Default My pet dog was attacked by a racoon

Hi all, I am a newbie to this forum. I have a pet dog. His name is Milo. He loves playing in the backyard. A day before yesterday, he got attacked by a raccoon. This raccoon was a frequent visitor in our yard. It keeps digging in the yard every time it visits the yard. Milo keeps on barking whenever the raccoon enters the yard. One day, Milo was attacked and he was barking at the raccoon when he saw the raccoon crawling into the yard. Suddenly, the aggressive raccoon attacked our Milo and they got into a fight with each other. I was bathing while they were fighting. I hurried from the bathroom listening to Milo's barking. We informed a humane wildlife control in Markham for capturing this raccoon who visits the yard frequently. Milo was bitten by the raccoon while fighting with him. I have hard that raccoons carry rabies. Can a dog get rabies when bitten by a raccoon?

Hi, Pearly,

Welcome to the Petfinder.my Forum, which is an animal welfare forum based in Malaysia.

As someone who once lived in the US, though, I can assure you that, yes, your dog can most definitely get rabies from the bite of an infected raccoon. Did the animal control officers capture the raccoon? If not, I would strongly advise taking Milo to a vet clinic ASAP. If he has contracted rabies (and let's hope this is NOT the case), he is at risk of spreading it to other animals and humans as well. If he's come through this encounter without contracting rabies, please vaccinate him!

Let's hope the raccoon is not in fact rabid and was merely defending its territory.

If your dog has bitten or been bitten by a raccoon, you need to get your dog a rabies booster shot within 5 days the sooner the better. Unless you have a small dog, chances are the raccoon will try to get away as fast as possible, and once it does, it's long gone.
