Remember that if you switch from Revolution (which covers heartworm, fleas, and some ticks) to a different topical like Advantix (covers fleas, ticks, some other parasites) that you will need to account for heartworm prevention. You may find that an oral HW prevention and a topical flea treatment or a flea collar is a good combination for example. Capstar oral can be used in combination with other flea/parasite treatments to kill adult fleas on the dog when the med is given.

Fleas mean treating and cleaning the house. Hot water wash and hot dry the dog's bedding if washable and any human bedding where the dog has slept or rested. Vacuum every other day or so with a bagless vacuum or dispose of the bag after each thorough vacuum of the house and furniture. Gotta get into every crevice of flooring, beds, sofas, baseboards etc with the vacuum to get rid of eggs.
