Default Re: My Mamster is losing fur

She isn't really that old so I wouldn't expect fur loss due to age yet.
Just a thought but does she pee where she sleeps? They can get fur loss like that from sleeping on wet substrate although you would normally begin to see redness of the skin too if that were the case.
What substrate do you use?
It is possible she may have a mite problem, other health problems like Cushing's seems less likely as the thinning of the fur usually begins toward the back of the body & progresses from there. It would be worth getting her checked out by your vet if you can't find any obvious reason or cause.
