So I took my two rabbits to the vet last week on the 18th. There she found fleas on them as soon as I got home I treated them with kitten Advantage II per her recommendation. Today I was flea combing them and I found a live flea on Raven and a dead one on Becca. What can I do it is too soon to retreat them?

Never put it on more frequently than recommended. That stuff is pretty harsh and you don't want to use too much of it. I've never dealt with fleas but I suspect it will take a little while for all the fleas to die. Fleas from around the rabbit's area could have hopped on bunny and that's probably why you found a live flea. Make sure to clean the area/vacuum well to get rid of the fleas in the house.

You definitely need to vacuum the carpets, rugs, drapes, upholstered furniture in the area, as there are likely live fleas and flea eggs around there. Fleas only stay on the animal for short periods of time, the rest of the time they hide out in carpet and other places. If your rabbits have a cage, clean that, as well as dumping out their litter box and starting over with fresh litter. When you do vacuum, take the vacuum outside and remove the bag, placing it in the garbage, to keep any fleas and eggs out of your house.

You can make a homemade flea trap using a pan of water, a few drops of dish detergent, and a light, to kill any extra fleas, and to monitor your house to see if fleas are still present. Here are the instructions:
