Hello, I'm Dr. Deb. I will do my best to assist you today.
You can actually give your Yorkie his Trifexis at any time even though you've already given him Capstar; you don't have to wait any specific length of time. This latter drug doesn't appear to adversely react with any number of flea and tick products which makes it ideal to use in conjunction with them in treating a current flea infestation.
I hope this helps. Deb
