Details

Contains natural pyrethrins to immediately kill adult Fleas, Ticks and Lice, plus Precor IGR, an insect growth regulator that targets the egg and larval stages of development for 63 days after application. Approved for use on dogs, cats, puppies and kittens (Not to be used on puppies and kittens under 12 weeks of age). The mobility of dogs and cats makes it difficult to treat all potential areas of flea infestation. So it's important to consider a flea control formulation that goes where they do - especially one that targets pre-adult fleas, the source of reinfestations.

FOR DOGS AND CATS

FOR FLEAS:

A light even coverage of the hair coat will provide effective flea control. For best penetration, ruffle the coat while spraying against the natural lay of the hair. Cover animal's eyes with hand. With a firm fast stroke, spray head, ears, and chest. With cloth, rub into face around mouth, nose, and eyes. Then spray the neck, middle and hind quarters, finishing with legs and tail last. Avoid spraying rectum and genitals. Apply at the rate of 1 or 2 squeezes of the trigger sprayer per pound of body weight. For larger dogs, spray until damp, not saturated. Do not allow animals, cats in particular, to become chilled. Repeat every two months, if necessary.

FOR TICKS:

Make sure spray thoroughly wets individual ticks.

FOR PUPPIES AND KITTENS

FOR FLEAS:

Leaving the eyes, nose, and mouth exposed, treat puppies and kittens weighing less than three pounds by wrapping the animal in a towel that has been lightly sprayed with PETCOR® Flea Spray, for 5 to 10 minutes. Or lightly spray a brush or cotton ball and work thoroughly into the hair coat. Fleas may then be removed from the coat by picking or combing. Puppies and kittens over three pounds may be treated the same as dogs and cats as described above. Repeat every two months, if necessary. Do not allow animal to become chilled. Do not use on puppies and kittens under 12 weeks of age. Consult a veterinarian before using this product on debilitated, aged, pregnant, nursing, or animals on medication.

    Petcor is the absolute best

    By Roxanne on 05/20/2009

    I have been fighting with fleas on my 4 lb Yorkie for a year. I treat the house with Conquer; I treat the yard with Talstar; I have used Advantix and Frontline Plus religiously every month and sometimes twice a month. Nothing works. Poor little girl has had more baths in an attempt to drown the fleas. I pick through her a couple times of day trying to free her of fleas. She scratches so much, her hair is broken off, especially on her face. The DIY Pest control place told me to try Petcor Flea Spray. As soon as a couple little spritzes hit Angel, I could see the fleas scrambling to her head, eyes and nose area. That was two days ago and I have not seen a flea since. Angel is no longer scratching herself. Her big brown eyes look at me saying, "oh mommy, thank you so much for making me so comfortable."

    Petcor

    By William on 01/05/2009

    I used to work for a very large pest control company. We issued Petcor Flea Spray to all our flea customers, and I used it on my own pets. This is by far, the absolute best treatment for fleas that you can apply yourself. And for the price, you can't beat it! Get a professional result at a do-it-yourself price!

    good stuff, however...

    By Joanna on 08/09/2011

    Verified Purchase

    I have three cats and two of them reacted pretty good with this spray. It got rid of most of the fleas right away, need to keep applying ever week but for the most part, pretty good. My third, however, had that allergic reaction that they warn you about. She was drooling, ear and paw twitches, it was scary. This lasted a few days. At least they warn you that it is harmless (didn't look it) and temporary. I know it's not meant for other then pets but I found it worked really well spraying directly on carpets.

    Finally something worked

    By Jon on 08/22/2010

    Verified Purchase

    Must read and follow instructions. Has a very strong odor at first so you will be inclined to use less, however after it dries the smell goes away. I used it but did not apply enough.

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
Doesn't spraying Petcor Flea Spray on a cat cause problems since cats are constantly cleaning themselves?
A
No.  Petcor Flea Spray is only a contact kill and does not leave a residual for any long period of time.  Also, this product uses pyrethrin to kill the fleas, which is a natural plant extract from the chrysanthemum plant.  It is not any more harmful than the flowers and bugs most cats eat in the backyard already.

Q
Can I use Petcor if I have already applied Frontline Plus to my dog?

Also, if I use Ultracide indoors, what should I use outdoors (concrete & wood deck)?

A
Yes, Petcor Flea Spray can be applied after Frontline or Advantage.  This is because Petcor is a contact kill only and is for immediate results.  Petcor will kill on contact but will not protect long term like Frontline or Advantage, so you can use the Petcor as needed.  Ultracide is a great choice for indoor use.  For outdoor use we recommend using a combination of Conquer and Archer IGR together in the same one gallon hand pump sprayer.  They provide a great one, two punch and is our most popular sellers for outside flea control.

Q
What order do I treat?

I have ordered the Petcor spray and the indoor flea kit. Should I treat one room and then put the cats in that room, then treat the rest of the house? What are your suggestions?

A
It really will not matter what order you do the treatment in as long as you do the treatments on the same day. Any adult fleas that jump off of the cats will come in contact with the deposits of the Ultracide and the Flea Stoppers within short order. The cats must be out of the area while you apply the Ultracide but can return as soon as the application is dry.

Q
Do fleas continue to die once Petcor Flea Spray dries?

After I sprayed my dog I noticed fleas were still alive around his rear. Does Petcor continue to work after it dries or do I need to spray again so soon because some fleas did not die?

A

Yes, Petcor Flea Spray does keep working after it has dried. Petcor will kill adult Fleas on contact, but continues to protect by preventing flea eggs from hatching for up to 30 days. You should continue to apply as needed to kill adult fleas found on your pet.
