Sadly I think a couple of the fox cubs who visit each night may have mange.
I noticed that the smallest one had fur missing from one side of his neck but thought mayabe he had been in a tussle but then Tom saw that another cub was losing a bit on his rump.
This is a particularly nasty ailment caused by mites that will eventually kill the fox.
This isn't one of our foxes but you can see how the fur falls out leaving a bare patch and eventually they can lose all of the fur and die a horrible death.
In the past we have successfully treated foxes with mange and started last night to treat these little monkeys.
This is all that is needed to halt the mange, some homeopathic drops.
Just a few drops on the food each night for a couple of weeks or so and an improvement will be seen.
I will understand if some people can't understand that this would work but it does.
We are going to treat all of them as they must all come from the same den and the others could easily end up with it.
If you see a fox with mange or have any visit your garden you can obtain these drops for free from here.
