Re: 4.5 month old blind pet raccoon pacing in circles

It really isn't all that hard to discern a male from a female. A male has a penis & sheath on his belly, about 2/3's of the way towards the back end, and a female doesn't. If you rub around in that area, even if you can't visually see it, you certainly would be able to feel it. Typically, the pe...

Re: Any body from Florida?

Sounds like everything went well for you and Yatzee. How is he feeling?

Yes, sadly, that IS how our political system works. I think a great start would be to outlaw lobbying/lobbyists. But - - - that'll NEVER happen, since so many in govt rely on that as additional 'income'. :-x

Re: Grapes

When in doubt, I often consult the AZA Diet Guidelines. Not saying they know everything, or can't make mistakes, but I feel a certain amount of confidence in their guidelines. Apparently, they are OK with grapes in a raccoon's diet.

Re: Behavior Change in Neutered Raccoon

Your raccoon is probably still a bit groggy from the sedation, or from the pain meds - or just a little sore. You can expect him to get back to normal in under 3 days. If he doesn't, checking in with your vet about his change in behavior is a good idea. Testosterone doesn't leave the body when the g...

Re: Grapes

In our region, wild grapes ARE native to our area. Both wild fox and wild raccoons will indulge in them, along with all the other wild fruits in season. From my research, it would appear that it's the grape SEED that is supposedly toxic, so ... I assume that any seedless type grape is OK. I feed my ...

Re: Tick paralysis - anyone have experience with rehab?

Most people I've heard reccomend dog kibble for raccoons. I don't know the reasons why, but you might want to look into it if you haven't already. It's said that cat kibble is too high in protein and can cause kidney damage (I think??) in raccoons, over time. Dog kibble is lower in protein, so that...

Re: Anyone else worried about the new findings on grain-free food??

we can't win on dog food companies. years ago, all was safe, Was it? Or was it just far less regulated, and we never knew if one particular batch was bad?? Who knows?? We fed several dogs on a locally produced dog food (Dad's) and they all well surpassed their breed life expectancy. Really thinking...

Re: Coooing in the mornings

Like people, raccoons can be very quiet, or they can always be running at the mouth. LOL I currently have 2 males, and one rarely talks or chatters, the other constantly does. Mine will go though periods where their appetite is a bit off, and they seem a bit more laid back than usual. Then a few day...

Re: Any body from Florida?

If you are remotely worried that you could find yourself in a similar situation as you described, may I remind you that YOU are the owner, therefore YOU control the situation and YOU dictate how your raccoon is to be handled. If your veterinary staff won't work with you on how to handle your raccoon...

Re: Biting

Trefoil is correct: rough play really shouldn't be encouraged. I just meant that to save your hands and arms until she is properly trained, use the weld gloves. As 'teenagers' (as yours is right now), they are GOING to get rough until you train them responsible behavior. It's just the nature of the ...

Re: Anyone else worried about the new findings on grain-free food??

Interesting you mention a correlation between increased symptoms during shedding time. This dog has been in full shed mode for the past 2+ months, and his anxiety levels are higher, too. But that being said, typically during the time of summer shed, we also have the thunder to contend with, along wi...

Re: Anyone else worried about the new findings on grain-free food??

Mary, in with the other information you provided above, this in particular jumped out at me: In his case he does also get extra taurine supplemented as well in hopes it helps with his anxiety some. Our Aussie used to not be affected by unusual noises, such as thunder, gun shots, fireworks, etc. He i...

Re: Biting

When she gets too wound up and starts biting too hard, in addition to scolding her, give her a time out. The back-of-the-neck correction is very good. It's how mama or another raccoon would correct them. Also add a very firm "NO!" or whatever word you want to use at the same time you corre...
