Cellulitis

Infection in the skin of the head of foxes has been reported. It is also known as “big head.” In one case, Clostridium septicum was isolated form the swollen skin. The probable source was feeding a cow infected with the organism. This condition is rare and can be prevented by avoiding such carcasses.
