  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Maryland's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Maryland's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Baltimore county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Pikesville animal control for wildlife issues.

Pikesville Wildlife Removal Tip: What are some of the symptoms of a sick groundhog?

Groundhogs are medium-sized rodents that are also called woodchucks. They are naturally found in wooded areas throughout most areas of The United States. Their small stature hides a feisty creature that should not be approached without cause. They do not make good pets and should be treated as the wild animals that they are.

A sick groundhog

Compared to other rodents, groundhogs carry very few diseases. The most common disease that they carry is rabies. Even that is not as prevalent as in some other animals. Healthy groundhogs are not carriers of the rabies virus. They can become infected through bites from infected animals.


As groundhogs are wild animals, you will seldom be able to determine whether they are exhibiting strange symptoms. There are a few things to be on the lookout for if there is a groundhog in your area that you are concerned about.

Diarrhea. Loose bowels are one way to identify a sick groundhog. It could just be something that they ate but could indicate something more serious. You will need to watch it for a few days to see whether it is getting better.

Foaming at the mouth. This is a sign of rabies. Even though groundhogs do not often contract rabies it is not impossible. If you do see a groundhog foaming at the mouth, you will need to phone animal control. They will come and get rid of it.

Aggression. Groundhogs are not friendly creatures. They will try to stay away from people where possible. However, they will not attack unless they are provoked. If a groundhog is overly aggressive without cause, it might be rabid.

Limping or injured limb. If you see a groundhog that is hurt you can contact a wildlife rehabilitation center. It might just be an old injury that healed incorrectly. In this case the groundhog will have adapted to it and will be fine if left alone. The only time you should intervene is if it seems to be in distress.

How to help

If you feel that the groundhog needs your help you could try to intervene. It is not advised, though. Groundhogs are wild animals and they generally sort themselves out when they are ill. The only reason to intervene is if you see an animal suffering or if it poses a threat to the health and safety of others.
