Tldr; I just need some product recommendations that work, and ways to treat my home. Also something to help the bites on me please it's driving me nuts.
I just moved into a new, small apartment. Unfortunately, it seems to have gifted me fleas as well. Most of it is carpet and I don't have a very reliable way of doing our laundry, since there's no hookup in our apartment. We have a laundromat in the complex though. I also don't have a vacuum, we're just starting out on our own and our income is pretty low (though we're planning on saving up for one.)
I have a topical treatment for my cat, but I also have a small dog. Both of them and me are itching like crazy. I've definitely noticed much more on my cat, she's got the worst of it.. but shes not the type to let me bathe her without a fight. Anyways, I bathed my dog with dawn dish soap and I didn't see any fall off into the water. I'm still planning on buying treatment for the dog as well, but I really would like some recommendations that work.
And should I wait to do the cat treatment until I buy the dogs? Or start it now? Our next check cycle is in two weeks, and we should be able to buy a vacuum and a few things. Do I wait until I have everything?
I would also like some tips on getting them out of the house as well, do I buy bedbug spray? How often do I vacuum? I've heard peppermint helps? Should I bag my clothes? I plan on washing and drying all of them at once as a big trip to the laundromat. Is there a good flea shampoo for my dog (maybe my cat)? Preventative measures would be appreciated too!
I really appreciate any help, apologies for asking so many questions. This is driving me insane and I feel so awful for my animals right now. Moving into a new home was so exciting until this.. :/ hoping someone here has any helpful insight
