If advantage is anything like revolution it will take 72 to kill all the living flees on her.
I don't think you can put an other treatment on her for a month. You should consult with your vet.

We had the same issue, make sure you vacume all your carpets and clean all the puppies bedding and your if they sleep with you. I'm not sure what kind of spray you got but I did get one that you can also spray on the carpet after you have vacumed and also on the floors in corners, funiture.

Oh an I was told by my vet not to bath them for the 72 hours so the revolution can start working. What did the eggs look like... I have never see it. just curisous

I just ordered a new bottle of Frontline spray from one of our SM sponsors, entirelypets.com. I was having trouble getting it from 2 of my regular catalogues, so I deceided to try them. I was very pleased. They guarentee that their products are FDA approved (I was worried about counterfeits). The price was fabulous, under $22, reasonable shipping, and super fast delivery! I ordered it on Friday and got it yesterday (Tuesday) even with a holiday in there!

I had the same problem. chelsey had fle's last month and we took her and chester to the vet got revolution and gave them flea baths. Well last week she was swarmed with them again... i was so made. spending 300 bucks for the vet and those things were back. Well my vet said that she call the company and if it does not work this time they will refund our money and supply us with an other product. I also put the revolution on them again . Revolution garentees the sencond application not the first on as it can miss some. It is suppost to kill the live fea's in 72 hours. So right now they are all gone...
lets see what happens next month. I really hate bugs and they were crawling on my puppy ... i was so mad... poor chelsey and chester.

Don't fleas drown in water?  I have always noticed that they do.  So just washing your loose rugs, dog bedding, etc. will take care of those.....I just don't like to use any more pesticides than necessary.

For the rest of the summer, continue to vacuum frequently, change dog bedding frequently (wash) and spray beneficial nematodes in your yard.  These are non-toxic ways to keep the flea population down.  A "spritz" before going outside with a mixture of 1 cup water, 4 drops Tea Trea Oil and 4 drops lavender oil is supposed to repel fleas.  I don't think it is heavy duty stuff but for those potty trips outside it might keep any hitchhikers off.  Maltese are flea magnets because they are so white and fleas are attracted to light.

The itching after the fleas are gone can be from the allergic reaction to the flea saliva when they bite.  Try a soothing rinse like Aveeno.
