Losing hair on tail

Postby Cweirup » Sun Jun 16, 2019 1:57 pm

Can somebody please help. I have 2 young flying squirrels about 9 months old. All of the sudden 1 of them has the hair missing down the center of her tail. Her cage mate doesn't seem to have her hair missing, and I can't get them to the vet for a week. I read the other post about molting but the res of her hair seems fine. Her skin isn't red and doesn't seem flaky. So I'm hoping someone came give me s ok me advice.

Thank you

Sometimes just part of the tail fur will molt. Mine did this with a molt too
