My wife & I adopted a skunk a few months ago...she was & still is quite skiddish ( although slightly less now). We have made sure to feed all the right foods. She has filled out since we got her but she is not fat. Over the past few weeks we have noticed an increasing amount of hairloss & checked sites that suggested worms as a possible cause. We have wormed her a couple of times already & not only were there no worms in her stool but she is still losing hair & itching. We bought shampoo for fleas & lice which I haven't used yet because I see no signs of either. She has white & beige fur so I think that it would be easy to see & I see nothing. I don't want to traumatze her or put any more chemicals on her than I have to. We use aspen bedding in her litter boxes....is it possible that she is allergic to it? We are very concerned. She is a great eater & seems totally healthy otherwise. Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Rob
