|MaggieRoseLee||Make sure you wash all the pets in the house (btw, heard the original Dawn dishsoap works well How to Kill Fleas With Dawn Dishsoap: 11 Steps (with Pictures) ) and the house (I use those flea bombs, you can get good price on multiple cans at Home Depot/Loews) AND the yard if the dogs live mostly in the yard).|

Perhaps you can give Sentinel a shot as an add-on (plus it'll act as a heart worm preventative to boot), because it doesn't do anything for adult fleas but will eliminate flea eggs so they don't propagate. I had my dog on it for a while with no problems. As one of the earlier poster pointed out, you're going to have to treat your whole house to get rid of the resident fleas.
I think Frontline PLUS has always worked well for me in terms flea and tick prevention, as I have removed many dead/paralyzed ticks from my dog in the summer months and never saw any fleas on her, but I keep hearing there is huge regional variation to its effectiveness. Perhaps your local vet would have more suggestions as he/she would be more familiar with the area?

I've heard good things about the effectiveness of Comfortis. I'm still having good luck with Advantage II. Friends are having great results with Vectra 3D (from the vet, also gets ticks).
We also use Wondercide on the yard.
