Fleas?

Ranger has been scratching a lot but when ai look on his stomach where the fur is a little less thick I don't see any fleas. I looked all over his stomach and none. Does that mean he is flea free or do I have to look where the fur is thicker too? I know this sounds like a dumb question but I have never had a flea problem before.

Thanks.

I've not had the dogs have fleas, but at our old place, the indoor cats got them (my landlady let her cats out and didn't treat). They had fleas in their thick fur. I'd look all over.

Can you see obvious bites or is he just scratching?

I don't see bites, just scratching. I looked through his fur on his back and around his neck - no fleas. I am thinking it is allergies maybe.
