Tips to Think About for Your New Member:
Bring a small pet carrier or tote for your new baby. Yes, your pet needs held a lot, but you might need to stop somewhere on the way home.
Have a supply of soft fleece blankets or towels on hand for your lap...Just in case of accidents!
Pick up your receipt!
Find out before you leave home if you need a health paper or not. Don't call me a month after you pick up your pet and ask for a health paper. We have to make an appointment at the vet office for your pet to visit. We will need your name and address for the health paper. As your local vet if you need a health paper. Our vet charges 35$ for the paper.
When you get home with your new pet, hold it as much as possible.
Do not use tap water when mixing the milk formula, use bottle water. All tap water is different and can cause a digestive upset.
If your pet is young, keep half of your tote on a heating pad. and half OFF. That way if it gets too hot for your baby, it can move to an area that is cooler.
For bedding, DO NOT use cedar. It is toxic.
For bedding, instead use Pine shavings or fleece blankets (you'll just have to change more often).
Talk to your new baby with a soft, gentle "baby voice" . If you have a gruff, grumpy voice, you won't have much luck! If your voice can make a baby cry, you might have a hard time winning over your new baby.
Again, PICK UP YOUR RECEIPT!! It is very important since it has our USDA number on it and serves as proof of legitimate purchase.
On the way home, do not set your new pet on the ground to use the bathroom. It might pick up parvo or distemper since generally shots are not administered until 10 weeks for red fox kits.
If a friend has a pet cat or dog with a runny nose or eyes, do not let them touch your pet.
Scams: Be careful of Scams! Just a few people are dishonest. Most people are honest. If a person will steal he will also lie. A few people run ads for animals at a very cheap price. Usually wanting a large deposit up front. If it is a very cheap price, ask for their address and go pick up the animal. If it is a scam they will not be at the address given. We have people run scams on us every year. The most common is someone claims they paid for an animal and are here to pick it up. They usally claim they sent cash thru the mail. Or if our credit card machine is not working they leave info from a bad card. So we can run the card later when credit card machine is working and they are long gone. Will not do that again. We will not take a personal check from you when you arrive to pick up your new pet. We have taken some people to small claims court. Guess I will not use them as a reference.
Call me 8AM- 8Pm I will help any way I can. With that being said, I am not a Veterinary. One person called and said her 6 month old fox had a knot on it's head. Asked what I thought. I said take it to your Veterinary!! It ended up being a bee sting. A few people call and their pet critter or even dog is very sick, vomiting, convulsions. Take it to your Veterinary. Almost always it ate something it should not have eaten such as; chocolate, prescription drugs, mouse poison, cleaning solutions to name a few. Critter proof its home. Baby proof your home. If you have a question, no matter where you bought your critter, give me a call maybe I can help.
If you are wanting to get a new pet the first thing you need to do is call your local Fish and Wildlife Office and see if it is Legal. Laws change all the time. Be sure you can legally have the animal you want. Then do your research on caring for the animal.
Worms: Lets talk about worms. Next time you are in a pet store or farm store look at products that deworm your pet. The one we use has Pyrantel as active ingredient. It is for domestic dogs and pups. Read how many times it says to deworm your domestic pup. I am looking at a bottle of Nemex-2, a dog dewormer. It's label reads for treatment, at 2,3,4,6,8 and 10 weeks. This is for a domestic dog. A fox, raccoon, coatimundi, skunk, groundhog and about any pet needs to be dewormed on a regular basis. We deworm our babies at about three weeks, and then every 10 days for another month. Coon can carry brain worms, that are deadly to humans. If you have a pet coon deworm it. If you have an animal that is full of worms and you give it dewormer it usually gets a rectal blockage from dead worms and dies. That is why animals need to be dewormed on a regular schedule. If you want your animal tested for worms take your pet or a fresh fecal sample to your vet, He can check fresh fecal for worm eggs. If you have taken a baby coon from the wild it needs to be tested.
