Shoulder Raccoon

So I was browsing Reddit and I found the subreddit of r/shouldercats (pretty self explainatory). It seems like a fun behavior cats do (as long as they don't have dagger feet) and I was wondering if this is a common behavior among pet raccoons. I've been working at a wildlife rehab center since aroun...

Re: Spaying Raccoon Near Ky

You can't get a vet to spay a raccoon that you don't have the permits for if the animal is a species that would normally require a permit. Any vet seen treating an illegal animal can have their licence to practice veterinary medicine taken away, so you will probably need to get a permit. Raccoons do...

Re: Disabled Raccoon resulting from unknown attacker - need Help?

What state are you and Roxi in? Perhaps we could use this information to arrange a pickup by someone who can take care of her.

Re: Disabled Raccoon resulting from unknown attacker - need Help?

The situation she's in sounds like she might not be releasable. Perhaps look for certification for wildlife rehab. If an animal is too injured to be released, they can be kept in human care. Try to look up wildlife rehab in your state and see if they can help. Edit: Many states that don't allow pet ...

Re: Wild-caught animals

Perhaps a breeder could make a rehab style program for one of their animals each time a wild one of the same species is taken from the wild. For example, the Brookfield Zoo (a bit west of Chicago) took two of the wolf pups that were born from their Mexican Grey Wolf pack (third litter from alphas Fl...

Re: Are Wolfdogs Technically not Hybrids?

Sometimes the dog is referred to as "Canis Familiaris" which means it's a different species entirely. The problem there is that the dog has been proven to be the same species as a wolf. The scientific name canis familiaris is outdated. The modern classification of dogs is canis lupus fami...

Are Wolfdogs Technically not Hybrids?

I recently found out that the domestic dog (canis lupus familiaris) is scientifically classified as a subspecies of the grey wolf (canis lupus). Would that mean that a wolfdog isn't a hybrid because both of the parents were the same species? This could just be me overthinking everything (in fact, it...

Re: Putting the word out :) re: kinkajou

We need pics. For "science" (totally not just looking for adorable pictures). /s

Also, out of curiosity, what milk formula did you use for raising the bottle fed kink?

Re: Official Raccoon vaccine protocols

So are feline and canine distemper close enough that the feline one covers both?

Harnesses and Leashes

I've heard people on here talk about taking their raccoons for walks (which would make sense because in the wild, they can travel 18 miles a day in search for food) and I was wondering how this is done? I've also heard people talking about dog harnesses (like when someone put a Christmas sweater on ...

Now if ONLY we could get someone to confirm that the rabies vaccine works on raccoons (and skunk, fox, etc)!!!! Maybe one day, but we are making progress! Seriously though, it gets annoying when I go on Reddit and every post that mentions raccoons has someone saying "Rabies! Rabies! Ur gonna g...

Deworming Raccoons

I found a study backed by the CDC that confirms that deworming raccoons works! According to https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/eid/article/20/12/14-0977_article , when baits that were filled with an oral dewormer were distributed within an area that had wild raccoons, the raccoons' feces had far fewer cases (18%...

Re: Getting a Mountain Coatimundi

Do you have a dog for him to play with? Yep, he enjoys playing with my dogs. I make sure to closely monitor them both, but nobody gets too wound up. :icon-wink: . Playing with dogs is a great way to house train a raccoon, so I would assume that it works for a coati. A dog's instinct is to teach the...

Re: Senora and Jude <3

Funny, I get told ALL THE TIME - from rehabbers and other 'experts' - how raccoons are loners, how they rarely spend time in others' company, except during breeding season. This is TOTAL BS!! After nearly 4 years of nightly trail cam videotaping, I have TONS of proof that this is NOT how raccoons a...
