Thanks for posting the pics! George looks great!! He doesn't appear to be quite as 'large' as he used to be. :icon-wink:

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!

Huh! I didn't know they still made glass ones! Seems everything is made out of plastic these days... :roll:

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 ...

Re: Raccoon neuter/spay questions

Like any other mammal, certain individuals have issues with anesthesia. Certainly, if planning to spay/neuter, opt for a vet that has experience with raccoons. If you have a vet you trust but he/she doesn't have raccoon experience, then suggest they contact other vets who do and ask them what anesth...

Re: Vet that will spay my female raccoon

Sorry so late to this topic... What state are you in? That would be helpful to know to enable someone to point you in the direction of a participating vet. Best thing to do is start calling the vets in your area, asking if they would see her. You don't HAVE to have her spayed. I've not found any evi...

Re: Sick raccoon

Not to worry you unnecessarily, but someone in a FB group I belong to just lost their young raccoon who had symptoms very similar to what you've indicated. Is there a vet in your area who would see her? If so, I highly recommend doing so, ASAP. Any change in behavior in your raccoon should be a red ...
