I recently picked up a Skinny cavy boar. The person that originally rescued the guinea pig did not know anything about them or how to care for them and turned to me since I raise guinea pigs.
He has been with me now for about 3 months and seems to be doing well. But I noticed he seems to have a few patches of dry skin. I feed my cavies a high quality feed from Heinhold(scroll to the bottom) that all of my cavies enjoy and have thrived on. None of my other pigs seem to be having a dander problem or dry skin issues but they all have fur.
They have pine shavings bedding and grass hay provided in addition to their foot with occasional Red Pepper and corn husk treats.
Is there any thing I can safely put on my skinny cavy's skin to help with the dry skin?
Here is a picture of a skinny cavy for those wondering what they look like. The hair on the nose is the difference between a skinny and a naked (naked cavies have no hair at all)
