Our Vet Says:
Hello Desiree,

Thanks for approaching us for your pet’s health.
After deworming, if you still find worms in your cat, it is better to repeat the treatment. However, ensure that you do not overdose your kitties. 
If flea infestation is too heavy, treat your cat with Capstar and then follow with Advantage for Cats topical treatment on the next day. 
For house, use a flea fogger. It is better to wash all the rugs in warm water. Also, if you have a bedding for your cats, wash or vacuum them too. Ensure that the whole house is treated for fleas.
