    Hi! I'm new to the forum, and could use some advice. I have a 2 year old female mouse named "O". She started scratching herself and drinking an excessive amount of water about two months ago. I read (on this forum and online) that I could try Benadryl in her water and put triple antibiotic...

    I have a 8-10 year old male Lion Head mix rabbit. He is not nuetered and he is a house rabbit. I groom him every other day, but I check him over every day and I noticed today that when I was grooming him, he has a little bald sort of patch under his chin, on his shoulder, and even more so just...
  3. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    Sister's hamster looks like a zombie? I moved away about a month ago and I just came to visit my parents yesterday. I saw that my little sister's hamster had gotten disturbingly sick looking. It makes me cringe just to look at him, that's how bad it is. He doesn't have any hair on his back...
  4. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Hey gang, advice needed. My old man Tucker is going bald. He had tumor removal about two or three months ago. They shaved a bald patch in his side. It was growing back well, but then I noticed it wasn't filling in completely. I thought, he's getting older, maybe his hair just isn't growing...

  6. Prairie Dog Discussion
    My prairie dog is losing patches of hair. I read online that this may just be a seasonal thing, but other sites said it can be alopecia. I brought him to two different vets. One just checked for parasites, not knowing what else to do and the other didn't really do anything. They both said...

  8. Cats
    Our cat Magic has been licking/chewing her own hair out in places. It started over a year ago when the cat still lived with her old owner/ my s.o.'s ex-gf. At that time it was just one patch on her hip about the size of a quarter and we hadn't a clue as to why/what. It started getting bigger and...

    Hello all, my name is Jesica and I am new to your forum. I have high hopes you all can help answer my question! I have a one and a half year old Alaskan Malamute named Aliah and I believe she suffered from flea allergy dermatitis. We had a terrible flea problem which we have since eradicated...
  10. Rabbit Discussion
    After a courageous battle with this, that, and the other... I am sad to report that I lost my little Dude on Wednesday. Kathydip, all I could do was remember what I read in your posts about Tabby. Making the decision to put Dude down was oh so difficult but only fair to him. He was not doing so...

  12. Degu Discussion
    My mama degu had babies, 7 big babies. They're about 3 weeks now, and I think mama is losing leg hair. My dad thought it was from her habit of sitting under the wheel while daddy was running in it, and grinding off a patch of fur. Now her fur is lost on both knees, and I"m not sure if it has...

    Hello, I have a 7 month old Mini Rex doe and the last few days she has had discharge from both eyes.

  19. Guinea Pig Discussion
    Hi! I'm new here and I have a few questions. My family has 2 female guinea pigs, named Anika and Eleanor. Sometimes when I hold them they start to try to eat my hair. They aren't just chewing on it - they're really trying to eat it. Is this normal? Will it hurt them if they swallow any hair? We...
