Not a lot of information.
What did you use to treat the fleas?  Did you treat the house and yards?
Even one flea bite can cause problems on an animal that is allergic to them.
I suggest you consult your Vet on a good oral medication for your animals.
Do a search on the Internet as to how to get rid of fleas in your house and on your property.

So, the thing with flea medication is that you must treat once a month for a minimum of 3 months to get rid of an infestation because that is how long the flea life cycle is. If you only put one treatment on, you bet those fleas will be back shortly because all of the eggs left on the pet and in the environment will hatch and cause problems next month.
