Tattered Ears – Vasculitis?

A few of my young degus (5 months old) have developed tattered ears the past month or so. I took one of them to the vet to make sure they did not have mites or a fungal infection. He thinks it may be vasculitis or something similar to this where "the blood supply to the ear margins is compromised causing the skin to doe and slough off."

Does any one have a degu with this disorder or have another explanation for tattered, raw ears?

I haven't seen any severe fighting between these degus – they all get along fine and all are active and otherwise healthy.
