How does PetArmor® work?
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, 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.
