Petcor Flea Spray contains Precor IGR, an insect growth regulator that targets fleas in the egg and larval stages of development. As a result, pre-adult fleas cannot produce new infestations of breeding, biting adults.
Tips: Each bottle contains about 120 pump sprays. Use 1 to 2 pumps per pound that your pet weighs. Start at the head and work your way back to the tail rubbing it in as you go.
|Active Ingredient:||natural Pyrethrins plus Precor IGR|
|Target pests:||Fleas, ticks, and lice
Kills flea eggs for 2 weeks and adults for 1 week
|For use in:||Dogs, Cats, Puppies and Kittens over 12 weeks of age
* Use Weekly if Pet is Infected
* For preventive use, spray every 2 months
|Application:||Use 1 to 2 pumps per pound that your pet weighs.
* Start at the head and work your way back to the tail rubbing it in as you go.
* Pets under 10 pounds, wet a towel or cloth and rub it into the fur of the pet rather than spraying them directly.
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.
|Shelf Life:||3 Years|
|Manufactured By:||Zoecon (UPC: 041535375409)|
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
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.
Make sure spray thoroughly wets individual ticks.
FOR PUPPIES AND KITTENS
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 in Orlando, FL 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."

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!

Finally something worked
By Jon in Arcadia, IN on 08/22/2010
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.

good stuff, however...
By Joanna in shelton ct on 08/09/2011
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.

Better than most
By Joe in Ocala FL on 06/08/2010
Petcor has excellent knock down on fleas but not the residual action as claimed on the bottle
Perfect for All our Pets
By Jamie in Wellston, OK on 03/26/2016
This is the only product - from the vet or wherever that we've found to be effective and reliable every time. A professional exterminator told me this and Precor2000 along with vacuuming is what he uses to rid a home of fleas and sold me it the first time I purchased both products. Best exterminator call I've ever had. It did make our older dog have a drippy nose before she passed away but I assumed it was the strong smell - that dissipates when dry - the drippy nose went away as soon as the smell did. Kills fleas on contact. And we've never had a pet with a tick when we've used this product. When you follow the label directions - it's effective for cats and dogs alike.
By Chris in Ft Pierce, FL on 02/19/2016
Wow this is the real deal - instant death to fleas. After a few months relocating to South Florida our 2 dawgs were infested w/fleas, we spent hundreds on many products to get ZERO results. We even resulted to living in a dust bowl with diatomaceous earth everywhere. When applying Petcor to our Lab & the fleas were falling off like crazy I completed spaying the dogs as directed. The next morning I used the flea comb & was blown away by the results. Normally I spend an hour combing & still couldn't get a clean comb. I spent 5 mins combing & couldn't find a flea! Thank You GOD! This site has been VERY informative & helpful. We purchased the indoor - outdoor flea kit and have been following it step-by-step! Understanding this is not an overnight process, I'm optimistic for a positive outcome due to the reaction so far. Ill post an update in 1-2 mths if things turn negative.

tried it all
By Kate in long island ny on 11/04/2015
My older dog never had fleas, not once, but he caught them late in summer. I was told these fleas going around out area were "super fleas" immune to basically everything. Hard to get under control. After capstar, tons of other sprays, bombing the house twice, and treating the large yard with products containing IGR, they were still around. I googled out of desperation, since the vet AND exterminator came up with nothing, and found a person recommending this who had a similar problem. I purchased the Alpine Flea Insecticide Aerosol for a two step approach, as he recommended and it finally worked! Anyone with a flea problem should purchase this immediately skip all the sprays at petco etc. Also shipped really fast, and great pricing
I used the spray
By Kelly in Mechanicsville, MD on 10/16/2015
I used it on my dogs 3 different times and worked it into their coat and I still have fleas.
Did you treat the outdoor and indoor areas that the pets frequent? Please let us know so we can help you troubleshoot the flea infestation treatment!
By Holly in Fallbrook, ca on 09/30/2015
You'll never find anything in a store that will kill fleas......just this! Everything I the store just gives them a headache....you have to get quality products. Which usually means on-line. That's okay with me if it kills fleas!

