Welcome to this Pet Protector review. (Updated 15/7/2021)
We all love our pets and the last thing we want is to risk their health or even their lives on products that include chemicals that are supposed to help.
Pet Protector is a unique product that promises to protect your Pet from parasites, through what science calls scalar waves which according to the company is a safe non-chemical solution.
If indeed just by adding a disk to the collar works, then they are onto something really big.
Is there enough documentation or scientific evidence to prove that this product in fact works or is it all baloney?
There is a business opportunity that may be of interest and we will be going into that a little later.
I’m sure you have come across some Pet Protector reviews, but what you will find is that most of these will be from Pet Protector distributors trying to recruit you into their team.
However, we are not associated with Pet Protector and what you will get is a totally unbiased review so that you can decide on your own terms.
So let’s dive in and see if this product is as good as they say it is.

Summary: Our pets are very important to us and are a part of our families and therefore we should want the best when we are talking about products that we treat our pets with.
There are so many cheap badly manufactured products on the markets and most of us just don’t pay that much attention to them.
The chemicals can cause more harm than good and cheap has never been the option.
That’s why when products like Pet Protector come onto the market many people are sceptical, especially when there is a business opportunity attached.

Check out this short promotional video.
Who is Steven Williams JR
The Goldstar Company, which owns the product Pet Protector was founded by Steven Williams JR.
As the story goes…
His beloved dog died as a result of poisoning due to an anti-flea product, and whilst many of these products are still sold today, they were the only products available back then.
In fact, his dog died of liver poisoning due to the chemicals that were in the anti-flea product.
Stevens concern was such that he started to work on a solution to this problem, investigating the effects of scalar waves on humans and animals alike, which brought together scientists from Spain, Switzerland and Germany.
It took around 3 years to come up with a solution costing several million dollars and a few years later Pet Protector came to market.
Is Pet Protector a Pyramid Scheme?
Unfortunately with any MLM business the term pyramid scheme always crops up so let’s get that out of the way.
Let’s take a look at just what a pyramid scheme is.
The term pyramid scheme is given to a business where the members or affiliates are paid solely for recruiting others into the scheme without any product or service to show.
Pet Protector is definitely not a pyramid scheme because it is possible to make money by selling the disks to consumers without recruiting.
However, if you were to join a business opportunity like the one at Pet Protector and wanted to make a living, then recruiting others into your team would be high on your list of priorities.
Straight out and out pyramid schemes pretty much do not exist nowadays, and the term used a lot today is “a pyramid in disguise”.
A pyramid in disguise is just how it sounds, where a company would hide behind a product or service that had very little value or no value at all, whilst the emphasis would still be on recruiting.
This, unfortunately, is how many MLMs operate today but with Pet Protector, we see a product that many people do want.
Let’s look at the Pet Protector Products
Well, actually there is only one product.
This is a product that initially took 3 years to develop with scientists from several other countries.
Pet Protector manufactures and markets a metal disk that you place on the pet’s collar, and is supposed to protect the animal for up to 4 years from nasty parasites, such as mosquitoes, fleas and ticks.
Apparently, the animal has to be free of all parasites before attaching the disk.
According to their website, they claim to have helped over 50 million customers throughout the world.

The Pet Protector Disk Itself!
Made from a high-quality steel alloy that is charged with a combination of magnetic and scalar waves which is supposed to be triggered by the animals own energetic fields.
Nicola Tesla said that the universe was made up of magnetic and Scalar energy which in its lowest form is energy. This came to light over 100 years ago.
If you can find the right frequencies then a combination of Scalar and Magnetic energies combined (which is what we see here) with the animal’s energy field may well be able to protect it from certain elements.
That been said, scientific studies in this particular field are somewhat lacking.
Pet Protector claim that their disks are the greatest discovery to come out of the pet care industry.
According to Goldstar, who owns Pet Protector the disk is 96.67% effective, has no adverse effects and with no use of chemicals is 100% safe for your pets, humans and the environment.
Small studies covering a 4 year period, from 2011 – 2013 were carried out involving 22 animals, 88 in total in…
- Argentina – 97.12%
- US, California – 97.35%
- Spain – 96.06%
- Australia – 96.13%
Some of the animals did end up with parasites over that period which is understandable because it ain’t going to stop all, 100% of the time.
What is interesting to note is the lack of testing by a 3rd party with a limited study that can be found on the Pet Protector website here.
The disks sell for $73.40 which includes shipping costs.
Pet Protector disks are claimed to…
- Repel and protect from Fleas, Ticks and Mosquitos
- Boost the immune system
- Raise your pets energy levels
- Improve your pets blood circulation

