    Strange rash/ bald spot on boar’s back, could be mites...?

    Last night when I went to hold all my boars (I have four) Floyd had a strange scabby patch on his back with missing hair. I haven’t noticed it before now and I hold them all often.

    Red skin surrounded by Dry Skin Circle on bottom

    Hi all, I just noticed on my boar's bottom (he's about 5-6 months old) a reddish spot that has dry skin flaking/peeling away from the center of it. There is a picture attached to this post. Can anyone help me identify what this could be?

    Small Black Patch by Butt

    I have just gotten a new guinea pig today and he seems completely healthy behavior wise, but when I was letting him run around in a pen by himself for a bit I noticed a little black patch right above his butt/lower back area.

    Skinny pig skin condition?

    My skinny pig Penelope has developed dry skin with white patches. I gave her a bath and messaged her with coconut oil which seemed to help the top of her (her skin went back to normal) but she's got white patches all over her tummy which I am not sure what they are. I will post pictures as its...

    Ear Falling Off

    Hi everyone, I'm a relatively new guinea pig owner, and I seem to be having a problem right now. My girl's left ear always had two patches of black skin, and we thought nothing of it, I kind is dismissed it as just the colour of her skin. But Today I can see one of the patches of black is...

    Scratching Piggy?

    Hi, haven't posted for a while, so anyway. Duncan had a scratching session! Over a minute of scratching with his leg, his mouth, it was awful to watch. There are tiny white specks in his fur, is that related? I've asked mum to take them to the vet, aaaand... She says she doesn't want it to be a...
