hi, I'm a new user on this forum, just want to say hello to everyone to start off.
I've noticed that recently that on one of my rats their seems to hair thinning underneath the chin and around the cheek area. I have checked my other rat and she doesn't seem to be suffering the same problems. I feed them on a balanced diet, they always have water available, and they have a cleanout every week, as thorough as possible without making them uncomfortable. One thing that occurred to me was that the other rat can be a bit of a bully, so i was thinking that maybe the hair thinning could be due to stress. So far this is the only theory i have been able to come up with, any help would be greatly appreciated.

is the cage mate an excessive groomer? - sometimes as part of a dominance thing they will overgroom the other rat causing something like this.... only thing I can think of sorry.....
