  4. Mouth: Re: Need help Can anyone tell me what this could be on his lip?

    Without being able to look at it in person it could be a number of things, it could be dry skin, it could be an old scab, but i think it is most likely to be a bit of dried boar glue.

    Hair Loss: Re: Found A tuft of fur, why?

    I wouldn't be super concerned by just the one tuft. It may simply be an old scab coming off from a small nip from another guinea pig. Just keep an eye on them for more, as sometimes fungal infections...
