Just a few weeks after we were called to rescue a fox stuck inside a wall we were called out to rescue yet another lost vulpine that had become trapped in a shop.
The shop owners had seen it run in from the street and, with nowhere to go, it had taken refuge behind a window display. With grasper in hand, Simon set off to catch the frightened animal, who turned out to be a lot more elusive than first thought!
This poor fox was brought into the centre recently by the RSPCA after being found with a leg injury.
Our vet, Emma, was quickly on hand and gave the fox a thorough examination. The poor vixen not only had several large wounds in her leg, but also had signs of mange and required urgent treatment.
After shaving and cleaning the wounds, Emma wrapped the leg in a padded, wet bandage and gave the fox medication for her pain and mange. She was placed on a course of antibiotics before being moved into one of our fox pens for some rest.
This female fox was brought in to us by the RSPCA after being found walking down a road with a wound on her side. She was dehydrated, had a lot of fleas and the wound on her side was already infected. Luckily, our volunteer vet, Maru, quickly cleaned all of this up and put her on a course of antibiotics. She was very bright and feisty and she will be released back into the wild once her wound heals!
