Just checked Scrambled Egg tonight (the itsy bitsy little mouse from the nasty pet shop) and he seems to have lost some hair. On closer inspection his skin is slightly red on his back where it has happened and there is a tiny (so small I almost didn't see it) little soft lump, almost like a spot but skin coloured. He is only 5 weeks old so if I take him to the vets the medicine could make him really ill as they don't recommend anything until they are 12 weeks old and I dont know what to do!!! I don't think it's mites or lice as he isn't scratching. Toast is really cleaning him though - could it be barbarism?? Incase it is lice/mites can anyone suggest a natural remedy I can try until I can get him to the vet to check him out as they don't open again until Friday :sosp::sad: He seems to be eating ok but is a little cold - I've just put this down to him being so small just now and he seems happy in his sock and sleeps with Toast during the day and he enjoys holding onto fingers so other than the patchy coat and redness he seems ok. :cryin: Please please please please help!!! Any and all help gladly taken!!!!
