So last year I switched diets because my female was really stained/had cracked fur, underweight, etc. I didn't see any improvement for months, but this past week or so, I noticed that there is a dark spot on her stripe. When she was a joey, her fur was MUCH darker but it lightened up. I'm just curious if a poor diet could have caused her fur to powder out and if a better diet could cause some re-coloring of those parts. 🤔

It does take a while for color to change once they are put on a good diet. I notice it takes about 2 months to see results in the rescues that come in.
I feed Critterlove Plus with the recommended salad mixtures and all the gliders here are on it.
