Abstract : The San Clemente Island fox (Urocyon littoralis clementae) is a focal species for conservation by the U.S. Navy. The Island Fox Veterinary and Pathology Services project was designed to assist the Navy in island fox conservation and management efforts by attempting to mitigate anthropogenic-related injuries or illnesses. We utilized our mobile veterinary hospital with trained staff to provide care for island foxes as needed. Throughout 2015-2016 we also collected 95 fox carcasses and submitted 16 for necropsy. Blood and serology samples were obtained from 99 foxes during 2016 and these were archived and frozen for future analyses.
