I'm just wondering. Do Abyssinian guinea pigs shed more them other breeds of guineapigs..We adopt Cupcake last Febraury and she has always shedding like crazy. She has no bald spots at all.. When we cuddle her, we have to change our shirts or the pee pad that she lays on..Or is it that she is a nervous guinea pigs..Which she is!!

I've found that my American pig (I think that's what they're called?) sheds way more than my Abyssinian. It could just be an individual piggie thing. As long she doesn't show any signs of parasite/fungal infections, I don't think it's something to worry about.

Your guinea pig is really, really adorable, by the way. :)

This is a good site to check out when you have guinea pig health concerns.
