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!

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.

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.

PetCor Flea Spray Routine That Works.
By Jc in Onalaska, Texas on 05/26/2014
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

petcor flea spray and flea home kit
By Anonymous in mccaysville, ga on 06/24/2013
I have been having a lot of trouble getting rid of the fleas on my 4 lb Yorkie and 2 cats . I have tried shampoo and drops nothing worked they just kept getting worse. As soon as I sprayed my animals with the flea spray I could see all of the fleas start moving and trying to jump off. By the next day I have not seen another flea on my animals or in the house . This is the best product I have ever used well worth the money.

Spray Outside to avoid odor - Works Fast and Well
By John in Orlando, Fl on 03/30/2013
I've used this for several years now and haven't found anything better for fast effective treatment. We live in Orlando, Fl. and with all the squirrels, rats, etc that can come through the yard our dogs get occasional fleas even though they're on a monthly treatment. Petcor does stink though, so we spray the dogs outside and the odor is minimized as it dries quickly. Highly recommend!

Petcor Flea Spray
By Sheri in Moline, IL on 12/21/2011
Works great. I bought this product when I discovered a couple fleas on my 5 lb Chorkie. I use Front-line every month but the last week before his next application I found fleas. It killed them instantly and prevented an infestation in my home. I also sprayed his bed and other places he likes to lay down. I haven't had to use it since but I am glad I have it on hand just in case.

Petcor pet spray
By Thomas in Pittsburgh, PA on 11/26/2011
This product seems to work on our pet, however it doesn't seem to have the lasting power that I hoped for, but of the three products I purchased I think this one is the best.

Petcor Flea Spray
By Nancy in Philadelphia, PA on 08/29/2011
First let me comment on your detailed product descriptions that have allowed me to make smart choices on this site. I am still battling fleas though brought in by my one cat who escapes through the smalles window crack. I'm blaming him. The spray has improved the situation and works better on the cat than other pet treatments I have paid much more money for. However, I still have fleas in the house. I'm going to order one more bottle to see if that does the trick before I take more lethal measures.

Not For My Cats!!!!!
By Angie in Rossville, IL on 08/21/2011
Unless you gave a cat that doesn't mind getting sprayed, I don't recommend this for cats! I suppose it would work better for dogs.

Not the Best Choice for Cats
By Gwen in Galway, NY on 08/08/2011
I'm sure this spray works great if one could use it properly. My two cats were utterly terrified of being sprayed and I had to have someone else hold them down (very firmly) while I tried to spray them as thoroughly as possible. They then quickly proceeded to try licking the stuff off which caused them both to foam at the mouth and flick that foam all over the place. I think it killed the fleas for a day or two, but they were quickly back to digging again (worse than before). Frankly I wouldn't recommend this for cats - I'm sure it works great on dogs though. It was worth a try anyway.

By Jc in Onalaska, Texas on 07/24/2011
Got two containers of Petcor. Used some out of one of the containers on eight of the ten cats here. They didn't like it AT ALL. They all fought it as if in a panic to the point of not being able to effectively finish doing the entire treatment. A number of them salivated effusively after application. The two cats that it was not used on are twenty year old sisters and Petcor is not recommended for elderly felines. Have never had a problem putting flea powder on any of the cats, but there is something about Petcor that absolutely repels these cats. Still, what little DID get on them seemed to help, as they are scratching less than they were before. Probably, if they could be treated entirely, the flea problem would probably be gone.

Have a question about this product?
Ask our product experts...
Ask a Question
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?
12/06/2015 Jeff from Barbabdos
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.

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.
11/15/2014 Angie from Spring Hill Fl
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.

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.

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.

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.
QHow do you administer the Petcor Flea Spray my label is off and I don't remember how?
