Re: Raccoon Vaccinations

Thank you for saving her life. And you'll get nothing but support from me on returning her to the wild - as long as she's prepared. I do hope you'll plan to support her with food and nestbox opportunities when you decide it's time to set her free. Even for a wild-born and -raised, the first year is ...

Re: anyone want a raccoon?

Good, I'm glad you got her rehomed, Pat. I sure didn't want to be tempted! I need another animal to care for like I need another hole in my head. :wall:

Re: Picking different sleeping spots

I've got the material but haven't found someone to make it yet( I don't sew). Well, THAT stinks! LOL So do you like the material? Do you think it'll hold up to coonie claws?? If so, do you happen to remember exactly which material you ordered? They have different weighs, strengths, and I'm not sure...

Re: Picking different sleeping spots

Trefoil, did you ever get that mattress cover made to keep the kids from destroying your mattresses? Was wondering how that worked out for you. Now that winter is coming, I need to order some of that material and make hammocks for my kids.

My raccoons are 5 & 7, and they both 'groom' me (and each other) on a regular basis.

Re: My 7mth old Coon is coughing/gagging occasionally but getting more frequent, help?

I'm very anti-treating if you don't have PROOF of a need. Like Pat said, a stool sample to your vet is the saner option. For years, horse owners were advised to deworm their horses quarterly. Guess what? The worms developed to where the dewormer no longer worked, so now more powerful, harsher deworm...

Re: Cutting nails

Pat, I used to have the same problem with Bobby (messy butt - poop sticking to fur) and since I upped his fiber, his bum is pristine clean. See if your bub will eat banana or pumpkin (but not pumpkin pie filling , just plain pumpkin). I give Bobby about 2-3" inches of a banana every evening, an...

Re: Arms vibrating hugging toy or my foot

Dewey was a humpin' bumpin' machine with his stuffies when he was younger, but now at 5, he rarely does this. It's harmless behavior, if directed at toys. No harm in allowing your bub to do this.

Re: 4.5 month old blind pet raccoon pacing in circles

What Trefoil said! My boys get about 1 TBS of Craisins twice/day. They love them, and no doubt are good for kidney/bladder health. Cranberries also pack both pre- and probiotics in them, are antioxidants, have minerals, vitamins and dietary fiber. The only drawback is sugar, but given all the pluses...

Re: First time raccoon parent

I'm not sure how difficult spaying or neutering one at 4-6 WEEKS would be, but I sure wouldn't consider doing that, even IF my vet would - which I don't think they would. Typically , altering is done on most animals between 4 months and up to one year, but usually falling into the 4-6 month range. I...

Re: Anal Gland issues

Update: I've begun feeding Bobby foods that will increase his fiber intake, and honestly, it seems to be helping. Yay! Just by adding a quarter of a banana per day, and a mix of banana, pumpkin and peanut butter (about 4 TBS of this mixture) each evening, his bum is now sparkling clean ('output' is ...

Re: First time raccoon parent

personally, I think male and female raccoons should be fixed by 6-8 weeks.


I think Pat had a typo here. Pretty sure she meant 6-8 MONTHS. :icon-wink:

Re: Need Advice for Raising a Raccoon

Having never had a female, I can't tell you if it's imperative to have her spayed. Others here will be able to tell you that better than I. But vaccinations - even if she doesn't go outside - are still necessary, both for her safety - and yours. Depending on where you live, you may or may not be abl...
