Hi guys,

I just noticed one of my degus has a bald patch on his back, which looks a little red and a bit scabby. Also, he appears to be moaping about quite a bit, generally lethargic, and his eyes dont really looke that bright, im worried! He lives with another degu who seems fine.

He has been having dust baths quite a lot today and yesterday. Any idea of what it could be?

you should take him in to see a vet.. they will probably provide an anti-biotic and give you some suggestions. I would think that they had been fighting or that the other degu was over grooming him.. He just might not have noticed the fur was gone and kept grooming, causing it to bleed and scab over
