    Cookie has a small patch on the nape of her neck...not a scab as such but flakey skin...has almist taken a layer of skin off...no blood though.

    Is this mites? Or what else could it be?

    No sign on any of the babies.

    We've just had our Tilly to vets for same thing. Looked like she had bad dandruff clumps.
    She was diagnosed with 'danda mites'. The vet showed me them under the microscope ...uurgh..
    5 weekly injections needed

    Sounds like mites to me hun, I'd pop her to the vets to get an ivermectine(sp) injection.

    sometimes they have reactions to their injections but if youve not had her long then it could well be mites

    This is so annoying...I keep them all inside...and the cage is clean etc! I just don't get it. I haven't really researched fur mites though. Bah!
