Re: Upper respiratory infection

Raccoon rehabber is in agreement that if your raccoon was exposed to the cats prior to their URI, it wouldn't hurt to admin same antibiotics to your raccoon as a safety measure, if you're able to get the meds from your vet and administer them easily to your raccoon. Tip: if liquid antibiotics, mixin...

Re: Upper respiratory infection

According to a raccoon rehabilitator that I know, YES, absolutely the URI can cross species to your raccoon. As a precaution, can you possibly get the same meds from your vet and administer to your raccoon concurrent with your cats, as a prophylactic? Not sure that just separating him from your cats...

Re: wild fox question.

OK, so in addition to the suggestions I listed above, here are some other suggestions from my book on how to deter foxes. Note that this book was published in 1997, so I'm sure some of the suggestions are a bit dated. But regardless: Repellents: No repellents are registered expressly for use in repe...

Re: wild fox question.

I would like to put a foot trap for that wild fox. I would prefer using a hav-a-heart. but, foxes are too smart for that. I hate the idea of a foot trap. If that is my only option, that is what I will do. the only problem with a foot trap is I have cats that wonder the property. I don't want them t...

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 ...

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...
