PetArmor® PLUS FOR DOGS MADE MY DOG'S HAIR GREASY AT THE APPLICATION SITE. SHOULD IT DO THIS?Once the product has dried on your dog’s skin, the application site should not appear greasy. However, if some of the product did get caught in your dog’s hair it could cause a greasy appearance. If the dog’s hair still appears greasy 48 hours after application, we would recommend using a wet washcloth or paper towel to wipe the excess product off the fur.
I HAVE A CAT THAT PLAYS CLOSELY WITH AND/OR GROOMS MY DOG. WILL THIS PRODUCT BE OK TO USE?Yes, it is ok to use this product if you have a cat in your home. We DO recommend separating your pets until the product has had a chance to dry for 24-48 hours. This will help to reduce the chance of your cat grooming and ingesting the product off of your dog.

If there has been a variance in temperature (extreme heat for example), it may reduce the effectiveness of the product.

Fleas and ticks can be present all year around, even in colder climates, and can lay dormant for several months before hatching. PetArmor® and the Companion Animal Parasite Council recommend treating your dog each month throughout the year to help prevent flea and tick infestations. Used as directed, PetArmor® Plus can stop infestations and help prevent reinfestation.
Applying PetArmor® Plus flea and tick protection at home is easy. Just follow these steps each time you use the product.
