Flea infestation

Hi so I just got a pit bull puppy from a girl online mind you he’s only 6 weeks didn’t realize that was way too early intel I did research. Well when I picked him up I see the horrible environment he was living in not to mention all the puppies and mother and father were flea infested so bad you could see them crawling all over there skin. I gave him a bath today with dawn dish soap and used the flea comb after I was done I realized they were all inside his ear and his eyes. I just want to know is it safe to do it all over again tomorrow I saw a lot of people saying not to do one everyday but I can’t risk the fleas invading the whole house . I’ve kept him in the bathroom tonight in a dry tub with a towel to lay on with food and water

Yes, I agree with Daysleepers. Speak with your vet about this. They will likely prescribe a preventative that will kill fleas, ticks, and worms so you never have to worry about this again.

Since the pup came from such bad conditions, a thorough vet exam isn't a bad idea in the first place. You should also talk to your vet about starting vaccinations if you haven't already.
