7. How can I get rid of pre-existing fleas?

PROGRAM® (lufenuron) Flavor Tabs® do not kill adult fleas, so if there are already fleas on your dog or in your home, it may take a few weeks for these fleas to die off. Rest assured, PROGRAM Flavor Tabs are working, and the fleas on your dog will not successfully reproduce. Laboratory studies have shown that PROGRAM Flavor Tabs can be used safely with CAPSTAR® (nitenpyram) which kills adult fleas. For full product information, see product label.
