SPRINGTIME MEANS WILDLIFE BABIES. WHAT TO DO?

FROM OUR STAFF:

Veterinary technician Addie is interested in wildlife rehabilitation.  Addie says:

Every spring Cedar Pet Clinic gets numerous calls on wildlife animals, especially babies.  Here are some common problems humans run into with wildlife babies.  Please remember that animals do much better out in the wild.  If they are healthy and still being cared for by their parents, they must not be baby-raccoondisturbed.  Wildlife animals become very stressed when they come in contact with humans.  We do not recommend feeding a wild animal, for they have very specific nutritional requirements.  In the state of Minnesota, it is illegal to rehabilitate wildlife without a correct license or to keep them as pets.  Please use common sense when it comes to wild animals.  They will bite, they carry diseases and they do not make good pets.  We are all animal lovers but please do not attempt to take care of an abandoned or injured wild animal.  You maybe end up doing more harm than good.  If you are concerned and unsure of what to do,  please call Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Minnesota in Roseville, Cedar Pet Clinic Lake Elmo or a veterinary hospital close to you.
