the natural way to care for your pets

Feeding foxes

Feeding Foxes – what we suggest:

If you want to feed foxes but not the local cat population then try these suggestions, cat or dog food sandwiches, dried fruit, jam honey or peanut butter sandwiches, eggs etc.

Other food to include – raw or cooked meat (no cooked chicken bones), table scraps, foxes also have a sweet tooth, so cakes and scones etc.

For those feeding foxes we suggest the food is now supplemented with extra vitamins and minerals. This is very easy to do.

Saturated fats; Deficiency of unsaturated fat for example in the diet can result in the animal suffering dry hair plus hair loss and redness of the skin leading to skin lesions. Essential saturated fats can be ensured for either dog or fox by the addition of a teaspoonful of a good vegetable oil on a daily basis. Sunflower seed is said to be the best.

Vitamin B12 should be included in the diet at least twice a week and fresh liver provides a good source of this

The two vitamins that seemed to crop up within our research was Vitamin A & D. To counteract an A & D deficiency a product obtainable from most pet shops called ‘Stress powder’ can be sprinkled onto the food each day providing both A & D vitamins along with calcium and phosphorus.

Another powder, again obtainable from pet shops is SA37 a good all round vitamin and mineral supplement. Alternatively putting out Marmite sandwiches will prove to be a great source of essential vitamins.

With foxes it’s also possible that even where a good diet is either gained by the fox or provided for it the fox may still suffer from mange. This could be due in part to the fox needing to be wormed since all the goodness will be lost to the intestinal parasites. A good all round wormer obtainable from most vets is Drontal Plus. Finally to replace the traditional jam sandwich with honey would certainly provide the fox with a better nutritional food source.
