    Dry skin, dandruff, or something else

    After an incident about a year ago with guinea pig lice, I regularly check my boys skin/hair for anything wrong.

    Something large stuck in his bum

    I noticed that there was a pink patch on my piggies fleece and assumed it was my 4/5 year old boar as it was in his spot where he sleeps all the time.

    I Noticed My Piggy Had Some Woodshavings Up His Bum, Horrible Smell To Continue. (boars)

    Obviously the anus isn't the best smelling part of the piggy, but my god. I put my thumbs on each cheek (he was on my chest, looking down) and I spread them out. Turns out their anus can... Open up? If that makes any sense. There was some hay and some woodshavings, and I was going to grab a...
