    Hair Loss My piggie is losing hair....

    We've made an appointment, but I was hoping that it would something I can treat myself. Vet bills can get pretty expensive.

    She came from the local pet store. The nearest shelter is about 5 hours away. The other guinea pig came from a friend that couldn't keep him anymore.

    Hair Loss My piggie is losing hair....

    None of mine have been treated for mites that I know of. The first one I introduced was a few years old and the second was still very young. That was a couple months ago. She started losing hair a few weeks later. I've never had a guinea pig lose hair or get sick.

    Hair Loss My piggie is losing hair....

    Her fur has already started to grow back in some spots. She's starting to look like a normal guinea pig again. She was looking pretty scary. So, it is most likely mites that caused the hair loss?

    Alright, I'll try bathing her. If it was a fungus or mites, wouldn't my other pigs have hair loss too?

    Hair Loss My piggie is losing hair....

    There isn't any crustiness or sores. That was the first thing I checked her for. Her skin doesn't look irritated at all and the hair loss doesn't seem to bother her. Could low vitamin C cause hair loss? I've tried researching it, but not much comes up. Or could stress over new guinea pigs cause...

    Is there any way to tell if it's mites? She isn't scratching and none of my other pigs are losing hair. It's just her.

    Hair Loss My piggie is losing hair....

    My female guinea pig, Snickers, has been losing fur all over her body. She was missing patches of fur on her face, but it all grew back. Some fur has also started growing back on her body. Still, she is missing a lot of hair. I was wondering if anyone knew what could have caused this and what I...

    Hello, everyone!

    Thanks! I'm going to try and post some tomorrow. My profile picture on here is of Twix and Snickers. :) Their names kind of match their colors and markings.

    Hello, everyone!

    Thanks for the help! I've actually been looking at KMS Hayloft. I'm going to look around locally, but if I can't find anything then that is where I'll probably get my hay from. Right now, I have them all in different cages. My three females used to be together in a big wooden cage that my...

    Hello, everyone!

    My name is Jodie. I've had guinea pigs for about five years now. I currently have four piggies: Twix (the oldest), Snickers, Milkyway, and Reese (the youngest). I'm not sure how they all ended up being named after chocolate, but I think it's cute. I'm actually looking for a good place to buy hay...
