Our skinny pig has some sortve bite or skin thingy on it. Does occasionally show agression towards other pigs but only dominance. Not sure if its a bite or something else. Also has dry skin patches. Anyone seen anything like this before? On her neck and bum seen in the link. The dry patches come and go.

It would be best to have your piggy seen by a vet and have the cuts and skin checked.

Is your piggy a boar or a sow and/or are you keeping more than two boars together?

4 sows including her. 2 babies also sharing the cage for now but theyve all got along fine. Another sow is pregnant. Its more just the first photo on the neck were fussed about because the dry skin seems to come and go

If they are having dominance issues then it’s possible it is the result of a nip but either way it needs checking out by a vet as it may need treatment

The neck one looks sore, I would get her seen by a vet.
