On this page, we will talk about PetArmor, the pros and cons of the product, the different features of the product and will compare it with other products (like K9 Advantix and Frontline Plus).
You can continue reading to know more about the product but first let us see the guidelines on this page:
It is a flea drop. PetArmor is a popular brand that deters fleas both for dogs and cats. They have various products like the regular PetArmor and the advanced PetArmor Plus for flea treatments. The major ingredient in all PetArmor products is Fipronil (9.70%). PetArmor Plus has an additional ingredient S-Methoprene which is a stronger component, capable of killing pests who survive even after the first application.
The ingredient also kills flea larvae and eggs. The regular PetArmor deters fleas from infestations but PetArmor Plus kills fleas to stop infestations on pets. Obviously, the latter product is a bit costly than the regular one. But since the brand has been popular in the market, PetArmor Plus has survived among the users along with other similar brands because of its cost-effectiveness.
If compared to Frontline, the regular product lacks the flea killing attribute but is a comparatively cheaper product. More or less 50% to 60%of users have given positive reviews, though some users complain that even the fleas are killed after the first application, army of fleas tend to come to the house for further infestations.
PetArmor comes with its advantages and disadvantages. We have listed the ‘good’ and ‘not so good’ factors about the product.
All the flea treatment products are different from each other as each of them has its own attributes. The following are the salient features of PetArmor. Go through them to understand whether the product may or may not work for your kind of flea and tick problem.
The serum comes in small tubes which are easy to apply on the skins of the pets. Part the fur of the animal through the spinal cord and apply the flea drop along with it. The serum will spread all over the skin of the animal and eliminate fleas from the whole body.
When you apply the flea drop on the skin of the pet, the active component of the serum kills the fleas and ticks that reside on the skin and at the same time does not allow pests to infest on the pet’s body. PetArmor Plus is a comparatively stronger product and it disrupts the lifecycle of fleas by killing the larvae and restricting the flea eggs to hatch. Although the product is a bit expensive it is always advisable to use PetArmor Plus if you wish to get rid of the nasty pests totally from your pet’s body.
Similar products like PetArmor are available in the market but if you compare with them, this product is much cheaper. You will provide the same safety measures to your pets at a lower cost if you use this product. Similar products always advise you to check with the veterinarian whereas PetArmor boldly says to use the product without even consulting a veterinarian.
When we assess a particular product we consider 5 essential criteria. They are:
The manufacturer excels in flea drops and serums both for cats and dogs of varied sizes and ages. Most of the users are happy with the product because of its effectiveness and low price compared to other branded big names. Even after that if you are not happy with the product you can visit their website, you will find a dedicated page only on customer care and the money return policy.
The only minus point about PetArmor and PetArmor Plus is a class-action lawsuit filed against Frontline Plus and the manufacturer was forced to recall their products from retail chains some time ago. But as time passed, it seemed no legal formalities took place between the two companies and both the products were soon seen in the retail market simultaneously. Well, this should not bother you about choosing PetArmor for your flea and tick infiltration problem.
Although Fipronil is the active component of all the products of PetArmor but each product according to its criteria has a mix-and-match formula of Fipronil with other ingredients (Even Frontline has its active ingredient Fipronil). As said before the general product is PetArmor and the advanced product is PetArmor Plus.
PetArmor Plus has S-Methoprene in addition to Fipronil, which kills pests who survive the first application along with the flea eggs and larvae. PetArmor, on the other hand, is a flea deterring product and does not kill them. Just for your knowledge, K9 Advantix II for dogs and Advantage II for cats have Imidacloprid as the active component which according to clinical studies stand higher than S-Methoprene or Fipronil.
This product is very easy to apply. But pets get restless if you limit their movements. Apply the product through the spinal cord of the animal after parting the hair on their skin. It is always helpful if you have a partner who can hold on their legs while you apply the serum as they tend to fidget if you hold them tightly.

Children should not be near this product totally and that is why it is advisable to keep the product on higher shelves. The product, if ingested or sprayed on eyes could be dangerous. The same goes for your pets too. Take notice to buy the perfect product according to the age and weight of your pet as a stronger product may cause pain or irritation on the animal’s skin.
More people are happy using the product than the dissatisfied ones. But their reviews make an important role while buying the product. According to us, this product is half effective when compared with similar products. It is better to spend money on a big brand rather than compromising with the cost if fleas and ticks return even after using the product.
The 4 main competitors of PetArmor are:

Marketing a product properly makes it eye-catching for users and PetArmor has been successful in doing that. Frontline Plus is already a reputed product in the market but a slightly higher-priced one. PetArmor has been successful advertising itself as a less costly product than Frontline Plus though having the same ingredients. But to be a cheaper product PetArmor compromise with the quality of the ingredients to match the price and the product sometimes does not interrupt the lifecycle of fleas.
If you are looking for competence, choose a bit pricy product that does not compromise with the quality of the ingredients. On the other hand, if you wish to spend less money on treating the flea infestation on your pets, PetArmor is a perfect product for you. The only difference between Frontline Plus and PetArmor is the variance in the mixture of the functional ingredients. If you choose PetArmor as a flea and tick removing product for your pets, it is always advisable to monitor them after you apply the product. For any negative result consult a veterinarian.
