Re: pictures of enclosure

I think he was referring to the wood used for the nest box. We call it 'pressboard' or 'flakeboard' and - unless it's painted or treated with wood preserver - goes to h*ll in short order when wet or even humidity permeates it. It'll do in a pinch, but for longterm use, definitely 1/4" or even 1...

Re: Raccoon UTI?

Rosie&Roscoe - Would it be possible to move her appointment up a little sooner? If she's constantly wet and the area is irritated, in a few weeks, she could have a raging infection going on there - or worse. If I've learned ANYthing from my many years of animal husbandry (40+ yrs), it's be PROAC...

Re: Raccoon UTI?

I would think the symptoms would be the same as with any other mammal: seeming to have trouble urinating, fever, general malaise. If you cannot actually bring her to the vet, perhaps you could do a urine capture you could have your vet check? This sounds funny, but a soup ladle works excellent for t...

Re: Raccoon or other exotic limb amputation

Fracture/break surgery has been done on raccoons successfully. However, since the front limb dexterity is extremely important to a raccoon, if the repair isn't nearly perfect, that animal is not a candidate for rehab and release, if that is the eventual desire. If this case is a domestic raccoon, I ...

Re: Water Ideas For Issac the Coonie

Yeah, I had tried the pull out type bowl for my raccoons, but they figured out quick they could remove the bowls. The bowls in the link above should be fairly stable for what EllieMae is looking for. Hopefully!

As TG said, these are just for privacy. I have them on my outdoor enclosure and they work great for privacy and for providing filtered sunlight in the hotter months. But they in no way would work as fencing for anything with claws or teeth.

Rosie&Roscoe -
Ellie May noted that she'd tried water bottles - they didn't work out well.

I tried water bottles but some how he chewed a hole in them from inside the cage

Re: Water Ideas For Issac the Coonie

Dishes are too small and so easy to tip. I water my raccoons using 'bussing tubs' like restaurants use to clear dishes from tables. Generally they can't/won't tip them, but you'll still have the mess from them crawling in and out. https://www.uline.com/Product/Detail/S-19500/Totes-Plastic-Storage-Bo...

Re: Starting from scratch

If you want an honest opinion, I'd advise you to turn him over to a rehabber and save yourself a boatload of heartache and $$. It sounds like you don't know very much about raccoons (and that's perfectly OK - we ALL had to learn!!), and this little guy can teach you, but goodness - even experienced ...

Re: Spaying Raccoon Near Ky

Is there a particular reason you feel you MUST spay her? Many owners keep their females intact, and have absolutely no issues. While it would be good to locate a vet willing to see her, in event of any future emergencies, honestly I'd try keeping her intact and just deal with her seasonal moodiness ...
