Default Fleas Revolution vs. Frontline

I have read a lot about using revolution to treat fleas (.01 dose). Can Frontline be used as well?

Unless it's changed in the past couple of years, Frontline never used to be considered safe for hedgehogs.

Default bathing

okay, thanks. I gave her a bath last night in a flea shampoo and dawn dish soap as well. When I bathed her I could see a few running to her head and got them off. After her bath I did not see any on her tummy or in her quills. I have her another short bath this morning with dawn and didn't even see any run to her head. Do you think I got them all? I changed her bedding and washed her cloth toy as well.

Fleas are tricky and are almost never gone the first few rounds. I treat my cats for fleas a minimum of 3 months because fleas don't just live on the animal. They go everywhere.