From itching to resting in 30 minutes
By Steve in Middleport, NY on 09/16/2015
I prefer not to use topical flea control on our 9 year old Shih Tzu, since she is hyper and seems uncomfortable for up to 10 hrs after I apply the liquid to her neck. I was told her breed is very sensitive to those medications anyway. I tried almost every possible natural method of getting rid of fleas and nothing really worked. I read much about Petcor flea spray and decided it sounded safe and 90% of reviews said it was also very effective. Within 2 minutes of spraying her outside on a sunny day (smells like rubbing alcohol for 1-2 minutes then vanishes), I counted at least 8 fleas coming out of her fur. I washed her 2 days ago at 3am because the both of us couldn't sleep due to her scratching, and felt I got most of the fleas off her then. WRONG! One hour after the Petcor spray, she was playing with her favorite toy inside, then resting comfortably in her bed after dinner. I am sold! It literally is worth every penny to give us the relief from fleas. We stay off nature trails until our first freeze to avoid ticks, so fleas were our only concern. I applied the Precor 2000 indoor spray Monday in efforts to get this finally under control. All signs point to success!!

QDoesn't spraying Petcor Flea Spray on a cat cause problems since cats are constantly cleaning themselves?
ANo. 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.
QCan 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)?
AYes, 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.
QWhat 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?
AIt 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.

QHow soon after applying Petcor Flea spray can I bath my dog?
AThe dog should be bathed prior to application of Petcor but you can give the dog a bath as early as a week after you apply the product if needed.

QI have a feral cat that I'm unable to touch. Can I safely use Petcor on her bedding to kill fleas there?

QCan Petcor kill sand flies?
Sand flies are attacking my dogs. I need to know if I spray Petcor directly on sand flies, will they die?
A Petcor Flea Spray is only labeled to kill fleas, ticks, and lice. It does contain natural Pyrethrins, which is a non-selective insecticide, so it will likely kill other insects on contact. Another option is Wondercide Flea and Tick Control for Pets and Home, which will kill most pests on contact and can be used daily.

QDo 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.

QHow long after spraying my dog with Petcor, can the kids play with him?

QCan Petcor Flea Spray be used on carpets?
A Petcor would not be the appropriate product to use on carpets or furniture for flea control as Petcor is specifically for applications directly to the pets themselves. If you wanted a product to treat carpets you could go with either Precor 2000 Plus, or the products in our Indoor Flea Kit.

QPetcor on pet's bedding
Why do you recommend Ultracide instead of PEtcor 2000 for treating your home and pet bedding?
APetcor is specifically for your PET, not the belongings in your home. It's formulated for use directly on pet skin to control the fleas and help kill any in conjunction with your flea topicals like Frontline. Ultracide is not for use on pets at all but is for use on flooring and pet bedding and has the quickest knockdown of fleas in the home compared to some of the other flea aerosols like it we carry.

QI just got the Petcor, what I want to know is can I bathe my cat first with a flea shampoo?
and then spray him with the Petcor or will that be to much. She has been scratching and made herself bleed so I want to clean her up.
AYes, you would want to bathe your pet before applying the Petcor Flea Spray to get as many fleas off of her as possible. When applying Petcor to cats, its often advised to spray the product on a towel first and then rub down the cat with the towel to get it on its body and fur.

QCan fleas kill dogs?
A While there is no evidence that dogs have died from flea bites, they can make your pet very uncomfortable. Fleas can be a source of disease and irritation for pets, since they scratch constantly while infested, roughing up their coats and causing sores. Animals can develop an allergy to these bites, which can cause an extreme reaction. Some fleas can transmit diseases if they have been feeding on infected rats and can also carry tapeworms.

QCan humans get fleas from dogs?
AHumans cannot necessarily get fleas from dogs. Humans can get bitten by the fleas that are carried by pets. We recommend to apply Petcor Flea Spray to the dogs as labeled and them use our Indoor/Outdoor flea kit to eliminate the flea issue.

QChrysanthemums (and the pyrethrins they produce) are toxic to cats
Disappointed and surprised your website doesn't state this, or at least clarify that their is a risk for cats when using any pyrethrin.
A According to the product label for Petcor Flea Spray, it does say that some cats may be sensitive to products containing pyrethrins. Excessive salvation and ear and paw flicking may occur; however, these effects are temporary and not harmful. May cause dermal sensitization (skin allergy). If there are concerns about using certain products, we would recommend reading the product label in full and/or contacting a veterinarian.

QPetcor for Mites / Mange control?
I haved used Petcor for fleas and it does work. I was wondering if it would help control mites and the mange that goes along with the mites.
AUnfortunately, Petcor Flea Spray is not labeled to kill or control mites or mange. We would recommend Martins Flea, Tick and Mange Dip because it provides contact and residual control for mites and mange for up to 4 weeks. Please refer to the Martins Flea, Tick and Mange Dip product label for specific instructions for use.
