So a couple of weeks ago i noticed a pink patch on the neck of my 23 week old boar, Milo. I thought nothing of it. It doesnt seem to be causing pain and he isnt scratching. It is a little pink patch about the size of a 1p coin. It has a tiny pin prick of a red dot and some small bits of dead skin. I'm a little worried it could be mites but it might just be a little bit of thin hair, he is long haired. Can someone please help me diagnose it. Any kind of help would be much appriciated
Thank you

Please bear in mind that we may be able to suggest what this patch might be, but you need to take Milo to the vet for a proper diagnosis and treatment, if necessary.
