I used diatomaceous earth dusting my dog against fleas, he was on k9 Adventix, Frontline, Capstar. He is on Sentinel and Comfortis now and still has fleas. I comb him with a flea comb every day and also brush him. I put the fleas I find in hot, soapy water. He got flea allergies. I used several flea shampoos and creams and sprays, he developed little bumps and they became black. I give him Benadryl and the vet gave him antihistamin/cortison pills. Side effect was urine leaking.
I treated my home with diatomaceous earth, flea bombed twice, sprayed, vacuum twice a day in the meantime washed everything, pet toys and bed and my dog came home bathed at the same time.
I do this for three weeks now and still see fleas on him.
I'm desperate. Can anybody advice me what to do, pls?

@oldhounddog thnks I do the flea collar in the vacuum already.
Things are a little bit better but I still find some fleas on my dog.
The thing is I can't walk my dog for a long time - I am disabled- so I take him to the dog park every day.
So much fleas there and I am still wondering why those repellents are not working?
Thnks for all the advices:)

My vet doesn't carry Advocate and gives out prescription for other things. Since we moved the problem went away. He in on Sentinel , I tried Capstar, Comfortis, Frontline, Avantage II, Adventix.
Nothing really helped, the most they work for 2-3 weeks max.
My question how do you buy Advocate?

Thanks, problem solved already.
The thing is anything I use is good only for about 3 weeks and not a month, Sentinel is good but still need something for live fleas.
Novartis stopped Sentinel, there is some problem, not with medication but the packiging , I don't know exactly. I still have it for a year. Thnks.
