We first noticed fleas on our dogs on September 2nd. We treated with Capsta and Frontline. We laundered all bedding, vacuumed rugs, hardwood, mattresses and furniture and mopped the hardwood. I have been continuing to vacuum usually every other day and washing the pet bedding two to three times a week. We did not see the Frontline working so our vet recommended the Nexgard chew a week later. We had a pest control company treat our home and do a follow up two weeks later.  Servpro came and professionally vacuumed and cleaned our rugs and furniture. I have been giving the dogs Capstar pills once a week. We are over a month in and the dogs are still itching like crazy.  Last night I pulled more live fleas off of our small dog than I have ever seen at once. I feel like I have gone above and beyond to take care of this but nothing is working. I have tried the dish soap trap six or eight times and only caught two or three fleas. We don\’t see them around the house, just on the dogs, but I am concerned about why there are still so many and how they are still alive after everything I have done to get rid of them. I don\’t know what else to do and I feel like I am losing the battle. This is taking over my life – please help!
