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. For pets under 10 pounds, you should wet a towel or cloth and rub it in to the fur of your pet rather than spraying them directly. This product will kill adults 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.
|Active Ingredient:||natural Pyrethrins plus Precor IGR|

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 May 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 on August 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 on August 9, 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 on June 8, 2010
Petcor has excellent knock down on fleas but not the residual action as claimed on the bottle
Doing a good job...
By Ana on November 18, 2014
Along with topical Cheristin and food grade diatomaceous earth powdering in fighting a flea infestation in our cats. Even with that we still needed to spray with Flees when we saw a live flea in one of our cats. All is well for the last 2 weeks. Cats don't love being sprayed.
Petcor Flea Spray
By John on September 23, 2014
I tried this spray several times and later used a lot more then recommended. It did not do anything. My pet is a 7 lb. Pom female. I sprayed the yard, cleaned the house and nothing has helped. I got two different flea medications from the vet and give her a bath every other day and she still has fleas. I do not give a single star for Petcor.

Best on the market
By Dixie on September 3, 2014
We have been using Petcor Flea Spray for several years and always keep it on hand in case of an emergency. It has never fail to do a great job. Couple of years ago, my brother-in-law came to visit with his 2 dogs and their fleas. We immediately sprayed the dogs and used the interior spray for his car. He was amazed how quickly it worked. We placed an order for him to take home. Another satisfied customer.

Petcor Flea Spray
By Dee on July 10, 2014
This stuff is amazing. Sprayed my dog around the first of June who lives outside and stays in the woods to keep cool in the day time and I have checked him every day, and not one flea yet. I went ahead and ordered some for my cats and it has done the same for them. Did not really expect it to work, as nothing else I have spent much money on has, but I will continue to use this from now on. I even use it on my rugs and furniture. Shipping was very fast and product arrived in perfect condition. Thank you for your great products and wonderful service. Dee Thacker, Reidsville, N.C.

PetCor Flea Spray Routine That Works.
By JC on May 26, 2014
After having done one cat, there were things that could be done to make the treatment easier for the cat and me. 1. Wear rubber gloves. 2. Have a fan going to disperse the fumes. 3. Do the job on a counter with a basin with water in it. The fleas will drop off of the cat and can be wiped into the water. 4. Spray Petcor onto the cat and ruffle the fur. Do this until no more fleas drop off. It can take an hour or more of ruffling and scritching. 5. When the fleas have stopped dropping off, wrap the cat in a bath towel and ruffle the cat to towlel dry the fur. 6. Take the cat to a confined outdoor area and finish towel drying the fur. 7. I have an enclosed area where the cat can be up on a ledge to dry completely. 8. Stay with the cat for twenty minutes to make sure that it is going to be alright. 9. Check on the cat every fifteen minutes till it is completely dry. 10. Next day, shampoo the cat's fur to get the all the stuff off of its skin. Have done this with five of my cats and they are all doing well. HTH

Being a PMP myself, I have a lot of experience with pesticides.. This product is a good instant killer although the precor is not as effective as it is in a sprayer with temprid. I still reccomend treating with a mixture of precor and demand or precor and temprid to finish the pets living areas.

August 10, 2009Mike asked:
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.
December 17, 2009Cathy asked:
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.
July 6, 2010Denise asked:
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.
October 17, 2013Kellie from Great Falls, Va asked:
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.
November 24, 2013Alice from Santee, Ca asked:
QI have a feral cat that I'm unable to touch. Can I safely use Petcor on her bedding to kill fleas there?
April 8, 2014Tiffany from Houston, Tx asked:
Qmy puppy is a 10 weeks old Lab Mix....Can i use Petcor Flea Spray on him?
we got him stray when he was about 6 weeks old. we are going through the process of getting all of his shots. we did have one tablet of advantage but he is still scratching
May 15, 2012Nolan from Rowlett, Tx 75088 asked:
QIs Petcor flea spray ok to use on my dogs that have seizures?
AWe recommend you check with your pets veterinarian as some dogs that have medical issues can be extremely sensitive to any type of product. We have linked the Petcor MSDS and the Petcor product label for you to share with your vet.
May 10, 2013Monica from Round Rock, Tx asked:
QWhat else can I effectively use for de-Fleaing my cats?
My cats go " crazy" after I apply front-line to them for flea control, is there anything else I could use instead?
AYes, we offer products like Petcor and Prefurred Plus for cats. 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. Prefurred may not be the best option as it contains the same active as the popular Frontline Plus for Cats! Prefurred Plus will start killing fleas and ticks within just one hour after application, and lasts up to one month. This convenient spot application kills emerging adults before they lay eggs. Prefurred Plus for Cats will remain effective even after bathing and exposure to sunlight. Prefurred Plus is for kittens and cats 12 weeks or older. Each box contains 3 treatments for 3 months of protection. Please let us know if you have anymore questions.

QHow do you administer the Petcor Flea Spray my label is off and I don't remember how?
July 27, 2014Bill from Rio Hondo, Tx asked:
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.
July 30, 2014Jennifer from Jackson, Tn asked:
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.

November 4, 2014Mike from Norcross asked:
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.
November 4, 2014Paul from Norcross asked:
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.

November 15, 2014Angie from Spring Hill Fl asked:
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.
