Hi all, posted last night thinking Walt had been in a fight, but now in the daylight it looks different. Is it ringworm? Looks white crusty and his ear is pink. His eye looks affected by it too. Any thoughts? XWP_20150131_12_13_41_Pro.jpg

In which case they will both need to be treated at the same time when vet confirms, but I'd work on the fact it looks like it and follow the guide. Takes time but our piggies are worth it x
