Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about Benson. There are no contraindications for using Capstar in a dog with a history of pancreatitis. The drug is considered well tolerated by most pets with few adverse effects. The only listed adverse effect in my drug formulary is that occasionally as fleas die on the pet they may scratch, which should be temporary and is due to the fleas, not the drug. There are no drug interactions listed, and it is considered a very safe medication provided your dog is over 2 pounds in size.
