Riker has had this yellow patch for a couple of months. I thought it was his natural colouring at first but I now doubt this. Could it be a thermal burn? There was an incident where his thermostat sensor slipped & the temperature rocketed to 100F! I became concerned this week when I noticed his shed skin didn't come off this patch. Do I need to get him to the vet and get some ointment on him?
