Sarcoptic Mange / Canine Mange in Foxes

Free Mange Treatment For Foxes and Mange Treatment Advice

Sarcoptic Mange can be treated successfully

These images above show Zorro a fox cub, over an eight week period, recovering from a severe case of Sarcoptic Mange after being treated by the National Fox Welfare Society. The treatment we used was Ivermectin along with antibiotics and re hydration fluids.

NFWS continues to lead the way forward in eliminating Sarcoptic mange / canine Mange in foxes across the UK By offering Free Mange Treatment for foxes and using humane cage traps for foxes suffering advanced mange  

Sarcoptic Mange / Canine Mange / Fox Mange is a terrible condition that left untreated will see the death of the infected fox. We believe that if a condition can be treated then it should be, regardless of whether the householder is unwilling, or unable to pay for the treatment. If you have seen a fox with mange and would be willing to provide food (in the form of a jam or honey sandwiches each night), the treatment can be sent to you free of charge. To receive Free mange treatment and an information leaflet, please click on the Sarcoptic Mange Treatment link. If you are able to make a donation, please do so, we rely solely on public support.

We are not advocating a diet of Jam or Honey sandwiches for the UK fox population. This is merely a vehicle for the treatment. Foxes love anything sweet, the local cat population usually doesn’t. So by putting the mange drops into something sweet, we know it will be the fox that takes it, not the cats. To give an indication of the commitment of the National Fox Welfare Society, in an average week, we can send out, free of charge between 150 - 200 bottles of free mange treatment for foxes.

Red Fox with Sarcoptic Mange

The National Fox Welfare Society’s Website (NFWS) dedicated to the welfare of the UK Fox Population

More than just fox rescue: Dedicated to the Red Fox in the UK for over 25 years, The National Fox Welfare Society provide free mange treatment to householders feeding foxes in their gardens with Sarcoptic Mange and this alone means each and every year we don't just help a few foxes, not even hundreds, but thousands!  All foxes we rescue will be seen by a Veterinary Surgeon in the first instance and price is never put before the life of a fox. Whilst in our care the foxes receive the very best food along with the very best veterinary medicine to aid their recovery. When a fox that has been in our care is released back into the area the fox was caught in, we ensure, when we do so, that the fox has as much chance of survival of any wild living fox.

Stress is a big factor for a wild animal and we try to reduce this as much as possible and it is for this reason, we never have an open day. The NFWS is spending thousands of pounds each year researching Toxoplasmosis in the UK fox population in the hope of getting a better understanding of the condition and the best ways to treat it. We are enrolling and equipping new volunteer rescuers across the country almost every month.

In 2015 the National Fox Welfare Society was awarded the International Fund For Animal Welfare (IFAW) Animal Action Award and in 2016 we were the winner of the Daily Mail / RSPCA Animal Hero Awards ' Animal Enthusiast of the year'. We also provide a fox sanctuary for foxes that can’t go back to the wild. All our rescuers, Cage trap setters, fox cub fosterers, release site providers are all voluntary, so if you can help either financially by way of a donation or by joining our Society, this would greatly help our vital work continue. Furthermore if you are able to help hands on, please click on the appropriate link  below. In anticipation of your support, we thank you.

How to become an amateur biologist, keeping records of the annual diet of your foxes, how to age a fox casualty and how to make casts of their footprints.

Martin Hemmington has been studying foxes for over 10 years when he wrote this book, during this which time his admiration for the fox grew so much that he formed the National Fox Welfare Society to which he has devoted himself full time for over 20 years.
