    My hamster, Rainbow, is over 2 ½ now and she's lost a lot of her fur which is to be expected. The issue is I've noticed a few nips and a small scab on her. There are two little pink spots on her front legs (one on each) and a small scab on her side. Rainbow's skin also gets quite dry and flakey sometimes so I'm thinking the nipping may be from her getting irritated.
    If someone could suggest something to help with her dry skin and stop the nipping that would be amazing and greatly appreciated!!

    If her skin is dry maybe massage a little bit of coconut oil on her skin :)
