Thank you to the Kerluke family for making a difference!

When you bring us an animal, we do all we can to rehabilitate them. But before that happens we have the public who care enough about wildlife to bring them to us. With Sox the Fox, a lot of effort went into capturing him to bring him to Procyon.

The Kerluke family are stars and really went above and beyond! There’s Tanya with her son, Mom and Dad, along with volunteers Sarah, Dave and Jennifer. Just a beautiful story of their caring and sharing his release. Thank you from Procyon and Sox.

Mange is a Serious Problem

Fox with Mange before treatment

Fox after treatment, fully recovered. 🙂

Coyote Admitted 10/24/2017 with the worst case of mange ever seen by Procyon Wildlife Staff.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MANGE is a type of skin disease caused by parasitic mites.  Since mites also infect plants, birds, and reptiles, the term “mange”, suggests a poor condition of the hairy coat due to infection.  Mange can be seen in domestic animals (cats and dogs), in livestock such as sheep and in wild animals such as coyotes, fox and many others species.  If the infected wild animal is brought to a wildlife rehab centre, the disease is fully treatable. 

Here is a before/after picture of a fox that was admitted to Procyon Wildlife. With the proper medication and TLC this fox is ready to be released today, without it, it would surely have passed away.  Another happy ending!  

 

 

 

 

 

Last night we admitted a coyote (bottom pic) that came in with the worst case of Mange we have seen in a long time.  Here’s hoping for another happy ending for this little girl.
