Missing Hair right arm/chest area????

Postby rover » Wed Oct 27, 2010 10:41 pm

Hello everyone, I just had a question about my little Ardilla. She is just over a year old and has already had a molt of her tail it has all grown back now. The other day I was feeding her a nut and noticed as she was standing on her hind legs reaching for the nut that she is missing her fur under her right leg/arm it is really bare and pink. Is she over grooming herself there? or is Bobo the boy squirrel pulling out her fur? or is this a strange type of a molt? etc. She seems to be active and healthy other than she is missing her fur on the right side of her chest/under her arm. I will try to get a picture to post. Any help or advice is appreciated thanks!!!! :n00b: :n00b:

I'd bet it's overgrooming. Bobo would be missing more than fur if he was pulling it out of her. :twisted:

Thanks Joan, it must have been over grooming because it is starting to grow back fur again. Thanks for the response!!!! :bday:
