I’m so happy right now because things are looking up the foxes! I was getting upset and frustrated that the RSPCA wouldn’t come out until the fox was insight and despite me feeding the foxes to establish a feeding routine I obviously couldn’t possibly watch out the window 24/7 until the fox was visible.
I was starting to worry, I hadn’t seen that fox since but I saw 2 other foxes that were both itching frantically ( a sign of mange). I had to do something so I contacted the National Fox Welfare Society and put in a request form for some mange treatment that I can administer myself. This was about Wednesday and I was get a little disheartened I hadn’t received an email back but to my absolute delight today in the post was a bottle of Sarcoptic Mange Treatment.
I’ve been given a homeopathic remedy and I’m to put four drops in to jam sandwiches daily until I see an improvement.
I was concerned at first that I might give them too much resulting in an overdose or that other wildlife might eat them but this treatment is made from all natural ingredients so isn’t dangerous, ruling out these potential problems.
I should apparently notice an improvement after three/four weeks and the fur should start to grow back.
I cant thank the NFWS enough for this, they are such an amazing organisation. The are completely voluntary based and send out treatment for free. I will be making a donation soon as the work they do is fantastic and worth supporting.
