How to Use
Flea populations are more prevalent in the spring when cold temperatures turn warmer, making it a more hospitable climate for parasites. You are more apt to encounter fleas in warm, humid areas. However, because weather patterns are always variable and unpredictable, it is important to use PROGRAM Flavor Tabs all year-round. Give PROGRAM Flavor Tabs oral flea control once a month. Always give PROGRAM with a meal to ensure proper absorption. Make sure all pets in your home are protected against fleas.

Information for Dosing Dogs
The flavored once-a-month tablet that prevents and controls flea populations in dogs.


Be certain the dog consumes the entire tablet or tablets. As an alternative to direct dosing, tablets may be offered in food. Watch the dog closely following dosing to be sure the entire dose has been consumed. If it is not entirely consumed, redose once with the full recommended dose as soon as possible.

Treatment with PROGRAM Flavor Tabs may begin at any time of year. In geographic areas where flea infestations are seasonal, the treatment schedule should begin several weeks prior to the expected onset of infestations. Treatments should continue until the end of “flea season.” If there is risk of exposure to fleas year-round, then treatment should continue the entire year without interruption. Ask your veterinarian for details concerning your geographic area and the most effective treatment schedule for your pet.

The active ingredient of PROGRAM Flavor Tabs is lufenuron, a benzoylphenyl-urea derivative classified as an insect development inhibitor (IDI).

As an insect development inhibitor, PROGRAM Flavor Tabs do not kill adult fleas but effectively and safely control flea populations on your pet by breaking the flea’s life cycle at the egg stage.

PROGRAM Flavor Tabs are labeled for use in dogs and puppies, four weeks of age and older, for the prevention and control of flea populations.

Lufenuron controls flea populations by preventing the development of flea eggs and does not kill adult fleas. You may also need to use a product that kills adult fleas.

PROGRAM Flavor Tabs may be used along with CAPSTAR® (nitenpyram) Tablets to provide a Flea Management System that kills adult fleas and prevents flea eggs from hatching. Please see the Supplemental Package Insert provided with this product for information about using the two products together.

Without concurrent use of an adulticide, adequate flea control may not be achieved in dogs that have repeated exposure to flea infected animals or environments.
