sadly, yep...if the flea eggs are not gone, then the fleas are not.
First thing, buy frontline or Advantix from a vet (some pet store's carry frontline though), treat the dog by putting half the dropper on the skin between the shoulder blades, then dots down his back until the base of his tail.
Then go out and get a good flea bomb (I suggest Fogger by Zodiac) and bomb the whole house again (make sure you cover all counter tops used for food and make sure ALL pilot lights, and so on are OFF)
Then get a spray for it (I'd suggest the Zodiac brand again) and spray underneath furnature...since the Fogger will NOT reach underneath stuff.
Let the house sit for a good 5-7 hours (I think it recommends like 3 hours, but I like to have it sit longer).
But warning: If you have any flea medication on your dog now, you MUST wait the period it's supposed to last (normally 30 days) until putting a new flea medication on....or else you risk chemical burns
