A lot of people use holistic spray. We give all our dogs nexguard monthly. No fleas or ticks. Our cats (inside cats) would routinely get fleas, I guess the dogs or us brought them in . Now that we use next guard no more fleas in 3 years. (knock on wood). There is nothing worse then removing fleas from long haired cats. Oh and once a year I treat the yard.
They are actually pretty easy to spot on a boxer. Zuke got them at about 4 months. I noticed on him they concentrated in the head area and the butt area. I think because there is usually more fur there. If she is scratching & biting more than usual and you brush the hair with your hand in the opposite direction you should be able to see if she has them.
I took Zuke to to the vet they gave him a pill and all the fleas were dead in 2 hours. If I remember correctly he also had to take another pill to kill the eggs. Haven't had any problems since.
Other members on here probably have a natural remedy for it if you are so inclined to go that route. I think there is a whole thread on it.

Deco had his neuter surgery on Friday. He's not happy about the cone, but hasn't managed to get it off yet. He still wants to go for walks and car rides. Is that ok after this soon after surgery? The vet didn't say and they are closed until Tuesday.
Hello, a few months ago my grandfather passed away and left a 9 year old boxer that needed a home. We agreed to take care of him for a couple of weeks, but of course we fell in love with him and want to keep him. The problem is that the dog is quite aggressive when it comes to both other people...
