Homeopathic Injury Treatment for Foxes
Please note that this remedy is for bruising, sprains and strain injuries.
Application of arnica, rhus tox and rhuta grav involves 1 pillule daily. It is best given on small items of food that make it difficult for the animal to remove, bury and thereby waste the medication. If only one fox is being treated then the pillule can be left in the food. If several foxes are to be treated then dissolve the pillule in a glass of water and sprinkle the medicated water all over the food so that all foxes will get a mouthful.
If you can be sure the foxes will all take a drink from a water bowl, then the pillule can be put in the water bowl.
It is essential that the pillule doesn’t touch your hands as the remedy is a coating on the outside of the pillule. Tip the pillule into the bottle cap and transfer from there.
Treatment should continue for 5 days. However, if the animal deteriorates or fails to show signs of recovery, it may be appropriate to contact your local wildlife rescue centre to trap and treat it in-house or to seek support from your vet.

Paul Chapman –
Without being able to run a scientific test, this certainly seems to be effective to help foxes recover from soft tissue injuries – such as the strains they frequently suffer to front and back paws, which can be debilitating initially but are swiftly recovered from with these pills and supplemental feeding. Note that this will not be sufficient to help with a broken foot or leg – if in doubt, please consult with a fox support charity such as the Fox Project or the National Fox Welfare Society.

This treatment was very effective in helping heal minor injuries to our garden foxes front and back paws/legs. It was a swift recovery, often in 2 to 3 days.
