PetArmorPro Advanced For Dogs Review

PetArmorPro Advanced For Dogs Review


Would you like to find an effective flea and tick spot on for your dog but don’t want to waste your money or your time on an inferior product?

We totally understand where you’re coming from and want to help.

By the end of this article, you’re going to know what’s in PetArmorPro Advanced, what other users are saying about it, and whether or not it’s safe to use on your dog.

Company Claims

PetArmor says that their product offers fast-acting protection for dogs that live in areas heavily infested with fleas and ticks. It’s the product that goes above and beyond to protect your dog even in the worst parasitic conditions. PetArmorPro Advanced kills and repels the following:

  • Fleas
  • Ticks
  • Lice
  • Mosquitoes

Active Ingredients

  • Fipronil
  • Permethrin

How it Works

Fipronil is a neurotoxin that blocks communication channels in the insect’s brain, causing hyperexcitability and eventually death. It’s a good product that’s known to be more water-resistant than other leading ingredients so that it lasts longer.

Permethrin, on the other hand, isn’t such a great product. It’s effective against parasites but harmful to the point of being lethal to cats, aquatic animals, fish and possibly even small or weak dogs.

What Are Users Saying?

As expected, there are toxicity issues with this product though some people report that it works just fine.

Usage Information

As with any spot on, you separate the hair between the shoulder blades and apply the entire packet to the skin. Wait at least 24 hours after applying to bathe your dog and reapply every 30 days.

Product Warnings and Side Effects

As you can imagine, the product warns not to use the product on or around cats. Side effects include excitability, lethargy, loss of bowel control, loss of motor control and vomiting. If your pet exhibits any of these symptoms, contact your vet and bathe your pet in warm, soapy water immediately.

Fipronil may cause some irritation at the application site. If it gets too bad or doesn’t go away within a few days, contact your vet.

The Bottom Line

Because of the risks associated with permethrin, we don’t feel comfortable giving this product a full thumbs up. There are many other safer products out there that work just as well.

    Iapplied pet armor pro to my 8 years old Shitzstzu, on 6/30/3014. A day later she had small seizures, shakings, lethagic, not eating, and looks very weak. I just knew that it had to be the pet armor pro. I gave her a bath but she still is not the playful little dog she used to be. Bought at walmart recently. I am very upset.

    Purchased this product from Wal-Mart six months ago and started using it. Two months after starting it my dog had one of her nipples begin to swell. It got so big that I took her to her vet. He said it may be an infection so he gave her some pills. Nothing happened. It continued to grow and got as large as a male human thumb from the tip to the first knuckle. Took her to another doctor who said that it was a growth with fluid behind it. He was not sure if it was malignant. It was a 50/50 chance. I asked if it could be a side effect from her flea treatment and he said it could be. It does not seem to hurt her but I know she does not feel well sometimes. They do not want to do surgery because of her age, she is 9 years old. I believe it was the flea product that did this. I love her so very much.
