I don't know what brand of flea medication you use, but Advantage and Frontline both suggest applying them no more than once a month. Too much flea medication can cause toxicity so before you do anything, call and ask your vet. These products use neurotoxins to kill the fleas and even though they serve a purpose, they aren't totally safe for pets. The better solution is to eliminate the fleas from their environment with an organic product so you don't have to apply poison to your pets. You can't have flea allergies if you aren't exposed to fleas.
