This problem can be caused by several health problems. This is a common problem of female cavies that have been repeatedly bred. As a rule, it happens with each successive pregnancy. Sometimes this problem can be noted in juvenile cavies in a weakened state at or around the time of weaning. “Barbering” is also a problem of the same type. It is a kind of bad habit that occurs when cavies habitually chew on the coats of cavies that are lower in the social “pecking order.” Younger cavies in particular, can lose large amounts of coat as a result of this behavior. The guinea pig hair loss occurrence along with information on other small animals such as chicks and moles can be found on most pet care sites with a photo section.
