I have had GP3 for a few months now, and he has been treated on and off for what was assumed to be a fungal infection? When we cuddle him he leaves behind a lot of hair? No amount of fungal shampoo has improved this problem, and we are about to try a 4th one. However I am beginning to wonder if it is the grease from his grease gland causing the hair loss? It is only around his rump where he is losing the excess hair? About 6-7 at a time when gently pulled? Has anyone else experienced this with their piggies? The hair does get quite greasy around it? It has been trimmed and he is washed regularly with Swarfega but it is still quite active? Just wondering if this is a possibility rather than it being fungal!