Pet Protector Business Opportunity – What you need to know
Like all MLM business opportunities, there is a compensation plan which dictates how the affiliate or distributor is paid and we shall be discussing this further in this section.
How to become a Pet Protector Distributor
There are currently 3 different memberships that are available to become a Pet Protector Distributor.

Remember, if you do decide to become a distributor and join the option 1 or 2 package, there are limitations on the amount you can earn.
There is no point in working your butt off if you joined option 1 when the monthly commission is capped at $1,000.
Just think if you managed to sell 100 disks which would amount to £7,344.00, you’d be losing a large chunk of the commission.
How to Make Money with Pet Protector
There are 2 ways that you can make money through this business opportunity.
- Sell the products yourself and make a commission on the sale.
- Recruit others into the business who’ll become part of your team and make a commission on what they sell.
You are given an identical website to promote the product that everybody gets but just what you are allowed to change is unclear.
There are many ways to market the product to your prospective customers and one way that I have seen on their website is to use Facebook and create a Facebook Page.
This method is not something I would advise. You might pick up the odd person who might be interested, but you’ll spend far too much time messaging people and getting nowhere.
I can recommend a training platform that would teach you all about marketing and if you are interested then you can read a review I wrote here.
Check out the Pet Protector Compensation Plan
Are Pet Protector Distributors actually making money?
This is always a difficult one to answer as MLMs tends to hide this information and for obvious reasons too.
Since it is a known fact that only around .22% actually make any real money, then any income disclosure would highlight this and not something that they want broadcasting.
That said, between 50 and 70 per cent of distributors do not stay around long enough to see in their 2nd year.
We are not trying to scare you away, they are the true facts.
What others say about Pet Protector
I’m a little surprised that we couldn’t find a whole bunch of reviews coming from satisfied customers.
After all, there are supposed to be over 50 million customers worldwide that are using this product.
There’s an interesting Facebook page which you can check out here
If you are new to network marketing then you might like to watch this 30-minute video which could save you a lot of time, money and headaches.
What we liked about Pet Protector
I have to assume that what they are saying may well be correct but I don’t see enough trials done on the product so until that day comes I have to reserve judgement
- That it uses energy
I mentioned earlier that the universe in its truest form is just pure energy. It is everywhere and has intelligence, which many just will not believe.
Any health condition that we endure is caused by bad energy and all you have to do is replace the bad with the good.
- There is a 100% money-back guarantee
This is always good and gives you confidence in the product
- Over 50 million worldwide are happy customers
If this figure is correct then it does sound promising.
However, according to the PFMA(Pet Food Manufacturers Association) in 2017, there were 57 million pets worldwide.
Would seem a little on the low side considering there are 8 billion on the planet.
What we don’t like about Pet Protector
You can have the best product on the planet but if you can’t sell it what do you have? For sure you don’t have a business.
- MLM’s are a tough cookie to crack
The real money earned in any MLM is in the top 1%.
Sorry but that is a reality.
Check out what the Federal Trade Commission has to say here.
- Paid Advertising or PPC (Pay-Per-click)
One of the biggest hurdles you are going to find if you are new to all this is how to get customers to your website.
The quickest way is to pay for traffic, but unless you know what you are doing this can be very expensive and with no guarantees that you will get a sale or any interest for that matter.
- This business doesn’t belong to you
A hard one to swallow, but what happens if/when the business closed down?
MLMs are closing down all the time and that would mean your business would close as well.
Wouldn’t it make more sense to build your own business?
- Where are the customer reviews?
For a customer base of over 50 million, I would have thought they would be reviews all over the internet, but they aren’t.
Is Pet Protector a SCAM?
Pet Protector is not a scam.
They manufacture and sell a product that according to their website, has been well received by over 50 million customers worldwide.
Now if that was true then where are all the customer reviews and why aren’t these customers shouting from the rooftops?
Ok, you can find a few reviews here and there but these are from Pet Protector distributors, not real customers.
I have concerns about the lack of scientific trials. What do you think, trials on a total of 88 animals in 4 countries over a 4 year period? Is that enough?
There is a business opportunity but one that I wouldn’t recommend as everything is based on just 1 product.
Is Pet Protector a Worthy Business to get involved with?
Well, is there a business here and is it something you’d be prepared to take on given the facts are there for everyone to see?
- The top 1% is where all the money goes.
- 99% of affiliates who join an MLM do not earn enough to replace a 9-5 job.
- Most distributors will end up losing money.
- 50 – 70 per cent of members will leave in their first year.
Would you say that a study with 88 animals in 4 countries over 4 years was enough to convince pet owners that this product did what was said on the label?
Like most MLMs, the compensation plan is set as a pay to play!
The more you pay for the membership the more you earn, but the commission rates should always be determined by the sales performance and not how much someone is prepared to pay to join the business.
MLMs for me just don’t do it, I have tried them in the past and made absolutely nothing.
How we make a living online if you are Interested
If it’s an online business that you are still looking for then have you not considered affiliate marketing?
This was the method we turned to after a couple of years of trying to make it work with multi-level marketing.
- Don’t have to recruit
- Don’t have to put up with your sponsor
- Don’t have to go to events which is what you will be expected to do
- Don’t have to purchase any stocks
- Don’t handle customer orders
- Don’t handle shipping
- Don’t handle returns
- Can market any product or service you like
- This is your business which an MLM business isn’t
If you are looking for a cost-effective way that isn’t going to break the bank then I would seriously consider Wealthy Affiliate or at least check them out.
A fully integrated training platform where everything is under one roof which I would recommend above all others, and personally have had nothing but a positive experience with it.
Here you can join and check out the system for FREE, with no credit card details. If it isn’t for you then just walk away, but you won’t know until you have tried!

