Took my boys out for a check over and cuddle.. his nose is all scabbed over now thankfully! But still looks awful, I found what looks like a scab on the rim at the bottom of his eye. Possibly from his fight the other day?
Can they take a few days to show? :( hoping it is just a scab and nothing else!

Have you had him checked for ring worm? Scab under eye could be from him having a scratch and nothing more, he may have just caught himself on a sharp nail

He had quite a bad fight with his ex cage mate.. hole in his nose and lip.. hadn’t thought of ringworm. But I imagine it’s a result of his fight

I took in a rescue piggy with history. Ripped ears and apparently chunks took out of him when they first got him. Your boy will heal, but it'll take time, don't know if it was sibling rivalry or a rabbit. He's being neutered next week in the hope eventually he'll be living with my ladies
