Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work So far I am on my 3rd application in as many weeks and my kitty STILL has fleas. We found a 2 fleas on her and bought Pet Armor the next day and did the first application. This stuff just doesn't seem to work at all, so now I am back on here looking for something new to try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does a Great Job-Dogs are Flea-Free We use PetArmor which kills fleas on contact, in combination with Sentinel or Sentinel Spectrum which kills flea eggs (besides being a heartworm preventive). We give the Sentinel pill once a month and apply the PetArmor every six weeks to our two dogs. It is important to start applying the PetArmor in the early Spring, in March, so the fleas don't get a head-start and continue applying PetArmor until the Fall. We do not use PetArmor PLUS because SENTINEL already has the ingredient that kills the flea eggs. Despite some poor reviews we've seen on the use of fipronil in PetArmor, we decided to try this combination and it works perfectly for us. We have not treated our lawn nor do we need to use flea baths. Highly recommended, no allergic reactions seen in our dogs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn’t work!! My dog was tearing himself up with the flea irritation so after flea baths and bombing the house I got him Pet Armore and it hasn’t done anything. He’s the same. I regret wasting my money on it. I only chose it bc it was cheaper than Frontline plus by 15 bucks. Now I wish I would have just spent the $36.00 for frontline plus bc I’ve used it before and it was great. Don’t be cheap, just get the frontline and be done with it.

Questions

while Advantage II is wearing through a 30 day dose for my two 10 lb cats, is is safe to use PetArmor along with it to manage ticks? Active ingredients of Advantage II are Imidacloprid and Pryipoxyfen

Asked by: BKate
Thank you for your question. It is not recommended to use both medications simultaneously as it is a bit too much medication. PetArmor kills fleas and ticks, but it also kills chewing lice and controls mites that may cause sarcoptic mange.

Nursing mother cat

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.

What is PetArmor - Generic To Frontline Top Spot?

As seen on TV, PetArmor® is a flea and tick preventative that works just like Frontline® Top Spot®. It contains the same active ingredient, fipronil, as Frontline® Top Spot® and protects pets for 30 days against pesky fleas and ticks. 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.

For:

Dogs and puppies (8 weeks of age and older), Cats and kittens (8 weeks of age and older)

Benefits:

  • Kills adult fleas and chewing lice just like Frontline® Top Spot®
  • Kills 4 different types of ticks including the Deer tick which can carry Lyme disease
  • Each application provides 30 days of protection
  • Controls mites that may cause sarcoptic mange
  • Easy-to-use, squeeze on application
  • Specifically formulated for your pet's weight
  • Waterproof

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.

Cautions:

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.

Brand Name:

PetArmor

Generic Name:

fipronil
