Do raccoon gums generally swell while teething molars?

I never noticed, either. Are you seeing some unusual swelling in your raccoon's gums?

Narrowed it down to an infection. Started meds this morning. I just love the little guy. Fingers are crossed for a positive result. Thank you both for responding.

On meds. Seemed to be ok, but tonight the gum is bleeding and he seems more listless. I sure don't want to lose him. I am worried.

Does he have a temperature?

Is a vet an option? They can narrow down what type of infection and if a nasty one can implant antibiotic beads into the gum.

Also he's young so this probably isn't it but not impossible, my dog got cancer in her gums and it was bloody and swollen looking, It's probably just an infection, which can be bad enough, but a vet could rule out other possible issues.

What kind of antibiotic do you have him on? Some are better for oral infections than others.

He is on Cephalexin. I had to tell me vet a lie since you can't keep raccoons in this state. I told him it is for a sort of feral cat. He said if this didn't work in a week, I could get penicillin in a shot form. Huggy doesn't seem to be running a fever and he still is eating and playing with me. He seems better tonight, his normal wakey time. Thanks so much for caring. I sure do love the little guy. I have had him for 4 months now. I bottle fed him for almost 2 months.

You're really lucky your vet is willing to do that(cuz it's illegal if he's never seen the animal, uunless he's seen the a stray cat from you before then he'd be fine, not that you'd tell on him, lol so he will be anyway) but that's great for you that he was willing to do that.

Maybe if it was an abscess it broke open, causing the bleeding? Either way I'm sure it didn't feel to good.

Glad he seems better.

I have wonderful vets. I am lucky. Huggy is so wise to getting the meds. He hides his face. LOL! I am hoping this will work. My vets all know what an animal lover I am and have told me that I am a "good mommy".

Hopefully the meds will do the trick. If he likes peanut butter, maybe you could hide the meds in a spoonful of it. Please let us know how he's doing.

Huggy is on a different med. Just got first dose. Fingers stilled crossed. He still eats, drinks and plays. Still no obvious signs of fever.

so glad to hear Huggy is doing a little better. if I may ask, what type of meds did you change to? and why?
I am hoping for a full recovery, please keep us updated and thank you this update.

The cephalexin seemed to be having no effect. He is on one named Coviden now. An even more broad range one
