Default Eek, Fleas!

Lately we've been having a flea crisis in our home. I've found fleas on both our foster kittens and our dogs, and have found some flea droppings on Garnet's skin. I have tried brushing some of the fleas out with the flea comb, but Garnet's fur is too thick for me to actually get anything done. I have been treating the kittens and dogs, so I now need to treat Garnet. I've heard of Advantage and Revolution being the safest treatment for rabbits, but i'm so confused as to which one to get!
Can someone please link which one to get?

I successfully used Stronghold kitten and Advocate for cat, I don't know if you can find those. The important thing is to use one that has no fipronil in it (like frontline - the good news being that in the latest ad I saw on TV, they were stating a warning against using it for rabbits, so people should know, now).

I would use Revolution being the safest treatment for rabbits.

Revolution/Stronghold(selamectin) is the most effective, though Advantage usually will work fine too, and both are considered safe for use on rabbits.

And like Aki mentioned, never frontline(fipronil) as it's toxic to rabbits.
