Hello, my guinea pig is shedding quite a bit of hair with black bits at the root of the hair, she is not scratching at all, this is only happening on her black fur not the white or brown . Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you, this is my first post .

Could it be skin flakes attached to the hair? Is there any sign of bald patches developing?

Sounds like a bit of fungal, do you have a good vet that is savvy with piggies?
