Gastroenteritis, or inflammation of the stomach and gut, has been reported in blue foxes. The bacteria isolated was Clostridium perfingens – Type C. The source was likely seal, whale meat or poor quality fish.

In this outbreak, some adults and most kits of 600 foxes died. It is unlikely to be seen if food is of high quality.