6 thoughts on “Is Pet Protector a Scam? A Non Chemical Solution for our Beloved Pets but do these Disks Actually Work?”
I think I would like to try out Pet Protector. I like that it doesn’t have any chemicals and I find it interesting that it uses solar waves. There isn’t much danger of ticks and fleas where I live, because I live in an isolated place and my dogs are not exposed to other dogs, but in the summer there may be a few stray ticks climbing up on my dogs, and I usually get them preventive pills. I would like to give Pet Protector a try, just the product, but I would not join the MLM. I don’t like MLMs and the only thing I am a little apprehensive of is that if I buy the product for my dogs, that this company might spam me with requests to join them as an MLM representative, as one of the people in the complaints pointed out.
I think if there were over 50 million customers like I mention in the review then there would be reviews all over the internet.
Thank you for your comment.
It’s tough to make money with any MLM company these days. Only one of my friends climbed up the ranking ladder to sit on higher levels to earn commissions from recruitments and the group sales. I felt shocked that we could not find many positive reviews on Pet Protector’s products online considering the 50 million customers…This makes me skeptical about their bold claims.
Your recommendation, affiliate marketing, is a better method to make money online, so I will take some time to check the platform that you share. 🙂
Thanks for sharing,
Hey Matt, thank you for stopping by.
MLM’s offer business opportunities which are not based on truth’s because if they were people just wouldn’t go anywhere near them.
I tried a couple myself only because I was lied to and earned absolutely nothing.
I was glad I did invest time in researching affiliate marketing but more important was finding the right training platform and for me, that was Wealthy Affiliate.
Thank you for your comment
Total scam. I be been giving my dog antiflea pills and I stopped giving him since I put on him pet protector . Few days later he got fleas ! I emailed the company twice asking for return and never heard back. Very disappointed.
Sorry to hear about your experience with Pet Protector and thank you for sharing this with us.
We have come across a few instances where this very same thing has happened and it is unfortunate that customer support has not been forthcoming with your complaint.
I hope your interest in Pet Protector wasn’t for the business side because there really isn’t one.
Thank you for your comment.
