As seen on TV, PetArmor® is a flea and tick preventative that works just like Frontline® Top Spot®.

PetArmor® comes in an easy-to-use, squeeze on applicator and is waterproof after 24 hours of application. Not only does PetArmor® kill fleas and ticks, but it also kills chewing lice and controls mites that may cause sarcoptic mange.

How does PetArmor® work?
Just like Frontline® Top Spot®, PetArmor® is specifically formulated to kill fleas and ticks per your pet's weight. So picking the right package is important in getting complete protection for your pet. The main ingredient fipronil, also found in Frontline® Top Spot®, is a broad-spectrum insecticide that disrupts the central nervous system of fleas and ticks. Once PetArmor® is applied, the fipronil spreads by a process called translocation. It is gradually spread by your pet's natural oils, accumulating in the oil glands and absorbed into the hair and skin. It then kills adult fleas and ticks within 24 hours. PetArmor® works best when your pet's skin is in optimal condition.
For external use only. Do not use PetArmor® on Rabbits or other animals. Use only one pipette per application and do not reapply sooner than 4 weeks. Keep out of reach of children.
What is the most important thing I should know about PetArmor®?
PetArmor® provides convenient and effective flea and tick control for dogs and cats, puppies and kittens (over 8 weeks of age). It controls and prevents infestations of adult fleas prior to egg-laying, including fleas that could cause flea allergy dermatitis. It is effective against all stages of the brown dog tick, the American dog tick, lone star tick and deer ticks (the major carrier of Lyme disease). In addition, it eliminates infestations with chewing lice and aids in the control of sarcoptic mange infestations.

Worked for a whileMy dog had been on PetArmor for years, and still he had a case of fleas.
My Vet told me , dogs can get immune to the same flea treatments, and to change brands from time to time.

Works...but not overnightUsed this when we moved to a new house and two of our dogs that were not on Revolution started to get infested with fleas and Adams flea dip alone wasn't getting it done...Used this product and after a week or two the fleas disappeared and I have only had to repeat maybe two times over 8 months as preventative and no fleas....Bottom line, it works, good bang for the buck!

Surprised my catI use to use Revaluation. She hated it , i didn't realize why till i went to pet her. I noticed her neck was hot. It has an alcohol smell so i had asked my vet was the Revaluation burning her. She stated no. That it's just cold going on. Was not the case. She thought when i put the PetArmor that it was going to do the same. It did not. She was soo happy i was showed love all day. I honestly rate this treatment more than 5 stars.

Happy to have tried Pet ArmorMy cat is like a new cat. He had been experiencing seizures prior to applying the flea treatment. Post-flea treatment, NO seizures. He is back to his old self. I did bathe him prior to applying the treatment. I bathed him prior to the 2nd treatment a month later. NO fleas anywhere. What a blessing! My cat is flea free and seizure free.

Works greatTo those of you who are unaware, you cannot apply this to an animal that is ALREADY infested with fleas and then expect them to all die within 24 hours. this product is a PREVENTITIVE, meaning BEFORE fleas are infesting. If your animal has fleas, you need to take other methods like bathing with flea shampoo, a flea dip, bomb your house, vacuum your furniture, etc.
This product works exactly how it's supposed to.
I recently socialized a feral female cat and she had kittens 3 weeks ago. Is this product safe to use on a lactating mother cat? Thank you for your help.
Asked by: Kathryn
Product Info clearly states "PetArmor® is approved for use on breeding, pregnant, or nursing animals." It wld certainly be better than fleas spreading to kittens causing anemia & death if the flea infestation is bad enough
Should I give my dog a good bath before using
Asked by: Tammy
Great question! It is not necessary to bathe your dog before applying PetArmor. However, if you do, make sure your dogs coat is completely dry before applying the medication. Do not bathe your dog for 24-48 hours after applying the medication.
