Hi,
I was just wondering, did the vet do a skin scraping? What fungal disease do they think she has? I would still think that it might be mites. Unless they did a scraping how would they know for sure. I don't know of any disease that they could be referring to. Seriously, I would probably treat her (or have the vet treat her) with Revolution for puppies/kittens. You put one tiny drop between the shoulders and perhaps one more on the rump if she is a larger hog, but in any case...are there like circular dry spots around her quills? Is the vet you are going to one that specializes in small mammals?
