Re-applying is usually a big "no-no" buy certainly call and ask BOTH like Llombardo suggested.

It is also heartworm preventative and intestinal parasite killer/preventative.

I have never seen a flea on Lisl in almost two years she has been on Trifexis. I don't have to worry about her sitting in the grass or playing in the yard, or going to a strange field for work.
YES! We had the same issue with Arson last month. Vet rightly stated "you get what you pay for" and recommended Trifexis. We haven't had an issue since! HIGHLY work the cost. He's going to need to be on a monthly flea/tick no matter where you live honestly. You also need to now go through your house and do a very good vacuum and wash in HOT water any fabric where the puppy lays (bed, your bed sheets, ect.).

They have capstar at Petsmart. I got it there when I thought mine had the fleas. You can look it up. Research anything you decide to use.

Capstar.

Check with your vet, but it is typically considered safe to use with topical treatments.

ETA: I'm having really good results using Springtime garlic for flea and tick prevention. It's cheaper than topical as well. It takes about a month to build up, so I continued Frontline for a month when beginning the garlic.
