How to Apply

1. Remove product applicator from the package

2. Separate one applicator from the others. Hold the applicator 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.

3. Part the cat’s hair and place the tip of the applicator behind the neck and between the shoulders. Ensure that the entire application of this product is contained in a single spot on the cat’s skin. Be sure to squeeze the applicator thoroughly so that the entire contents are applied.

Do not apply the product superficially to the cat’s hair. Use only one applicator during each application. Do not touch the area where the application was made until it is dry. Do not allow your cat to ingest this product.

Frequency Of Application

Fleas: According to research studies, adult fleas are killed for up to six weeks following an application of fipronil. If, however, your cat or kitten is susceptible to flea allergy dermatitis, or if you believe there is a risk of reinfestation, apply once every month.

Ticks: Each application kills ticks for one month or longer. For best control of ticks, apply once every month.

Chewing Lice: Each application kills chewing lice for one month or longer. For best control of chewing lice, apply once every month.


Please note that there is no need to reapply following your cat’s exposure to bathing or water immersion, as PETARMOR® For Cats remains effective in those conditions.
