Default Omg.. fleas.. help!

Ok I'm panicking here. I went to take my "1 week" old photo pictures of the boys and I found a FLEA on Peter. =(

I'm SO lost.. Kahlua is on Frontline.. and on the first day I got Eleanor I went ahead and gave her a dose too.

So how on earth do I have a flea?! Its been years since I've even seen one.

Work (vet's) isn't open until Monday. I've looked up as much as I can online and people say all kinds of stuff.. they all say not to use chemicals which I know I can't use; but what CAN I use? Some have said to just pick off the adult fleas (but that's still not going to do me any good until they're old enough for Frontline and I'm certainly not going to give somebody an infested pup!) and some say you can bathe them with Dawn... which other sites say it's too dangerous to bathe a pup so young.

Help =( I don't know how the little thing got in here and I want them gone gone gone!!

one flea is not an infestation. make a flea trap http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Flea-Trap to see if you have a problem before you decide to treat for them...

Yes, just kill that flea and keep an eye out.

Ohh I took care of that flea. In fact if his head was big enough and I found a tiny needle I could stake him and make my own rendition of "Lord of the FLEAS" and they'd never come back. =P
