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.

Feeding foxes with mange.


Foxes suffering from Sarcoptic Mange is possibly one of the busiest areas of our work. If your visiting fox looks like any of the above photographs of foxes suffering from mange, then we would possibly look to try to cage trap the fox to bring in to treat. If your visiting fox /s are in the early stages, or anything up to 50% hair loss we can send you free mange treatment that can be added to food each night. So if you are looking for mange treatment or mange treatment advice, information, or to just see where Sarcoptic Mange in foxes is occurring around the UK please click on the arrow. In an average month we can send out a staggering 500 - 800 bottles free of charge.

Fox Watching In the shadow of the fox by Martin Hemmington Foreword by Professor Stephen Harris (Second Edition)

Pudding the fox makes the front cover!

The author has much useful information on how to find, attract and watch foxes, as well as how to photograph them and how using wildlife cameras you can gain an insight into what is happening with the foxes when you are not able to observe them. 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. New 2nd Edition is available now at just £9.99 plus £2.00 postage
