Urban fox with mange - help!

    We have had a fox visiting our garden nightly since we moved in last year and have been feeding it. Recently it has been showing signs of mange. At first I thought it was just losing its winter coat but now it has started appearing in daylight and it is definitely mange. Its appetite is growing daily, probably due to internal parasites. It has been wreaking havoc with our garden wildlife and now our 2 hedgehogs have disappeared, including one we over-wintered:(.

    Has anyone tried treating a wild fox for mange and can you offer me any advice? Would a local vet have an over the counter remedy that I can spike its food with? Thanks in advance for any help.
