We have talked to her time and time again, she is not doing much to get rid of the problem. We are even finding fleas on us when we leave the house. This has to be a health hazard. We want her out, can this be done?
Assuming roommate is on the lease, you could talk to the landlord. If your roommate is creating a health hazard, the landlord can give her a warning with a reasonable time to treat the dog and the premises. If the roommate will not comply, the landlord would have basis to initiate eviction proceedings.
