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).
