Can raccoon’s cause severe damage to me and my New York home? The answer is yes, they certainly can. Raccoon’s are known to carry a multitude of infectious agents that can be harmful to your health, including bacteria, viruses, and parasites. Leptospirosis is a common bacteria that raccoon’s carry. The bacteria is often transferred by raccoon urine contaminating a water source. After the first stage’s flu-like symptoms, the second phase of the bacterial disease includes renal failure and liver damage. Luckily, the disease can be treated. Another common disease carried by the raccoon is the Canine distemper virus infection, which spreads from contaminated water and food. Almost indistinguishable from rabies, the virus can greatly affect your beloved family pet. If not caught quickly enough, the virus can be fatal.
