I have a female skinny pig who is most likely around 11 months old (this is an estimate from a vet as i bought her from a PetSmart that i work at). I've noticed that when petting her head and back, a seemingly large amount of her hair falls out. Due to skinny pigs not having a lot of hair to start with, should i be concerned about this or is this something that is fairly common? I've never owned a guniea pig or skinny pig before her so i am fairly new to this whole thing!

Thanks in advance!

That's normal (for a Skinny) to lose more of their fuzz as they age.
