What are some of the symptoms of a sick raccoon? Raccoons can carry a great many diseases that are dangerous to human beings. Parasites, bacteria, and viruses are found in virtually all raccoons, meaning that they are walking carriers of disease for human beings. This makes them very dangerous to say the least.
The issue for most is do they really need to worry if they come in contact with any raccoon. Some are not as dangerous as others so, while all should be avoided, you can feel a little safer should you come in contact with certain raccoons. This may make you wonder if you can actually tell if a raccoon is sick or not. If you are worried about this, here are some signs to you that the raccoon may be sick.
The most common you will find is foaming or discharge coming from the mouth. While this can be a symptom of other diseases, it is frequently a sign of rabies. If you see a raccoon that is showing this sign make sure that you, your family, and your pets stay as far away as possible. Rabies is incredibly dangerous and quite life-threatening.
If the raccoon is showing signs of labored breathing then you should be aware that it is most likely sick. This can include such things as trouble breathing, wheezing, panting excessively, or a choking sound. This can tell you that it is sick and needs to be avoided.
There are many other symptoms you may see, and many of them are things that would be symptoms of illness in any animal that you may come across. For example, if there is vomiting or diarrhea this is a clear symptom. If you see that there is foam or discharge around the eyes, then you can be sure that it may be suffering from raccoon distemper. If the animal looks weak or is moving quite slow then this is definitely a symptom that the raccoon is sick and most likely dying.
The biggest symptom of all is if you see a raccoon out during the daytime. Raccoons do not venture out when it is light because their poor eyesight makes them an easy target for predators. Raccoons will usually only venture out during the day if they are desperate, and illness is one of those reasons that they would come out. If you see a raccoon that is out in the day time you can be really sure that it is a danger, and you should avoid it all costs.
