Re: Vasectomy Reversal?

Thank you, That is GREAT information to know! I love learning these new things. I had used the human hair analogy because my gyncologist friend told me that in a rather offhand fashion; I didn't double check it since I didn't have a need to do so. She was probably playing fast and loose with the bio...

Re: Vasectomy Reversal?

I wanted to mention that there is a major difference between neutering and vasectomy. In neutering (castration), the testicles are removed. Thus hormonal aggression is lessened, since the testes are a major producer of testosterone. For a vasectomy, you are not removing the testicles, you are merely...

Re: Raccoon neuter/spay questions

Was there anything special the vet had to do before or after having your raccoons neutered? I read somewhere (it wasn't this site) that someone took their raccoon in to be neutered and he died. I don't know if it was anesthesia or post-op problems such as heat loss. Are there any problems that racco...

Re: My raccoon got heavy matted hair balls...HELP

Is he calm enough for your to use Oster clippers on him? I used to groom dogs; you have the least chance of cutting him with the clippers. Scissors are easy to cut an animal; if that's all you have, use a large-tooth comb UNDER the matt, then use the scissors above the matt that is caught in the com...

Re: Neutering

Do raccoons need special care during neutering? Are they alright with the regular veterinary anaesthesia used for cats and dogs? Do they need special care afterwards? Cats, for example, do better on heating pads after a spay/neuter and need to be kept quiet and alone indoors so they can heal. Thank ...

Re: Introduction

Thank you so much for your kind welcome. I'm sorry it has taken me so long to get back on the board (it's been an incredibly busy summer). The little guy is not so little anymore----he weighed in at 13 lbs last week. We bought an outside kennel with a dog house, and he spends a lot of time there nex...

New raccoon person needs vaccine help!

Hello, I'm Dovemaiden. I just joined your forum. My husband and I live in Utah. We do raptor rehabilitation, and other wild birds as well. Occasionally we get in beavers, deer, marmots, baby bears before they are sent to the bear center in Idaho, etc. Our newest rehab is a raccoon which is why I joi...

Re: First time Raccoon parents...failing...

I am new to the board (Dovemaiden) and I have the same problem. I am a second-time raccoon parent; the first was when I was 12, my raccoon was a female, too. Mitzi was nippy, and we didn't know to treat her differently than the dogs and cats. There was very limited information back them, the year wa...
