How to Apply

Applying PetArmor® Plus flea and tick protection at home is easy. Just follow these steps each time you use the product.

Before You Apply

Applying correctly starts with purchasing the correct product. Before purchasing, weigh your dog. Don't guess! It is important to know your dog’s exact weight. PetArmor® Plus for Dogs is available in four different weight breaks for dogs and puppies: 5 to 22 pounds, 23 to 44 pounds, 45 to 88 pounds, and 89 to 132 pounds. DO NOT attempt to split doses between dogs.

DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT ON CATS. Be sure to choose dog products for dogs and cat products for cats. These products are different formulations based on the species and your pet’s weight and SHOULD NEVER be used interchangeably. PetArmor® Plus for Cats is available to protect your cat.

Don't forget to consider your dog's age. ONLY use PetArmor® Plus for Dogs on dogs and puppies over 8 weeks of age.

Read the entire label carefully before using any product on your dog. For additional help or more information, our social care team is available to answer your questions Mon-Friday, 8am to 4pm CST. Or you can call us at 1-800-224-7387.

How To ApplyHow To Apply

Applying the Product

  1. Remove product tubes from the package.
  2. Separate one tube from the others.
  3. Hold the tube with notched end pointing up and away from the face and body. Use scissors to cut off the narrow end at the notches along the line.
  4. Invert tube over dog and use open end to part your dog’s hair.
  5. Squeeze the applicator contents in three to four spots from the shoulder blades to midway down your dog’s back until the applicator is empty. Do not apply down to your dog’s tail.
  6. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water.

Keep treated pets apart from each other, other pets and children for 24 hours after treatment and until the product is dry. This helps prevent pets from ingesting the topical by licking or grooming one another.

What does this product protect against?

PetArmor® Plus for Dogs kills adult fleas, flea eggs, flea larvae, ticks, chewing lice and prevents the development of flea pupae. It controls mites that may cause sarcoptic mange and kills deer ticks that can transmit Lyme disease. It also kills brown dog ticks, American dog ticks, and lone star ticks and prevents flea reinfestations for four weeks.

How long will it take for PetArmor® Plus for Dogs to begin to work?

The product starts killing fleas and ticks within 24 hours and may take as long as 48 hours.

Can I apply PetArmor® Plus for Dogs right after I bathe my dog?

No. Make sure that your dog is completely dry before applying the product. It is best to wait 12 hours to assure that your dog is completely dry prior to application.

How often can I apply PetArmor® Plus for Dogs?

You should not reapply the product any more often than once every four weeks.

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.

Does PetArmor® Plus for Dogs have an expiration date? What is the shelf life of the product?

When properly stored and under ideal conditions, the product has a three-year shelf life. If there has been a variance in temperature (extreme heat for example), it may reduce the effectiveness of the product. Be sure to store the product in a cool (below 77°F/25°C) dry place inaccessible to children and pets. Do not refrigerate and protect from direct sunlight.

Who do I contact if I have additional questions?
