Re: Biting

When she gets too wound up and starts biting too hard, in addition to scolding her, give her a time out. The back-of-the-neck correction is very good. It's how mama or another raccoon would correct them. Also add a very firm "NO!" or whatever word you want to use at the same time you corre...

Re: Male 4 month old peeing everywhere

Rocket2018, if you are on Facebook, there's a fabulous group on there called Raccoon Health. You could explain your boy's symptoms to them and I'll bet they could give you exact med type and dosages for your kid. It's a closed group, but I could recommend they add you. PM me if you're interested. I'...

Re: Vet/ toy advice

Pat, BEHRtheRaccoon was asking which species vaccinations her vet should use what distemper shot do you guys recommend the one for dogs,cats or ferrets? not what kind of food to feed. BEHR, I would share this link with your vet - latest edition is 2010, but it pretty much has all the info your vet s...

Re: Food

If you're feeding a good grain free food, it should have everything that he needs. However, it never hurts to try additional foods. What he rejects now, he may - in the future - decide he likes. I wouldn't badger him too often to try new foods that he's previously rejected. Offer a food that he's re...

Re: Normal?

As TG said above your baby is definitely grooming you. Never discourage this behavior. They only do this with others whom they are totally comfortable with, whether other animals or humans. It'll definitely strengthen the bond you have together. And you can reciprocate. Try to replicate what he's do...

Re: My baby became a wild raccoon

There's every reason to try the spay. Nothing to lose (except ca$h :icon-wink: ). Hopefully, it will make her less aggressive. I've heard that sometimes it does, other times, not. However, having another raccoon for her to pal around with is definitely a good option. But I'd definitely get him neute...

Re: When to split siblings

they have transitioned to eating dry cat food about 95% of their meals Please transition them over to DOG kibble. Coons love cat kibble, but the protein is too high and can eventually damage organs. Dog kibble is lower in protein, so much better for them. A good grain-free dog kibble will help keep...

Re: How to reintroduce Orphan Racoon to wild

Trefoil is absolutely right. They are fairly easily rehabbed and released to the wild, but you can't do it from an apartment. Because he's not been able to learn from his mama, he'll need food assistance and possibly shelter at least through his first year wild. Thank you for rescuing him. Hoping yo...

Re: Help PLEASE

Thanks, Trefoil! Good to know. Maybe when I go to place my order, I'll call first to see what they recommend. I'll need something water resistant and hopefully weather-resistant, too, as some of the hammocks will be in their outdoor enclosure. The sun can be really hard on fabric... :-x

Re: Help PLEASE

Have you used this material? Which would you suggest? I have not, Trefoil - but plan to order some, at some point in the future. Probably not til fall or winter, because I just don't have time to sew anything right now. Too much stuff outside to care for in the summer... If you have any questions, ...

Re: Help PLEASE

Are you handy with a sewing machine? (Or know someone who is??) *Perhaps* making a mattress cover out of a rip-resistant or rip-proof fabric may work?? Not sure how comfy that would be to lay on, though... A quick Google search found this fabric retailer: https://ripstopbytheroll.com/collections/syn...

Re: yapok - Water possums

Wow - thanks for sharing, Mary! I didn't know this critter even existed. I think most people would be hard-pressed to accommodate owning one, but they'd surely be a great addition to a zoo. I'd love to have a Virginia possum, but their short-life span deters me. Three years is just too short to love...

Re: Poll - Just for us raccoon parents

LOL Yeah, I think they tend to be far more comfortable being ambidextrous than humans. :icon-wink: I've queried other raccoon parents, and so far, the results are leaning towards righties being more in the majority.
