Resolved Question: Few questions about
I have a few questions about fleas.
Recently, I got this Shihtzu (he's 3 months now) and he had a few fleas on him, so when I found them biting me, I applied Frontline Top Spot on him. It's been about two weeks since I put him on Frontline and he continued to scratch. I can't vacuum the house, but I did clean and wash everything the same day I applied the product on him. I don't get why he kept scratching since this is an indoor dog. I haven't seen fleas, and he doesn't have any marks that could be allergies or skin problems, so I don't know what could be going on.
I have two other pets, a big dog and a cat but they have never been in contact with the dog since they are in a different floor in the house.
I was desperate because I saw my dog scratching again so just today I got an exterminator and applied Pet Armor on him and some flea powder, maybe it was too much but I'm worried now.
So, could not vacuuming really be a problem?
Are my other pets infested too? Should I treat them?
Is Pet Armor recommendable?
Will Frontline still have an effect on my dog after I applied Pet Armor to him?
What are signs that my dog still has fleas?
What should I use for my house?
If I apply these products on my dog, will he still get fleas if I take him out for a walk?
I really would appreciate it if someone could help. Thanks.

Resolved Question: How to get rid of fleas?
My two dogs have fleas and I feel so bad for them. I heard this rumor that if you put Soapy Water into a little aluminum pie pan and take a night light and you put the pan in a corner or anywhere that it's close to the light. The fleas will be attracted to the light. And hop into the pie pan. Thus drowning them. Does this actually work? Can you please give me other options?
