Sarcoptic Mange/ Canine Mange
Information And Treatment Updated 21st March 2013
These images above show Zorro a fox cub, over an eight week period, recovering from a severe case of Sarcoptic mange.
In 2011, NFWS continues to lead the way forward in eliminating Sarcoptic mange / canine Mange in foxes across the UK.
Sarcoptic Mange / Canine 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 mange treatment and an information leaflet, please click on the Sarcoptic Mange Treatment link ( Top Left ). If you are able to make a donation, please do so, we rely solely on public support.
Visit our foxy mange website for mange treatment and to see where the mange is occurring in the UK, some photographs of foxes suffering from varying degrees of mange, peoples letters who have successfully treated foxes with mange. We also have a FAQ for mange plus lots of information to help foxes suffering from mange.

To give an indication of the National Fox Welfare Society's commitment to foxes, below is a brief rundown of activities for the period January 2011 to 05th June 2011
The Society sends out treatment, free of charge, to householders willing to feed foxes that are suffering from the terrible condition, Foxes that, untreated, would die a long lingering death. This treatment went out to help cure a staggering 1250 foxes in the 5 month period. Because this treatment is sent out free of charge, NFWS incurs the cost; in 5 months we spent in excess of £6,250.00 on these treatments alone! We sent a further 115 treatments out in the five months, at a total of around £500.60 worth, for foxes suffering from other ailments and conditions.
