Re: Raccoon or other exotic limb amputation

Thank you everyone, this is all reassuring. Talked to the vets more today and they confirmed their availability for surgery tomorrow. Fingers crossed! A further complication I failed to mention is that they discovered the limb's "elbow" is stiffened and doesn't have full range of motion. T...

Raccoon or other exotic limb amputation

Hello everyone. Long time, no see huh. I am seeking information regarding stories and information of raccoons and similar functioning species that may have had surgery to repair a limb fracture or amputation. I am caring for a raccoon that has been diagnosed with a fractured front limb. He has been ...

A severe dog bite injury

Hello everyone, It's been a long time since I've been on here, but it's a time of concern. I know there is a lot of knowledge and support on this board hence why I have come. It's been eating at me - my pomeranian, Mocha, got bitten by something relatively large (a bigger dog, we presume), and I don...

Re: How Freakin' Cute is this?!

I didn't think that they seemed to be patting the raccoon that hard/aggressively. The raccoon appeared to enjoy it and not be bothered. I patted mine like that sometimes. Stinky didn't mine that sort of handling, though Alex didn't prefer to be touched much. As you said, I think they're all just dif...

Re: Update on Charlie

Thanks for posting an update! You may be the first raccoon owner I have known who attempted a diet very similar to the one I had Alex/Coonie and Stinky, my previous raccoons on. I followed the 80/10/10 ratios for the meat/bone/organ part of the diet and added fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, ...

Re: Is there a sad story behind each raccoon?

Welcome to the forum. I think others make good points here - we mourn our lost coons. The bond you have with a coon is a unique experience, unlike any other [standard/common] animal. I think that may be part of why you find many sad stories. They are also very challenging animals to keep compared to...

Re: Rack System

KingObeat, did you ever use any moist/humid hides? I was thinking of making some for my sand boas to help them shed. I was wondering if that ever helped for you. I didn't realize that shedding poorly was a common issue for them. The sheds really were rather terrible, and the humidity is certainly no...

Re: New pig

I have heard mixed things about micro or tea cup pigs, with some saying no such thing exists and that they are just underfed pigs. Then there is the other side, which is of course people saying they exist (and often selling them for crazy prices). The label for Idgie at the auction said "teacup...

Re: New Gizmo Diet

Is it just me, or does wheat germ oil smell extremely foul? I had bought some in the past (ordered online) and I the smell was just so strong, like it had gone off or something. Is that how it's supposed to smell?

Re: Raccoon ID-opinions

An ear tag seems like a better ID form on the surface, but they present a lot of issues I think. When I bought my pig, she had the most awful ear tag on her. It was huge, it bothered her as she was always flicking her ears around. It was crusty and heavy and just awful. Getting it off was a stressfu...

Re: How Freakin' Cute is this?!

Darn that is cute. I have heard mixed things about them as pets. I have seen them at a couple of different auctions and got close to the cages, No aggression shown whatsoever, which in my experience, my own raccoons would freak out. I guess depends on how they are socialized though. Here is a super ...

Re: Western Hognoses!

So cool, congratulations! I still really need to take some quality pics of my guys (or gals, whatever they are) and post. Like for real.

Funny how you say that Westerns always look like they're smiling...I've thought that about my adult sand boa. He's the coolest snake I've ever met.

Re: Rack System

Hey Ash, what do you use for temp gauges in your cages (hah, a rhyme)? I currently have my two sand boas on the same mat with the probe at the bottom of the tub and then my BCI on a different mat with a probe at the top of the substrate. Then I have the IR temp gun and each tub has an acurite meter ...

Re: New pig

Hi guys. Idgie is about 10 months old now, based on my estimation anyway. She lives outdoors because I had moved her back to my parents house and they didn't want her indoors (understandably). She escapes into our larger fenced in area which contains her pen on a frequent basis. They are smart, stub...

Re: Raccoon ID-opinions

I have not researched the topic of tattooing animals, so it is only my personal opinion that I am offering. Considering it is done on Marshall ferrets as a standard, I assume it is generally not thought of to be harmful to the animal. When it comes to exotic pets, particularly native species, it is ...
