Hi, all. Brand new here and I need some advice! We noticed today, Tilly (she's our year and a half old chin that we love very much!!) is losing hair around her right eye. I do not know if this constitutes an emergency but from what I've read any sign of sickness in a chin needs to be addressed immediately. So far she is not exhibiting any unusual behavior and is playful as always! My question is should I be running to an emergency vet or even making an appointment? I read tinactin in the dust bath was a possible treatment for fungal infections, which I do not know if thats what it is. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! 20210609_200041.jpg

my chinchilla has the same problem,but we know she has malocclusion so when we that happen we schedule an appointment to trim her teeth. I would take her to the vet asap to check for overgrown teeth. It could be just a simple eye infection, caused by irritation from hay or dust, or something more serious like a final or bacterial infection, regardless id say check her into a vet
