One flea bite can cause itching for awhile if a pup is a bit allergic. Also, when you bath you gave to rinse, rinse, rinse and rinse some more to be sure that you get every bit of shampoo residue off your pup as any left in the coat can make them itch. My Leo itches when I apply topical flea meds so I have stopped doing so. I put it on my big dogs a few months each year but not on Leo. I comb him thoroughly morning and night so I know that there are no fleas or ticks on him. That said he gets itchy sometimes. It could be something in the diet, reaction to shampoo or conditioner, allergy to grass, carpet, etc. that makes ours pups itchy.
