I have had my piggies for about a month and a half now. They're both about 1 year old. My Abyssinian piggy Chary has a scaly, scabbed wound on his left ear and I am worried about what it could be and how it got there. Any ideas what it could be?
Firstly welcome to the Forum.
You will get lots of great advice here.
It looks like it might possibly be fungal.
I would take him and his cage mate along to a vet and have it checked out.
If it is just one small sore then it should be fairly easy to treat, but the sooner you get it seen the easier it will be.
We are currently dealing with a fungal infection on one of our pigs and it has responded really well to a twice daily application of a special cream.
Good luck with it, and please let us know how you get on.
Thank you, I'm looking to get at an appointment within the next 2 days. It doesn't seem to be hurting him he just doesn't like his ears being touched but apart from that he isn't too bothered which is good.
