this could become dangerous if the fox population start getting it, so far i can't find any data on other mammals other than dogs catching it in the uk ,  maybe the posters from the USA can help out on this one any information you can add (with out it becoming a pissing match )  

and we as terriermen should have a quick look over all foxes killed and check if they have any skin lesions

at the movement the cases are building up across england and a few in wales, no cure and it seems dog get infected when muddy and wet 90% of cases during the winter and spring , this could be a f***ing nightmare, i just about remember pravo  first out breaks in the 70's and kennels of all breeds getting wiped out , at the moment only 132 cases from 2012  , 37 in 2017 but with a rise already in 2018 12 cases so far

What are the symptoms? I haven't heard of this. Fox are getting to be less and less every year. I was gifted a real good Russell and he went in on a fox and got a scrape on top of his muzzle. Took him to the vet and they couldn't figure it out. Took him to specialist and they couldn't figure it out either. His top of his muzzle was slowly rotting off. Sad enough he had to be put down. So who knows if it came from the fox or the earth. Both can carry disease. That's why shots are Important. And the last couple years over here it seems like the ticks got worse also.

Yeah and I bet you knew about this didn't you. Wow,  I live here and never once have I heard of this! And obviously it's known about doesn't mean alot of folks know or heard about it. And if it's that known about katchum I think the specialist should of known don't You? I told them about the fox and how this started. So put the fire out buddy because I'm not pissing on :victory:it

It’s been here a few years, was reported in forest a dean first or most I think, lots folk said it was scare mongering an that but recently it’s been all over Facebook an had spread, even up to the north have been several cases in darlo an Durham both only a few miles up road from me, sure I heard some where it’s fungal or summat to do with fungus but I don’t think anybody’s really knows what it is yet

That's what the speaclist said that it's some type of fungal disease. Had I'm on prednisone and some type of heavy cleaner and cream. It started to clear up and 1 morning I woke up and his top of his muzzle was REALLY BAD! Felt real bad for the little guy. Had to put him down. We think it was fungal and it mutated to pemfagus. Probably spelt that wrong. A skin eating disease. If I have any pics I'll post them

main way in which it kills is  lesion in the kidney , and then kidney failure , and so far the cause is unknown which why they haven't found a way to cure it
