My roommate and I recently have come into a flea problem. A few weeks back, we took our dogs to play with a friend's dog, who we didn't know had fleas. My dog wasn't very much interested in him, but hers was, and by the end of the night, he was covered in fleas. She has tried using Parastar and Sentinel, but her dog still has fleas, and needs to be checked every few days as well as being washed in Dawn dish soap. Mine, on the other hand, is on Revolution, and when I visited the vet about fleas, he noted that his skin was flawless and there wasn't a flea in sight. However, that was a few weeks ago, and although I don't see fleas on Caleb, I notice he's been scratching more recently, and am worried the fleas are now on him. I understand that Revolution works by killing the fleas once they've bitten, but I still feel bad for him.
Is there a way to rid a dog (and possibly a house) of fleas without resorting to shaving?
