As flea killers go, it is my understanding that CAPSTAR is the safest. Do be aware that its effects last for just about 24 hours. You need to combine it with other actions, such as frequent vacuuming, frequent washing of dog bed, and perhaps applications of FOOD-GRADE diatomaceous earth (NOT pool-grade!!) in the environment and even on the dog.
