Default 4 day old guinea pig losing fur?

Hi my guinea pig unexpectedly had 3 babies, unfortunately two died but one did survive. It's doing well and is eating and drinking. The problem is after a few minutes of it being born i checked it and it had a very small bold patch between the ears. I thought mum might be over grooming. But it's gradually lost more and more hair. Its not completely naked but its a lot. It's skin isn't red either.

Default Re: 4 day old guinea pig losing fur?

Is there any possibility that mum is a Baldwin (one of the two hairless types of piggie) carrier?

Can you take a picture of baby?
