"Hi, I'm in NZ and have a small possum. (my kids found it and are attached... we are going through the permit process at the moment). I think it is a brushtail. Over here, we have a problem with TB in possums. My lil guy has recently lost a bit of fur where he can scratch and also has a very small dark patch on the top of his head where it appears through scratching he has now caused an irritation and has a small dotty red ring around the spot. I am concerned that this may be the first warning signs of TB. However, we also have been giving him milk and now I read that is a bad idea... so it could be that too. I don't want to be endangering my family with having a sick possum and not know it! Any suggestions... (p.s. the vets here will not treat them as they are pests)."
