He sure did, but I don't think he's feeling so good today. He won't eat, appears lethargic and is whimpering .

Can I give him Amox??? I think he might have pneumonia...

Amoxi would have been fine I think.

I did give him Amox, but probably too late.

Miss Dolittle and other knowlegable raccoon people,
A few days ago a friend asked us if we would adopt an almost grown raccoon that's almost totally blind. Not knowing what to do with a raccoon especially one that's blind, we didn't take it. I suggested they call the game warden and ask what to do and also said I would check with some folks who knew more about raccoons than we do.
Any suggestions?
We could probably still get the raccoon, however I'm not sure how to take care of it and I don't know how a raccoon would do here with all the dogs and cats.
Thankyou.

Nadine

Hm, my first question is: do you have the facilities to keep a raccoon secured enough? When he is blind, there is no safe place for him to have the free run of anything. But if you have a big outside enclosure that happens to be empty and could be a permanent home, why not?

Even with a normal rehab license you wouldn't be allowed to keep one indefinitely, so legally the only way you can go about it, at least in Texas here is to have either an educational permit or a display permit, and both are hard to get.

If you are caught with a pet raccoon here you have to pay a fine of 500 Dollars.
