Re: Diahrea issues

I’ve been halfing her kmr with water. Not quite clear on what you wrote... Are you using less KMR and more water?? If so, I think you might try doing it the other way around, and making it LESS watery. She needs more bulk to harden up her stools, and less water. You could try adding some plain yogu...

Re: Introducing new raccoon

YES!! Absolutely, females can kill babies that aren't theirs. You must keep them separated until he's about 6 months old, then allow them to acclimate to each other gradually. If you can somehow separate your enclosure into 2 pens and allow them to meet with fencing between them, that would be best....

Re: New Baby Raccoon questions

If you do a switch-over to the KMR, obviously you must do it incrementally - which I'm sure you know. If you've raised other exotics, you are well aware of the turmoil that can ensue from ANY little change in diet. Is there a particular reason why you want to switch? If the Esbilac is working for hi...

Re: Concerned about leaving coon for extended time

Wow. Gone four weeks. That's a tough one... Yes, he's definitely gonna miss you, but if you have time to allow him to acclimate to the house sitter before you leave, that would be best. Try to have the house sitter take care of him WHILE YOU"RE there so he knows that the house sitter is 'safe'....

I'm very sorry to hear this, Pat - I know you were kind of expecting it, but it's still always sad when it happens.

Re: How do I find out if a vet near me will look after a fox?

I simply asked my horse/dog/cat vet hospital if they'd see my raccoons, and they said yes, but also said they really didn't know the species, having worked with so very few of them. I find that I've needed to really educate myself, and in turn, educate them. The vet who mainly handles my raccoons is...

Re: Sometimes I just don't get it

Because they can. Because they are turds. And because they know doing something like that will irritate the hoomans.

Re: Need A Companion

That size would work for a raccoon - IF not enclosed in it 24/7. But that is way too small for a fox. Hop on over to the fox part of this forum to see some fantastic examples of fox enclosures.

Re: Need A Companion

If all else fails, you could try a skunk, fox or a ferret as a companion. I believe those species ARE legal in your state, but please double-check with your game commission. Also, there are a few people who have coatimundis and raccoons together, but I'm not sure if coatis are legal in your state.

Re: Help with handling an almost adult raccoon

If you can get ahold of a dose of Convenia (one-dose, long-lasting antibiotic), that's what I would recommend. It is given sub-Q (under the skin), and if you have someone to help you, it's best. One person scruff and hold (as described above), the other pull up the skin, sink the needle and push the...

Re: Raccoon Enrichment: Anyone tried large parrot toys?

I've often eyed up the parrot toys, thinking that perhaps it might interest my boyz, but then after really looking at them, I feel they aren't made hardy enough to hold up to the abuse they would get from them. Hard plastic scares me - I envision them chewing on it and then swallowing a piece and en...

You're welcome!! Keep us posted on his recovery. I'm sure he will appreciate it. Who know? Maybe he's a she, and you might see babies in the spring. :) And thanks again for helping the wildies in your neighborhood.

Re: Question about raccoons and raisins

If you can afford to do so, please offer this raccoon a bowl of dog kibble. Cat food is not good for raccoons, although it sounds like he's not eating too much of that? It doesn't have to be expensive dog kibble. I buy my wildies whatever brand is the cheapest. LOL You can also offer him mini marshm...
