Please text me at 361-945-6722 My friends raccoon will be 6 in April. He has a UTI. They gave him Bactrim and also gave his distemper shot. He is lethargic, doesn't want to eat. Any suggestions extremely appreciated.

He shouldn't have had a vaccine while sick. You could try a B12 shot. I'm not sure about that antibiotic either since it's actually a combo of two. Stopping the antibiotic in case it's a reaction to that is advised then iv fluids to help flush them out. When he is otherwise well again you could try another unrelated antibiotic.

It sounds like they gave him to big of a dose? Is he doing any better now?
