is that the one that attracts fleas to the dogs and kills them where you dont have to treat the room?

YOur best bet is getting either frontline or advantix
Then vaccum your house couple times a day each time throwing the bag away in a plastic bag and taking out to the garbage.IF you have no bag take container out to the garbage.
I dont know about bunnies. You would think they have something. Call your vet.

For me I've tried frontline and it didn't work very well on my cat. I use advantage now on both the dog and cat. I've had on ongoing battle with fleas and my cat for a while and just couldn't find anything that worked on him. What I did was fogged the house with Raid foggers. It killed the fleas in the carpet and furniture. I gave both the dog and cat flea baths to kill the majority of them. The dog really didn't have many it was the cat that was the worst. Then I waited a couple days to use the advantage. No more fleas.

My daughter is allergic to flea bites and she swells up really bad. So killing the fleas the quickest was priority for me. That was the best way I've found to do it. Hope you get rid of those buggers. Once they get into the carpet it's really tough to get rid of them.

to catch/kill, or test, to see if they're in your room/carpet:

Get a shallow pan and fill it with hot, soapy water (dish detergent is good). Place a lamp over the pan (those bendy ones work great for this, but any lamp will do I guess). Put these in the middle of a "problem area," turn out the lights and go to bed

In the morning you should find some drowned fleas in the water... The heat from it attracts the fleas and the jump towards it and die in the pan. You can do this whenever you feel like it, and as often as necessary. When your not catching any more fleas, they're probably all gone. This and vacuuming is usually enough for our (and friends) flea problems once the animals are protected. Also, don't forget to wash sheets, bedding, ect

I used Frontline when I first got Smokey, and there were still fleas on her 3 months later. I switched to Advantix ( which also repels mosquitoes and kills ticks), and the fleas are history.... Advantix is toxic to cats, so don't use it if you have any cats. . Advantage is OK for cats and will take care of your flea problem, but has no effect on mosquitoes and ticks.
