Patient History:

Red foxes are a delightful sight in Alberta, known for their striking reddish-orange fur, bushy tails, and clever antics. These adaptable creatures can be found in diverse habitats, from dense forests to urban areas. With their keen senses and agile movements, they are expert hunters, often seen pouncing playfully on their prey. Red foxes mainly feed on small mammals, birds, and insects, but they’re also known for their love of berries and fruits, adding a dash of variety to their diet.

In Alberta, red foxes play an essential role in maintaining a balanced ecosystem by controlling rodent populations. Their curious and often playful behavior makes them a favorite among wildlife enthusiasts. It's not uncommon to spot a red fox darting across a field or even sneaking around suburban neighborhoods, always on the lookout for their next meal or a bit of fun. Watching these clever canines thrive in such a wide range of environments is a testament to their remarkable adaptability and charm.

These red fox kits were originally admitted as separate cases but are now enjoying their time together. These adorable orphans, each with their own spunky personalities, arrived in need of urgent care for dehydration and pesky ectoparasites. Thanks to the dedicated team at the Alberta Institute for Wildlife Conservation, they've received top-notch medical attention and yummy nutrition. Now, these feisty little foxes are having a blast socializing in their new group setting. They're playing, learning essential survival skills, and forming bonds that will help them thrive when they're ready to return to the wild. Watching these playful pups grow and interact is not only heartwarming but also a crucial part of their journey back to nature.
