My guinea pig has this small scab thing on his nose. It dosnt seem to go
Away. Here's a picture: [GuineaPigCages.com] Scab thing
Notice the baldish spot. There's small bits of dandruffy stuff on it.
The 'scab ' is white. IS this a scab or parasite thing?
 
Oh, and the spot is on his nose and it seems that the hair around it is pretty
Loose.
 
How much would it cost to go to the vet to check on this kind of thing?
 
Ditto Petlovr. Call your vet and ask how much it would cost.
 
Human medicine?

Is it okay to put human med. On gpigs?
My gpig has some kind of ringworm thing on his nose.
 
Re: Human medicine?

Do not give human medications to your guinea pig. You do not know what is dangerous and could kill a pig. Also dosages could be and will be totally incorrect.
If your pig is sick take him/her to an exotic vet to get the proper care and medications he/she would need. Guessing could cost you the life of your pig.
 
Re: Human medicine?

Over the counter fungus treatments for humans are fine for use in guinea pigs.
