made from all natural ingredients. It was called "Neem". Just be sure to read up on it before going a certain route.
