Hi! I wasn’t sure what thread to put this in. My piggie, Al, seems to have some minor dry skin? Does anyone know why? Or what I can do? His appetite is just fine and he isn’t losing weight or anything.

Hi!

Can you please post a picture?

'Dry skin' can cover anything from a single skin flake to skin parasites or a fungal skin infection in member posts... We need a little more information in order to be able to give you any advice at all.

I can try! He’s my wiggly-est piggie out of all of them. Best way to describe it is very very mild dandruff
