Have a look at this,they might be able to help

In 2008, NFWS continues to lead the way forward in eliminating Sarcoptic mange / canine Mange in foxes across the UK.
These images above show Zorro a fox cub, over a four week period, recovering from a severe case of Sarcoptic mange.
In just 3 months of 2008 we have sent out over 923 bottles of mange treatment
Mange Information
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.

How Effective Is The Mange Treatment

The mange treatment we send out, through questioning people who have used it, letters back etc, we have found it to work in almost 99% of the cases where foxes have had up to or less than 50% hair loss. We have even had great results with foxes suffering over and above this amount of hair loss, although the results are greater in the former. Please help us by reporting back your results. If for whatever reason the treatment doesn’t seem to be improving the foxes condition please let us know.

Ring a gamekeeper :-)

He'll do for free what a vet will charge for.


Taff Report 2 Jun 2008 16:02

Thanks BM, will do!.


Taff Report 2 Jun 2008 16:05

Eldrick, SHAME ON YOU!!! I just dont want to see the poor thing suffering, also passing it on to all the local cats!!
and if you offer a air riffle, i will shoot you with it!!LOL


Eldrick Report 2 Jun 2008 16:06


I prefer a .223 for closer range, not an air rifle!


Taff Report 2 Jun 2008 16:08

Elizabeth Report 2 Jun 2008 16:17

Nwfs mange treatment was a success for our back garden fox -almost bare on one side, shivering in winter cold- please send for it.


Eldrick Report 2 Jun 2008 16:20

We all have different views on foxes :-)

On this farm, we lost 27 lambs this year to them, that I know of. I personally hate them.

But, if you like them, that's also fine.

Hi Taff fox can be treated with Aludex thats mainge treatment if it lets you near it you can take it to any vets, they are obliged to treat wild life free of charge.

We had one few weeks ago beautiful animal and it was so tame, passed to to rehoming centre.
