Default Re: Missing Fur

Keep him dry and give him foods to help with coat health such as flax seed. If the patches seem really inflamed, you can put on a bit of neosporin on the chin. I would definitely bring him to a vet as they'll definitely know what is wrong (if it's even ammonia burn at all!) and will know how to make him feel all better

Thanks for the help. I'll make sure to do that and I'll make a vet appointment tomorrow.

I took him to the vet yesterday and they weren't really sure what it was. However, I've changed his wood shavings to paper based bedding (as I wanted to do that anyway), as I think he might have been having an allergy to the wood shavings. The ammonia burn or an allergy seem most likely, and I'm keeping an eye on him.

That sounds like a good idea. Hope he feels better soon!
