if shes not 100% if the fleas are still there try this just to be sure; get a cooking pan, fill it with water & dish soap (mostly soap) but just so the soap is sitting in it & not bubbled up.. put it in the middle of a carpeted room with a small lamp next to it over night. the fleas will be attreacted to the light & when they get close enough & jump into the pan they wont be able to get out bc of the soap. if there is fleas sprinkle baking soda on the carpet everywhere in the house.. it needs to stay there for about 2-3 days.. in the mean time make sure she washs everything else in the house (blankets, pillows, etc.) once one load is done put the clean stuff in a tied garabge bag to keep it safe from living fleas. then vacuum the carpet (fleas breathe through their skin so doing this will suffocate them). do this a few times to be sure theyre allll gone, and any other animals in the house wash them with dawn dish soap. good luck!
