Hi everyone!

I have a young guinea pig who's skin is flaking off on his back and growing into his hair. Bindi has previously been treated for mites so that wouldn't be the cause.

Please reply if you have experienced anything similar..

Thanks!🤍

I haven’t had anything like that with my piggies, but I think it would be better for you to take him to the vet.

:agr: Flaky skin could be for all kinds of reasons, you need to take piggy to a vet.
Just because they’ve been treated for mites before, doesn’t mean it isn’t it again
