I'd love to see some vids of your lil' darlin'...

Does he like the taste of peanuts? If so, once he becomes a little better with his hands, give him peanuts still in the shell, and the desire to get to the yummy nuts inside may develop his hand dexterity a little sooner. ?? Not sure, but worth a try! :icon-wink:

DM,

what kind of peanuts do you use?
I had some pistachios and mine love it, but, they are too expensive. I will try the regular peanuts?

Just regular ol' unshelled peanuts, but not the "salted". Too much salt then for their diet. Make sure you get "unsalted" for them. Our grocery store has them in 3# bags. Wish I could buy them in larger bags because then I wouldn't have to buy them EVERY week! LOL

I've gotten huge bags of unsalted peanuts at Sam's Club on occasion, but they all turned their rotten noses up at them.

Pat, you can get unsalted (or salted) peanuts at Giant Eagle. Some pet stores have them in the bird section. My local chain (Pet Supplies Plus) has them in a bird aisle bulk bin.

He is now able to close one "hand" a little, so peanuts might be a good motivator!

He loves his new walker. He's still off balance but he gets around pretty good!

I did find both salted and unsalted at sam's club, as did Ana.
I doubt mine would eat the unsalted either.
I got them the salted, and put some in a big pan (a little more less of a mess)
they like them.

is that really bad for them? I would think small amounts would be OK :shrug:

so glad he is making progress. I think too the peanuts would help. that is great he is starting to have use of his hand,
hopefully, in time, he will make a full recovery.

keep us updated..

I finally found meat he likes- homemade pesto chicken. So far it is the only meat he loves. He did eat a little bit of beef fajita meat, but he didn't devour it like the chicken.

glad to hear he eats chicken. beef is not really a good source to feed raccoons. guess a little won't hurt.
I only fed mine boiled chicken, and a little grain free dog food.
my oldest one loves prunes :lol:

have you tried marshmallows? grapes? watermellon?
mine go nuts over "marrow bone treats"

thank you for update

He's obviously a coon of refined taste.

It's been my experience that raccoons don't generally care for beef. Poultry, pork, fish, seafood, yes - beef, not so much. Mine love the deep fried pork rinds, as a treat.
