Question ham is losing furr on her butt?



Is what she has.. She acts and appears otherwise healthy. sorry for my legs o.O My mom refuses to take my hamsters/rodents to the vet so I figured I'd ask here.. under her belly in the back is also a bit bald..


What I was thinking:
Maybe its scrapping off because of her tubes? She is a bit big o.O

I was also considering it was a vitamin thing, since she doesn't appear to have mites or anything..

Please help? Thank you guys<3

is it only on the one side? If its on more then the one spot it could be cushings. I have used sudocrem before to take redness and iritation down, I hope she looks better soon hun x

She's not even a year old yet, I don't see how it could be Cushings.. She doesn't scratch at it and there's no dark marks or anything either. I've had her since late august 2011.. It was actually a much smaller area a bit back, the hair came back, then it thinned out again. it's only on that side.

My first thought is Cushing's as well :/ They tend to lose fur on their bellies first. Gemma got Cushing's when she was about a year old....
