I took my 10 lb shih tzu to the groomer on Friday. They said she had fleas so they gave her a flea bath and recommend a topical treatment. I used dog MD maximum defense for dogs under 15 lbs. . Saturday morning I set off home defense house foggers and did not return until Sunday afternoon. I washed all bedding ran the vac. Sunday evening I noticed thatt the blanket she was laying on had fleas poop( black pepper ) I do not see any fleas on her. Does that mean that she still has fleas

I don’t know the treatment you used as I’m in the UK but if it was one that goes between the shoulder blades it can take up to 48 hours to kill the fleas. 

There will be new fleas hatching from eggs and it will kill them too. I would read the instructions and treat her again when it states 

You might want to worm her also. 

Hope that helps!
