The main reason this works is that, unlike with most ships, a carrier can avoid skirmishing for the most part, knock down its impulse to 25%, let the pets get in the middle, and fire from several kilometers away.
Until you find a fleet with Tier 5 Science, your best bet for DPS pets will be the Elite Scorpions. If you haven't gotten your New Romulus reputation that high yet, Peregrines make acceptable substitutes (especially Advanced Peregrines).
Please stop exponential holding/reputation costs!
