So my foster guinea pig has this white stuff in his fur that looks like dandruff but I'm not even sure guinea pigs can get dandruff so I was thinking maybe lice but when my guinea pigs have previously had lice they were black not white. So now I'm really not sure what it is. Any ideas?

Can you post a picture?

Do you see anything crawling on the pig?

Is the white stuff attached to the hair shaft so that you have to pinch it and pull it off, or does it easily flake off?

It's really loose and just sort of falls of of his fur and there doesn't really seem to be any kind of crawling bugs that I can see. We gave him a good wash as well and it still seems to be there.
