I was brushing my piggie and noticed some large white flakes in his fur that looked a lot like human dandruff. I had him tested for mites a couple months ago (he got a shot), so I’m pretty sure it’s not mites. The flakes were quite large and mainly near his rear and back. He scratches a fair amount as well. He also has no bald spots except behind his ears. So…what should I do?

Thanks

My cat gets dandruff and it’s usually dry skin. If your piggy isn’t eating and is losing weight it could be a sign of parasites. If the fur is dull go to your vet.
