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.

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!

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."

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.
Spray Outside to avoid odor - Works Fast and Well
By John on March 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!
Excellent Flea Spray
By Kris on December 1, 2012
Pector flea spray is easy to use. You can see the fleas immediately rise to the top or your animals coat as soon as you spray it on them. I like anything that is quick and easy.
Works fast-strong smell-melts nail polish
By Gina on October 11, 2012
i've been fighting fleas since spring and it is now October. we've used all the best topical drops and yet she still has fleas. I even bomb my house using Enforcer (best out there!) and she still gets them Within 10mins of spraying my dog I see a flea moving VERY slow. I dont think i used enough b/c the odor alarmed me- its VERY STRONG but wears off after a few minutes. I'm worried about using this stuff though b/c it melted my nail polish right off. But my dog seems to be ok
By Craig on October 11, 2012
I was able to hold my puppy still enough to get the product on and it worked great. You could see the fleas scrambling to get off and the next day when brushing my short haired pup the remaining dead fleas just fell off. My cat was not interested in being sprayed and I could not hold her tight enough (without hurting her) to change her mind. They suggest spraying a towel and rubbing kittens which may have helped but I figured I would have used half the bottle to get a towel wet enough to work for me. So I am still using conventional flea control for her. I wish there was a better delivery system.
Petcor Flea Spray
By Arnett on October 11, 2012
This product is great! It got rid of my dog fleas fast. I would suggest this product to anyone whose pet that has fleas!!!
By Sammy\'s on October 2, 2012
Within 2 days the fleas were KO'd on the dog...he finally got some relief from an ENTIRE summer of itching/bathing/spraying/etc. with other less effective products. This product is totally worth the money! I followed up with Alpine Flea Insecticide to treat the carpeting throughout the house: vacuum then spray, then wait a day or so and repeat. Then repeat weekly.
The only thing that worked
By Betty on September 30, 2012
The only thing that worked after we tried everything else. Killed live fleas instantly and broke the life cycle.
By Tina on September 21, 2012

Petcor Flea Spray THE BEST
By Joanne on August 24, 2012
All summer, I used either Advantage or Bio-Spot for Dogs or Frontline for Dogs to kill fleas. Nothing worked. I then purchased "Petcor Flea Spray" from your company and I am very pleased to say it worked immediately on my dogs! Fleas were dead/dying before my very eyes. I highly recommend this product for dogs and cats. This is the only product I will use in the future for flea control.
By Donna on July 29, 2012
The spray worked great, but does need using more often than it says it needs. The price is a little high, but so is the price of everything for the flea battle these days. I would use it again and am happy with the not so perfect, but close to results.

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?
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)?
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.
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.
