Re: Dry shampoo

That comes as no surprise - that's why I mentioned it. :icon-wink: FYI - Cedar chips/cedar oil should be avoided with raccoons, too. I seem to recall prolonged or high exposure to it can cause kidney (?? or some other organ ??) damage. Pretty sure the BB-sized mat balls you're talking about are Yatz...

Re: Dry shampoo

Oh, if prairie dogs smell like that, I would probably love the scent. I love the musky smell of ferrets and groundhogs. Is is similar to that?? My bubs are pudgy, too, and have trouble reaching certain parts of their bodies for proper grooming, too. Maybe Watson would like the taste of the coconut o...

Re: Dry shampoo

Baby wipes! Brilliant! icon-smile I use a dog 'undercoat rake' for spring shed grooming on my raccoons. (It works awesome on shedding horses, too!!) The rake seems to get down to the skin better to gently pull fur out at the base. For larger mats, though, I probably wouldn't use it because it would ...

Re: Dry shampoo

I don't understand the need for bathing a raccoon, for the most part. Most raccoons have very low odor, and keep themselves extremely clean. I once had to bathe a raccoon baby that got into my husband's car oil drip pan :roll: and I used Dawn and warm water for that, but other than that, I've never ...

Re: Capstar

@Dana, sounds like it might have been a colostridium infection. We had a deer die from that her insides had hardened up like cement. The cat being rescues may have had FLV/FLP and had a high susceptibility to infection. Sometimes that may be the case, but whenever my friend took in strays, she alwa...

Re: Capstar

My experience with Capstar?? Stay the heck away from it!!!!! A friend of mine had a bad year with fleas on her dogs & cats, and she and her vet dosed all of them with the recommended dosage in one day (at the time, she had 4 dogs and 20+ cats <rescues, not by choice!!>). Within minutes, the flea...

Re: Missing Coon advise plz

If you think he's still in the area (which no doubt he is - they don't travel very far), you can support him with food. Daily. Which it sounds like you're already doing. This is a "soft release". You can put your trail cams up wherever you set food out. Chances are pretty great that you'll...

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...
