Hi
I've just noticed a dry patch above my Guinea pigs eye. Does anyone know what it might be? I'm thinking of keeping an eye on it to see if it gets better and take to the vet if not clearing in a few days

You can add a photo by clicking on the ’attach files’ button below the message box.
we cannot diagnose though, only a vet can do that prescribe the correct treatment.
ln the face, near the eyes is a typical place for ringworm to start though so, while without a picture we can’t even guess, it is a possibility. ringworm being highly contagious means you should exercise rigorous hygiene and see a vet promptly.

Ok.. I will make an appointment with the vet. I can't see the attach file button. Maybe because I'm on my phone. Will try on laptop after tea! Thank you
