Raccoon Diseases

Rabies

  • A virus that attacks the nervous system in mammals.
  • Raccoons, skunks, foxes, bats, dogs, and cats are the most common victims.
  • If not treated in time after an animal attack, the disease is fatal to humans and pets.
  • Contact with wild animals, or animals that look sick should be avoided. If client or pet is bitten or scratched by a wild animal, treatment should be sought immediately.
  • Baylisascaris Procyonis (Raccoon Roundworm)
  • Found in raccoon feces
  • Avg 20,000-26,000 eggs/gram of feces
  • Eggs require 11-30 days in suitable environment to embryonate
  • Eggs in fresh scat are not infective with Baylisascaris Procyonis
  • Clinical Signs of Infection:
  • Skin irritation from migrating larvae
  • Eye and brain tissue damage
  • Nausea, a lethargic feeling
  • Neurological signs: loss of eyesight and coordination, including circling and abnormal behavior.


Bottom line: If there is a raccoon latrine on the property, which is accessible by clients or their pets, the area needs to be cleaned and sanitized. Note: Eggs are sticky and are hard to neutralize, regular cleaning methods do not work. (Best practice is to remove feces carefully to not spread them and heat area to over 144 degrees Fahrenheit.)
