    Sore On The Belly Of Our Boar

    We've just discovered this sore on the belly of our long haired Peruvian Boar - Drew. Just wondering if anyone could point us in the direction of what this may be. Think he does have some mite issues at the moment as does seem to be itching a bit. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
