    i dont know if this belongs here.

    My moms friend found an abandoned baby raccoon a couple weeks ago and i guess she needs more attention than what they are giving her so im thinking about raising her but thats not going to happen if i dont get her vaccinated,so my question is is there any place i can get vaccines that i can give her myself and how much is it?

    Vet supply stores [for farm animals, that is] will carry it, complete with syringes [better to get someone older to buy it, since young people are more likely to use them to shoot up]. I'm not sure whether raccoon vaccines exist at all, though... Some diseases might be common to a bunch of species [like rabies], though. My step-dad does all the vaccinations for our cats and dogs.

    You can keep raccoons as pets?

    Well, my understanding is that no, she can't, so she can't go to a vet for the vaccinations.

    yeah in ohio it is legal to keep a raccoon as a pet as long as you get a license for it though im not sure if its legal to keep a wild coon.
    ive done alot of research and im aware of all the diseases and shit the coon could have and develope,i think im going to pass this time.
