Revolution & Fleas

We give Revolution to our dog, yet he still got fleas. He is an indoor dog. Now our indoor cat has fleas. Can we add a flea collar? We have bathe both animals, treated our cat, and cleaned/vacuum everything.


Could a non-chemical flea collar be added? If so, what one? We are currently in Florida and need to get this under control before we head home in 3 weeks.


Thanks!

Have you tried diatomaceous earth? That can really mess up fleas and it's safe unless you inhale it. You'd sprinkle it in your carpets and it would help to cut the flea's exoskeleton and dry them out.
