Fox Update-Final

M2E64A70L0-117.1080017-117.1080017

I’ve decided that our fox is cured of mange. Here’s the fox getting the hot dog and looking just as fluffy as the other fox with the exception of the tip of its tail.  I’ve decided that it is probably permanently damaged.  I ended up successfully administering six doses of Ivermectin, falling between the veterinarian’s recommended three doses and the eight doses recommended by a British Fox Preservation Association on line.  I’ll continue putting out hot dogs for a while at least.

Here’s my first shot of our mangy fox taken on September 20th.  I feel so good!
